Redskins to Place the Franchise Tag on QB Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins

It sounds like the Redskins will have their quarterback in place after all, as the team is going to franchise QB Kirk Cousins in advance to today’s deadline, this according to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan.

Talks between Cousins and the Skins broke down recently, but that’s not going to stop the team from making sure they don’t lose the quarterback.

Last season was a breakout one for Cousins, as Washington went 9-7, and the QB threw for 4,166 yards with an impressive 29 touchdowns and just 11 picks.

The non-exclusive franchise tag for quarterbacks is worth $19.953MM.
