Redskins QB Kirk Cousins not expected to receive long-term contract extension

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins not expected to receive long-term contract extension

Cousins ultimately put that to rest with his strong play, though it hasn't been enough for Washington and Cousins to be on the same page on long-term contract talks. And the two sides haven't come close to doing a deal in two years now.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported there is no deal in sight for Cousins before the July 17 deadline.

Florio said if there is no long term deal after this season, Cousins could make $28.7 million under a transition tag or $37.4 million under a franchise tag.

He died at Atlanta Medical Center on Wednesday evening from blunt force trauma due to his fall. Fans may have to wait a bit longer than usual for the next season of " The Walking Dead ".

But as mentioned in the report regarding McCloughan, the members of the front office still in tow weren't sold on Cousins in 2015 and likely still aren't given how the situation has played out to now.

They have until next Monday to do a long-term deal, though there's no indication that's even being worked on. Appearing in all 16 regular-season games in each of the last two seasons, the veteran signal caller most recently compiled 4,917 yards and 25 touchdowns against 12 interceptions. The day after the season ends, he and the team will have a chance to negotiate a long-term deal. Shanahan used to be the offensive coordinator in Washington when Cousins broke into the league.

However, the franchise tag will reward Cousins handsomely. The former Michigan State star turns 29 years old in August and is coming off a season that saw him rank third in passing yardage and yard per attempt. While that may be the case, the door is now clearly open for the San Francisco 49ers to make a move in 2018. The Redskins would then have one week to duplicate the offer he would receive elsewhere. Shanahan has been credited for grooming Kirk Cousins into an All-Pro caliber quarterback. Or maybe the 49ers would rather try their hand at landing a quarterback in the draft.
