Redskins will use a tag on Kirk Cousins; They just do not know which tag to use

Redskins will use the tag on Kirk Cousins, but are still undecided on which tag they will use

The Washington Redskins are in a sticky predicament, because they have a quarterback who is playing well, but he is truly not worth 19.748 million dollars a season (Franchise price).  The transition tag is around 17.5 million, but another team can sign Cousins to a tender offer, which the Redskins would have to either match or not.

If you remember last year the Buffalo Bills paid Charles Clay a tons of money to pry him away from the Dolphins, then this year they restructured his contract. 

The Redskins have a tough choice to make, but at the end of the day, Cousins should be pumped. Last season he only made around 660k dollars. So he is looking at an extremely large raise in 2016.
