Chiefs fans thank Alex Smith by Donating to His Foundation

Quarterback Kirk Cousins has said that he wants to go to a team that can win. Would he view the Browns as having that potential

If the Redskins tag Cousins, they would be offering him a one-year, $34.5 million contract.

Teams can begin designating franchise players on February 20. If the team is unable to find a trade partner for him, they would be crippled with the combined salary cap hits of Cousins and Smith this season. Cousins, who is expected to become a free agent, will have no shortage of suitors.

If the deal ends up being finalized next month, it will likely signal the end of Cousins' six-year tenure in Washington.

If Cousins is tagged, his $34.5 million salary would count toward the Redskins' salary cap.

Though the trade and new contract for Smith can not be finalized until March 14, the first day of the new league year, it means Kirk Cousins is headed for free agency.

The Redskins can't trade Cousins either if he does not sign under the tag.

Minnesota would be an ideal landing spot for Cousins since he wants to "win right away".

NFL Network reported that Smith will sign a four-year extension worth $94 million with $71 million guaranteed, which essentially locks him in as the starter.




According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Redskins are weighing the possibility of using their franchise tag on Cousins, a move that could lead to the two sides getting stuck in what Schefter described as "an offseason game of chicken".

The transition tag is much like the non-exclusive franchise tag.

The downside for Cousins is that he could end up stuck in limbo.

Cousins has been open about his desire in testing free agency, and he's closer to it now than ever before.

And like most things National Football League, there's betting odds on where a key free agent will sign, and now the odds are out on which team Cousins will be playing for during the 2018-19 campaign.

Cousins spoke publicly about the trade for the first time Friday, telling USA Today's Mike Jones that, like everyone else, he was shocked by the move. He found out after just completing a workout in his Minneapolis hotel. Meanwhile, the Redskins and other team work out a trade agreement.

Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has a decision to make.

Cousins previously told the Redskins he did not have any intention of negotiating a new contract until March.
