Draft Scout Kirk Cousins News
05/24/17 - QB Kirk Cousins echoed recent comments from team president Bruce Allen that contract talks remain "positive" as the July 15 deadline approaches. Cousins will play under the franchise tag for a second straight season ($23.9 million) if he and the team do not agree to a new long-term deal. That makes the next seven weeks critical to his future with the franchise. "It's a process," Cousins said. "Nothing happens right now. And as one person told me -- deadlines do deals. That's just kind of a rule in negotiating. And so why would something happen way before a deadline? It just doesn't make sense. I'm not in a hurry. They're not in a hurry. We'll just see how things go. I'm being patient."
03/14/17 - QB Kirk Cousins denies he asked Redskins owner Dan Snyder for a trade, saying he only sought to find out the team's plans for him. The Redskins placed the franchise tag on the 28-year-old quarterback for the second consecutive season, and Cousins signed the $24 million tag last Friday. But reports indicated Cousins had asked Snyder to be dealt. "I did inquire if there was any interest in trading me to get an understanding of their perspective," Cousins told ESPN. "The answer I got back was Mr. Snyder communicated his belief in me and desire for me to remain a Redskin."
03/10/17 - QB Kirk Cousins asked Redskins owner Daniel Snyder for a trade without a long-term contract in place, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported on Thursday, citing league and team sources.
Snyder told Cousins that he should not anticipate a trade, according to the report. Cousins is prevented from negotiating with teams under the exclusive franchise tag that was placed on him Feb. 28. It was the second straight year that the franchise tag was used on Cousins, who received the non-exclusive franchise tag in 2015.
03/10/17 - QB Kirk Cousins officially signed his one-year franchise tender with the Redskins on Friday for the guaranteed salary of almost $24 million this season.

The Redskins can negotiate with Cousins on a long-term deal until July 15. Should the sides remain at an impasse, Cousins will make $23.94 million for the 2017 season.
02/28/17 - QB Kirk Cousins had the exclusive franchise tag placed on him Tuesday, the Washington Redskins announced. Under NFL rules, the Redskins can negotiate with Cousins on a long-term contract extension until July 15. If a deal is not reached, Cousins will make $23.94 million for the 2017 season. Because Washington applied the exclusive tag to Cousins, he is not allowed to negotiate with other teams. Before being tagged, Cousins had reportedly expressed interested in a reunion with former Redskins offensive coordinator and new 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco. Cousins is entering his sixth NFL season after throwing for 12,113 yards, 72 touchdowns and 42 interceptions in five previous seasons with Washington.
