  Jets | Kirk Cousins could see $60 million in first year    Tue Feb 20, 10:00 AM

Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could receive an offer from the New York Jets that would give him $60 million guaranteed in the first year of the contract, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: The Jets are reportedly willing to do whatever it takes to land Cousins. They can front load his deal and still have plenty of room to make other improvements elsewhere.

  Redskins | A Kirk Cousins tag and trade not realistic    Mon Feb 19, 04:30 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins could theoretically be franchise tagged by the Redskins, but if that were to occur then Cousins would not entertain a long-term deal with his new team and he would make a whopping $34 million under the tag. If Cousins did not immediately sign the tag, he could not be traded anyway. Furthermore, the Redskins would not be able to do much else in free agency and also just traded for Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Footballguys view: Washington wants to get something for Cousins before they lose him in free agency. Tagging him for a third time goes against the spirit of the rule, and there have been reports that Cousins would file a grievance if Washington went that route.

  Jets | NYJ all-in on Kirk Cousins    Mon Feb 19, 10:34 AM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will have heavy pursuit from the New York Jets, who are prepared to pay 'whatever it takes' to land him, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Jets could use a franchise quarterback and Cousins is arguably the best one available. Whether or not he's free and clear, or if Washington is going to tag him and ask for something via trade is unknown at this point. What is known is that Cousins is likely to get a deal greater than the $27.5 million annually that Jimmy Garoppolo just received from the 49ers.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent Kirk Cousins is favored to sign with the Denver Broncos, in the opinion of SI.com's Peter King.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins to file grievance if tagged    Sun Feb 18, 02:23 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins will file a grievance if the Redskins decide to place the franchise tag on him, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Cousins can argue that the Redskins would be violating the collective bargaining agreement because the team would have no intention in having long-term contract talks with him or having him play on the franchise tag.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins the best available QB?    Sat Feb 10, 11:19 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is the 'safest bet at the position, in free agency or the draft,' according to an NFL executive.

Footballguys view: The safest bet is also likely to be the most expensive bet at the quarterback position. Washington may tag Cousins in order to get a team to trade for him. After acquiring his rights, his new team would have to pay him a deal near or greater than the $137.5 million deal Jimmy Garoppolo got from the 49ers. The Broncos and Vikings are considered the favored landing spots for Cousins.

The Cleveland Browns are not likely to be serious contenders to sign Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins, according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Cabot believes the Browns are more likely to select a quarterback with the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft and pursue a lower-tier quarterback in free agency.

  Redskins | WAS could place franchise tag on Kirk Cousins    Sun Feb 4, 09:41 AM

The Washington Redskins are considering placing the franchise tag on QB Kirk Cousins in order to trade him and recover some of the compensation they sent to the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for QB Alex Smith, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: This could be tough as it will keep Washington from having cap flexibility while Cousins is on the books, and other teams might not play ball knowing that Washington can't keep Cousins. This is a risky move that could backfire by keeping Washington from being players in free agency and getting little for that trouble.

  Broncos | Kirk Cousins eyeing Denver?    Fri Feb 2, 11:50 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he would 'love' if the Denver Broncos showed interest in signing him this offseason.

Footballguys view: This has seemed like a very obvious pairing for a long time. Cousins wants a winner, John Elway can close a deal, and the team has wide receiver talent that he can unlock. Consider Denver the favorite to land him unless we hear otherwise.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins surprised by Alex Smith trade    Fri Feb 2, 02:38 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he was surprised when he heard about the Redskins' agreement to acquire Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith.

Footballguys view: The communication between Cousins and the team seemed to break down as soon as the season was over and it didn't take long for him to remove Washington from Twitter profile. Only Cleveland is clearly lower on the organizational dysfunction scale.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins excited about free agency    Fri Feb 2, 02:20 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he is looking forward to hitting the free-agent market because he has not been able to choose the team he plays for since college. He said he will be looking to sign with a team that can win a championship.

Footballguys view: Denver, Minnesota, and Jacksonville are all candidates if Cousins is focusing on winning a title. Jacksonville is leaning towards Blake Bortles and Minnesota has three quarterbacks that were on the roster last year to consider too. In light of this, the Broncos are looking good as his future team, and the Jets are on the fringe.

