Bruce Allen doesn't know Kirk Cousins' name, calls him 'Kurt' multiple times

The team had until 4 p.m. Monday to sign the quarterback to a long term deal.

As far as Cousins' first name is concerned, a team representative told ESPN that Allen does, in fact, call the quarterback "Kirk", it's just that his Virginia accent makes it hard to understand.

"I just felt like I needed a little bit more time".

Foreman won the Doak Walker Award as the nation's top running back after rushing for 2,028 yards as a junior at Texas last season. "I feel like I wanted the next six months to give me more information about the organization so I can make a more informed decision".

Both numbers are significantly below Cousins' current value on the open market, and the quarterback chose to play this season on the franchise tag contract, where he'll make a guaranteed $24 million.

"I really don't", Cousins said. But on Tuesday, Cousins said all the right things during a radio appearance on 106.7 the Fan. And the hypothetical contract would not leave the team strapped of money, further increasing the odds of the team making a serious run at the free agent to be.

Cousins added that the Redskins' statement on Monday "doesn't rub me the wrong way at all".

Understandably, Hoyer was respectful and careful to not say anything inflammatory about his current team, or his former teammate. His take on Allen's statement, he said, "would be different than what maybe it appeared public perception was".

Allen is referencing an offer that came before Derek Carr and the Raiders worked out a five-year, $125 million contract this offseason. It seems the roles flipped this year compared to last. If the Redskins and Cousins can not come to terms on an agreement, it would mean that he would have to bet on his play improving for a third year in a row.

In all, Cousins said that he would prefer to return to the Redskins for the long term three times in his answer to that one question.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins walks off of the field after the Washington Redskins defeated the Green Bay Packers.

If not the Redskins, someone will sign Cousins next year, starting a trickle-down that will affect the teams that don't.

Put another way: Cousins didn't want to rush into signing a new contract, which means he will play on a one-year, $23.9 million deal.

There is a very real possibility that Kirk Cousins will be playing his final season with the Washington Redskins in 2017. "I just don't believe that to be true". But this is where head coach Jay Gruden needs to prove his worth and streamline the adjustment process. Redskins fans expect the team to mess up like this now. Washington only needs to win two more regular season games this year, and one in the playoffs. 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. Only a portion is guaranteed with a long-term deal, and it's something Cousins would like to see change. And the ones that haven't, it really wasn't their choice.
