  1. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    Sorry if you've posted this answer but, what is your take on what should happen with the whole QB situation? By your most recent responses you don't want Kirk, so the options are: 1) Let Colt McCoy play -- extremely laughable 2) Draft one of the shiny new QB's from the draft -- HUGE question mark and with the Redskins reputation. Since 1999, QB's taken in the draft: Todd Husak, Sage Rosenfels, Patrick Ramsey, Gibran Hamdan, Jason Campbell, Jordan Palmer, Colt Brennan, RG3, Kirk Cousins, Nate Sudfeld. So, why should we believe the Redskins will be able to draft a QB and then actually allow them to succeed? Oh wait, we are with Kirk Cousins... 3) Find one in free agency -- one's that will actually see free agency? Maybe AJ McCarron (huge unknown), Teddy and Bradford (injuries and still nothing special), and yeah, a BUNCH of JAG's (just another guy). I do agree though you simply don't just overpay for Kirk but if it's something doable (~24M) then you do it. Imagine a real defense and a running game with Kirk. A defense that wouldn't allow the Saints to get over 200 yards and 18 points in 5 minutes to end the game. Or make history as the worst 3rd down defense in modern NFL history last season.

    Yeah Phil Taylor. I liked him a lot in training camp and according to reports coming out near the end of camp he was the clear favorite to take the role. He's a free agent but I doubt many other teams will take a chance on him since he does have quite the history of injuries (2016 - Broncos, IR in training camp for knee and then us in 2017), so he may be able to sign for vet min.

    I'm sure the Redskins will try and present something to Kirk and his agent before the deadline for a tag but Kirk has said at his event on Friday that he wants to wait and be thorough. He would like to test free agency so probably wont hear anything till March at least unless of course the organization releases a statement that they've offered or the present such an outstanding offer that even Kirks agent tells him to take it ASAP.

    Wait...so the Redskins are giving up draft picks to give away OUR franchise QB to the 49ers who have Jimmy G, to move up 9 spots? Am I missing something?
  5. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    He's more than likely not going to make a decision until well into March or later (wanting to see what other teams are doing during the off-season) which means the Redskins need to make a decision on a tag by March 6th, which I believe is the deadline.
  6. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    Yeah, he came out and said he doesn't want to do anything because for the next few weeks to a month, a lot of teams are still adjusting and changing personnel and wants to see how to the dominoes fall around the league before making a decision.

    I am not very knowledgeable about contracts, so the difference between guaranteed at signing and total guaranteed is that: Guaranteed at signing is no matter what, no conditions to be met, the player will receive the amount from the contract, while total guaranteed is the guaranteed at signing + any further conditional goals being met (roster bonus, workout bonus, etc). I believe Stafford was $60.5M guaranteed at signing and $92M total guaranteed. Could the Redskins work in goals such as; pro-bowl selection, make the playoff, etc or would that be too much for a player to bet on in order to get their money? Say, the Redskins offer Cousins a 5-year, $145 million contract with $65M guaranteed at signing and $100M total guaranteed and use a opt-out after 4 years with a roster bonus on the last two years at like $10M and $15M so if the Redskins don't like the direction it's all going after a few years they can get rid of Cousins and not pay that conditional guarantee? And so, work in playoff/pro-bowl appearances to total around $5M or so as another work around to lower the possible actual payment if conditions were not met? Not sure if this is just way out of bounds that no player or agent would consider, just free thinking and wanting to get someones feedback who knows this kind of thing (and sorry if this has been combed over so many times already that you want to strangle me) haha

    This is completely exhausting as a fan to hear about and to know how insane the whole situation has been To me there's only really two options going forward (this goes along with what Cooley and Kevin have talked about as well): 1) Long Term Deal: Get it done, Kirk is here to stay for the foreseeable future and we continue to develop with him at the helm. Use the top draft pick for either an elite back or defense. 2) Sign & Trade: Sign Cousins and then try to trade with Denver (or someone in the top 6 in the draft) and ask for their 1st Round Pick at minimum (maybe a 2nd or 3rd next draft) and then use that top 6 pick on the QB of the future and then the 13th pick on either the stud RB or defense. No more of this 1 more year please! It's tiring, the team won't do anything and you can't plan for the future and the team isn't good enough to hopefully make the Super Bowl next season so 1 year with Kirk is completely and utterly pointless. Gruden has to be frustrated, the team has to be frustrated at this, who know what's going to happen at the most important position on the team.

    Isn't he still technically a Redskins until Free Agency begins in March?
  10. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    Yeah, had no clue where that thought process was coming from and didn't seem like something Cousins is seeking. Thanks!
  11. Will Cousins Play For The Skins In 2018

    I do apologize if this was brought up on a previous page or not but earlier this week Cooley and Kevin were talking Cousins and LTD, naturally of course, and Cooley brought up the idea of a 3-year, fully guaranteed deal (at about $26 million a year) and that Cousins would be happy with that deal. I don't know if that's Cooley just talking out of his own thoughts or if he's actually hearing anything but thought it was another option out there. Thoughts?

    It's going to be hilarious to read through this after Kirk signs a 5-year deal to stay with the Redskins after the season is over. Right guys? Right?

    You kind don't like kind the word kind? Sheesh haha, whoops, good catch.

    Agreed, I kind of was kind of aiming at the whole WR's thing about Kirk and how in general, it seems like that all that needs to be said at the beginning of the article and sometimes gives a writer the sense they can then put in what they want. Should have been a bit more specific, my bad. But yeah, it tends to be a lot of truth when it comes to the Redskins unfortunately, just crazy how things are handled in the front office.
