If quarterback Kirk Cousins doesn’t end up with the Jets, it will have nothing to do with money. It will be because Cousins doesn’t believe the Jets are close to winning. Denver and Minnesota will both make a run at Cousins. The Jets need to convince Cousins they have enough money to build around him, and then it’s a done deal. No other team can pay him 27.5 M per year.

It will come down to what Kirk Cousins wants. Money is always good, but he's been paid well the last few years after three straight Franchise Tags. Can the Jets show him that they can compete in a division with Tom Brady? If not, teams like Denver, Minnesota, and as we heard earlier this week from ESPN's Michael Dirocco; the Jacksonville Jaguars. We will soon find out.
