Redskins Coach Jay Gruden Wants a Long Term Deal for QB Kirk Cousins

The Redskins could still keep quarterback Kirk Cousins around on a one-year deal. That’s not the outcome their coach would like to see, John Keim of ESPN reports.

Speaking on his show that aired over the weekend on NBC, Jay Gruden told host Chris Cooley that he wants Cousins’ contract situation to be resolved.

After two years of both sides saying they were OK with Cousins on a one-year deal, it appears that patience is running out. During a question-and-answer session with fans Friday in conjunction with his paid weekly appearances on 106.7 The Fan, Cousins said he was fine playing on another one-year deal, but added, “You can only just kind of go year-to-year for so long.”

Cousins has played the past two seasons on one-year deals under the franchise tag, leading to season-long questions about his future with the organization.

“I think something has to be done,” Gruden said. “I personally don’t want to go through another one-year deal, and just one year, one year. I think you want to have a quarterback in here that’s going to be here. And hopefully that is Kirk, and if not, we have to move on and do what we have to do as an organization.”
