Kirk Cousins 24/7 thread

Cousins, Redskins still talking new deal as teammates stump for QB

A couple of key points to sum things up right now, one way or the other he's going to be the QB here next year, RGIII will not, and RELAX. There are people in charge that know what they're doing.

Eric Schaffer is one of the best in the biz in terms of contracts and cap management.

That may be true. But I don't trust Allen or Snyder when it comes to Cousins. And I'd bet that if you got Cousins off the record, he probably isn't too trusting of those two either.

Re: Kirk Cousins 24/7 thread

Franchise Tag for QBs almost works in the players favor, automatic 1 year guarantee of 20 million +.

Most players want a long term deal, instead of the franchise tag.

Yup, but his guaranteed number is the thing players and agents are always looking for. 2 years of getting tagged is gonna be over 40 million.

Nonsense. Ryan Tannehill got $45M guaranteed in his deal. If he was slapped with the franchise tag, and then put up the year he just had, there's no way he would get $45M guaranteed in the next renegotiation.

Playing under the franchise tag is incredibly risky for the player. Sure, it's $20M. But what if he blows an achilles or ACL? What if he pulls a Tannehill and regresses?

The player wants a good guarantee now. The prospect of playing under the franchise tag can be scary from his perspective.

All leverage rests with ownership in these cases. One of two things happens here:

1. Contract extension gets done
2. Cousins gets tagged.

If tagged, club and player have until July to get a contract extension done. If not signed by then, he plays under that tag for the 2016 season.

What if he does not agree to an extension after the 2016 season?
He can be tagged a second time and the cycle repeats itself.

Forget about RG3 talk of keeping him around. That ship has (or will sail). Ownership has all the chips in these contract negotiations and there is no way Cousins is NOT playing QB for Washington unless he gets hit by a truck.

IF the FO is able to sign Cousins at $10 million per year, you had better hurry up and get a pen in Cousins' hands ASAP!!!

Why do you even mention that number? There's no way the Skins are even thinking that low. Sam Bradford made $13M last year.
