Despite defections, Kirk Cousins has plenty of weapons to succeed

A total of 25 players reached 1,000 receiving yards last season. Included in that impressive group were four sets of teammates from the Saints, Broncos, Raiders and Redskins. Each of the Broncos and Raiders are back with their teams, and one of the Saints is off to New England. In Washington, well, quarterback Kirk Cousins is going to be relying on some new weapons. To me this isn’t that big of a deal, but after reading a recent NFL Insiders article in which Washington’s offense was mentioned by four of six writers as getting measurably worse this offseason, perhaps I am missing something.
