Despite conflicting reports over the past couple weeks, Kirk Cousins will be staying in the nation’s capital for now.

While the Redskins could trade Cousins, the options have dwindled down. Due to Cousins ties with new San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, the Niners may be an option.
Washington and Cousins have until July 15 to reach a long-term deal.
