Kirk Cousins breaks his silence after Redskins trade for Alex Smith

If the Redskins tag Cousins, they would be offering him a one-year, $34.5 million contract. Cousins works out a deal with another team. That would allow them to recoup something for him, and lessen the blow of dealing talented young cornerback Kendall Fuller and a 2018 third-round pick to the Chiefs for Smith, which can't become official until the first day of the new league year (March 14).

The number of donations from Chiefs fans to the Alex Smith Foundation has slowed from the initial surge on Thursday, but the updated tally is impressive.

However, there are rumblings that the Redskins could still place the franchise tag on Cousins, doing so for the third consecutive year. "They couldn't afford to wait so they had to make a move". From Cousins' vantage point, he has until July 16 to sign the tag, which would throw a wrench into Washington's offseason plans. You've got Kirk Cousins, he's given everything the last two years. "So does opportunity. If you're a quarterback and you're dying to be a starting quarterback, I'd go play in Alaska if that were the case". They wanted to do a deal, but because I wanted to go a little longer it put them in a tough spot.

Under this scenario, the Redskins could potentially get more for Cousins than just the 2019 compensation draft pick they would receive if he were to leave as a free agent.

Keep watching as Washington will be deciding on this move over the next few weeks as teams can being designation franchise players beginning February 20.

Of course, if the Redskins do slap the tag on Cousins again and he obliges, the Smith trade could go up in smoke. Much like the transition tag, the Washington Redskins would have seven days to match a signed offer sheet. On the one hand, Cousins could have some say in where he would be traded as he could simply refuse to sign a long-term contract with a team he is not interested in playing for. "I guess there are still some dates to check off, but it should be an exciting process". Cousins may also hold off on signing the franchise tag if there is no sign he could get a long-term deal that he wants from the team he is possibly traded to. "Whoever is in that room I'm going to help as much as I can, give away my experiences and help them have the best chance they can have at a good career". They lost three games by a field goal, the Vikings, the Saints, the Chiefs. Broncos linebacker Von Miller is among the players who has talked about what Cousins would mean to his team this week.

Between the time Washington tags Cousins and he signs the tag's tender (whenever he chooses to do that), Washington would have to keep that massive salary cap figure on its books, which would limit what Washington could do in free agency. Once again, the team is causing some National Football League shakeup as this move could impact other National Football League teams approach to free agency and the draft.
