Draft Scout Kirk Cousins News
07/18/17 - QB Kirk Cousins told WFJK-FM on Tuesday that he has no qualms about playing on a year-to-year contract with the Washington Redskins, one day after the deadline passed for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term deals. Cousins, who will make $23.9 million this season, and the Redskins can't negotiate a long-term deal until the season ends by virtue of being unable to come to an agreement by Monday's deadline. After the deadline, Redskins president Bruce Allen delivered a statement that said the team offered Cousins a contract with $53 million in fully guaranteed money -- and $72 million guaranteed for injury. Cousins threw for 4,917 yards with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions in 2016 and also posted a 97.2 passer rating last season. Cousins' 12,113 yards in five seasons with Washington ranks sixth on the franchise's all-time passing yards list. He is 239 yards behind Billy Kilmer for fifth.
07/17/17 - QB Kirk Cousins of the Washington Redskins became the first signal caller to play under the franchise tag for a second consecutive season after failing to sign a long-term deal. Cousins, who will earn $23.9 million this season, and the Redskins can't negotiate a long-term deal until the season ends by virtue of being unable to come to an agreement by Monday's deadline. The 28-year-old is open to working a deal with the Redskins after this season, a source familiar with the situation told ESPN's Adam Washington offered Cousins a five-year deal worth approximately $20 million per season earlier in the offseason with "low guarantees," ESPN reported, citing a source.
07/16/17 - QB Kirk Cousins is not expected to sign a long-term deal by Monday's deadline to sign franchise players to long-term contracts. If Monday's 4 p.m. ET deadline passes with no long-term contract, Cousins is open to doing a deal with the Redskins after this season, a source familiar with the situation told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Redskins could make a last-minute push to get a deal done with Cousins, who was franchised for the second consecutive year. Cousins, who turns 29 on Aug. 19, wants to play this season under his franchise tag, worth $23.94 million.
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."
