The Redskins can still trade Cousins, but would be negotating the deal with interested teams on their own. A recent report had the 49ers as Cousins' choice of destinations should he be dealt as he'd be reunited with Kyle Shanahan.(ProFootballTalk)
FF Today's Take:Cousins may have wanted to reunite with Kyle Shanahan in San Francisco but those desires have been put on hold. This is the first time a team has used the franchise tag on the same QB twice. The two sides have until July 15th to work out a long-term deal. Cousins finished as the No.6 fantasy quarterback in 2016 with 25 passing TDs and 4 rushing TDs.
