Joe Thiesmann On Kirk Cousin’s Contract: ‘It Would’ve Been A Big Nut To Swallow’
Yesterday, former Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins signed a three year, $84 million contract with the Minnesota Vikings. That's a hell of a pay day!
Joe Theismann went on a D.C. sports talk radio show to discuss the move, but did so in a bit of an odd manner due to the mixing of the phrases "tough nut to crack" and "hard pill to swallow." When talking about the Redskins resigning Cousins, Theismann referred to it by saying that it would have been a "big nut to swallow." We're not sure if he knows what that really means, but it sure seems like everyone else does!
