Miller backed Kirk Cousins as potentially a significant addition to the Broncos should the quarterback hit the open market on the heels of the Washington Redskins agreeing to trade for Alex Smith on Tuesday.
In fact, Miller said on the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday that Cousins is aware of just how much he values him. The Super Bowl 50 MVP said that "A lot of teams would kill to have a quarterback like that" after Cousins led the Redskins to a 27-11 win over the Broncos on Dec. 24.
"He knows exactly how I feel about Kirk Cousins and what he'd mean to our team," Miller said on Wednesday. "And what he would mean to a lot of other teams. He's the hot quarterback on the market right now. ... Yeah, we need Kirk. We need Kirk. I'd like to have Kirk. We have great quarterbacks now. Kirk could take us over the edge."
Cousins is expected to fetch a high price on the free agent market this year. He is coming off a season in which he completed 64.3 percent of his passes for more than 4,000 yards with 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions for a 93.9 passer rating.
The Broncos have had trouble getting consistent production out of the quarterback position since Peyton Manning retired after winning the Super Bowl two years ago.
The Broncos could also look toward the quarterback position with the fifth overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
