Kirk Cousins doesn't even want to play for the Washington Redskins


According to a Thursday morning report from Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Cousins "appealed personally" to Redskins' owner Dan Snyder in hopes of garnering a trade elsewhere.

A report claiming that the franchise quarterback wants out shouldn't be surprising, given the circumstances, but it certainly doesn't help the team as it tries to lure free agents and resign current players.

"I'm going to say conservatively, it's gonna be $26.5 million a year is the average, and $90 million in overall guarantees where at least $60 million will be fully guaranteed", Corry said then, when asked what Cousins' earning potential was.

Kyle Shanahan, the 49ers' new coach, was of course Cousins' former offensive coordinator with the Redskins.


Cousins, 28, has been linked to the Niners in recent weeks, as rumors have emerged that a three-way deal between the Redskins, Niners, and Dallas Cowboys involving Tony Romo is underway.

And, without a long-term deal getting done by the July 15 deadline, Cousins will reach the open market in 2018 and move on from the Redskins with Washington getting nothing in return for a sure-fire franchise quarterback. In the meantime, the 49ers are expected to sign journeyman Brian Hoyer as a stopgap while they find their franchise quarterback, whether that be Cousins or a rookie.

The 49ers put finding a quarterback at the top of their off-season to-do list after Colin Kapernick opted out of his contract. This includes a fourth-round compensatory selection, a fifth-round pick from the Redskins, a sixth-round pick from the Denver Broncos, and a seventh-round pick from the Cleveland Browns. There have been quite a few 49ers trade rumors since the end of the 2016 National Football League season, as the franchise is very unhappy with its 2-14 finish. While dealing for Cousins, completing the Pierre Garcon contract, and adding several other pieces through free agency might make the team a playoff contender in the NFC again, it might not address long-term concerns of the franchise.
