Washington will consider placing franchise tag on Kirk Cousins

Washington will consider placing franchise tag on Kirk Cousins”

In the aftermath of the Redskins' move to acquire Alex Smith from the Chiefs, the team reportedly is considering placing its franchise tag on Kirk Cousins. But at the same time, a whole new world is about to open up to him.

Now that the 2017-18 National Football League season has come to an end after arguably one of the greatest, most thrilling offensive explosions we've ever seen in Super Bowl history between the Eagles and Patriots, it's never too early to start thinking about hot offseason topics like the draft and free agent signings. As a result, he's preparing for the hoard of suitors likely to express interest in signing him. "I'm in the information-gathering stage at this point".

Kirk Cousins is still the lead horse in the race because he could potentially ruin any trade that is out there, that he doesn't approve of, which puts the Skins in a risky situation.

Paul Allen of KFAN Minneapolis reports the Minnesota Vikings are "number one with a bullet" on Cousins' wish list.

Weis noted that his former Chiefs boss, Browns offensive coordinator Todd Haley, is "a very good playcaller" which should be attractive to offensive players.

"It was a surprise", Cousins said this week of Tuesday's trade.

The downside for Cousins is that he could end up stuck in limbo. "I was talking with Coach (Charlie) Weis earlier and he made it clear, 'Hey, go where you can win.' That's exactly what the plan is".

Quarterback-needy teams might balk at that. They would then hope to trade him to a team where, presumably, Cousins would then negotiate a long-term contract. A third straight year under the franchise tag in 2018 would cost Washington $34.5 million, per ESPN's John Keim. Franchising Coucins would cost Washington $34.5 million.

By an Administration that callously appraises our worthiness and decides who makes the cut and who can be bargained away. Someone said that's "not nice" and Pelosi looked around, sticking out her arms, as if she was trying to quiet them.

Cousins could also agree to the franchise tag, but then make it very hard for another team to trade for him - either by making exorbitant extensions demands or flat-out saying he won't play there beyond 2018.

Why the Redskins would use the franchise tag on Cousins.

. Thus, they could block him from staying in the NFC.

Franchise-tagging him would force Cousins away from picking his new team in unrestricted free agency. Washington may get more because of the heavy market for his services.

"The team's gotta do what's best for them", Cousins told TMZ Sports on Thursday at the EA Sports Madden Bowl.
