AFC Notes: Broncos, Browns, Dolphins


Redskins S D.J. Swearinger said Monday on the NFL Network that he believes the Broncos are the best landing spot for QB Kirk Cousins.

“With the situation they have out there on defense, they’re missing their quarterback,” Swearinger said, via the Denver Post. “Kirk is a great quarterback. I wish we could have had different things on that, but the business is the business. I think Kirk will be getting a healthy payday and I think Denver is the team that can do that.”


Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland sets the odds for the available quarterbacks and their chances of becoming the Browns’ next starting quarterback.

  1. A.J. McCarron – 30%
  2. Case Keenum – 15%
  3. Josh McCown – 14%
  4. Tyrod Taylor – 12%
  5. Sam Bradford – 9%
  6. Teddy Bridgewater – 6%
  7. Kirk Cousins – 5%
  8. Nick Foles – 4%
  9. Chase Daniel – 3%
  10. Landry Jones – 2%


  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald writes that if the Broncos end up cutting RB C.J. Anderson this offseason, which has been mentioned as a speculative option for Denver, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Dolphins once again expressed interest in him.
  • Miami actually signed Anderson to a four-year, $18 million restricted deal a few years ago, but the Broncos decided to match the offer sheet.
  • Jackson adds that it’s possible the Broncos could instead field trade offers for Anderson, as opposed to releasing him outright.
