The level of interest from the Cardinals’ front office remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt that the Cardinals’ players want Kirk Cousins to be their quarterback.
Cardinals running back David Johnson tweeted today that he’s eager to have Cousins in Arizona.
“C’mon, Kirk Cousins, stop messing with everyone and tell them you’re coming to the desert,” Johnson wrote.

Johnson joins Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald in trying to convince Cousins to sign with the Cardinals. Cousins referred to Fitzgerald as “a great recruiter.”
The Cardinals need a quarterback, but they have nowhere near as much cap space as other quarterback-needy teams, including the Browns, Jets, Vikings and Broncos. It seems unlikely that Cousins will end up in Arizona, as much as the team’s top players want him to be there.
