Don’t Count Dallas Out Of Kirk Cousins Sweepstakes – CBS DC
First off, how is adding Kirk Cousins to the Dallas Cowboys roster “Dak-Friendly”? It’s the exact opposite! Even those who are upset about having Dak Prescott under center are likely doing a double-take at the idea of whipping out a max deal for Cousins in Big D.
At this point, would Cousins be considered an upgrade over Prescott? Probably so. But clearly Dak has plenty of upside, he’s the far cheaper option and the Cowboys appear to be all-in on him right now. I see zero chance of Cousins coming Dallas other than to play the Cowboys as the quarterback of the opposing team .. or maybe on vacation or something.

It’s believed that the Indianapolis Colts, with Matt Eberflus as their new defensive coordinator, could be Dallas’ toughest competitor for Hitchen’s services.
