WASHINGTON — Wednesday was the first day for NFL teams to assign franchise or transition tags, for which the window will close two weeks from now, on Wednesday, March 1.
That’s the window for the Redskins to decide whether to tag Kirk Cousins for the second consecutive season. Odds are, according to Vegas handicappers, Washington will retain Cousins one way or another for the 2017 season.
Covers.com puts Cousins remaining in Washington next season at 1/2 odds. Meanwhile, the site has San Francisco as the next closest destination for Cousins, coming in at 7/1, followed by New York (Jets) at 9/1, the Browns at 13/1 and the Bears at 12/1.
For what it’s worth, ESPN’s Adam Schefter expects the Redskins to tag Cousins.
