Why did the Redskins include Kendall Fuller in t (2nd Feb 18 at 9:35am UTC)Quote Reply

how about we throw in Fuller? The Chiefs wanted him,Why did the Redskins include Kendall Fuller in the trade? Because it was the only way the deal was going to get done. It's not like the Redskins said, the Redskins wanted Smith and that was the deal to which the parties agreed. It's that simple., hey

they did not want to give Smith a contract extension of that length. They viewed Smith as more of a short-term fix to bridge the gap until the quarterback they plan to take in this year's draft is ready. But Smith was not interested in that role,-The four-year, preferring to go somewhere that was committed to him for at least the next three or four years. The Chiefs accommodated him and now he will we wearing burgundy and gold this fall., $94 million contract extension the Redskins will give Smith once the deal is finalized on March 14 also was needed to get the deal done. The Browns reportedly offered one of their second-round picks in exchange for Smith. However

-Another reason why the Redskins had to make this trade was due to their unwillingness to face the strong possibility that Cousins was not going to sign a long-term deal. They should have known this since they put the franchise tag on him prior to the 2016 season. The only backup plan they came up with was 2016 sixth-round pick Nate Sudfeld, you could argue that they should have started to plan for the future in 2014 when the future of Robert Griffin III started to turn cloudy. But they didn't look to draft any insurance and they paid the price for being in a position of desperation., who didn't impress anyone enough to earn a second season. The smart way to handle the situation would have been to spend a mid-round pick on a quarterback to develop. Had they done that they might not have been such a desperate situation with only Colt McCoy under contract. In fact

with several promising quarterbacks entering the NFL draft and after Jimmy Garoppolo was dealt from the New England Patriots to the San Francisco 49ers.,It was a poorly kept secret that there would be major quarterback shakeups in 2018

when Alex Smith was reportedly traded by the Kansas City Chiefs to the Washington Redskins for a third-round pick and cornerback Kendall Fuller. The deal opens up the Chiefs to start former first-round pick Patrick Mahomes II next season after his impressive performances in the preseason.,The next shoe dropped Tuesday

but the 29-year-old's next team will likely make him the league's highest-paid player.,The deal also means that Kirk Cousins almost certainly will be moving on from Washington. Potential landing spots for Cousins won't have to now surrender a lot of cap space had he received the franchise or transition tag

The teams that were previously linked to Cousins may be in a tight battle to sign the veteran as he moves on from the nation's capital after March 6.

There is a good chance that Cousins ends up in Buffalo since the Bills have roughly $30 million in cap space and a hole at quarterback. Yet it's possible the Bills, consider moving up in the draft to land a quarterback. , who have the No. 21 and No. 22 overall picks

they can use the picks to bolster the rest of their offense.,Expect the Bills to at least make some type of push for Cousins. If they somehow get him

The Kansas City Chiefs’ decision to move on from the Alex Smith era this week, will send ripples across the N.F.L. throughout this off-season., by trading the quarterback to the Washington Redskins

In return for Smith, according to multiple news media reports., the Chiefs received a third-round pick and the third-year cornerback Kendall Fuller

But beyond those immediately affected, as well as any team trying to make a change at football’s most vital position., the deal will have ramifications for virtually every quarterback seeking a new team or a revamped contract

the move was straightforward. Smith went 50-26 in his five seasons with the team, he has a very limited chance of significant improvement., made three Pro Bowls, at 33,For the Chiefs, and was at his best early in the 2017 season. But he was 1-4 in the playoffs,Womens Shaquill Griffin Jersey, and

Mahomes’s professional experience is fairly limited, the big-armed Mahomes connected with Demetrius Harris on a 51-yard pass., but in Week 17 he completed 22 of 35 passes for 284 yards against the Denver Broncos. In what the Chiefs are hoping is a sign of things to come

will join a secondary in need of a playmaker., but the general belief is that he offers more explosiveness,Authentic Nazair Jones Jersey, which could be a strong combination with Kareem Hunt,Mahomes most likely will not match Smith’s regular season success initially,Womens Germain Ifedi Jersey, a promising young cornerback, who led the N.F.L. in rushing as a rookie in 2017. And Fuller

