The NFC West is still looking for its next quarterback, and the Seattle Seahawks are the latest team to announce that they’ve signed Kirk Cousins.
The 49ers signed Sam Bradford to a two-year deal this week, and while the Eagles have also announced a new contract with Carson Wentz, they’ve already been linked to a quarterback in recent weeks.
The Seahawks, meanwhile, have signed free-agent quarterback Russell Wilson to a three-year contract, and he’s already made his mark in Seattle.
Wilson will reportedly earn $7.5 million in base salary and $7 million in incentives in the final year of his deal.
The Rams have also made their intentions clear, announcing that they’re making Cousins a free agent, and they’re not willing to part with him for anything less than a new deal.
“We believe in Kirk Cousins,” Rams president Kevin Demoff said.
“He’s a leader.
He’s a winner.
We’re going to have to make a tough decision on whether we’re going take a risk or not.
But I think we’re all in a great place here, and I think the players are in a good place.”
Meanwhile, the Eagles are reportedly in talks with former Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
The two sides have not been able to come to a contract, but a source told CBSSports.com that Newton would be open to re-signing with the Eagles if they offered him a new five-year, $70 million contract.
Newton will reportedly make $23 million per year, and his agent has said that he wants to make $30 million per season.
The Eagles’ move to sign Cousins comes as another team has made its intentions clear.
The Washington Redskins announced Monday that they’ll sign quarterback Kirk Cousins to a one-year extension.
Cousins has led the NFC East in passing yards, touchdowns, completions and touchdowns this season.
