  • NFL first 11 picks mock draft with the Kirk Cousins factor

Washington, meanwhile, faced the prospect of using a franchise tag on Cousins for a third time - to the tune of more than $34 million fully guaranteed for one year - re-sign him to a long-term deal or let him hit the open market, where he could draw the biggest contract in National Football League history. If they end up doing so, the first day to franchise players is February 20th.

Why the Redskins would use the franchise tag on Cousins.

If Cousins is tagged, his $34.5 million salary would count toward the Redskins' salary cap. And it seemed the only avenue toward that goal was signing the free agent Cousins to, likely, the most pricey National Football League contract dolled out.

For the previous year, speculation has abounded about whether or not Washington would keep Cousins, who will be a free agent this offseason. They would have to give up a draft pick or two and pay Cousins' expected large contract. He wouldn't be a free agent and the Redskins couldn't trade him.

But Cousins could also undercut any return by telling teams that express interest in trading for him that he would not sign a long-term contract in 2018.

The Redskins seem set on making it hard for Cousins, after kicking the can down the road with franchise tags in 2016 and 2017.

Schefter's sources said Washington is considering franchise-tagging Cousins, thus attempting to receive compensation for losing a starting-caliber quarterback.

Regarding the latter, there may be no free agent talked about more and pondered over than Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Meanwhile, if the Jets land Cousins, former Browns quarterback Josh McCown could become available, and would fit the role of a bridge quarterback to start games and mentor a rookie, possibly Sam Darnold or Josh Rosen.

Cousins said he did not speak to the Redskins until the morning after the trade. "I haven't had a chance to pick where I wanted to play since 2007 when I chose to go to Michigan State". So maybe he wouldn't delay signing the tag's tender. The thinking: Instead of letting Cousins walk for nothing more than a compensatory pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Washington can get much more than that for what many team's consider a legit franchise quarterback.