Cousins had a combined record of 24-23-1 and led Washington to the playoffs once.,For the Redskins,Womens Tyler Lockett Jersey, who reportedly have agreed to a four-year contract extension with Smith, but he has been much more inconsistent over his three seasons as a full-time starter. In that time, the move saves money. Cousins would have cost more than $34 million next season if the team used the franchise tag on him again. The deal also promises at least a mild upgrade on the field in the short term. Cousins is four years younger than Smith and has a stronger arm

Denver,Where things get truly interesting is what happens to Cousins, Arizona and Buffalo. Cleveland and the Jets will most likely be in the market for a free-agent quarterback as well., Case Keenum and any other quarterback who ends up entering free agency. The list of teams that believe they are a quarterback away from being regular contenders includes Minnesota

and will presumably receive the long-term deal that he sought in Washington. Keenum would probably be the second choice among teams that would rather sign a known entity than pursue a quarterback in the draft.,Cousins will get his choice of destinations

It is only then, that players like Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers will look at how things went and decide just how much they are going to demand from their teams in renegotiations., Authentic Delano Hill Jersey,after the trade is completed and Cousins and Keenum sign

And all of that comes, as a result of the Chiefs wanting to switch to Mahomes from Smith., essentially

Kirk Cousins made the rounds on Radio Row in Minneapolis on Tuesday ahead of Super Bowl LII and, Cousins was asked about former Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan’s recent assessment of him., in addition to answering the same questions about his uncertain future the same way he has for the past two-plus years

we were still building a roster around him to make him special.”,As a refresher, McCloughan told a Denver radio program earlier this month of Cousins, “He’s a good player. Is he special? I don’t see special. But also, who could become the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL this offseason

Cousins told NBC Sports Radio’s Mike Florio and Chris Simms that he’s “learned to ignore the noise,” and that McCloughan’s comments weren’t a surprise.,” that “there’s no reason to lose sleep or to waste energy worrying about someone else’s opinion

he’s never told me something else,” Cousins said. “That’s what I love about Scot. He’s consistent with the message and going back to 2015, but I respect Scot quite a bit, we want you here for the next 10 years, and I think when we said we’d like to play out the season and see what happens and the price went up, that I want to build the team around you, you’re my guy, but at the same time, he can do that. He’s also said on other occasions that they probably made a mistake in that regard,“What he’s saying there, I don’t want to overpay. That was his approach and I appreciated his honesty. He told it straight to my face and didn’t leave any gray area, he didn’t want to do it. That’s his prerogative, he basically told me the same thing, so it goes both ways,Authentic Shaquill Griffin Jersey, I enjoyed working with him and he’s entitled to his opinion. He’s certainly a respected man around the league when it comes to talent evaluation.”

Cousins’s comments came one day after former Redskins coach Mike Shanahan,Womens Delano Hill Jersey, told the New York Daily News he disagreed with McCloughan’s assessment., the man responsible for Washington drafting Cousins in 2012

since he’s been there. You can’t always do it by yourself. You got to have an offense and a defense for a quarterback to be really successful … especially when you get in the playoffs. But I guarantee you he’s a special guy.”,“There’s no question in my mind that he’s a special player,Womens Nazair Jones Jersey,” Shanahan said of Cousins. “If you don’t think he’s a special player, I don’t think, that means you don’t watch him practice very often. You take a look at some of the games he’s played in. He hasn’t played with a good defense that’s been in the upper half of the league

except perhaps Cousins’s dad,” Shanahan said in December 2016.,Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey, is higher on Cousins than Shanahan,” Shanahan said in March 2016. “There’s no question he is a franchise guy,No one, who has compared the Redskins’ quarterback with former pupils John Elway and Steve Young. “The sky is the limit,Authentic Germain Ifedi Jersey,” Shanahan said in September 2015. “He will be a guy that can win you Super Bowls
