  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Still no trade talks
    By RotoWire Staff

    Redskins president Bruce Allen said the team hasn't discussed trading Cousins, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. "I can't keep up with the rumors," Allen said. "Kirk and I have talked almost a dozen times this offseason, and we get to laugh when we hear these different rumors. We haven't talked to anyone." The Redskins used the franchise tag on Cousins for a second straight offseason, which led to rumors the team could trade him if negotiations on a long-term deal weren't going well. The two sides have until July 15 to reach an agreement, and even if nothing comes to pass, it seems the Redskins would rather risk losing Cousins without compensation next offseason than deal him now and essentially give up their chances of competing in 2017. Meanwhile, the team lost aging wideouts DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency, but then acted quickly to sign Terrelle Pryor (finger) to a one-year, $8 million deal. The team also added Brian Quick, who provides some insurance for 2016 first-round selection Josh Doctson. Washington's backfield looks to be the weak point of the offense, but the upcoming draft could take care of that, featuring a slew of running backs with early-round potential.

  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Didn't ask for trade
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins said he didn't ask for a trade, but rather asked Redskins owner Dan Snyder and team president Bruce Allen if they were thinking about trading him, The Washington Post reports. Some of last week's reports were apparently inaccurate, as Cousins said he hasn't asked for a trade and was told the team isn't trying to trade him. While a long-term contract still hasn't been worked out, Cousins did sign his franchise tender Friday, setting the stage for the two sides to resume negotiations. Even if no agreement is reached, it seems the Redskins are fine with keeping Cousins around for another season under the franchise tag. The 49ers were the team most often mentioned in trade rumors, but it seems the rumors were exactly that. Unless another team completely blows them away with an unexpected trade offer, the Redskins will keep Cousins under center in 2017.

  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Signs franchise tender
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins signed his franchise tender Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Cousins locked in his $24 million contract for the upcoming season and is now eligible to participate in team offseason programs. Washington reportedly has no interest in trading the quarterback despite rumors swirling throughout the offseason. However, now that he's under contract, the team is able to review its options. Cousins ended last season with 4,917 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions through 16 games.

  • Cousins is expected to sign the Redskins' franchise tag in the near future, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. There's nary a recipient of a franchise tag worthy of two first-round selections, and clearly Cousins falls within this arena in NFL circles. One potential landing spot was seemingly filled when the 49ers brought former college teammate Brian Hoyer into the fold this week. With no other interested party emerging, Cousins may see the writing on the wall and opt to stick with the only team he's known as a professional. If he indeed remains in Washington, the offense will boast different playmakers following the departure of wide receivers Pierre Garcon (to the 49ers) and DeSean Jackson (to the Bucs). However, Cousins will still have Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis at his disposal, as well as a pair of intriguing wideout prospects, Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson (Achilles).

  • Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Asking for trade
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cousins recently asked Redskins owner Dan Snyder for a trade, ESPN.com reports. The Redskins remain hesitant to make a long-term commitment to Cousins, who understandably doesn't want to play under the franchise tag for a second straight season. He wants permission to discuss long-term contracts with other teams, who would then have to complete a trade with the Redskins after reaching terms with the 28-year-old quarterback. In addition to being frustrated with the team's stance in negotiations, Cousins probably doesn't like the idea of playing in a Washington offense that's expected to lose both Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson in the coming days. San Francisco is the most frequently mentioned landing spot, though the Niners have already reached an agreement with Brian Hoyer.
