Seriously. The president of the team can't get the quarterback's name right.

If the team can't get Cousins to sign, he will play for the team on under a franchise tag for the second straight season, costing the team $23.94 million.

Kirk has made it clear that he prefers to play on a year-to-year basis.

"While we would have liked to work out a long-term contract before this season, we accept his decision", Allen said.

Cousins didn't get a long-term deal from the team before Monday's deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign extensions. Cousins will early $23.943 million guaranteed this season after pocketing $19.953 on the franchise tag last season. The Vikings do seem as a bit of an odd choice for Cousins to settle on, but Graziano provided his reasoning for them being on this list. That's only $400,000 less than the guaranteed money the Redskins offered him.

Are the Redskins really going to tag him a third time at a cost of almost $35.5 million? The Redskins are going to have to pony up and pay Cousins at least $25 million per year if they want to keep him, provided that he does not regress in 2017. How do I know this?

Cousins will also have to perform this season with an entirely new set of wide receivers and a new offensive coordinator, Matt Cavanaugh, who replaces quarterback guru Sean McVay. Allen grew up outside of Virginia.

Whether you believe Cousins is worth $20M, or $25M, or even $30M a year, there are teams out there who do. The Washington Redskins have failed to sign their starting quarterback to a long-term deal. If that's the case, the team could spend big on other areas of the roster that need strengthening around Hoyer or Beathard - which in turn might make them more effective. But that would be an expensive proposition.

Washington will an opportunity to tag Cousins for a third season in 2018-2019 for approximately $35 million or transition tag him for about $28 million once beginning. If he leaves as a free agent, they'd receive a compensatory pick in 2019.

Johnson ($16.74 million) signed his one-year tender, but Bell has not.

As you can see, Allen said the Redskins offered Cousins an enormous amount of guaranteed money and to chance to be the second-highest paid player in the league, behind only Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.

Prepare yourself for "Kirk Cousins Watch" throughout the 2017 season.

Allen would go on to make the mistake several more times throughout the video, as you can see below. He led the National Football League by completing 69.8 percent of his throws during his first full season as the starter in 2015, and a year ago he was 83 yards shy of the 5,000-yard mark. It marked the first time since 1996 and '97 that the franchise managed consecutive winning campaigns.

NHL: Defenseman Brian Campbell is retiring at age 38 after playing 17 NHL seasons and winning the Stanley Cup with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. There are millions of Redskins fans around the country, and only dozens are upset enough to take the team's word and go smear the QB's social media accounts. In three of their last six games, he finished with a passer rating of less than 79.

Another deadline has passed in the Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins saga.

Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford is also eyeing a huge contract extension as he is playing out the final year of his five-year, $76.5 million contract.

Just over 3,000 miles from Washington sits his former coach, Kyle Shanahan, who has taken over hapless San Francisco.
