East Notes: RGIII, Cousins, Jets, Bills, Eagles

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III made it through the 2015 season healthy, which means his 2016 salary – currently guaranteed for injury only – won’t become fully guaranteed. As such, it’s probably just a matter of time until the team releases the former second overall pick, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets and Jason Reid of ESPN.com writes.

The RGIII era in Washington is set to come to an end, having overlapped with the start of the Kirk Cousins era, and it remains to be seen what sort of long-term future Cousins has in Washington. For now though, all signs (and reports) point to the club aiming to lock up its new starting quarterback via a multiyear contract or the franchise tag this offseason.

Following Washington’s Wild Card loss to the Packers, Cousins was asked about his future and replied, “I want to be where I am wanted,” per John Keim of ESPN.com. For now, that will almost certainly mean staying in D.C.

    If RG3 is willing to sign as a backup somewhere, the Bills should take a run at him. Taylor only has 1 year left on his contract, so this would give them some leverage in his negotiations. If they can Taylor signed to around 4 yrs at $50 mill extension fine, if not you would have RG3 who fits the system with a year to have grasped it.
