Just business....Cousins betting on a great season, more offers...maybe Washington makes the big commitment, maybe not...lot of $

Washington wanted a six-year deal with Cousins, with four of them not guaranteed

A year ago, Washington wasn’t inclined to guarantee at signing the amount that quarterback Kirk Cousins would have gotten under the franchise tag in 2016 and 2017. This year, that attitude changed; the back end of the deal was the problem.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the team’s offer that included more than $53 million guaranteed at signing covered the $23.94 million franchise tag in 2017 and the $28.72 million transition tag in 2018, and then some (by a little). The problem is that the team wanted four more non-guaranteed years after that.

In other words, the team wanted a two-year commitment and then a series of four one-year options. Cousins wasn’t inclined to commit to a deal that committed him (but not the team) from 2019 through 2022.

I am continuously amazed by how badly billionaires bungle deals with players. Somehow they were smart enough to make billions...

Yup...two years ago they could have tied him up for a song..."they weren't sure of his long term value".  Now, the table has turned.    ROFL

Speaking with 106.7 The Fan, Kirk Cousins said he did not make a counter offer to the Redskins because he "needed more time" to assess the organization.

Two completely different skill sets, but I hear what you are saying.  Snyder is one of the worst offenders though.
