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.
