Redskins Place Franchise Tag On Kirk Cousins

Posted Mar 1, 2016

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have placed the franchise tag on quarterback Kirk Cousins.

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have placed the franchise tag on quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Last season, Cousins (6-3, 202) set numerous franchise records while leading the Redskins to the 2015 NFC East title. He set single-season team records for attempts (543), completions (379), passing yards (4,166) and 300-yard passing games (seven). Cousins threw a touchdown pass in all 16 regular season games, becoming the first player in team history to throw a touchdown in all 16 games in a season since the adoption of the 16-game schedule in 1978.

Cousins is entering his fifth NFL season after originally being selected by the Redskins in the fourth round (102nd overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. For his career, Cousins has appeared in 30 regular season games with 25 starts, completing 619-of-950 pass attempts for 7,196 yards with 47 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.

Cousins, 27, played collegiately at Michigan State from 2007-11, where he was a three-time team captain and earned Academic All-Big Ten Conference honors all four seasons in which he played. Cousins was born on Aug. 19, 1988, and attended Holland Christian H.S. in Holland, Mich.
