The Jets will reportedly be interested in quarterback Kirk Cousins when free agency begins in March, according to Newsday's Calvin Watkins.
Cousins, 29, is expected to be a hot commodity in the offseason assuming the Washington Redskins don't franchise tag him for a third straight year.
He has been Washington's full-time starting quarterback over the past three years and is 24-23-1 in those games. In 2017, he threw for 4,093 yards, 27 touchdowns and 13 touchdowns as Washington went 7-9 and missed the playoffs.
Cousins earned $23.94 million last season, and a franchise tag would raise his salary to $34.47 million. He is reportedly seeking a long-term deal in free agency that would be worth nearly $25 million annually.
The Jets are expected to have nearly $100 million in salary cap space this offseason, but could also use their No. 6 pick in the draft to pursue a quarterback.
