Washington Redskins and Kirk Cousins Break Off Contract Negotiations?

New, comments

Kirk Cousins and the Redskins have broken off contract talks, with no new talks scheduled.

Ruh-roh.

We'll keep monitoring the situation, but it is never a good headline when the team and your franchise quarterback stop talking.

For the Redskins' part, the franchise tag is a giant safety net. For Cousins, that could lead to the dreaded "h" word.

Holdout.

Do any of us actually think Kirk Cousins would hold out if the team tags him? I don't think he wants to, but I DO think he is essentially demanding that the team respect him, and show that respect with as many zeroes as possible.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

EDITOR'S UPDATE: Now there are reports out there (like the NBC tweet below) that say the team and Kirk Cousins are STILL TALKING!!! Great, and I just walked us right down Holdout Avenue. Stay tuned!
