It's a weird situation. The numbers are there. Everything but red zone efficiency checked out this past season yet the season before he was great at finishing drives.
However, committing $23-$25 mill a season who still has some 'intangible' questions in relation to winning a Super Bowl, I guess I can understand the Skins not running to write franchise changing checks on a whim.
If it were me, I would try to make it work long term but paying over $24 mill a season for a QB who has never won a playoff game is a tough area.
Make no mistake though, Kirk Cousins in the Gruden offense is a top 10-12 QB in the NFL.
Hope it works out but although this appears like a slam dunk from an outside perspective, it's really not.
