Kirk Cousins breaks his silence after Redskins trade for Alex Smith

Three days after the Redskins’ surprising trade for Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith signaled the unofficial end of Kirk Cousins’s tenure with the team, Cousins addressed his future with reporters on Friday in Minneapolis. In the first of several scheduled interviews on Radio Row ahead of Super Bowl LII, Cousins said finding his next team “should be an interesting process.”
“It was a surprise,” Cousins told USA Today Sports’ Mike Jones of Tuesday’s trade. “I was actually working out at my hotel room here in Minneapolis and when I finished the workout went over and saw the news. Every player looks forward to free agency. It looks like I’m going to be a free agent on March 14. I guess there are still some dates to check off, but it should be an exciting process.”
Before Tuesday’s news, Cousins said he felt “there was a good chance” he would be back in Washington.
“I was keeping an open mind,” Cousins said. ” . . . I think Washington can win. I think they’re in a good place. I think they’re in a position to be successful.”
That's the point, look at his stats, up and down as far as yardage goes. The team built around him is built for success, Kirk is better than Case, look what he did with us, after losing his top two 1000 yard receivers and basically Reed for most of the season, along with CT. Look at the Vikings weapons and defense.
They also got lucky on that TD in the divisional round in the last seconds that got them to the NFCC anyhow. Kirk gives them an even better chance to take it to the next level, imo and in the Vikings opinion (obviously).
At least it wasn't about the money........you know, cause I'm sure the Jets probably are offering 90 million fully guaranteed over 3 years, so he would be giving up 6 million dollars
