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' Su'a Cravens: Could begin career as starting linebacker
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cravens, who head coach Jay Gruden has announced will begin his career at linebacker as opposed to defensive back in order to learn the defense "from the inside out", could claim a starting role by Week 1, the Washington Post reports.

At 6-foot-1 and 222 pounds, Cravens was drafted as a safety, but is considered part of the influx of the new "moneybackers" breed, a defensive back/linebacker hybrid. Because of his versatility, Gruden presumably did not feel the need to pigeonhole the USC product into his college position, and will instead give him an opportunity to earn his initial NFL chops at linebacker. Gruden's rather surprising proclamation that Cravens could potentially even start as soon as Week 1 may not be far-fetched, considering the Redskins' dearth of talent at the position.

Redskins' Kendall Fuller: Candidate to start at nickelback
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fuller (knee) will be under consideration for the Redskins' nickelback role after returning from microfracture surgery, The Washington Post reports.

Fuller dropped into the third round of this year's draft because of the knee injury he suffered last year in college, but was widely considered a first-round talent otherwise. Fortunately, he participated in minicamp last month without setbacks, and declared himself healthy afterward. Fuller is fully capable of playing on the outside, but with Josh Norman and Bashaud Breeland locking down the top corner jobs, Fuller will be tasked to handle nickelback duties his rookie year assuming he earns the job in training camp and preseason.
