A little over a week ago, I gave you ten reasons that Kirk Cousins is worth the money. The numbers we looked at made it clear that Cousins is the best option for the Washington Redskins at quarterback. However, what is not entirely clear is just how much it will take to keep Cousins in a Redskins uniform for the foreseeable future, and how the contract needs to be structured. That's the question that is currently staring the Redskins brass dead in the face. The short answer is that they likely need to make Kirk Cousins the highest paid player in the NFL. Don't believe me? That's fine. I'll admit that I'm much more comfortable with numbers related to on-field performance than I am with contract
Matt Elam, a highly disappointing former first-round pick for the Baltimore Ravens, wasn’t likely to garner much attention on the free-agent market next month – safeties credited with one tackle on defense in nine games rarely do. According to Miami-Dade police records, Elam was booked into a city correctional facility at 3:45 a.m. He is facing multiple charges: possession of more than 20 grams of cannabis (a felony), possession of cannabis with intent to sell or deliver, possession of a controlled substance, and reckless driving. Police said they pulled Elam over for reckless driving and while searching his car discovered 126 grams of marijuana as well as 3 grams of oxycodone.
