Redskins Could Franchise Tag Kirk Cousins

The Kirk Cousins Saga in Washington may be far from over, even though the Redskins acquired quarterback Alex Smith to take the leading role for the team next season.

While teams such as the Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets and others are eyeing Cousins to hit the open market, creating one heck of a bidding war, the Redskins may have different plans.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Redskins could use the franchise tag on Cousins, forcing interested teams to negotiate a trade with the team to acquire the veteran signal caller.

USA Today’s Mike Jones also reported that this scenario is a possibility, say that internal discussions have taken place to discuss this particular scenario.

Cousins could complicate things should the Redskins decide to go this route. Cousins could delay signing the franchise tender which would slow trade talks and put a $34M cap number on the team, prohibiting Washington in the process.

Cousins could also refuse to negotiate a long term deal with any interested team, controlling the outcome in a way.

In doing this, the Redskins would lose to right to receive a 2019 compensatory draft pick.

Needless to say there are a lot of different ways that things could play out as the Kirk Cousins saga in Washington continues to play out.
