Where will Kirk Cousins play in 2018?

Where will Kirk Cousins play in 2018?

The Monday, July 17, 4 p.m. deadline is rapidly approaching and, if no deal is done, Cousins will enter the season on his second consecutive franchise tag.

Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins are running out of time to come to a contract negotiation, and it could send them into "unprecedented" territory, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Now, Cousins will likely become the first quarterback in National Football League history to play consecutive seasons on the franchise tag, giving him unprecedented leverage in negotiations, if he continues to play well. I'm not the only one and we're not going to have careers if we don't have a great year this year, so we all don't look much further than this season. He's coming off a year where he threw for 4,197 yards and 25 touchdown passes. If they can not, the negotiation window doesn't open again until after the coming season. If Washington uses the franchise tag again for 2018, Cousins would get a 44 percent raise to $34.47 million, or they could transition tag him at a cost of $28.78 million. "While we would like to work out a long-term contract before this season, we accept this decision", Allen said.

Where Cousins plays beyond this season, whether it is with the Redskins or another franchise, will be determined next March. There has been a gap between what fans want and what individual members of the front office want in Washington for some time. However, there's nearly no way that they would feasibly be able to franchise tag him again.




Three quarterbacks have been in the news recently.

Cousins and Washington have always been engaged in long-term extension talks, with differences in money previously keeping the two sides apart. The San Francisco 49ers, coached by former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who loves Cousins, could have $100 million in cap space to play with next offseason. "Many of us are playing on one-year deals". Cousins is expected to earn almost $24 million for the upcoming season, which is $5 million more than he collected this past season when he guided the Redskins to an 8-7-1 record.

In 2015, he made $19.953 million under the tag. But there are plenty of quarterback-needy teams and not enough good quarterbacks to go around. If they use the transition tag and fail to match another team's offer, they'd lose Cousins without compensation. Someone will pay Cousins in a quarterback-needy league. But even if that happens, Cousins will still make his money.
