While the Redskins still have the option to work out a trade of Kirk Cousins to another team after giving him the exclusive franchise tag that is not going to happen, according to a report.
Speaking on NFL.com, Ian Rapoport said that the Redskins have no intention of letting go their quarterback.
“He is not going anywhere,” said Rapoport. “Really, what the Redskins did was answer one of the biggest questions of the 2017 offseason with one move. They decided that they are not going to trade him to the San Francisco 49ers, they’re not going to trade him anywhere. He’s going to be their quarterback for the next year and that is that.”
Team president Bruce Allen has said several times that the team wants to sign Cousins to a long-term deal. That may or may not happen but it appears that Cousins will be behind center for at least the 2017 NFL season.

During a chat on the #RedskinsTalk podcast last month, Washington's running back coach Randy Jordan clued in CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay about the way he teaches his players and the things he wants to see from them.
Now, though, thanks to an exclusive Redskins Nation video, you have a chance to truly watch and listen to how Jordan and his students approach their on-field work.
In this all-access Mic'd Up segment (which was filmed at minicamp and which you can watch in the player above), you'll see the assistant encourage Samaje Perine, correct Matt Jones and compliment Rob Kelley. You'll also hear every grunt, bump and cut, an important ingredient that these types of packages must have.
It's clear from the footage that Jordan cares about the details. Now, don't blow this assignment, and go check out the video above.

Special thanks to Redskins Nation for the video.
Three weeks from right now, Kirk Cousins will either have a new long-term deal or he will be playing on the tag. Which will it be?
