As the NFL inches towards the offseason, the Washington Redskins are getting ready for the tough option of whether to lay the franchise tag on quarterback Kirk Cousins for the 3rd straight season.
Tagging Cousins for each of the previous 2 projects has actually cost the club practically $44million, and a 3rd year would come at practically $35million.
With that in mind, previous Redskins basic supervisor Scott McCloughan – who made the previous choices to utilize the franchise tag on Cousins – signed up with 104.3 The Fan in Denver today and weighed in on the upcoming choice.
” He’s a great gamer, is he unique? I do not see unique,” McCloughan stated. “He’s skilled. Talented readies at quarterback in the NFL. He’s won video games, I understand his record overall is not over.500, I understand he’s not won a championship game. He’s competitive and works his tail off.”
While he does not believe Cousins – who’s led Washington to a 24-23-1 record over the previous 3 seasons – is always unique, McCloughan does believe the previous Michigan State star can win with the ideal lineup building.
” You simply have to have some skill around him since you do not desire him to be tossing the ball 35-40times to win a video game,” McCloughan stated. “You wish to have a running video game, great defense, great (unique) groups, and let him do exactly what he does”
Considering that taking control of as the starter in Washington, Cousins is 4th in the league in passing backyards and 3rd in conclusion portion. Ought to he end up being a complimentary representative, he ‘d likely be high up on the list for any group requiring an upgrade at quarterback.
