Washington unable to work out deal with Cousins — Sports Digest

  • LANDOVER MD- NOVEMBER 20 Quarterback Kirk Cousins #8 of the Washington Redskins walks off of the field after the Washington Redskins defeated the Green Bay Packers 42-24 at FedExField

Adam Schefter called the future of Cousins and the Redskins an "unprecedented situation", given that Cousins is the first quarterback to ever play under the franchise tag for two straight seasons. Cousins replied that he would be glad to play for Washington on one-year deals for the next decade and he wouldn't be upset if the team tagged him again next season.

Allen says that the team previously made a contract offer that featured $53 million guaranteed to the quarterback.

Last year, Cousins' first with the franchise tag, the deadline came and went without much in the way of serious negotiating. It mirrors how the team handled the situation past year, basically wanting Cousins to prove himself on the franchise tag before giving him a huge extension.

Some reports Monday indicated Cousins is no longer trying out for Washington, but instead the Redskins are trying out for Cousins.

They did give coach Jay Gruden a two-year extension in March. It might be the smartest play at this point, but the team would be absolute fools to let another draft go by again without picking some insurance. Cousins will early $23.943 million guaranteed this season after pocketing $19.953 on the franchise tag last season. Cousins can't sign a long-term deal with anyone now, but the 49ers would at least know his desire to do it with them after the season.

Shanahan played a major role in Cousins getting selected in the fourth round of the 2012 draft after the team traded up to take Robert Griffin III with the second-overall pick. During the period that Cousins is under the franchise tag, the Redskins have exclusive negotiation rights.

And finally, this offseason, Cousins has started to feel like he's That Guy.

According to the Monday Morning Quarterback, there has been some doubt in the minds of a few Redskins front office members.

The Redskins could make a last-minute push to get a deal done with Cousins, who was franchised for the second consecutive year. And Cousins is definitely above average: He threw for 4,917 yards last year - the 15th most in National Football League history.

These numbers show that the Redskins and Cousins are still further apart in negotiations than many would like.

Cousins will make just under $24 million in 2017, which ranks third in the league behind Flacco and Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer.

Regardless of how Redskins fans end up viewing the standoff, Cousins is now in a position where he's made a big bet on himself.

Cousins will also have to perform this season with an entirely new set of wide receivers and a new offensive coordinator, Matt Cavanaugh, who replaces quarterback guru Sean McVay. "I would love to be with (Washington) long-term", Cousins said.

"It was closer than people would think", Cousins said. Schaffer began working at IMG at age 17 and learned under prominent agent Tom Condon, helping negotiate deals for Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, LaDainian Tomlinson and Tony Gonzalez, and in 14 years with the Redskins, has climbed the ladder after starting as their salary-cap manager.

The first thing you notice, once you look a little more closely into the Skins' attempt to gain the high ground on Kirk Cousins, is that in the video meant to smear the quarterback as unreasonable, team president Bruce Allen repeatedly calls him "Kurt".

Bell ran for 1,268 yards and seven touchdowns and caught another 75 passes in 12 games for Pittsburgh in 2016.

How'd we get here?
