Kirk Cousins Has A "Favorite" Team, Larry Fitzgerald's Future, And More

When does 2018 NFL free agency start?

The Redskins have until March 6 to decide if they want to give Cousins a third straight franchise tag, worth $34.5 million for one year.

The franchise tagging window goes from February 20 to March 6.

If the Redskins do franchise Cousins, the two sides could end up in a "game of chicken" as Cousins could make life hard for the Redskins.

If Cousins is tagged, his $34.5 million salary would count toward the Redskins' salary cap. He's also likely to become the highest-paid player in National Football League history, so there is no reason Cousins would be willing to "help" the Redskins.

The future of Kirk Cousins in Washington is looking less and less likely every day, but if he should leave this off-season, we'll always have this reminder of his time in our nation's capital. It looks like I'm going to be a free agent on March 14.

Cousins could also agree to the franchise tag, but then make it very hard for another team to trade for him - either by making exorbitant extensions demands or flat-out saying he won't play there beyond 2018.

"It was a surprise", Cousins said this week of Tuesday's trade.

A report surfaced on Sunday that the Washington Redskins are still considering placing the franchise tag on their once considered franchise QB.

Franchise-tagging him would force Cousins away from picking his new team in unrestricted free agency.

Thus, with the non-exclusive tag Kirk Cousins could seek offers from other teams.

As former Eagles president and National Football League front office executive Joe Banner noted on Twitter, the only way a Cousins tag-and-trade happens is if Washington definitely knows it has a deal in place before placing the tag on Cousins.

Cousins said he did hear this week from coach Jay Gruden about the Redskins' approach to the Smith trade. I understood that. They wanted to do a deal, but because I wanted to go a little longer, it put them in a tough spot. The thinking: Instead of letting Cousins walk for nothing more than a compensatory pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Washington can get much more than that for what many team's consider a legit franchise quarterback. So maybe he wouldn't delay signing the tag's tender.
