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.
What team would give him a 3-4 year deal knowing(!!) that he will go the Franchise Tag route after that. I think any team would be crazy to sign their qb to that type of deal. Maybe a 4 year with a team option for the 5th. But 4 years basically guaranteed is nearly franchise suicide.

I can't see Elway agreeing to that type of arrangement. It really looks like the Jets will be the team, even if Minnesota is shooting itself in the foot with all their qb's.

Kirk is basically pulling a Darelle Revis and trying to get as many deals as possible. Lucky for him, you have desperate teams like the Jets who will give him anything he wants.

And the Jets will be a good situation for him, because he'll be able to pad his stats to keep his market value up and any L's could be blamed on the organization, just like it happened here.

Some people just like to live in the past. I'm ready to march forward with Smith.
we're moving on to kansas city

Well, when you can control the market, you can do as you please. That said, I'd love to see that shit backfire on him and he have a couple down years and his value plummet. I"m just glad the drama with KC is out of here. He didn't want to be here so fuck him. We're onto Alex Smith.

Alex Smith is already my favorite Skins player. Fuck Kirk and his agent, glad they're gone.

I really don't think he controls the market though. The way the media is fawning over him, and I get that it doesn't happen - ever - that a healthy top 12 qb is a FA, you would think he does. Feels like when a guy is at the draft and falls to the 2nd day.

Not my favorite, Trent gets that, but definitely in the top tier

Expected 30mil/yr. Kirk is loving this shit.
Actually, with MRyan you have gone to the SB, if he gets 30M, that sets a cap for teams talking to KC's agent, he won't get more (better not) than MRyan.

Word. We’re the team that had The Hogs. If Trent’s not your favorite then check your Redskins fan card.

Scherff is also an acceptable answer.

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

Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings vying for Kirk Cousins

What the hell? I thought the market was drying up for Kirk? Something about unrealistic salary demands?

“Only”4 teams? Pathetic.
