The 2014 fourth overall pick of the Buffalo Bills spent last season with the Los Angeles Rams, where he caught 39 passes for 593 yards and eight touchdowns, a far cry from the 60 passes Watkins hauled in for 1,047 yards and nine TDs in 2015. Still, others have only a year or two of productivity left - but possess the kind of veteran leadership that could push a team over the top.
First, it was news of Case Keenum intending to sign with the Denver Broncos. However, given the nature of quarterback play in the National Football League, the contract is more a matter of timing than anything else. Keenum reportedly agreed to terms with the Broncos on Tuesday, while Bradford and Bridgewater remain available.
The Jets and Vikings look like the primary suitors and Cousins' decision probably comes down to those two teams, but it's worth noting that, according to Mike Jurecki of 98.7 FM Arizona's Sports Station, Arizona is prepping a monster offer for Cousins. Signing Bridgewater will not stop the Jets from drafting a quarterback at No. 6, and perhaps that's the point in him being their "first choice" now.
Coming off a 13-3 season, if Keenum's play had regressed or if Bridgewater struggled in 2018, general manager Rick Spielman could have shrugged his shoulders and claimed sometimes things go your way and sometimes they don't. But is he the franchise quarterback these teams so desperately need? Unlike the 38-year-old McCown, though, it is possible Keenum is looking for more than a one-year deal. Cousins could command a deal in the neighborhood of $90 million over three years. Over each his three full seasons as a starter, he has thrown for more than 4,000 yards with a completion percentage above 64 percent and at least 25 touchdowns. He recently announced he'll be the subject of a documentary that walks fans through free agency. Denver's front office certainly has a good relationship with Cousins' agency, but if Cousins already has his mind made up, there's no reason to waste anyone's time.

The lasting impact of Cousins' situation won't be known for a while.
The Broncos know two of those more than the others - Allen and Mayfield - thanks to a week of coaching them at the Senior Bowl in Alabama in January.
"I saw him at the Senior Bowl, but I didn't get a chance to talk to him", Elway said of Mayfield. It's not just the quarterback position we have to get better at.
