C.J. Anderson: It would be huge for Kirk Cousins to come to Denver

Von Miller isn’t the only Broncos player trying to recruit quarterback Kirk Cousins to Denver.

The linebacker made the rounds in Minneapolis on Wednesday doing what he could to make the case that the Broncos are the right landing spot for the impending free agent. Anderson pointed to wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas along with himself as players that would round out a better offense with a quarterback like Cousins at the helm.

“It would be huge having a guy like Kirk. Veteran guy, been through it. It would be huge to come to us, a veteran team,” Anderson said on NFL Network. “We know some pieces are going to change, but if we can keep some of the pieces on our offensive end — myself, Emmanuel, DT — our offense can be what we want it to be.”

Linebacker Brandon Marshall signaled the direction Broncos players want the team to take earlier this month and the copious amounts of airtime afforded by Super Bowl week have amplified the message. Other Broncos may take the same opportunity to let Cousins know he’s wanted, although it seems unlikely that Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian will be in that group.

  1. Still amazed that Mr Ed thought it was a good idea to go with Lynch & Siemian last year. SMDH. Said it last year and will repeat it…the 2018 starter isn’t on the roster yet.

  2. .
    With so many players under so many busses, it would probably be cheaper for the Broncos to just purchase Greyhound.

  3. Suck or not,must be nice knowing you have the support of your teammates. (Lynch/Siemien/Os)They successfully lobbied to get Joseph retained and now they want to choose the next QB. If I’m Elway, I’d sign anyone bit Cousins for an array of reasons. And CJ, you do realize that his signing would signal the end of your time in Denver. They’d save 4mil by dumping you I believe and they will need every penny.

  4. I had a good time tonight. I think you really hot but…your…I don’t know how to say this but…I feel that you are too old for me and that I should find someone a little closer to my own age.

    Ahhh…Don’t be like that? I didn’t want to hurt you.

  5. Not a bronco fan but they are correct. In the past 3 or 4 years, Cousins is near the top of every qb stat there is. Its impressive how far he single handedly brought the dsyfunctional skins.

  6. Horse teeth will try to low ball Cousins since the donkeys need cap space…BUT don’t think that will stop them from circumventing the cap since Elway has experience in that dept of cheating.

  7. In order for Denver to do this they have to cut some salaries. Cousins could maybe help the Broncos of two years ago but not a weakened team. Cousins is not worth the money he will demand.

  8. How much of an upgrade over Trevor Siemian and Osweiler is Cousins? Not much. Put Cousins behind that joke of an offensive line and he won’t look much better than their current QB’s.

  9. I’m sorry Broncos fans but why would Cousins choose your franchise? Seriously looking for reasons back.

    From my outlook you have $26.8 million in salary cap space, of that $11 million (estimated) goes to your draft class. footballoutsiders rated your offensive line 2017 as having the 29th best pass blocking and 9th best run blocking (he cares more about the pass blocking I’m sure). Your defense is ranked 11th with the 2nd ranked rush defense and 15th ranked pass defense (also if you cut Charles Harris or Talib to save cap, I’m sure that defensive rating will be lowered on the pass end, all speculation). There are other variable things to consider like a winning culture (super bowls by current regime), location, coach chemistry and his system.

    So tampering doesn’t exist anymore right?

    How is tampering bud?? Cousins is not under contract.

    How many players will Denver have to cut to sign Cousins?
    The team that had one of the deepest offenses and one of the deepest defenses somehow still had enough money to sign Peyton Manning Emanual Sanders and Wes Welker.
