Kirk Cousins not expected to get franchised tagged by Washington

Morris Claiborne

The Redskins drafted Cousins, 29, in the fourth round out of Michigan State back in 2012. In fact, the Washington Redskins moved up from six in 2012 to the number two spot to select Robert Griffin III. In three full seasons as a starter, he has averaged 27 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

- Cardinals: Drew Stanton, Blaine Gabbert and Matt Barkley.

Cousins played the last two seasons for Washington on a franchise tag.

Cousins, who has played under the franchise tag with the Washington Redskins for the past two seasons, is expected to leave the team this off-season after Washington reportedly acquired veteran quarterback Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs on January 30.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the Jets feel they can make the best financial offer of any of Cousins's free agent suitors. Don't count him out just yet.

Mike van der Hoorn, who scored Swansea's second goal on Saturday, added: "Andre wanted to show something against his old team". "As individuals they are top players, but with each other they are really connected".

The league's official free agency period does not being until March 14, though players and teams can negotiate and come to verbal agreements after March 12.

"I think we're going to explore all options in free agency and see where that goes", Broncos general manager John Elway said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday.

Cousins will not settle when it comes time to sign with a team.

You also look at the running game where Bilal Powell led the Jets with career highs in rushing yards (772) and touchdowns (five) last season.

How do you feel about the Denver Broncos moving up to number one? The Jets were thinking of cutting 32-year-old Matt Forte before he announced his retirement during the combine. But remember that Alex Smith has more of a history than those three years.

The Browns, after passing up Carson Wentz and Deshaun Watson in the past two National Football League drafts, have the first and fourth overall selections in this draft as they attempt to rebuild from a winless season.

Keenum, for his part, also has several suitors, including the Cleveland Browns, Jets, Vikings and the Broncos. As a team, you've got to always put yourself in a position in case (of) what might not happen.

It's hard to not see any of the appeal, right? "There is a possibility of some really good quarterbacks coming out of this draft". "I've just got to show off my arm - because that's where they're doubting me".

One team that absolutely would love to land Cousins but that could find itself on the outside looking in is the Denver Broncos. The Redskins may try to place the transition tag on Cousins in order to try and trade him.
