Redskins are tagging QB Kirk Cousins, per league source. Only decision left is whether team uses franchise or transition tag on him.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 26, 2016
At least 2 teams have talked to Redskins about trading for RGIII, per sources. Griffin controls process because he has to sign off new deal.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 26, 2016
UPDATE [3:29PM]: Or perhaps not...

Well, this is curious, isn't it? In Florio's post, he blasts ESPN pretty good. His sources are not only saying that no decision has been made, but that the team is leaning towards not using the tag. Then there's this little tweet:
The #Redskins are keeping all options open on Kirk Cousins. They have not ruled out tagging him and trading him, sources say.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) February 26, 2016
Trade him?! Wow. Some leaky people out there in NFL-land... Are the Redskins leaking false information? Stay tuned.
