NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

Quarterback Kirk Cousins has recently appealed to Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder, asking for a trade without a long-term contract in place, league and team sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Snyder told Cousins that he should not anticipate a trade, sources said, and the quarterback is prevented from negotiating with teams under the exclusive franchise tag that was placed upon him on Feb. 28.

If the Redskins choose to trade Cousins, they would have to grant him permission to talk to other teams and work out a long-term contract before a deal likely would be completed.
