Washington Redskins fans may need to accept that Kirk Cousins will no longer be their quarterback.

The Denver Broncos -- a team many consider the favorite to land Cousins -- are going to make a “huge run” at Cousins, and it is “more likely than not” that he plays for them next year, according to Erik Galko of Optimum Scouting.

The Arizona Cardinals are also in the mix, Galko tweeted this week.

Earlier in January, Galko reported that the Broncos "made it clear to those close to Cousins that they’re ready to make a big offer."

Tony Pauline, a draft analyst, tweeted Cousins is seeking “in excess” of $25 million a year, or a deal that “rivals or exceeds” Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford’s record setting five-year, $135 million contract he signed last summer.

It should be noted that Cousins’ agent also represents Trevor Siemian, the Broncos’ who just had surgery again on his left shoulder.

The start of free agency is getting closer, so Redskins fans should be waiting on pins and needles between now and March 14.
