Kirk Cousins' contract situation continues to take odd twists. For two seasons, the Redskins have been unable to agree to a long-term deal with their quarterback, and now, CSN's Chick Hernandez reports that Cousins will not negotiate with the current Washington power structure.

Cousins' stance comes on the same day the passer signed his one-year franchise tender. The deal will pay Cousins $24 million for his services in 2017, but also opens the door for the team to trade the quarterback.

San Francisco has long been reportedly interested in Cousins, and the 49ers are in the process of a total organization rebuild.

It seems unlikely that Cousins' position on Allen will cause the ouster of the team president. Allen and owner Dan Snyder are close, and Allen has a distinguished family history with the team as his father was a coach of the 'Skins in the 1970s.
