Redskins Not Considering Transition Tag For Kirk Cousins
The Washington Redskins are considering their options when it comes to quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Reportedly, the Redskins believe that the $28.8M transition tag is “not considered a viable option” and will instead consider signing Cousins to a $34.5M franchise tag, a long-term contract, or letting him hit unrestricted free agency, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Washington will likely be weighing their options based on how Cousins performs for the remainder of the season.
While the Redskins have struggled to a 4-6 record, Cousins has played better as of late and has thrown for 2,796 yards, 17 touchdowns, and five interceptions thus far this season.
