Chiefs fans rally around Alex Smith with charitable support

However, there are rumblings that the Redskins could still place the franchise tag on Cousins, doing so for the third consecutive year. If they end up doing so, the first day to franchise players is February 20th.

Maybe it is just a bluff by the Redskins, but tagging Cousins could end up being one of the biggest stories of the National Football League offseason. His play on New Year's Eve - 62.9 percent passing, 284 yards and a 76.4 passer rating - made it clear the Chiefs were ready to pass the torch and that Smith's time in Kansas City was probably over.

If Cousins is tagged, his $34.5 million salary would count toward the Redskins' salary cap. Broncos linebacker Von Miller is among the players who has talked about what Cousins would mean to his team this week. Washington is moving on from Cousins because it just traded with the Chiefs for Alex Smith.

The Jets can't go into next season with their current quarterback situation as it's expected they should have at least one, maybe even two new faces in the mix. He wouldn't be a free agent and the Redskins couldn't trade him.

Others teams rumored to be in the hunt are the Cardinals and Vikings, whose radio voice Paul Allen of KFAN reported that a source told him that the Vikings are "number one with a bullet" on Cousins' list. That would significantly reduce what the Redskins could get for him from that team.

Until Cousins signs the tag, Washington would be on the hook for the amount of his tag, which, because he was tagged a year ago, would be approximately $34.5 million, or 120 percent of his 2017 salary.

The Pro Bowler still has to agree to the terms as the Redskins wouldn't be able to trade Cousins until he signs the franchise tag if that's the route the team decides to take, and it could potentially delay the process for months.

Now 29 years old, Cousins has started every game at quarterback for Washington since 2015.

But Cousins has no good reason to cooperate with the Redskins, and immediately sign the franchise tender to facilitate a trade.

"This only happens if Skins know 100 percent that they have a deal before putting tag on him", former National Football League executive Joe Banner tweeted. I understood that. They wanted to do a deal, but because I wanted to go a little longer, it put them in a tough spot. Yes, but in that case, Washington would not get the 2019 third-round compensatory pick that it would receive if Cousins leaves in free agency in the traditional way.
