"There is no way I would be where I am today, without the leadership of the Redskins organization", Cousins wrote.

"Thanks for having me, Washington, and thanks for making me into the player I am today!"
Specifically, per Jurecki, the Cardinals plan to offer Cousins a five-year deal worth $145 million, which would mean Cousins makes $29 million per year, making him the highest-paid player in National Football League history, surpassing Jimmy Garoppolo's average annual value.

Interestingly enough, Cousins' letter also included the words "Jets" and "Vikings" in the tags included on the post.
