Cousins Prepared to File Grievance Against Washington

Kirk Cousins has no interest in another franchise tag. But if Washington does so–especially after bringing in Alex Smith–he’s filing a grievance.“By the way, if the Redskins attempt to franchise Cousins, my understanding is that his camp will quickly file a grievance to block tag, based on Washington violating the spirit of the rules, which dictate that players are tagged as a mechanism for teams to buy time in getting a long-term deal done.”Again, the franchise tag ideally means a...

Report: Kirk Cousins Will File Grievance If Redskins Franchise Tag Him

Kirk Cousins will reportedly file a grievance with the players' union against the Washington Redskins if they designate him as their franchise-tag player, according to the Washington Post's Kimberley A. Martin.

Teams will be able to designate franchise and transition tags beginning on Tuesday and will have until March 6 to make those decisions.

If the Redskins sign Cousins to the franchise tag for the third year in a row, he will be unable to become an unrestricted free agent when the new...

Report: Kirk Cousins will file grievance if Redskins tag him

The Washington Redskins may use their franchise tag on quarterback Kirk Cousins, but he wouldn’t be having it if they did.According to Kimberley A. Martin of the Washington Post, sources close to Cousins have made it known that he’ll file a grievance against the team through the NFLPA if the team takes action.Many in the league see a potential tagging of Cousins as a petty move by Washington, as the team would have no intention of keeping him.

Even for one year a Browns-Kirk Cousins pairing doesn’t make a lot of sense | ESPN

Granted, if he’s tagged and signs the tender then, yes, Washington could indeed trade him. But, as has been mentioned often, all Cousins has to do is not sign the tender. Until he signs it, the Redskins can’t trade him and he’d count on their salary cap when the new league year begins (unless they rescind the tag beforehand. Otherwise, they’re...

Latest on Cousins: Jets willing to guarantee entire contract?

As our Sam Robinson detailed yesterday, any number of teams could pursue Kirk Cousins if and when he hits the open market, but the Broncos and Jets are currently considered the favorites in the Cousins sweepstakes (although it does appear that the Vikings and Cousins match up very nicely as well). Indeed, as Troy E. Renck of Denver7 writes, the Broncos will be “all in” on Cousins, which is about as definitive as a statement of interest can get. And, as Renck notes, Denver does have a...

Alex Smith Could Give Jay Gruden’s Offense the Balance it has Been Missing

Many Redskins fans have complained about the lack of balance in Jay Gruden’s offense over the last few seasons. Is that complaint really warranted?

Over the past three seasons, the Redskins have averaged 60.08% in team passing play percentage on the season. Only once, 2016 (they ranked 8th in the NFL), have they fallen in the top 10 highest in percentage on the season. They are usually right around the middle of the pack. You can see the rankings by year here.
