Kirk Cousins in 'good place' with Redskins after failing to reach long-term deal

A long-term contract for Kirk Cousins never materialized after negotiations with the Washington Redskins stalled because his agent opted not to return a counteroffer to the team.

So the quarterback — once again — enters a season with a one-year deal.

Despite that, Cousins insisted he's in a “good place” Thursday even though uncertainty about his future remains.

“That would probably be one of the misconceptions — I don’t know that I’ve ever bet on myself,” Cousins said after the team finished its first walkthrough of training camp.

“I think I’ve bet on the system. And it has nothing to do with myself. I’m just going out Julio Jones Jerseys playing, and there has never been anything but positive feelings. I’m excited to get to work here. My wife and I love it here, and we’re in a good place.

“I’m living the dream being a starting quarterback in the NFL. I got my hands full Image this season with 16 games. I talked about how in the offseason the ball is in the team’s court ... but See All 25 Top Selling Jerseys from Week 1 to Week 17, the ball is in my court. And I gotta go play football well, so that’s where my focus is.”

Washington assigned the franchise tag to Cousins in February for the second consecutive year, though this one was an exclusive tender, meaning no other team could negotiate with him. The two sides had until July 17 to reach a long-term contract, but the deadline passed without a deal. Team president Bruce Allen released a statement that day saying that Cousins “has made it clear that he prefers to play on a year-to-year basis.”

Cousins will turn 29 next month and is due $23.94 million this year, a 20% increase of his 2016 salary. Allen has said that using a third franchise tag next year has not been ruled out even though it Carson Wentz Jerseys would cost Washington more than $34 million.

But because Cousins and his agent, Mike McCartney, opted not to respond to a proposal the Redskins sent after Odell Beckham Jr Jerseys this year's NFL draft, speculation has emerged that Cousins wants to test the open market in 2018. For his part, the sixth-year quarterback has consistently said he wants to remain with the team that drafted him in 2012.
