Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins signed his franchise tender on Friday, reports ESPN.com's Adam Schefter.

Because Cousins signed the franchise-tag tender, worth $23.94 million, he is now eligible to be traded. Cousins reportedly asked owner Redskins Dan Snyder to be traded earlier this week.

Cousins, 28, completed 67% of his passes last season for a franchise record 4,917 yards with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

It was the second straight season that Cousins set the franchise record  for passing yards in a single season. He also received the franchise tag last season and was paid $19.953 million.
