Washington Redskins rumors: Kirk Cousins open to long-term deal
17 July 2017, 12:13 | Pamela Mathis
Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins warms up during NFL football team practice Tuesday
The quarterback wants to wait until after the 2017 season before he works out a long-term deal with the Redskins, ESPN.com reported. With both Cousins and Johnson scheduled to play under one-year deals as a result of their respective franchise tags, the attention will now begin to shift toward the Pittsburgh Steelers and veteran running back Le'Veon Bell.
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. Whatever, the case, though, Washington not getting a deal done before Monday opens the door for the Niners if they wan to walk through it. "Let's say he plays really well - he's looking at the franchise tag for $34 million". But if he stayed healthy and continued signing one-year deals, every penny would be guaranteed for Cousins. Washington will then have to watch and see if Cousins can go out and produce another strong statistical season and perhaps even compete for a playoff spot.
Former Redskins general manager Charlie Casserly believes by not signing a long term contract, Cousins remains in a position of power. Washington can not negotiate with its franchise QB until after the season.
Marathon men Kubot and Melo win Wimbledon doubles crown
Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina beat the Wimbledon curfew with a resounding victory in the women's doubles final. The match lasted 4 hours, 40 minutes, only 21 minutes shorter than the longest men's doubles final in history.
Schefter acknowledges that the team could try a last-minute Hail Mary to close the gap on a long-term deal, but it's likely that D.C. has at least nine more months of "will he or won't he" speculation on Cousins' contract.
As far as the transition tag goes, which would cost the Redskins $28,732,320, the reason why that's less than the franchise tag is that it would give another National Football League team the ability to sign Cousins to an offer sheet.
Indeed, Cousins likely will make huge money in free agency next offseason.
