Now, there is still about four days until Monday, July 17, which is the deadline for franchise tagged players to sign a long-term deal with their current clubs, but an agreement between Cousins and the Redskins is far from imminent, more so, unlikely. The one-year tender is worth roughly $23.94 million in fully guaranteed money.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, there is a "strong indication" Cousins will play under the franchise tag for the second consecutive season.

The soon-to-be 29-year-old Cousins was originally selected by the Redskins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Michigan State. Our models project him to throw for 4,728 yards, 26.4 touchdowns and 12.8 interceptions this coming season. With both Cousins and Johnson scheduled to play under one-year deals as a result of their respective franchise tags, the attention will now begin to shift toward the Pittsburgh Steelers and veteran running back Le'Veon Bell.

For his National Football League career, Cousins has produced more than 12,000 passing yards alongside 72 touchdowns while making 46 regular-season appearances.
