BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) Now that the Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to trade Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins, Denver star linebacker Von Miller is lobbying for the Broncos to reel in quarterback Kirk Cousins.
In an appearance on "The Dan Patrick Show" on Wednesday, Miller said he'd love for Cousins to rescue the Broncos, who have missed the playoffs the last two years despite a dominant defense. The 29-year-old Cousins is likely headed for free agency after spending his first six seasons with Washington.
"I've talked to him before. He knows exactly how I feel ... and what he would mean to our team," Miller said, adding "We need Kirk. I would love to have Kirk. We have great quarterbacks now. Kirk could take us over the edge."
