Redskins, Kirk Cousins unable to reach contract extension

Niners Will Get a Hint of Their Future Week

Washington team president Bruce Allen released a statement on Twitter Monday afternoon. If they use the transition tag (which is much more likely), they'd owe him $28.7 million. "But despite our repeated attempts, we have not received any offer from Kirk's agent this year".

Cousins has made some serious bank betting on himself, but in those past two seasons he's had the players and coaches on the squad that made that a safe bet.

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.

Kirk Cousins enters his second consecutive season playing for the Washington Redskins under NFL's franchise tag. The Vikings do seem as a bit of an odd choice for Cousins to settle on, but Graziano provided his reasoning for them being on this list. However, his leverage placed him in an earnings bracket the Redskins were unable or unwilling to reach.

Yet, the May offer is on par for how the Redskins have miscalculated Cousins in this entire process.

Cousins will make $23.9 million on the franchise tag in 2017.

So from Cousins' standpoint, there was no point in signing a contract with $53 million guaranteed when, over the next two seasons (with the transition tag), he'll make $52.643 in guaranteed money without the long term deal, and still have Washington on the hook.

Al Pacino as Coach Joe Paterno: First Peek
A photo of Pacino made up as the former Penn State coach has been revealed, and the resemblance is uncanny. Pacino starred in Levinson's " You Don't Know Jack ", which followed the legal troubles of Jack Kevorkian.

Washington could use the franchise tag for an unprecedented third year, but at the cost of almost $35.4 million. Now it turns out he doesn't even know the guy's name.

Cousins did add a few things that will have Redskins fans feeling somewhat better about the possibility of him staying in Washington, though.

But his outing in Texas was a positive one, and if he has even a solid season in San Francisco some will wonder why the 49ers should spend a mint on Cousins, who is 19-22-1 as an National Football League starter, when they have any adequate and far cheaper option in Hoyer (as well as a player similar to Cousins in rookie C.J. Beathard) already in the organization. But, to look at what the president said without having more details about the deal, the offer presented to Cousins- as laid out anyway - was a pay cut. But that would be an expensive proposition. If he leaves as a free agent, they'd receive a compensatory pick in 2019.

Why, then, did his camp not make a counter to the Redskins' last contract offer?

The Redskins first approached Cousins's reps about a deal in December 2015 (before a road game against the Bears) and were told that he wanted to play the year out before negotiating. "We feel like there's certainly a lot to offer, and we're a good place to play for quarterbacks".

Cousins earned the eighth-highest overall grade among NFL quarterbacks last season from Pro Football Focus. I mean, nobody is picking the Redskins to win the NFC East this season, are they?

Bell, 25, ran for 1,268 yards and seven touchdowns and caught another 75 passes in 12 games for Pittsburgh in 2016. "He communicated with me that they were going to need to let the story be known as to where they were coming from, and I said I totally understand that". In three of their last six games, he finished with a passer rating of less than 79.
