Kirk Cousins posts personal farewell to Washington

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins scrambles during an NFL football game against the Denver Bronco Kirk Cousins posts personal farewell to Washington

Kirk Cousins will spend the next few days taking calls from prospective new teams.

This is peak offseason tea leaves-reading: On Monday, Kirk Cousins penned a blog post bidding farewell to Washington before free agency gets underway. The Jets and Vikings seem like the most obvious and logical landing spots for Cousins.

However, the tags disappeared quickly, and the letter doesn't have any other team aside from the Redskins tagged. Time proved otherwise and taught me that there are no guarantees in this business - if you work hard and learn from your mistakes, good things can happen.

That suggests it may be Thursday, or later, before a decision is reached on where Cousins will play after spending the first six years of his career in Washington - the first four under a rookie deal that paid him roughly $600,000 per year and the last two under back-to-back National Football League franchise tags worth roughly $44 million.

"Knowing I will not be putting on a Redskins jersey next season, it's hard to look back at all that's taken place and not become emotional", Cousins writes. Having said this, I would not trade the past decade for anything.

Cousins, who has played two seasons for the Redskins on a franchise tag, topped the 4,000-yard mark for the third straight year in 2017.

The Vikings finished with a 13-3 record last season and made it to the NFC Championship game before losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. When (my son) Cooper someday asks: "'Hey Dad, what was it like playing for the Redskins?' I'll proudly tell him it was a dream come true".
