Redskins Playbook: Could Drew Brees' pending free agency impact Kirk Cousins?

Redskins Playbook: Could Drew Brees' pending free agency impact Kirk Cousins?

It's entirely possible that Kirk Cousins will not be the best quarterback on the market next season, as Drew Brees could be available as a free agent. Brees is in the final year of his contract, and all signs point to the Saints star hitting free agency. 

What does this mean for Cousins? And for the Redskins?

Probably not much. There has been little momentum towards a multi-year deal between Cousins and Washington with the July 17th franchise tag deadline fast approaching. If there is no contract, Cousins will play 2017 on a one-year deal. In 2018, he will either hit free agency or reach a deal with the Redskins, unless the organization uses a third tag with a collosal sticker price.

Should Cousins hit free agency, it seems very likely there would be enough money for both he and Brees among the many QB-needy teams around the NFL. 

The NFL doesn't have enough average quarterbacks, let alone really good ones. Brees has been undeniably better than Cousins, but next year, each player would present a different prospect for teams. 

Brees will be 39 and likely chasing another Super Bowl title, perhaps willing to sign a one-year deal to join a contender in need of a passer. 

Cousins will be turning 30 and looking for a multi-year deal, perhaps willing to be part of a team that's growing towards contention with a coach he trusts. This hypothetical situation actually has more similarities with the situation where Brees signed with New Orleans in 2006. 

It's also possible Brees stays in New Orleans and Cousins stays in Washington. The specter of Brees as a free agent should have no impact on current contract talks between the Redskins and Cousins. Regardless, both men will have plenty of suitors if they hit free agency, and assuredly will make plenty of money.
