Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins bet on himself in 2016 and it has paid off — with the respect of his peers.
The Redskins quarterback is still searching for a long-term contract. Cousins played the 2016 season on the franchise tag worth $19.95 million.
After not agreeing to a contract extension, the Redskins tagged Cousins again and he is scheduled to make nearly $24 million this upcoming season.
Cousins threw for a career-high 4,917 yards, 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, meanwhile, was ranked No. 65, jumping up 12 spots from 2016.