  Bills | Kirk Cousins won't see Bills' pursuit    Thu Feb 1, 09:19 AM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins is unlikely to be pursued by the Buffalo Bills, in the opinion of beat writer Mark Gaughan.

Footballguys view: The Bills don't have the money and aren't as attractive as several other teams in the hunt from a "win-now" standpoint. It could be they are determined to make a run at keeping Tyrod Taylor as well, or jumping on a lower-hype player who hits the market.

  Jets | Jets expected to go after Kirk Cousins    Wed Jan 31, 11:36 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins has drawn the attention of 'quarterback-needy teams,' with the New York Jets 'expected' to be one of his suitors, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

Footballguys view: This isn't a shock to anyone. The Jets have a lot of cap space and a need. Cousins has a need to get paid. The wrinkle is Cousins' insistence that winning means more to him than money. He's been well paid the last few years so choosing a team like the Broncos, who are closer to contention than the Jets, could be attractive.

  Broncos | Von Miller wants Kirk Cousins     Wed Jan 31, 01:34 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins would be welcomed by Denver Broncos LB Von Miller. 'Kirk could take us over the edge,' Miller said, 'but that's the National Football League. There are a lot of teams that need Kirk.'

Footballguys view: The Broncos made a lot of sense as a win now team for Cousins, and John Elway can establish a connection with Cousins to close the deal, just as he did with Peyton Manning. Denver might be the strongest candidate for Cousins, along with the Jets.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins wants winning team     Tue Jan 30, 03:03 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins won't be solely focused on how much money he can make this offseason. He wants to be on a team that will contend for the Super Bowl. 'Is money a part of it? Sure. Is it the only thing? No,' Cousins said. 'It is about winning, and that's what I want more than anything, so I'm going to be willing to make sacrifices or do what has to be done to make sure I'm in the best possible position to win, and that's what the focus is going to be.'

Footballguys view: Read: Cousins doesn't want to go to Cleveland or the Jets no matter how much they want him. Denver continues to be one of the strongest candidates to land Cousins this offseason.

  Browns | Joe Thomas wants Kirk Cousins    Sun Jan 28, 10:36 PM

Cleveland Browns OT Joe Thomas said he wants the front office to use cap space to sign Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins.

Footballguys view: New offensive coordinator Todd Haley would be a good fit with Cousins (or potentially available Alex Smith), and they should make a strong bid for Cousins. The problem is whether Cousins would want to play for Cleveland are dealing with the Washington organization.

  Redskins | Former GM critical of Kirk Cousins     Sat Jan 20, 11:44 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins isn't a 'special' player, according to former general manager Scot McCloughan. 'You just need to have some talent around him because you don't want him to be throwing the ball 35 to 40 times to win the game,' McCloughan said.

Footballguys view: Cousins isn't special in the same way Drew Brees or Tom Brady is, but he is still one of the 12-15 best quarterbacks in the league by any measure, which means he'll be one of the highest paid players in the game and the centerpiece of a franchise. Whether he's a fantasy QB1 in 2018 will depend on his supporting cast, which is the gist of McCloughan's point.

  Redskins | Jay Gruden wants long-term answer at QB    Mon Jan 8, 01:35 PM

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said he prefers that impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins signs a long-term deal or the team moves onto another quarterback. 'I think something has to be done,' Gruden said. 'I personally don't want to go through another one-year deal, and just [keep going] one year, one year. I think you want to have a quarterback in here that's going to be here. And hopefully that is Kirk, and if not, we have to move on and do what we have to do as an organization.'

Footballguys view: Cousins has been franchise-tagged by Washington each of the last two years. He hasn't gotten a long-term deal that he wants, and the team is running out of time to get it done. They could tag him again in 2018, but the cost would be almost $35 million and he still wouldn't have a long-term contract. If Cousins gets to the open market, several teams should have interest in the veteran quarterback. Washington could transition tag Cousins so they at least would get something in return if they lose him to another team.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins will sign offer if tagged    Fri Jan 5, 05:43 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins said he would sign the one-year tender offer if he receives the franchise tag again this offseason.

Footballguys view: Washington could actually franchise Cousins for a third time in a row, but that move would get Cousins a one-year guaranteed salary of $34.5 million. We could see Cousins tagged with the idea that some team would trade for him and give him the long-term deal he covets. Washington may consider placing the transition tag on Cousins, which would also get them something in return if he is signed away by another team. It's hard to believe Washington will let Cousins walk without getting anything for him in return.

