Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins reportedly rejected a five-year offer from the team in May, and the two sides have not made substantial progress on contract talks since.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported the two sides have been resigned to Cousins' playing under the franchise tag in 2017 since spring. The Pro Bowler will be forced to play for the $23.9 million tag if he does not agree to a long-term contract by Monday.

It will be the second straight season he's been Washington's franchise player.
