Redskins considering franchise tagging Kirk Cousins before trading him

Redskins considering franchise tagging Kirk Cousins before trading him”

Those concerns could scare Washington away from franchise-tagging Cousins. If they end up doing so, the first day to franchise players is February 20th. "But I do expect to be a free agent, but we'll see".

On Tuesday, Smith was traded - in principle - to Washington in exchange for CB Kendall Fuller and a third-round pick in this year's draft.

The Redskins tagging Cousins again, however, carries with it major risk. However, Cousins has indicated that money won't be the factor that helps him to make up his mind. How might that work?

Yes, tagging Cousins would prevent him from becoming an unrestricted free agent.

More importantly, Cousins could simply refuse to sign the franchise tag. Franchising Coucins would cost Washington $34.5 million.

Fox lands NFL's 'Thursday Night Football'
The NFL is still taking bids for the digital rights, with Amazon and Twitter expected to be among the bidders. SBD reported Fox bid more than the $45 million per game CBS and NBC paid the league to air 10 games in 2017.

Cousins, in turn, could delay signing the franchise tag, with the Redskins remaining on the hook for approximately $34.5 million against their salary cap. Washington now has $49.666 million in cap space, according to's estimate. On the one hand, Cousins could have some say in where he would be traded as he could simply refuse to sign a long-term contract with a team he is not interested in playing for.

Cousins, likely to be on his way out of Washington this offseason after the Redskins acquired Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs, starred in a local Washington for Cyprus Air Heating, Cooling and Fireplaces with a President Donald Trump impersonator. Yes, but in that case, Washington would not get the 2019 third-round compensatory pick that it would receive if Cousins leaves in free agency in the traditional way. A talented roster with three possibly zero quarterbacks entering 2018 seems like a great fit for Cousins. He then signs the transition tag tender and the two teams complete the trade.

Hopefully, Graziano's bold prediction comes to fruition since it would make a plethora of Jets fans happy knowing they are getting a Pro Bowl quarterback ready to make some serious noise in the city that never sleeps.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, which would allow him to choose his next National Football League team (just like Peyton Manning did in 2012). "I would enjoy gathering the information and talking with him and learning more about Denver along with the other teams that are out there". Could the Jets be in the mix? For the other 30 teams in the National Football League, the offseason is here and the rumor mill is churning. 33, 35, and 63 in Round 2.
