Redskins

In two straight seasons, Kirk Cousins has broken Redskins' passing yards franchise records. In 2016, Cousins nearly got to 5,000 passing yards, and it appears the rest of the NFL is taking notice. 

While it's fun news for Redskins fans to see their quarterback rank ahead of Chiefs QB Alex Smith and Chargers QB Philip Rivers, the tough reality for Washington is that Cousins is only signed for the 2017 season.

In 2016, Cousins played on the franchise tag. It sure looks like 2017 is headed the same way, unless the Redskins front office can get a deal done with the Cousins camp before the July 15th contract deadline. 

The NFL Network top 100 players are determined by NFL players, and Cousins moved up to No. 70 this year after ranking 85th in 2016.
