Despite the speculation that Cousins wants out of D.C., the 28-year-old quarterback said he wants to remain with Washington beyond 2017, noting he'd play on one-year deals with the Redskins for the next 10 seasons if necessary. The Redskins fired general manager Scot McCloughan in March and revamped their front office in June, with Doug Williams elevated to the top personnel role.
Whatever the case, Allen didn't do himself any favors while saying they offered Cousins $53 million and mispronouncing his name the entire time.
"What's always been great about Dan Snyder and the coaches and the management and Bruce is that they never viewed me as, "You're a salary-cap guy or you're a lawyer" or you're a this or that", Schaffer said.
"I have a lot of respect for Kirk and what he's done and what he's accomplished in a short period of time", Gruden said June. Cousins laughed it off. During that span, Cousins has passed for more than 9,000 yards with 54 touchdown passes to 23 interceptions. If they franchise him, then Cousins would not be able to negotiate with any other teams. He thinks it has more to do with the franchise tag rules and the pressure created by the deadline.
The Boston Celtics signed Paul Pierce to a contract Monday so the 10-time All-Star can retire with the team where he spent his first 15 seasons in the National Basketball Association. It's just the rules of the league, rules that were set up before I even came into the league.
There has been a positive, constructive tone to recent contract talks, per sources. If he does not end up back in Washington, the most likely destination for Cousins might be the San Francisco 49ers. The dynamic isn't new, but this is an fantastic conundrum to face for a player who touches the ball on every offensive snap: If Cousins improves (or is the same), because of the way they've handled contract negotiations to this point they will have to pay unheard-of sums of money to keep their quarterback - and the only way to get out of doing so is to have the quarterback (and the team) get worse. I've seen it now successfully run with Matt Ryan and I just believe Kyle adapts his scheme to the players he has.

The chief prosecutor's office said Xiomara Soledad Scott, a nurse, had been killed and four others wounded . Opposition leaders said that was because it was only able to set up 2,000 polling stations.
The Redskins first approached Cousins's reps about a deal in December 2015 (before a road game against the Bears) and were told that he wanted to play the year out before negotiating. Cousins also could walk away and become a free agent.
"While there was a deadline this summer, the real time to make a decision for next year is next year", he said. If unsuccessful, team officials will weigh their options, which would again be using the franchise tag, placing the transition tag on Cousins instead, or letting him walk altogether. The team now owns the most cap space, with $63.1 million, and part of that will rollover into next season. He gets the first chance to prove he should be the long-term starter.
"Everything's trending in the right direction".
"Eric has a big role", Cousins said. No matter how much you love your team, trust me, you would switch in an instant if you were a player or even just an employee in the league. But I didn't choose when the deadline is.
