Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins makes National Football League history

He will play under the franchise tag in 2017. Maybe Allen just doesn't think Cousins is a real franchise quarterback but he can't let Cousins go and land a long-term deal elsewhere.

If the Redskins opted to use the transition tag on Cousins, the quarterback himself would have another option - he could refuse to bring a deal to the Redskins to match, in which case he would receive a one-year contract worth $28.8 million, the highest single-season salary in National Football League history.

One thing is certain: We are in for another year of questions about Cousins' future in Washington. "I remember having different teachers and instructors who would call me Kurt". He said he would be surprised if Cousins signs before Monday's deadline. I'm going to pray, I'm going to look for peace and see what the right decision is. "I believe wisdom is never impatient". He's just an offensive genius.

Allen would go on to make the mistake several more times throughout the video, as you can see below. "He watches the tape".

Cousins will cost Washington $23.95 million for this season. Those three teams slapped the franchise tag on Trumaine Johnson, Le'Veon Bell and Kirk Cousins respectively in the off-season. So while there's a deadline this summer, the real deadline to make a decision on next year is next year. If the Redskins use the transition tag and fail to match another team's offer, they'd lose Cousins without compensation. That would drop his salary to $28.7 million but would allow Cousins to negotiate with other clubs.

In two years this team is going to be a total dumpster fire. The 49ers have vowed to continue to roll over all of their unspent cap money. The Bills have two first round picks and could use one of the picks or pair them together to move up in the first round to find their ideal signal caller. It certainly would be more cost-effective than doling out a $60 million guarantee (likely more) for a veteran.

But with ample cap space, the 49ers will be able to accommodate the financial requests made.

Cousins bet on himself last season then came up aces, rewriting franchise passing records. Washington did everything in its power to throw the former executive under the bus in the most public of manners (more on that here).

Allen's accent is the thing that makes his pronunciation of Cousins' first name a little tough to discern, but that doesn't make it a good excuse as a part of the big picture.

For his career, Cousins has appeared in 46 regular season games with 41 starts, completing 1,025-of-1,556 pass attempts for 12,113 yards with 72 touchdowns and 42 interceptions - all with the Redskins. In 2015, Cousins threw 29 touchdowns while completing almost 70-percent of his passes.

"There have been a lot of changes in our organization since the end of last season", Cousins said.
