Von Miller continues to recruit Kirk Cousins to Denver.

During Super Bowl week, the Broncos linebacker said the quarterback is just what Denver needs to “take us over the edge.”

Miller now has started a social-media campaign, taking his recruiting efforts directly to Cousins.

Cousins posted a photo on Instagram showing two different kinds of cereals with the caption, “I was raised on these two cereals. ‘Bout time they were brought back into our home.” That prompted Miller to answer, “Raised eating both. Breakfast lunch and dinner lol”.

Cousins responded to Miller, saying, “nothing but the best.”

After Cousins later posted a photo showing a rainbow in Grand Cayman with the caption, “Love a good rainbow,” someone noted that Miller likely loves rainbows, too.

“You’re absolutely right! If Kirk loves rainbows, I LOVE RAINBOWS!” Miller replied.

It will take more than nice words to entice Cousins to Denver, but Miller is trying to do what he can to upgrade the team’s quarterback position.

  1. Be careful what you wish for Von. There’s a reason they call him Kirk “Plays Like His Parents Are” Cousins

  2. Did Elway put Von up to this to circumvent tampering rules? Seems a bit creepy for Von. Also a slap in the face to the other Bronco QBs, …um, I seem to have forgotten their names already. And soon will the NFL will forget about them too.

  3. Nice effort by Von but Cousins is all about the money. He refused to sign every long term agreement that the Redskins presented to him over the past 3 years and was franchise tagged twice. He seeks to be the highest paid player in the NFL and he’ll go to the highest bidder. Von’s rainbows are nice but Denver will have to pony up very big $ guaranteed to get Cousins’ signature. Some of us think he’s good but not worth top $.

  4. There is no way the Broncos will outbid the Jets for Cousins, Elway just comes off as desperate at this point to boot. What can they offer Cousins? Demaryius Thomas who has underwhelmed recently? Emmanuel Sanders without DT? a defense without Talib, or a defense with Talib but without Chris Harris? They are just cash strapped. Even Enunwa, Anderson, and Austin Seferian Jenkins with some young talent like Adams, Maye, Lee, and Williams is more enticing than that situation.

  5. Hey Von, do you want him bad enough to take a HUGE pay cut? Because that’s what it will take. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck with you, a QB who hasn’t proved anything in the playoffs and not much else.

  6. I still remember Broncos fans bragging they can win without a QB. Now Von is on his knees begging Cousins to rescue them. What a dumpster fire.

  7. Lol at the people still knocking Cousins. He has been top ten in every meaningful category since he became a starter 3 years ago, and is now a FA. The world is his oyster.

  8. wcman,

    Lol at people that think a bunch of garbage time td passes and yards constitute a top ten qb. He’s also top ten in qb turnovers but I bet you won’t mention that.

    You know what other category that he’s not in the top 10? Qb wins. Cousins is the definition of fools gold.

    They already did, See SB 50.

  10. Cousins haters have never let facts stand in their way to diss the man.

    The ultimate payback for these clowns is when he proves them all wrong and wins a Super Bowl.

    Party on, haters. You prove every day that dog piles don’t think.

  11. Strange to see a guy advocating for his own pay cut. Remember history, you won super bowl with average qb, Philly won with average qb. You could probably win Bridgewater and number of decent backups provided the defense is restocked. No way that horse is bringing in cousins at 30 mil

    As a Patriots fan I remember they had a QB who outplayed Brady in the AFCC game to make it to SB 50 by scoring twice as many TDs.

  13. Taking us “over the edge”… can’t get the image of Rex Ryan and a Birkenstock catalog out of my head

  14. I think there is very little chance the Bronco’s cash in on the Cousin’s sweepstakes. First of all….the Broncos cap situation is not that great. To get cousin’s they will have to gut their team to make cap space. If cousin’s is saying he wants to win, that’s not going to be good in the way of getting him to go to Denver.

    Unless Cousin’s takes a huge pay cut I just don’t see him going to Denver. If he really wants to win and get paid the ideal spot is MN. MN even thou they had a rough outing in the NFC Title game, still have a very talented team. A top 5 defense, a young up and coming running back in Dalvin Cook, good offensive weapons like Diggs, Thielan, and Rudolph. A decent offensive line. Also MN has the cap space without having to cut talent.

    If Cousin’s just wants money….he will go to the Jets, or the Browns.

  15. MN might be a better spot for 1 year. All this players you mention are no different than any other player. They all want to get paid. So, if MN decides to pay Cousins because you say they have cap space that will only last a year or 2 until all those aforementioned players will need new contracts.

    Sustainable success means players have to want to win more than their desire to be the highest paid player ( see Tom Brady ). If Cousins demands 30 million per year he will not be winning anything anytime soon, no matter who pays him
