03/01/16 - QB Kirk Cousins received the franchise tag from the Redskins for 2016 after a long-term contract couldn't be reached before Tuesday's (March 1) deadline. The tag guarantees Cousins a $19.953 million salary this season.
The Redskins and Cousins can still negotiate a long-term contract and have until July 15 to reach an agreement.
The decision to place the tag on Cousins wasn't a surprise as team president Bruce Allen indicated the team would do so if a long-term deal couldn't be reached.
Cousins is free to sign with another team, but any franchise that signs him would owe the Redskins two first-round picks. Washington also would have the option to match the contract offer and retain Cousins.
Regardless of how the situation shakes out, Cousins receives a huge pay raise.
He made just $660,000 last season when he passed for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns during the best campaign of his four-year career.
01/10/16 - QB Kirk Cousins' first full season as a starter ended in with a loss, but he set several team passing records while guiding the Redskins to a division title. Now he is a free agent.
Cousins said, "(I feel) good about where this organization is headed and the nucleus of guys that we have." When asked specifically about free agency, he said: "I think I want to be where I am wanted, and you want to be with people who believe in you, and we are going to find out -- because we haven't discussed it much yet -- how much I am wanted here and where that'll go."
01/07/16 - QB Kirk Cousins has 23 touchdown passes and just three interceptions in his last 10 games.
