Report: Redskins cut off contract talks with Kirk Cousins

The Washington Redskins seemingly found their quarterback for the future this season when Kirk Cousins took over the reigns and led them to the NFC East championship, their first since 2012. He is going to be a free agent this offseason, but it looks like he will be looking for a new home in 2016.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Redskins had cut off all contract negotiations with Cousins on Tuesday. They are not expected to re-sign him for the 2016 season.

Cousins threw for 4,166 yards and 29 touchdowns this season. He helped led the Redskins to four straight wins to close the season 9-7 with division championship.

If Washington isn’t planning on resigning him in 2016, it could lead to a team desperate for a quarterback to signing him instead of looking to the Draft in April.
