Redskins don't plan on tagging Kirk Cousins

The New York Jets are ready to give quarterback Kirk Cousins something akin to a blank check, but they reportedly fear that even that may not be enough to convince him to sign on the dotted line.

Since becoming Washington's starting quarterback (QB), Cousins has completed 67.8 percent of his passes for 13,176 yards, 81 touchdowns, and just 36 interceptions, and had another dozen touchdowns on the ground.

Kirk Cousins was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Along with Robby Anderson, who is facing nine charges, including two felonies, stemming from an alleged police chase in January, the Jets also have Jermaine Kearse, a five-year veteran, and Quincy Enunwa, who missed the 2017 season because of neck surgery.

The league's official free agency period does not being until March 14, though players and teams can negotiate and come to verbal agreements after March 12.


Redskins senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams said earlier this week that he doesn't think the team would try to tag Cousins for a third straight season.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the Jets feel they can make the best financial offer of any of Cousins's free agent suitors. Their roster isn't great, but maybe a strong quarterback like Cousins could make up for some of the shortcomings. Any team that doesn't have a franchise quarterback must do all within its power to attempt to get one. Denver also has the fifth pick in the draft.

Elway, for one, isn't concerned, about Mayfield's measurements, saying, "I think that (stigma) has been broken". He was placed on the reserve/left squad list by the Redskins in September after leaving the team, which left him ineligible to play for the entire season. "It's one of the first things after Kyle Shanahan, the team's coach - and I got together, we talked about the culture we wanted to set and all that".

Minnesota has all three of its quarterbacks - Case Keenum, Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford - poised to enter the market as unrestricted free agents.
