Redskins & Cousins long term deal may be on hold

1:12 | NFL         The Biggest Contracts in the NFL

The NFL's deadline for franchise-tag players to agree to long-term contracts is at 4 p.m. Monday.

Washington could elect to keep Cousins off the free agent market by giving him the franchise tag for an unprecedented third season.

Florio added that such internal disagreement has persisted since 2015, when there was debate within the organization over whether Cousins or Robert Griffin III should be the team's franchise quarterback. Or maybe the 49ers would rather try their hand at landing a quarterback in the draft.

They have until next Monday to do a long-term deal, though there's no indication that's even being worked on. Cousins ultimately put that to rest with his strong play, though it hasn't been enough for Washington and Cousins to be on the same page on long-term contract talks.

How much money is Cousins worth to the Redskins?

Former Redskins general manager Charlie Casserly believes by not signing a long term contract, Cousins remains in a position of power. I don't know, that's what negotiations are for, and it's possible Washington's management could come up with more dollars at the last moment.

Shanahan helped develop Cousins into one of the league's top up-and-coming quarterbacks. For at least one more year.

And if there is no deal, then Cousins is on the franchise tag; once the season is over, Washington could franchise tag him yet again; but that would lead to a 40 percent raise - to $34.5 million - and that is a tough one for any team to swallow.

If the Redskins use the transition tag on Cousins, the QB would be able to negotiate with other teams - however Washington would be able to exercise its right of first refusal and match any offer Kirk receives from another franchise.

Granted, there are those who would welcome Cousins into the Niners ranks in 2018.
