Redskins, Cousins fail to agree on long-term deal by deadline

But the Redskins don't sound happy about it.

The #Washington Redskins and star quarterback #Kirk Cousins are not expected to be able to work out a deal before today's deadline for franchise tagged players.

Washington can place the franchise tag on Kirk Cousins for another season.

"But despite our repeated attempts, we have not any offer from Kirk's agent this year".

At 29 years old, Kirk Cousins potentially could be. Allen may "remain hopeful" about a long-term deal, but that certainly doesn't appear to be the case from where we're standing.

Ticket buyers awarded War for the Planet of the Apes starring Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson an A-, according to Cinemascore. Given the film's continued durability, it should pass the $400 million mark by mid-August.

Mourinho, speaking ahead of United's opening USA tour game against Los Angeles Galaxy on Saturday, said Ibrahimovic could yet return the club next season.

The Redskins have viewed Cousins as being good, but not great, and their offers reflected that sentiment. It's easy to see why Cousins turned it down. It couldn't have been a hard choice for him.

With the franchise tag deadline arriving Monday, it looks like Kirk Cousins is again going to be playing under the tag, with which both sides are OK. Last year, he made $19.9 million under the tag. The cost to use the franchise tag on Cousins in 2018 will have a cost of almost $35.4 million. Translation: His move to bet on himself has worked out pretty well, even if he still hasn't inked a long-term deal. Fans of some woebegone National Football League teams already are advocating a "Suck for Sam" campaign for the upcoming season. He started 32 games the past two seasons and completed 68 percent of his passes for 9,083 yards with 54 touchdowns, 23 interceptions and a passer rating of 99.3.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Cousins is open to working out a long-term deal next offseason, though that's consistent with what was reported on Cousins this year and last, when nothing happened.

Redskins President Bruce Allen said Monday the team did not reach a long term deal with their starting quarterback after making an offer on May 2. Griffin's presence overshadowed Cousins, who was treated like an afterthought while Griffin got second and third chances despite struggling with injuries and performance. Think again. The Chicago Bears gave a $15 million-a-year contract this offseason to Tampa Bay Buccaneers backup Mike Glennon. Someone will pay Cousins in a quarterback-needy league. Because the tag will becomes prohibitively expensive when used a third time - over $34 million for Cousins in 2018 - and the deadline to negotiate has passed, he will nearly certainly become a free agent next offseason.
