On Thursday, quarterback Derek Carr signed a five-year extension with the Oakland Raiders worth $125 million.
Carr's long-term deal has brought up the question of whether or not the same type of deal can get done between the Redskins and their quarterback Kirk Cousins.
To give some answers to what's been a looming question for the Redskins since the start of the offseason is former Redskins GM Charley Casserly, a man whose made a living off of making deals.
Friday on the Sports Junkies, Casserly broke down what the Redskins would have to offer Cousins based off of what other QB's have been offered.
Spoiler alert, it doesn't look good.

"I don't see any way this thing ever gets done," Casserly told the Junkies.
Casserly feels that Cousins may not even want to work on a long-term deal until 2018 when he can test the open market. With that being said, Cousins already has $24 million in the bank, so if the Redskins want him to stay off the market they need to show him the money.
"Put the numbers on paper, and show the deal that you think Cousins is gonna accept, and that's what I did," Casserly said. "I don't know Cousins will accept it, but I know how that side would think it this situation."
Forgetting what Cousins is getting paid in 2017, Casserly sees Cousins wanting $23 million over four years with a minimum of three years guaranteed, equaling $69 million. This staggering number is just to keep Cousins a Redskin for a few more years.
Then, when you add the $24 million he is making in 2017 to the $69 million he may ask for to keep him out of free agency in 2018, the grand total is $93 million over five years.
Upon coming up with that number, Casserly said what we all were thinking.
"That number just blows people away. Nobody's gonna do that."
