After the Washington Redskins failed to place the franchise tag on him by the March 6th deadline, freshly minted free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins posted on Twitter that he was “open to suggestions” about where to play football next season.

It sounds like Broncos linebacker Von Miller has an idea for Cousins: Come play for the Broncos.

“He not only would be a difference-maker to my team, but any team he goes to in the National Football League,” Miller told ESPN, via The Denver Post. “It’s an instant upgrade, leadership, he can throw and make all the passes on the field.

This is far from the first time Denver has been mentioned as a potential landing spot for Cousins and it was previously reported the Broncos were believed to be “all in” for the 29-year-old signal caller.

Expect this storyline to continue until free agency begins on March 14, especially with people like Mike McCartney, Cousins’ agent, continuing to add fuel to the fire by posting things like this:
