Kirk Cousins Contract: How Much Can Redskins QB Make in 2018?

But don't get too comfortable.

By not signing Cousins, the Redskins are saying they don't believe Cousins can win a Super Bowl.

The Boston Celtics signed Paul Pierce to a contract Monday so the 10-time All-Star can retire with the team where he spent his first 15 seasons in the National Basketball Association. If he plays this season under the tag, he will be paid $12.1 million. Again, this should come with little shock to most fans. He concluded his senior high school season without a scholarship offer, getting one from Michigan State only after the Spartans' top quarterback prospects turn them down.

The Player: 28-year-old Washington Redskins quarterback. Under that scenario, Cousins would then be able to re-evaluate his future with the Redskins after the season, all the while preserving the possibility to secure a long-term pact elsewhere ahead of the 2018 campaign. He led the National Football League by completing 69.8 percent of his throws during his first full season as the starter in 2015, and a year ago he was 83 yards shy of the 5,000-yard mark. Creator of catch phrases "You like that!" and "How do you like me now?!" Cousins, if he's using the $34 million franchise tag as leverage, could shatter that. It could roll over ita unspent room into next season, giving it more than enough ammunition to lure Cousins in free agency. And the Redskins want Cousins, but only for the right price.

Last year, Cousins took a rare step for a quarterback: he played under the franchise tag. Rodgers's current average annual value is $22 million.

Conclusion: As anticipated, no deal.

The second way of looking at this year is that Cousins will struggle now that DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon are gone. According to Allen, they offered Cousins $53 million guaranteed, but Cousins preferred to play under the franchise tag.

Something happened at some point during his time in Washington that seems to have soured Cousins on the team forever.

The four other players are Arizona Cardinals outside linebacker Chandler Jones, Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Kawann Short, Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Melvin Ingram and New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. Enters sixth season after being drafted in the third round in 2012. The cost to use the franchise tag on Cousins in 2018 will have a cost of almost $35.4 million.

It will be the second straight season he's been Washington's franchise player.

The Memphis Grizzlies have signed forward Rade Zagorac, originally acquired in a draft night trade in 2016.
