Check out (as one eagle-eyed Twitter user saw) which two teams, other than Washington, that Cousins tagged.
Kirk Cousins, the most sought-after quarterback on the NFL's free-agent market, will make a decision on his playing future Wednesday or Thursday, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
The 26-year-old Johnson tweeted the following to Cousins on Friday: "c'mon ... stop messing with every1 & tell them you're coming to the desert".
The #Vikings have been considered to be in the driver's seat for Kirk Cousins and that hasn't changed (yet). "Gratitude" and "happy" both make sense but are wholly unnecessary if you're trying to really manage tags efficiently. Sam Bradford and Case Keenum might be options for Buffalo. Given the uncertainty of Vance Joseph's job status near the end of last season, the Broncos' head coach needs Cousins or Keenum. Could they convince Jerick McKinnon to return? It'll be interesting to see which team ends up on top in the "Kirk Cousins Sweepstakes" as the National Football League rumors keep pouring in this week.
Chances of Keenum staying in Minnesota keeps on lowering, even though he threw for a whopping 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns last season. The 2012 fourth round pick finished previous year 347-540 for 4,093 yards and 27 touchdowns to 13 interceptions. He started every game the past three seasons, leading Washington to the playoffs in 2015 - his only postseason appearance.
The price to get McCarron would have to be substantially lower than Keenum or Cousins to justify prioritizing him, but it is a name to watch for.
Jones also noted the team could re-sign Josh McCown, who started 13 games for the Jets last season. The Big Four would have a chance to eventually develop into a franchise-type quarterback but it's hard for any team to reach the playoffs with a rookie quarterback.
But this would not be a five-year, fully-guaranteed contract.
It looks like it might be No. 2, because Cousins - or, more likely, whoever runs Cousins' website - already went into the CMS and deleted those two tags.
