As of 11:00AM central daylight savings time, Kirk Cousins has started to negotiate with teams around the NFL in preparations to join a new squad for 2018.
With that, Cousins took to his blog to say an emotional goodbye to Redskins fans and Washington D.C.
"As I’m about to make one of the bigger decisions of my life, I’ll be saying goodbye to my familiar life as a Redskin," Cousins wrote on his blog. "After calling Washington home for the past six years, the team has decided to move on to another option and, in turn, my family and I will be moving on as well."
Cousins would go on to thank the organization, the front office and the fans for their support of him both on and off the field noting that not only did they cheer him on Sundays but they helped raise tens of thousands of dollars for the International Justice Mission to help protect victims of violence all over the world.
From here, Cousins and his agent hit the phones for the next two days to test the market and see who's offering what for his services. Then, on Wednesday Cousins will hit the road to visit one to four suitors and meet the staffs for teams that are expected to include the Minnesota Vikings.
Maybe Kirk's next blog will be a bio-piece introducing himself to the Minnesota Fan base!
