Kirk Cousins Update
Starting today the Redskins can franchise tag Kirk Cousins. The deadline for tagging a player is March 1st so the Redskins will have to have a deal done by then or they will have to decide whether or not to tag him. Personally, I believe the Kirk Cousins isn’t going anywhere, and that a deal will be done. If the Skins can’t get a deal done and they tag him they will have till July 15th to get a long term deal done.
However, Cousins has said that he will play under the tag again so if they don’t give him a deal by March 1st it’s hard to see Kirk wanting one before July 15th. It’s been reported that Cousins wants a 90-110 million dollar deal over 4-5 years. In two weeks we will all know the final outcome.
