The deadline for the Washington Redskins to sign Kirk Cousins to a contract extension before the upcoming season is 1 p.m. Pacific Time this afternoon. According to Adam Schefter, the Redskins are not expected to sign Cousins before the deadline.
Kirk Cousins is not expected to sign a long-term deal by Monday’s deadline, but is open to doing deal with team after season, per source.

UPDATE: The deadline passed without Cousins and Washington agreeing to an extension.
If Cousins becomes a free agent next offseason, do you think the 49ers should sign him and make him the highest paid player in the NFL? Why or why not?
