Patrick Peterson makes a pitch for Kirk Cousins

AP

Broncos linebacker Von Miller and running back C.J. Anderson made pitches for Kirk Cousins to come to Denver this week, but they aren’t the only players whose teams are in need of a quarterback.

There’s also the Cardinals, who are in the market for help at the position after the retirement of Carson Palmer. During an appearance on PFT Live from Radio Row in Minneapolis this week, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson used Arizona’s weather and stadium as part of his sales effort.

“Either him or Nick Foles,” Peterson said when asked who he wants to see at quarterback. “The only thing I’ll probably say we have better than Denver is that we play inside. You don’t have to worry about snow games, you don’t have to worry about cold games and 9 times out of 10 we don’t play a cold team late in December. I think that will add a couple more years to your career, Kirk.”

Arizona is projected to have much less cap space than the Jets, who many believe will be involved in the Cousins chase, and the Broncos are also set to have more cash on hand. Foles is under contract to the Eagles for next season, so the Cardinals would have to trade for him and that might be a more realistic option if the Cardinals can’t find more money to throw in Cousins’ direction.

  1. I don’t know why people keep bringing up the Jets as a likely destination. Cousins has made a boatload of money. I believe him when he says he wants to play for a contender. The Jets and Browns May offer a little more, but Cousins will end up in Arizona or Denver because they have the best rosters out of the teams looking for a qb

  2. All these players making public comments about player acquisition and coaching decisions is a bit silly. The coaches should coach, the GMs should make personnel decisions and the players – well they should focus on getting in shape so they can show up to camp ready to – need I say it – play.

    Hey Pat, I think that there’s a QB in NE that has some longevity to his career. He happens to play outdoors too I think.
    ”””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””””

    But if he played indoors, He might play until 50

    LOL

  4. Wonder if Patrick and Miller would take a pay cut because that is what it might take. Cousins is going to cost way too much for what he is. His record vs winning teams shows he is an average QB at best.

    WRONG! players absolutely have the right to say who they want to play with, doesn’t mean it will happen but they should come out and say it. Players play, that is why they know who it is they want to play with.

  6. “9 times out of 10 we don’t play a cold team late in December.”

    You also don’t play in January or February. Why would Cousins come there? Because he wants to go 6-10 every year?
