Kirk Cousin Franchised Tagged


The Washington Redskins donned the franchise tag upon Kirk Cousins. It is a non-exclusive franchise tag so he can be signed by another team. However, the tag ensures that  Kirk Cousins will receive $19.95 million for 2016. I bet he “like dat”

“The Redskins have until July 15 to complete a long-term deal or Cousins will play under the tag. The sides do not appear close to a deal. Under the non-exclusive tag, Cousins can sign with another team, but the Redskins would receive two No. 1 draft picks as compensation. ” –Reported by John Keim
