NORFOLK, Va. – With less than a month until the deadline for the Redskins to reach a long-term deal with quarterback Kirk Cousins, CBS NFL Insider Jason La Canfora puts the odds of a deal at 80 percent.

La Canfora goes on to write, “For as much as Cousins can reasonably talk about $25M a year, he and his representatives are smart, savvy people, and if it ends up being $23M a year and four seasons are in essence guaranteed by the salary structure, that’s a major win for the former fourth round pick. I don’t see this falling apart. There’s just too much at stake for both sides.”
