NGT: Is Cousins lying?

LCtheINTMachine : 3/14/2017 12:52 pm
Now he's saying he isn't demanding to be traded. My guess is it's a PR move by him to say it's not the case.

It's 100 percent believable he wants to play in SF for Shanahan. Why would he act like he wants to work with the Skins? He clearly shouldn't and doesn't.
Cousins denies trade demand - ( New Window )
Because he knows he's stuck on Washington

for this year and wants to try to make the best of it.
Seriously, what's he going to say?

'I hate those douchebags, but I'm stuck'.
the whole Cousins thing

is just weird

It seems like Washington doesn't want him, but they keep paying him big money
How do you expect him to lead the team he's currently set to play for

if he's out in public saying he wants to be somewhere else?
Cousins asking 4 a trade wont help them get thel offer they need

They Skins FO has been trying to get Cousins below market value.

The problem is, Cousins has more leverage than any NFL player I have ever seen. The Skins offers the past two years have been about $4 million below market both years (Skins reportedly offered $16 million last offseason and $20 million recently).

Since Cousins hasn't taken the bait, the Skins figure it's better paying big money on a year-to-year basis than starting the process of finding a QB all over again. They are kicking the can down the road.

The only way the Skins win is if Cousins shits the bed this year or suffers a major injury. Something that will lower his market value.

However, they have pissed him off so much that he is gone after 2017. The Skins miscalculated this one by a long shot. Their best option is to trade him now (or even during the season if a team experiences a critical injury at QB), because he is walking after 2017 and DC will have gone through all of this for a 3rd round compensatory pick (basically a 4th round pick, which is when they drafted Cousins to begin with).

Cousins is cashing in and the Redskins are screwed

Cousins is getting 44 million for 2 years of play and is free next season to sign with whomever he wants.

The Redskins might have to use their #1 on a QB this year and hope he works out.
Cousins played this process  
RetroJint : 3/14/2017 3:48 pm : link
like a stradavarius . Do you think coming out of Sparta, low-draft choice expectations, an aftethought to RGIII, this guy would have even considered the possibility that he would get 40 million guaranteed for 2 seasons? It's amazing .
Fourskin's have totally screwed this up.

It's very hard to find a good QB. They found one and now they pissed him off. Unless those idiots trade him he will be on the market next year. Watch what kind of contract he get then.
I hope to God we keep these idiots in our division.
Agreed, Cousins holds all the cards here.  
Section331 : 3/14/2017 3:59 pm : link
If the Skins tag him again next year, they'll have to pay him $35 mill. That ain't happening. And Cousins would be crazy to sign an extension unless D.C. Throws crazy money at him. He'll be able to decide where he wants to play.
I'm surprised the Redskins aren't going halfway  
jcn56 : 3/14/2017 4:02 pm : link
and offering him some ridiculous contract, if only to offset all the other bad news they've had this offseason.

The organization is a joke

Why believe the story the he wants out? At this point, I'd believe Snyder leaked lies about his own mother.
Sure he  
BocaGiants91 : 3/14/2017 6:18 pm : link
Didnt ask for a trade. I am sure his agent did it for him so technically hes not lying.
Browns reportedly interested  
adamg : 3/14/2017 6:27 pm : link
Would be awesome if Osweiler is somehow the starting QB for the skins. Please God...
well he went to see Snyder  
mdc1 : 3/14/2017 7:17 pm : link
to discuss it and here we are. Seems like an adult approach contrary to some of the stuff in this thread. Not outrageous to seek out how you factor into the plans of the team and whether he should be planning for something else?