  Redskins | Week 17 game recap for Redskins    Sun Dec 31, 05:08 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 20-of-37 pass attempts for 158 yards, no touchdowns and three interceptions in the Week 17 game against the New York Giants. RB Kapri Bibbs led the team with 47 rushing yards on 12 attempts, while Cousins had a 12-yard touchdown run on his only rush. RB Samaje Perine ran twice for just three yards. Bibbs also led the team in receiving with 53 yards on a game-high eight catches, and WR Josh Doctson finished with four grabs and 37 yards. WR Jamison Crowder posted three catches for 25 yards, and WR Ryan Grant ended up with two catches with 23 yards. TE Vernon Davis rounded things out with two snares for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: Cousins had a brief resurgence last week, but that came crashing down in what could be his last game in Washington.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins makes franchise history    Mon Dec 25, 04:21 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins became the first quarterback in Redskins' history with three seasons of at least 25 touchdown passes.

Footballguys view: All that and Cousins has not been worth locking up with a long-term contract. Washington has placed the franchise tag on Cousins each of the last two seasons. They could do that again for 2018 (for one final time) with a price tag of $34.5 million fully guaranteed for one year. Reports indicate they are scouting the top quarterbacks likely to be available in the 2018 NFL draft. Cousins may not want to come back, and they seem ready to move on. However, expect them to tag Cousins (franchise or transition) so they get something for him if (when?) they lose him.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins completed 18 of his 26 pass attempts for 196 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Cousins was assisted by a short field set up by a Blaine Gabbert turnover, but he was still quiet in a home game against a west coast team. He's a low ceiling option against the Broncos - a might he might play for next year.

Footballguys view: Cousins still has a high weekly floor, but his ceiling has been lowered with the number of losses he has absorbed on the offensive line and among his weapons. He has a tough matchup at the Chargers next week and might on the outside of the QB1 ranks looking in.

Footballguys view: Cousins far exceeded expectations this week, especially against what is normally a stout Vikings group. With his line back together and his receivers are getting healthier, so we could be seeing an uptick for the Washington quarterback.

  Redskins | Kirk Cousins too conservative?    Sat Nov 4, 09:29 PM

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins needs to take more shots down the field, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'That's probably the one area that we can force the issue on a little bit to give these receivers chances down the field,' Gruden said.

Footballguys view: That aspiration is nice, but until the Washington offensive line is healthy, it's going to be near impossible for Cousins to have time to throw downfield. Expect a lot of short passing to Chris Thompson and Ryan Grant this week at Seattle.

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will be facing the Seattle Seahawks in Week 9, but he will not have two tight ends, two starting offensive linemen, a key reserve lineman and he might also be missing his top wide receiver.

Footballguys view: The Seahawks will be without Earl Thomas and Sheldon Richardson, Jeremy Lane and Bobby Wagner are questionable, but the losses on Washington's side are much more significant.

  Redskins | Josh Doctson earning trust    Thu Sep 28, 10:48 PM

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson is continuing to earn the trust of QB Kirk Cousins, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'And that's something that's got to continue to develop because Josh can do things not many people can do when the ball is in the air,' Gruden said. 'I think with that will hopefully come more opportunity for him to make plays down the field on the ball where he looks like he might be covered but Kirk might give him a chance.'

Footballguys view: Doctson is worth stashing away as the Washington offense supported three fantasy relevant wide receivers last year. Terrelle Pryor is fading and Jordan Reed probably won't be 100% all year, so the path to value is there is Doctson can stay healthy.

Washington Redskins WR Josh Doctson (hamstring) made his preseason debut Saturday, Aug. 19, and finished with one catch for 12 yards in a 21-17 loss to the Green Bay Packers, and John Keim of ESPN.com believes Doctson and QB Kirk Cousins need more time to work together to develop trust.

Footballguys view: Doctson is more of a bench stash at this point, but a worthy one with his athletic talent, the Washington offense's ability to support three wide receivers, Jordan Reed's injury history, and Terrelle Pryor's lack of experience with Cousins. It will take patience, but don't give up on Doctson early as long as he is healthy.
