Set to break the bank in free agency -- after making a king's ransom in Washington -- Cousins looms as the biggest open-market prize since Broncos football czar John Elway lured Peyton Manning to Denver in 2012.
"It would be huge having a guy like Kirk. ... It would be huge to come to us, a veteran team," Anderson told NFL Network on Wednesday. "We know some pieces are going to change, but if we can keep some of the pieces on our offensive end -- myself, [wideout] Emmanuel [Sanders], DT [wideout Demaryius Thomas] -- our offense can be what we want it to be."
Asked if a trustworthy quarterback was the missing piece, Anderson minced no words.
"Oh yeah, most definitely," he said. "If [Elway] can make it happen ... We need to find a way to make that happen."
None of these humans work in Denver's front office, though, leaving us with just one relevant curiosity: Will Elway make it happen?
