Washington will consider placing franchise tag on Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins breaks his silence after Redskins trade for Alex Smith

There is one reason Cousins might not accept the tag and that is if there's no sign he could get a long-term deal from the team where he's potentially traded. So they have a good team, they have a good quarterback, a guy that can move the chains keep everything going. I understood that. He said, 'I wish you all the best. I was a little bit in shock.

Do you think the Redskins have upgraded at quarterback?

Fans wanting to say thank you to Smith for his five-year tenure with the Chiefs have given $60,000 from 2,900 donations, according to Pam Smith, Alex's mother.

That's evidenced by the guaranteed money Smith took from Washington, which Pluto wrote was closer to $50 million, than the $70 million originally reported (Smith would take the later sum if he suffered a serious injury). "At the time if the Redskins had come to me with an extension, I probably would have signed it because I didn't know what was going to take place".

That's when things would get messy. She wrote: "Words can't express the overwhelming love and support we have felt from ‪#ChiefsKingdom".

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. Additionally, they have a QB ready to go in Mahomes. "I would hope any team is interested". Jay Gruden does a great job play-calling. We'll see if that plays out, and if it does, it's a unique opportunity that I look forward to.

So, the Chiefs have their guy, and the Redskins have their guy.

The player's union, according to former National Football League executive Andrew Brandt, could file a grievance against the Redskins if Cousins is tagged.

Well, Washington is exhausted of negotiating, so now he'll have to look for that payday somewhere else.

"At the end of the day, I want to win", Cousins said Friday.

Death to the franchise tag!

Yes, tagging Cousins would prevent him from becoming an unrestricted free agent. If Cousins is not tagged, he would be free to negotiate with other teams beginning March 12. I also know the Jets would probably be thrilled to have a passer with a 2-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Washington is moving on from Cousins because it just traded with the Chiefs for Alex Smith. "There's a couple guys out there". Your players have spoken, Elway, the ball is in your court now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed as much on Sunday morning, reporting that the Redskins will consider franchising Cousins for a third time in an effort to then trade him. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer agrees that Minnesota would be a "prime location" for the impending free agent. Other teams that when he comes in, they're going to make an immediate impact. Should the Redskins simply let Cousins walk, he would immediately become the most valuable free agent on the market, with quarterback-hungry teams such as the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals - among a few others - competing for his services.

I think Elway would want him, but he'd have to move around a lot of money to get Cousins.

Washington wouldn't be able to trade him until he signed the franchise tag, and with this power, Cousins could delay signing for however long he wanted which would force the team to count his $34.5 million against their salary cap. The Redskins would also have more control over where Cousins ends up.
