There's no doubt in Miller's mind who he'd want to see under center for the Broncos. Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday, the Kansas City Chiefs would trade Alex Smith to the Washington Redskins. But that means Kirk Cousins is set to be the odd man out in Washington. And Von Miller knows where he should end up: on his Denver Broncos.

(Cousins) knows exactly how I feel about Kirk Cousins and what he’d mean to our team. And what he would mean to a lot of other teams. He’s the hot quarterback on the market right now.

But that’s not all.

I’d like to have Kirk. We have great quarterbacks now. Kirk could take us over the edge.

That’s nice of Miller to say, but the Broncos do not have great quarterbacks right now. Obviously he can’t say that, of course. But it’s the truth. The Broncos would finish 5-11 last season, and the biggest reason was their lack of offense. Not only would they finish 27th in points scored, but they would finish just 17th in total yards.

Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch would combine to complete just 58.7 percent of their passes with 19 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. But that’s not all. Averaging 229.3 yards per game with a combined QBR of just 35.4 doesn’t make things much better. It’s time to address the issue.

But is Kirk Cousins the answer?
