Sign me the heck up for his addition if he's still into football/can be into football down the road. He should've been on the team from the get go!

Kirk Cousins - QB - Redskins

Team president Bruce Allen said the Redskins would be willing to place the franchise tag on Kirk Cousins next offseason.

"Yes," Allen said when asked directly about tagging Cousins for the third year in a row. "In the collective bargaining agreement, we really have one year and an option that we can do at the end of next season if we don’t get a contract." Tagging a player three years in a row is intentionally cost prohibitive, and Cousins would be due $34 million if Washington tags him again next spring. The Redskins have other options, however, including the transition tag ($28 million) and non-exclusive franchise tag which would both offer the right of first refusal if Cousins signs an offer sheet somewhere else. Of course, all of this madness could be avoided if Washington matches Cousins' contract demands by the July 15 deadline, but that is unlikely at this point.

The 49ers’ classic, understated uniforms never looked quite right when the jerseys were tailored with pads because the stripes would be stretched downward and cut off.


That's what made it :onfire:
I liked the slanted look, even though it sounded as though it wasn't intended to look that way.

I never thought highly of him as a prospect. Never liked him and was so surprised that Ozzie selected him that high. I also thought Courtney Upshaw was a bad pick, too high for my liking:

Matt Elam - DB - Free Agent

Former Ravens draft bust Matt Elam was arrested for grand theft and battery in Delray Beach, Florida on Monday morning.

It's his second arrest since February, when Elam was popped for allegedly possessing 126 grams of marijuana and three grams of oxycodone. Elam is being held on $4,500 bond. Elam, 25, has played his final NFL snap. The worst pick of Ozzie Newsome's tenure, Elam was drafted 32nd overall in 2013.

So this essentially allows players to get a longer look in camp who otherwise would have been cut much earlier in the process?

Bills also signed former Niner/Raider/etc. WR Rod Streater to take his roster spot, too.
