Kirk Cousins: 'Shame on me' if I base life on money

For the fifth year in a row, Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins returned to his hometown of Holland, Michigan for his annual youth football camp. Cousins has $23.94 million in hand for 2017, with the promise of either a 20-percent raise under the transition tag or a 44-percent raise under the franchise tag in 2018 - or a shot at the open market.

"He's been doing it for a long time", Garçon said.

Given that franchise tag talks are generally all about money, this is a curious stance from the fourth-year starter. Kirk's doing very well and his numbers are getting better and better.

Hundreds of campers got valuable life lessons and football skills from Cousins, who's enjoying his off days before the team reports to Richmond for training camp on July 27th. I gotta go play football and throw touchdown passes and help our team win. "And the good news is I'm under contract for this season and in a good place".

Cousins being twice-tagged puts the Redskins to a decision. Cousins also said this offseason he has a responsibility to secure the best possible deal for future quarterbacks, which runs somewhat counter to his most recent remarks on the situation.

"If you don't take a deal that's fair to you, then you're also taking a deal that's not fair to them and you're setting them back as well", Cousins said during a radio interview in January.
