    According to ESPN, the sides are far apart on money and length of the contract.
    We know they want to part ways with Robert "The Bust" Griffin III.

    So what is Washington to do? Lay the franchise tag on Cousins which could cost them $20 million for 1 season?

    Or let both QB's walk and pick up a QB in the draft?
    Trade for someone else like Sam "Mr. Injury" Bradford?

    What would you do?

    Offer him $10M, he's not worth more. At least not from the last couple of games I saw him in. Might have a bad year or two but saddling your team with huge contracts for duds is worse.

    If Cousins signs with another team he will be doing them a huge favor. Scott Mitchell/Matt Cassell 2.0

    No Michigan State QB will ever be worth $20M+ a year.

    The franchise tag is a bit high for him, but it's still smarter than giving him a long term deal

    Let em both go, draft a young prospect, bring in a experienced ( pocket qb, no runners) quarterback.

    He'll get his money. Starting qb's are scarce. Even the Tanneyhills get fifteen mil.

    He's average but average in this league gets you in the playoffs with a good defense. See Alex Smith and Peyton this year.

    Cousins will get franchised. In the soft NFC East, Redskins could win the division again next year with him. W/o him it could be another decade of sifting through shit lookin for a peanut.

    3-4 teams would break the bank for him. Texans, Browns, Jets, Rams, off the top of my head.

    Only FA QB's are Bradford and Chase Daniel. Fotzpatrick and Osweiler are going to resign. Skins need to bite the bullet for one year. If Cousins proves he's worthy. then give him a long term deal.
