QB Kirk Cousins gets exclusive franchise tag from Redskins

WASHINGTON (AP) In a move that seemed the most likely at this point in the odd dance between Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins, the team placed the exclusive franchise tag on the starting quarterback on Tuesday.

The Redskins announced the news one day before the deadline for assigning tags to players.

Nearly a half-hour before the club itself sent out a news release about the move, Cousins' agent Mike McCartney tweeted about it, and Cousins wrote on the social media site: "Tag! I'm it!"
