Kirk Cousins has decided that he will sign the Washington Redskins franchise tag. This is the second straight off-season that he will do this.

Cousins had been franchise tagged because the team has failed to reach a long-term deal. It does not appear like Cousins and his team will finally reach a long-term deal, as of yet.

He has been frustrated with the team. And that’s why his name was mentioned with the San Francisco 49ers.

Kyle Shanahan, the new 49ers head coach, was previously the Redskins offensive coordinator. On Thursday morning, he requested a trade to the West Coast to owner Daniel Snyder.

But Snyder rejected that stance and tried to calm his quarterback down to stay with the team.

During the 2016 season, Cousins had a career-high 4,917 passing yards. He had 25 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.

He is 19-21-1 in his career, as a Redskins starter. He has 12,113 passing yards with 72 touchdowns and 42 interceptions.
