Report: Washington may try to trade Cousins

By Matthew Coller

Only in Washington.

Kirk Cousins is set to be a free agent at the beginning of the new league year, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that Washington might franchise tag the veteran quarterback and trade him.

The tag carries and $34 million price, which could reduce his interest around the league, and Washington would be sacrificing a third-round compensatory pick by dealing him.

Washington traded for Alex Smith earlier this week, a clear sign they did not want to lock into Cousins as their long-term QB.

Kirk Cousins might not be so free after all…
