Kirk Cousins agreeing to a long-term deal by Monday afternoon's deadline is continuing to look unlikely. 

The most recent sign comes from ESPN's Adam Schefter, who reported that a deal is unlikely to take place by 4 p.m. tomorrow.

While not a surprise, an interesting bit of the story - which you can find here - is Schefter's intel about how negotiations are progressing: 

"There has been a positive, constructive tone to recent contract talks, per sources," he says. "However, Cousins prefers to wait to do a deal at this time, just as the Redskins preferred to wait to do a deal at this time last year."
