Summary

Kirk Cousins answered his critics last year with a dominant season as the full-time starter. Four years ago Washington took flack for drafting Cousins in the same draft that landed them Robert Griffin. Yet, Griffin's injuries and inconsistency opened the door for Cousins in 2014. In 2015, Cousins got his chance to be THE man and accomplished the unthinkable -- he led his team to an NFC East crown when they were the consensus choice to finish at the bottom of the standings. Make no mistake, Cousins was not a game manager -- he was the engine of the offense. Cousins completed a league-leading 69.8% of his passes, and threw a franchise-record 4,166 yards to go along with 29 touchdowns and only 11 interceptions. His decisiveness is an ideal fit for Jay Gruden's precision-passing attack, and Cousins enters 2016 with more depth in the receiving corps. (May 19)

Redskins | Kirk Cousins playing for big money (Tue Jul 19, 02:55 AM) - Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins will receive $19.95 million for one year under the tag this year. The team was unwilling to give him a long-term deal, as general manager Scot McCloughan believes he can find a comparable quarterback who will be much cheaper than Cousins at some point in the next year or two.

Our View: Cousins gambled on himself when he signed his one-year franchise tender earlier this year. He lost the leverage of a potential holdout (since he's under contract), and the two sides couldn't come to an agreement. If he plays well this year, Cousins could get a new deal that breaks the bank...either in Washington or somewhere else. With the right performance, Cousins could be in line for a deal that pays in $20 million per year on average.
