Kirk Cousins offered ridiculous amount of money by Redskins

Elias Hubbard | 18 July, 2017, 00:50

Quarterback Kirk Cousins and Washington aren't expected to come to an agreement on a long-term contract ahead of Monday's deadline, according to a report from ESPN. And, based on what has happened over the past couple of years of negotiations, what reason is there to believe that Cousins and the Redskins can strike a deal next spring with him on the cusp of free agency?

Kirk Cousins enters his second consecutive season playing for the Washington Redskins under NFL's franchise tag.

The 49ers not only will have an abundance of salary-cap space next season, they'll have a lot of draft picks after adding an extra second- and third-round pick for 2018 in this year's draft. The past two years he has thrown for over 9,000 yards with an average of 7.9 yards per attempt with 54 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. 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. Allen may "remain hopeful" about a long-term deal, but that certainly doesn't appear to be the case from where we're standing.

Where Cousins plays beyond this season, whether it is with the Redskins or another franchise, will be determined next March. It's one reason multiple sources say Cousins would be open to signing a long-term deal in Washington after the season. They could use that space to craft a front-loaded offer to Cousins that Washington, which now ranks 27th in salary-cap space, could not match.

"Our goal was to sign Kirk to a long-term contract with the final objective of having him finish his career with the Redskins", said Allen, whose team doesn't have a GM now after the franchise parted ways with Scot McCloughan. Per the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, because he's playing 2017 on the franchise tag, Washington can not negotiate with Cousins until after the season. With him behind center, the Redskins won the NFC East in 2015 and posted their first back-to-back winning seasons since 1996-1997.

Talks have been positive between the two sides, however Cousins would prefer to wait to the end of the season to do a deal. But there are plenty of quarterback-needy teams and not enough good quarterbacks to go around. His cap hit would be almost $35 million were that to happen, a number that no front office in their right mind is stomaching when they could lock a player up to a deal that's much cheaper. Speculation so far has focused on the San Francisco 49ers, who have former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan as their first-year head coach.
