Redskins QB Cousins Doesn’t Think He’ll Be Moved This Offseason

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins doesn’t expect to be anywhere other than with the Redskins in 2017. He’s already signed under the franchise tag and he doesn’t anticipate being traded, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

“I haven’t heard anything. I’m not expecting anything to happen,” Cousins said on NFL Live Tuesday. “And I’m looking forward to getting back to work with my teammates.”

Cousins and the Redskins remain at an impasse with their long-term contract talks. Cousins’ side did not counter an offer made by Washington — a five-year deal worth approximately $20 million per year — before the combine because it didn’t come close to what they were seeking.

Cousins will make $23.94 million under the tag this season.

Redskins president Bruce Allen has said multiple times this offseason he wants to sign Cousins to a long-term contract. Owner Dan Snyder has let Cousins know that he’d like to keep him here.

    He’s all about the money. Trade him.

    Sign KAEPERNICK on a one-two year deal for 8 million with a $$$ penalty for political outbursts, and incentives for great play. He’s got plenty to prove going forward.

    Pocket the cap change, and trade with the BROWNS for their #1 and 52.

    Pick DE MYLES GARRETT, and a S @17. Add two good players to DT, ILB at 49 and 52, then QB, RB, OG, in rounds three-four. WR in round five, another DT and RB in the sixth, CB and best available in the seventh.

    Sounds simple here, but isn’t, I know.
