Redskins' Kirk Cousins: No extension agreement
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cousins and the Redskins will not reach agreement on a long-term extension ahead of Friday's deadline, Yahoo! reports.

Cousins' representatives and the Redskins have long been far apart on contract terms, so it's of little surprise that he won't go into the upcoming campaign with a new multi-year deal. Instead, Cousins will play under Washington's $19.953 million franchise tag, making him the first quarterback in 11 years to play under such designation. After a breakout 2015 season, Cousins will hope a similarly strong 2016 results in a huge payday next offseason, and with a bevy of weapons surrounding him, Cousins should like his current position.

Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Not expected to sign extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins is not expected to sign an extension prior to Friday's deadline for franchise-tagged players, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

If no agreement is reached by Friday afternoon, Cousins will play out 2016 with a $19.953 million salary. He'd be in line for a huge, multi-year deal if he were to have another strong season, but an ineffective or injury-plagued campaign could push him back into the price range for No. 2 quarterbacks. Cousins has a nice array of weapons to help him out, with first-round rookie wideout Josh Doctson joining a group that already includes DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, Jamison Crowder and TE Jordan Reed.

Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Making progress in negotations
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Washington GM Scot McCloughan is optimistic Cousins and the team will agree to a long-term extension before the July 15 deadline, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

If the two parties don't reach an agreement by July 15, Cousins will play out 2016 at his franchise-tag salary of $19.953 million. Washington would then have to wait until the following offseason to offer him a new contract, with the asking price potentially much higher. There's no guarantee a deal gets done, as the team is understandably hesitant to give Cousins true franchise quarterback money after just one good season.

Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Signs franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk Cousins will sign his non-exclusive franchise tender Thursday, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports 1 reports.

After he was extended the tag Tuesday, Cousins will be able to participate in the entire offseason program, while simultaneously working on a long-term deal. After setting career highs in every major category in his first full season as a starter, a happy medium is likely desired from both parties.

Redskins' Kirk Cousins: Set to receive non-exclusive franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cousins will receive the non-exclusive franchise tag from Washington on Tuesday, Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan D.C. reports.

Cousins' representation and Washington brass have been negotiating for some time on a long-term contract, but by placing this franchise tag on the quarterback before Tuesday's 4 PM ET deadline, the team will receive compensation in the form of two first-round picks if another organization swoops in and hands him an offer that he can't refuse. If the two sides are unable to reach terms of a deal by July 15, he'll play under the franchise tender of $19.953 million in 2016 and then be eligible for free agency next March. Setting career highs across the board last season, Cousins completed 69.8 percent of his passes for 4,166 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions en route to the NFC East title.
