Why Kirk Cousins won't come to the 49ers in 2018

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Sunday that Cousins was not expected to sign a long-term deal. To avoid that, the Washington Redskins have until Monday afternoon to hammer out a long-term deal with Cousins.

Kirk Cousins was given the franchise tag by the Washington Redskins this year, meaning he will make $23.9 million in salary.

Shanahan played a major role in Cousins getting selected in the fourth round of the 2012 draft after the team traded up to take Robert Griffin III with the second-overall pick. Both years, Cousins has signed the tag, willing to risk a potentially career-ending injury instead of holding out. No team has ever placed a franchise tag on a QB for two straight seasons, let alone a third... the odds of this happening in 2018 dip drastically.

What happens if Redskins tag Cousins again next year?

It could roll over ita unspent room into next season, giving it more than enough ammunition to lure Cousins in free agency.

How much money is Cousins worth to the Redskins?

JD (U) Deputy Leader in the Assembly Shyam Rajak, however said, "Everybody should maintain transparency in public life". Labour Minister Vijay Prakash, who is from the RJD, said, "I do not know why Tejaswiji did not come to the function".

By not signing Cousins, the Redskins are saying they don't believe Cousins can win a Super Bowl. Washington can not negotiate with its franchise QB until after the season.

Naturally, this has prompted the idea Cousins hits the free-agent market in 2018 and would likely be one of the highest paid quarterbacks to be targeted.

The market-rate: It would have to be more than $25 million a year for at least five years; it would have to be a pure guarantee of more than $50 million and it would have to total more than the $125 million Derek Carr deal just landed with the Raiders.

Washington also could transition him for $28,732,320 million, but another team would have the ability to sign him to an offer sheet that Washington would then have seven days to match.
