  • Total revenue: $441.4 million (8 percent increase)
  • Profit: $65.4 million (9.7 percent decrease)
  • Net income: $72.8 million

Redskins

Ian Rapoport tells JP Finlay of CSN Mid-Atlantic that he thinks QB Kirk Cousins would be “very happy” to be in Washington long term if the Redskins were willing to pay him what he feels he’s worth.

“If they pay him what he’s worth, I would imagine that he would be very happy to be there,” Rapoport said.

Rapoport added that while Cousins may be frustrated with how this process has played out, it may not matter in the end if they can reach an agreement on his value.

Now, is Cousins frustrated by why he doesn’t already have a long-term extension? I’m sure he is. I would be, too” Rapoport said. “But I don’t think any of that matters as much as strictly the numbers, because if you get a long-term contract, all of that fades away very, very quickly, and we’ve seen it over and over and over in the NFL.”
