Kirk Cousins breaks his silence after Redskins trade for Alex Smith

Kirk Cousins breaks his silence after Redskins trade for Alex Smith

ESPN reported Sunday that the Redskins are discussing using the franchise tag to retain Cousins for the goal of seeking a trade to recoup assets after agreeing to a deal earlier this week to acquire Alex Smith from the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Washington Redskins seemingly acquired their starting quarterback going forward in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs that brought Alex Smith to Washington in exchange for cornerback Kendall Fuller and a third-round draft pick. "I expect to be a free agent come March 14".

The Pro Bowler still has to agree to the terms as the Redskins wouldn't be able to trade Cousins until he signs the franchise tag if that's the route the team decides to take, and it could potentially delay the process for months.

Tagging Cousins would prevent him from signing where he pleases once the new NFL league year begins on March 14th, because he wouldn't become a true unrestricted free agent.

Cousins does have some control and he could force Washington into an uncomfortable situation if they place the franchise tag on him.

Without a franchise tag, Cousins is expected to draw interest from a number of teams, including several that are selecting in the top 15 of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Although all signs point to Smith taking over as the starter for the Redskins, that might not stop the team from placing the franchise tag on Cousins for the third consecutive year, according to Schefter. Cousins could also undo pending trades by telling suitors he will not sign a long-term extension, lessening the desire of any interested team to part with draft picks or other players via trade.

After this trade, that leaves about five teams that are in the mix for a quarterback this offseason: the Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, and Cleveland Browns.

The franchise tagging window goes from February 20 to March 6.

Cousins has gone on the record as saying that money will not the sole determining factor, however, as after dealing with the Redskins he wants to join a stable franchise that can also win, which would take the Browns out of the running. He has not missed a game in any of the past three seasons.

"The team's gotta do what's best for them", Cousins told TMZ Sports on Thursday at the EA Sports Madden Bowl.

"Anytime you hear positive things from your peers it means a great deal", Cousins told USA Today.
