Redskins owner Dan Snyder has entirely too much time on his hands.

In response to one Washington Redskins fan's pain over losing quarterback Kirk Cousins, Snyder sent him a signed photograph in the mail. 

Per Scott Allen of the Washington PostMatt Fraedrich sent Snyder an email in December imploring the Redskins owner to re-sign Cousins:

“Please be very deliberate about the decisions that are made behind closed doors. Please be shrewd and brilliant. Please do everything in your power to lay the groundwork for a Redskins dynasty that will bring joy to the fans and the city for years to come. In my opinion, the first step to achieving that dream is this: Please give Kirk Cousins a long-term deal that makes him happy to be Redskin, even if that means making him the highest-paid player in NFL history. Thank you.”

Five months later, FedEx dropped off a package at Fraedrich's house that included the picture of Snyder in a suit with "HTTR!" written across the top. 

Meanwhile, Cousins is preparing to take over as the Minnesota Vikings' starting quarterback after agreeing to a three-year deal with the team in March. 

Washington isn't completely starting over, as it acquired Alex Smith in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs to replace Cousins for the 2018 season.
