Redskins will use the transition tag on Kirk Cousins

The Washington Redskins will do whatever they can to keep Kirk Cousins on their roster. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Redskins will most likely place the transition tag on Kirk Cousins rather than the Franchise Tag.

The transition tag is a one-year tender offer that is the average of the top 10 salaries at the position. It guarantees the original club the right of first refusal to match any offer the player may receive from another team.

If the Redskins used their exclusive franchise tag, it would act as a one-year tender offer for no less than the average of the top five salaries at the player’s position, or 120 percent of the player’s previous salary, whichever is greater.
