NFL Notes: Kirk Cousins, Draft, Dolphins, Texans

Kirk Cousins

  • According to Jason Reid of ESPN, Redskins’ officials who know QB Kirk Cousins have said for the past few years he doesn’t want to be in Washington. Reid added that Cousins actually prefers to be franchised.


Matt Miller of B/R spoke to an NFL scout who believes all of the quarterbacks in this year’s draft class are being overrated.

“All the quarterbacks. They’re terrible,” the scout said. “I wouldn’t want to put my job on the line for any quarterback in this class. And to think about taking one in the first round? No way. I’m sure someone will do it, but it’s mind-blowing.

The scout did, however, say that this year’s running back class could be historic not only for the top-end talent, but the fact that his team already has around 30 draftable running backs on their draft board.

This is a historic running back class. Not just with the first-rounders, but with the overall depth,” the scout said. “I think we’ll have around 30 draftable running backs in this class—which probably translates to like Round 5 or higher on your board. That’s an unreal number. And the variety is nice, too. Power runners. Speed backs. It’s a great class. Best I’ve seen.”


Yesterday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reported there’s talk that the Dolphins could again look to the trade market to land a big-name cornerback like they did last year in a deal with the Eagles that sent Byron Maxwell to Miami (NFLTR).

In an article that posted later in the day, Beasley mentioned that it’s unclear who the Dolphins are targeting in a potential trade, but there are obvious connections to Broncos CB Aqib Talib and Seahawks CB Richard Sherman.

This is clearly something we’ll be monitoring the coming weeks.


Texans free agent S Quintin Demps tells Sirius XM NFL Radio that he wants to be back in Houston next year, it won’t be at a hometown discount.

“Never know what will happen, but I want to be a Texan for sure…no hometown discounts though,” Demps said.
