Not expected to sign with Redskins before deadline

Not expected to sign with Redskins before deadline

He's probably not gonna want to take much less than that, at least on a one-year deal.

A Monday deadline could put some pressure on the Washington Redskins to sign quarterback Kirk Cousins to a new contract, but reports of internal disagreement within the organization persist.

This means Cousins will earn $23.9 million in 2017 as he plays the season on a year contract under the franchise tag - becoming the first quarterback in National Football League history to play two straight seasons under the franchise tag.

The Monday, July 17, 4 p.m. deadline is rapidly approaching and, if no deal is done, Cousins will enter the season on his second consecutive franchise tag.

But two Republican senators have already declared their opposition to revised legislation that was unveiled on Thursday. Two Republicans, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of ME , have already said they'll vote against the measure.


Unfortunately for the front office, Griffin never matriculated into the "savior" of the franchise they had marketed him to be despite a spectacular rookie season during which he led the Redskins to a division title and a playoff appearance.

Schefter reported that Cousins is open to negotiating a long-term pact with Washington again next offseason, but the two sides have now twice been unable to come to an equitable agreement after protracted negotiations.

It seems unquestionable at this point that Cousins has won this standoff against Washington.

It also landed him on the NFC Pro Bowl team. The former Michigan State star turns 29 years old in August and is coming off a season that saw him rank third in passing yardage and yard per attempt.

But, if we're going to be playing the devil's advocate, here are some of the issues the Cubs have had so far. Eloy Jimenez is MLB Pipeline's number 8th ranked prospect on their Top 100 list while Dylan Cease is 63rd.


One of the teams who will target Kirk Cousins in the offseason is the San Francisco 49ers. If that happened, then the Redskins would have seven days to match.

Cousins won over coach Jay Gruden during the preseason of 2015 and the rest is history.

The 49ers' quarterback of the future literally won't be a 49er until the future, though the clock on that is about to really start ticking.
