Former Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins may have another catchphrase.
The Washington Redskins applied the exclusive franchise tag on the quarterback, prompting the signal-caller to send out a tweet.
“Tag! I’m it!” Cousins wrote on Tuesday.
It’s the second year in a row the Redskins used the tag on Cousins. The tag means Cousins will remain with the Redskins — and follows reports Cousins preferred to be sent to San Francisco if a trade happened.
