The Arizona Cardinals are in the race for the top free agent quarterback on the market in Kirk Cousins.
What they do offer Cousins that both Minnesota, New York and even the Denver Broncos cannot offer is something different.
The Arizona Cardinals can offer Kirk Cousins a blank slate.
The Cardinals won’t have much in the way of opportunity to improve in 2018, but they will in 2019 and beyond.
They offer Cousins an opportunity to leave the high pressure city of Washington DC and avoid the New York media.
They don’t have the expectations of taking the next step in year one the Vikings will have.
They also offer two of the very best recruiters possible:

This is a realistic look at the Cousins situation.
The Cardinals are likely the fourth best option out of four choices, but they offer something no one else can… a chance to grow and develop in the situation without the weight of the world.
It may not be much, but it is something.
