Redskins don't plan on third straight franchise tag for Kirk Cousins

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Washington Redskins don't anticipate using the franchise tag on quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Redskins senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams said Wednesday that he doesn't think they would try to tag Cousins for a third straight season.

Weird, a lot of media stirring the pot for clicks and trying to shit on the Skins, that never happens.

Definitely the final one. Perhaps. Maybe. Probably not.

Re: Redskins don't plan on third straight franchise tag for Kirk Cousins

Unless we win the Super Bowl, three years from now we'll have a pesky faction on here second guessing every move the Skins made with Kirk, making the case that if we stuck with him we woulda had a chance. And they'll ignore the fact that Kirk was not going to sign with us long term.

Some people just like to live in the past. I'm ready to march forward with Smith.

I expect a weekly back and forth all next year based on how he plays each game. The haters will be all over him for any bad games and the Kurt lovers will insist we’re doomed whenever he throws 3 TDs and 300 yards.

Who knows the exact time that became fact. Snyder started poisoning that well right off the bat when he gave RG3 the keys to the city and meddled when Shanny wanted to move on from Griffin. Smith was also treated very poorly by the 49ers way worse than Kirk had it here, yet he never complained and was a good teammate. Nothing against Kirk, he just doesn't have the thick skin that Alex Smith has.

Re: Redskins don't plan on third straight franchise tag for Kirk Cousins

When will people wake up and realize half the crap you hear about this team is made up by the sports media. No offense against some of those who work in sports media who are more ethical when it comes to reporting news, but I never ONCE heard anything from the team, officially, about tagging Kirk Cousins for a third straight time. Better yet, I even remember around the time the season ended - or maybe even before - the Redskins brass actually said they were not interested in tagging Cousins again. Yet, that sort of got swept under the rug and everybody ignored it.

Re: Redskins don't plan on third straight franchise tag for Kirk Cousins

@MySportsUpdate

Important note from @PSchrags this morning: Kirk Cousins will be looking for a mostly-guaranteed, short-term contract from a team (3-4 year deal) so he’ll be able to “double dip” and hit the market again as the price on QBs continues to go up.




That interview with The Fan a couple years ago told me all that was needed to say about Kirk. When he talked about how taking less wouldn't be fair to future QBs it told me he only cared about the money. Sure winning is nice, but bottom line it was about the money. To each his own really, but he needs to put down that Jesus facade bullshit if he's going to go this route.

well Schrag is pretty good so I believe the source. It also shows why the skins said NO.

Re: Redskins don't plan on third straight franchise tag for Kirk Cousins

I suggest a modification to the thread title. It should read:"Redskins don't plan on third straight franchise tag for Kirk Cousins after signing Alex Smith to huge contract because franchising Cousins at this point would be absurdly risky and why are we bothering with this deep in the offseason doldrums click bait, anyhow?"
