As such, he is likely the best option for a franchise quarterback that the team has had in a quarter century. In both of the last two seasons, he has been “franchise tagged,” which is a one-year-only deal that is management-speak for: we like you, we're just not sure we love you.

When he’s home, Cousins doesn’t like wasting time traveling to the gym and—like a sensible Millennial with roommate-parents—is happy to work out in the driveway.

There, his trainer, Joe, will put him through an exercise circuit.

That’s in part because it’s insanely expensive (nearly $44 million over two years for Cousins).

But it’s also because most teams aren’t as commitment-phobic as Washington, which remains unsure—even after a "tagged" season in which his numbers put him among the top ten QBs in the league—if he is the guy to build a franchise around.

So this is where you’ll find the Washington Redskins quarterback on a beautiful, bright July morning.

He made nearly million throwing footballs last year.

It makes me realize that we—the football fans, the Twitter trolls, the confused sports pundits—have been asking the wrong question.

We’ve been too busy questioning his value—wondering how such an impossibly earnest guy became a face-of-a-franchise NFL quarterback paid nearly million—to realize it’s the other way around.

This is the cross Cousins has always had to bear: proving that he’s better than you think. He turned down the only two football scholarships he was offered his junior year, from mid-majors Toledo and Western Michigan, because, in his words, “I couldn’t see myself there.” Translated from Midwesterner, that means: Then, in Cousins’s words, “a miracle”: Michigan State lost its top quarterback recruit during Cousins’s senior year and offered him a last-minute scholarship.
