Kirk Cousins Rumors: QB Not Expected to Sign New Contract by Monday

  • Bruce Allen Redskins owner interview

This makes him the first quarterback in National Football League history to play under the franchise tag for two consecutive seasons, and a third consecutive season would cost Washington more than $30 million, via Schefter.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, it appears now that Cousins will play out the year on the tag, and that both sides feel comfortable with that.

Florio added that such internal disagreement has persisted since 2015, when there was debate within the organization over whether Cousins or Robert Griffin III should be the team's franchise quarterback. The 49ers could have a quarterback vacancy next season.

They have until next Monday to do a long-term deal, though there's no indication that's even being worked on. The Redskins are reportedly embroiled in an internal battle about just how much Cousins is worth. It could roll over ita unspent room into next season, giving it more than enough ammunition to lure Cousins in free agency.

Former Redskins general manager Charlie Casserly believes by not signing a long term contract, Cousins remains in a position of power. That's a nice pay raise for the veteran quarterback, but it's not exactly what he wanted when it came to contract negotiations with the franchise. Again, this should come with little shock to most fans. Washington can still use the franchise tag on him again if they choose to do so, but it would cost the Redskins over $34 million dollars.

Washington also could transition him for $28,732,320 million, but another team would have the ability to sign him to an offer sheet that Washington would then have seven days to match.

Of course, nearly nobody in the NFL has more cap room projected for the 2018 offseason than the 49ers, and again, everybody in the league knows this.

And 2018 begins with the QB the 49ers wanted all along.

Granted, there are those who would welcome Cousins into the Niners ranks in 2018.
