The Washington Post reported Smith will sign a four-year contract extension with Washington worth $94 million, including $71 million in guaranteed money. Not only will Cousins set the quarterback market, his decision will have a trickle-down effect around the league.
Cousins gets to become a free agent. The young arm out of Texas Tech certainly showed flashes of great ability, but he also will deal with growing pains as he learns to be an National Football League quarterback. Aaron Rogers is expected to land a new contract with the Green Bay Packers. With Jay Gruden as a head coach, Washington's offense will certainly be effective enough to win games, but it will be hard to see them return to the playoffs (as they did with McCloughan's help) with a healthy Carson Wentz and non-suspended Ezekiel Elliott prowling the NFC East.
"The issue that you have here, I think, is that at some point this offseason, we may see a deal get done for Aaron Rodgers", Schefter recently said on KNBR. It seems probable the Vikes would find a way to keep Keenum and/or Bridgewater given they'll have around $50 million plus to play with in free agency and the option to use the franchise tag.

Afghan Forces End Deadly Kabul Hotel Siege
About 150 desperate staff and guests managed to escape the building throughout the night, amid heavy gunfire and explosions. Spokesperson of the Kazakh Foreign Ministry Anuar Zhainakov confirmed that a Kazakh citizen was among the dead.
But Smith was only 1-4 with the Chiefs in the playoffs and couldn't guide them past the divisional round.
But now Kirk Cousins will be a free agent. Already, the speculation has begun and includes the DenverBroncos, New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals. Cousins will have multiple teams bidding for his services. Attracting Cousins would also allow new GM John Dorsey to spend his litany of draft picks, including the first and fourth overall, on blue chippers for the supporting cast - hello, Saquon Barkley? - rather than rolling the dice on Josh Allen, Josh Rosen or Sam Darnold. But three QB-needy teams are ahead of them: Cleveland (No. 1), the Giants (No. 2) and Denver (No. 5). The team is designed well enough that another quarterback can step in and be successful. For Kansas City, Andy Reid and the front office are ready to hand the keys of the offense over to Patrick Mahomes, a player who KC spent a first round pick on in last year's draft.
