Free agent Kirk Cousins recently asked Twitter what suggestions they had for him as he’s prepared to hit the open market. Here’s the greatest sales pitch one can give him to sign with the New York Jets.
Rumors have it that free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins has narrowed down his choices to just two teams. It’s come down to the Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets as Cousins will be patient throughout the process.
Ideally, Cousins will more than likely visit both teams to see what their main pitch is for him to consider signing with them. Money isn’t an issue for either team since both have a lot of salary cap space to work with and know exactly what he brings to the table.
But what would be the perfect sales pitch for the Jets to give Cousins to have him realistically sign with the team? What would general manager Mike Maccagnan say to Cousins for him to not only come to terms but get excited for what the future brings Gang Green?
Here’s what Cousins asked the football world on Twitter in regards to what he should do once free agency hits:

If I’m Maccagnan, here’s the greatest sales pitch I’d give in order to get Cousins ready to sign a monster new contract with the Jets:
New York. The city that never sleeps. The place where dreams are made of and athletes can turn into legends. It’s no secret that the New York Jets haven’t been all that lucky when it comes to quarterbacks. Let’s face it, we need someone who can come in and take care of business immediately because we simply haven’t had luck finding “the guy” that delivers consistent winning results.
This is the first time in a very long time where we are ready to break the bank for a quarterback that we know could become legendary with our franchise. We have a lot more financial resources to not only make you one happy individual but to build the right supporting cast around you.
This will be your team. You’ll have the freedom to not only give your take on issues concerning our offense but have the opportunity to be the new face of the franchise. A franchise that is being rebuilt through youth, hard work, and execution.
Kirk, the city of New York deserves to have another championship brought to one of the most loyal fan bases in the world. New Yorkers live, breathe, and eat sports and they deserve a quarterback that wears our uniform to bring home a Vince Lombardi trophy since they’ve seen it twice by another quarterback wearing blue.

Could this pitch be what gets Cousins to sign on the dotted line? Who knows but at the end of the day, New York is where dreams happen. If Cousins wants to be a part of something special on a young and upcoming team, the Jets is where it’s at in the grand scheme of things.
