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 expects talks to heat up (Mon May 16, 07:43 PM) - Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he believes long-term contract talks will intensify closer to the July 15 deadline.

Our View: Cousins has already signed his franchise tender, but the team seems intent on getting a long-term deal done. Washington GM Scot McCloughan recently said Cousins will be with the team "a long time." Deals get done at deadlines, so sometime in early July we should get more movement in this situation.
