Washington Redskins president Bruce Allen said in an interview with Chris Cooley on his radio show from the site of Super Bowl 50 on Wednesday, the management of the team is working to sign their current starting quarterback Kirk Cousins who can become a free agent in March. Cousins led the Washington Redskins to their first National Football Conference East Division title since 2012. The Redskins lost to the Green Bay Packers in the National Football Conference Wild Card Game on January 10, 2016. Cousins was a fourth round draft pick of the Washington Redskins in the 2012 National Football League Draft out of Michigan State University. If the Redskins are not able to reach a contract extension agreement with Cousins before the start of free agency, they will likely place the franchise tag on him that will cost the team about $19.7 million dollars for one football season. Cousins wants to remain with the Redskins but he is only going to sign a contract extension if the price is right.

I believe he has proven his worth to their organization. I was happy to see him do well this year. I hate that RG3 couldn't live up to his rookie season because he is a good player. Not sure where he'll land, but I think he still has the desire to play if he can stay healthy. Washington is headed in the right direction with Cousins as their quarterback.

I hope they are smart enough to hold onto him, because he's the best quarterback they have had in a very long time, probably the best I have ever seen play for them.
