There's no way they franchise him in 2018 for $34 million.

I'd play for one year then retire to hunt full time.

I want him to get paid piles of money so he can fund the Kirk Cousins Spartan Stadium Bathroom Experience. Because the current experience sucks balls, in a bad way.

I hate to say it but I just don't see Cousins with the Redskins next year.  The Redskins have painted themselves into a corner and they know it.  Cousins has all the bargaining leverage and the Redskins just don't have the cap space.

Cousins wants a long term deal.  The Redskins, right or wrong, feel they can only afford  a maximum of 15-16 million a year cap space on a long term deal.  That amount is simply not going to get it done.  A heavily back-end loaded deal with a huge signing bonus is possible, but that does not seem to be what Cousins is looking for.  

Unlike last year, it will be a banner year for teams looking for a QB in the free agent market.  Kaepernick, Romo, Cutler, Fitzpatrick,  Tannehill, Garoppolo, RG III (again), Keenum, Bradford/Bridgewater are all likely to be available.  

My guess is that Cousins will headline that list and the Redskins will make a play for someone less expensive.  

Cousins will get paid, just not by the Redskins.

The Bears? Jacksonville? Both possible.

Skins fans seem to think that Kirk would be open to taking 18-20 a year, as long as the franchise would improve in defense or other area's of need. That's what I garnered after reading comments in an article on teh internet.

He may be a nice guy but what athlete settles for 60-70% of what they're due to get on the open market?

As the article says he gets $58Million over the next 2 years from the 'Skins or is a mid 20s unrestricted free agent QB. In that case he might get $30million a year.

I'd guess a 5-6 year deal at $20-25 million/year with half of it guaranteed might get it done with the Redskins (or with another team if they release him). $25 million/year would make him the highest paid QB in the NFL...not sure I see that happening.

In the end it all comes down to guaranteed money.  Cousins is going to want a lot, the Redskins are not going to offer much.  The Redskins would happily do 20 million a year deal on a heavily back-loaded contract with little guaranteed money, but Cousins is not going to agree to that.  Again, Cousins has the leverage because putting the franchise tag on him makes it all guaranteed.

There is no way they tag him in 2018 for 34 million, it is just not possible.  So logically, I have to believe they let him walk this year because the free agent market will be a good one.  Lots of talent which will also helps drive prices down.

I agree that would get the job done, but I do not see the Redskins paying that. They have said they can't/won't.

There are lots of QBs. Not a lot of talent (other than maybe Romo).

Romo should give his next team 2-3 good games before his season ending injury.

In the end, this years free agent QB market will have much more talent that most. Osweiler would not get 72 million if he was a free agent in 2017.

The Redskins are not known for making great personnel decisions.

KC and his agent need to get a 5-6 year deal done after this season. Getting the franchise tag worked out for him this year. He's an injury away from costing himself a $100-120 million deal. He might need to give the Redskins a little (short-term) discount in exchange for a longer deal.

If the skins can promise to build up the Oline and make the D better, they have a good shot at being contenders for the Superbowl. Winning the Superbowl, with Kirks demeanor, could pay out more than his football salary. What marketing department wouldn't be drooling over the small town nice guy who makes it big to with the Superbowl? Son of a pastor and all that, lives out of a van for a summer.

Cousins will be fine. He made 20-million guaranteed this year. His next contract will be looking for around 50-million guaranteed on a long term (5-year) deal.

I could retire on 70 million.

I do not see the Redskins giving him 50-million guaranteed money. Some team will though.

If it were me, I'd tell the WA front office to take a couple mil per year off the top to free up room to build a better OLine and defense. Help the team and get great PR.

And he's got $58M guaranteed with the franchise tag. I think they would pay him the $34M in year 2. Otherwise he walks away for no compensation and the Redskins have a fan AND a player revolt on their hands. He's got them over the proverbial barrel and both sides know it. The question is how much is Cousins willing to give back? My bet is that it takes $75M guaranteed and $25M per year to sign him.

34-million is about 10-million more than the highest paid NFL player (Luck) and is a 100% cap hit. They cannot do that.

Even if they were stupid enough to do that, they HAVE to let him walk after that. It won't happen.

75-million is 10-million more than any other player's guaranteed money.

Again, that is why I believe the Redskins let him walk this year and sigh a free agent QB for next year.

Correct. Which is why he needs to do a 5-6 year deal with guaranteed money as opposed to risking that by getting hurt.

Guaranteed money is the only thing that matters in the NFL. I bet the Skins could sign him to 6 year $16 million/yr if he gets $90 million guaranteed.

Two choices:

1) Green Bay wins the NFC Central with Washington losing to the Giants

or

2) Kirk guides the 'Skins to a W over the Giants are possibly playoffs

Which do you choose?

From Shefter...

Kirk Cousins contract talks with Redskins taking encouraging tone

While it doesn't mean there will be a long-term deal by the July 15 deadline, there has been an improved, encouraging tone in the contract talks between the Washington Redskins and quarterback Kirk Cousins, league sources told ESPN.

One reason for the positive outlook is that Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has gotten involved, making it known how much Washington wants to re-sign Cousins.
