According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the team's front office hasn't spoken to the quarterback since the season ended.
Cousins has started every game for the Redskins over the past three years, leading the team to a 24-23-1 regular-season record in this span.
However, the two sides were never able to agree to a long-term extension after using the franchise tag in each of the last two years. Team president Bruce Allen blamed Cousins for the lack of an agreement last July, saying he turned down $53 million in guaranteed money.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports broke down how things ended up for Cousins:
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the Redskins agreed to a four-year extension with Smith worth $23.5 million per season, including $70 million in guarantees. Considering a transition tag on Cousins would have cost more than $28 million in 2018, adding Smith is a bit cheaper while locking him up for a longer term.
Meanwhile, Cousins finally gets a chance to test the open market in free agency for the first time in his career.
