Kirk Cousins has a film crew documenting his free agency experience

Tom Brady isn’t the only NFL quarterback who has a camera crew documenting his life.

Kirk Cousins, who is expected to sign a huge contract in the coming days, has decided to document all of it with a film crew following him around as he explores his options in free agency.

“We are opening up our home to allow a behind-the-scenes look into what really transpires before the contract number scrolls across the bottom line of ESPN,” Cousins told Adam Schefter.

It is unclear where the footage will eventually air, but Cousins has a website that has already drawn attention once in his free agency journey, when he tagged the Jets and Vikings in a farewell post. That would be a natural place to post this video footage, which should be of interest — especially to the team that eventually signs Cousins.

  1. I’m sick of this guy.
    I pray my team doesn’t sign him.
    Does he think he’s Peyton Manning?
    Even a greatly diminished Peyton Manning was a lot better than Cousins.

  2. Seriously, Captain Mediocre needs a film crew, this dude is so full of himself, I mean it’s not like he is the second coming of Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, this dude is a stat peddler that does not show up when the games are on the line…whoever signs Kirk, enjoy being mediocre.

  3. He has turned into such a chuff. He is basically RG3 now. Thank God he is leaving the Redskins. Smartest move Snyder has made since he bought the team.

  4. Cmon Minnesota – do us all a favor and sign this guy for more money than he is worth. PLEASE!!!! You already lost your stud QB from last year. Lets see how bad you can screw this up as well.

  5. 4 – 19 versus teams with a winning record and yet he is intent and hell bent on being the highest paid player in NFL history (and now he wants to document it on TV). There is a reason why the Redskins walked away from negotiating with Kirk after he refused to sign every long term agreement placed in front of him for the past 3 years – each time saying I want more. Good luck to him making such incredible money but he is way overrated.

  6. This isnt the QBs themselves deviding this. Its the media deciding who is worth spending the money to follow then offering them a pile of cash to allow it. So Brady because he is cluckbait gold, and now Cousins because he has played his business game into an insane pending payoff with several suitors that could turn out to be the one that does it. So also clickbait gold.

  7. Jesus H Christ who does this fool think he is? LeBron? Does anyone else feel like people are reaching with this guy. I wouldn’t pay any player 30+ million per. Hey Kirk just so you know not that you’ll ever read this but 30 million could provide permanent housing for 12000 homeless people

  8. I cannot blame him for getting the most money he can- I would do the same. I just cannot understand why teams are so eager for a guy that Kyle Shanahan and Jay Gruden did not want. They worked with him everyday.

    What?????????????

  10. Whom ever signs him better have a huge press conference area, not just for the assembled media, but to fit his head in the building.

  11. What does it say about the state of the NFL when a mediocre talent like Kirk Cousins can garner so much hype and attention? All one need to is look at his performances against winning teams to realize that Cousins is barely average. Show me a team that will pay Cousins over $15M a year and I will show you a team that will not contend for a SB

  12. I realize the Skins have some blame in the Kirk saga, but, please GO AWAY it’s clearly about the MONEY and always has been about the MONEY.

  13. It would be hilarious if all the footage was like when we watch a draft prospect slide in the draft. Just constant WTF face like we saw on Rodgers and Geno Smith. I really hope nobody signs this guy. He is a decent QB, not a great one. It seems like he is trying to make this a moment for his “brand”. It is a team game and the QB is the guy most responsible for rallying the troops. Hard to do that when every day for 3 months you show them that it is really about you.

    Honestly I think it is about the media. They created the hype, and I think they created the demand – although with the recent signings I think that demand might be less than “everyone” thought it was.

    The guy is the 19th ranked QB in the league, and he is having a reality show. I think that is pompous. He’ll get signed, but I hope his contract reflects his talent, not his hat size.

  15. Yeah, let’s imagine if some of the guys that everyone irrationally hates were doing this like Rodgers, Russell Wilson, or even the guy Kirk still gets compared to despite it being 3 years now since he replaced him and thus why those comparisons should be moot by now. But Kirk, he’s a good guy and all about the team. Nothing to see here.

  16. His plan is to sign for max dollars. I suspect that this film crew will depict him sitting down with his wife making a phony pros and cons list that somehow leans towards God telling him to sign with the Jets, which happens to be the most money. He’ll make it clear he wanted to win and it wasn’t about the money. This whole film will be edited to protect his image.

  17. The only reason why I can see this doofus doing a doc is to paint himself in a sympathetic light and to show only how the Redskins tried to strong arm him. Or it could be that he is a total narcissist and is just in love with himself. Bottom line, it’s a dirty business negotiating on both sides from the team and the agent. Cousins’ has shown his true colors and that he is all about the money and that’s fine. However, now that he has the money there is no excuse for him not to produce at an elite level. Maybe this doc will end up blowing up in his face like Victor Cruz’ (I am Giant in that it was released before he even made his return to the field) and serve as a cautionary tale to teams to not essentially fully guarantee a short term contract to a middle of the road talent and hamstring your team financially.

  18. So glad we’ve finally got rid of Kirk. Don’t get me wronf, he had his moments, but if we were playing a good team, an important game, or on Primetime, he folds like a busted straight draw.
