Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins remains in discussions with the team regarding a long-term contract, although the side appear to have reached an impasse. General manager Scot McCloughan remains optimistic and has said it isn't a foregone conclusion the Redskins would have to apply the franchise tag on Cousins by the March 1 deadline.
"There are conversations going on every day. I know (Cousins) respects the Redskins quite a bit, and I know he wants to be here. ... I've been through this many times, and it takes a little time. It's not something you do overnight," McCloughan said.
Fantasy Tip: Cousins is a near-lock to remain in Washington, so the only mystery at the moment is whether or not he will sign long-term or receive the franchise tag. In the extremly likely event Cousins returns to the Redskins, owners can consider him a matchup-based QB2 with upside in 2016.
