The Redskins proposal to stop using the color rush jerseys for Thursday night games might get tabled until May, team president Bruce Allen said. The Redskins introduced the bylaw change and used two words as the reason why: garish uniforms. But Allen said the league might not vote on the measure in Phoenix this week, instead waiting until meetings in May.

Redskins president Bruce Allen re-iterated Sunday night from Phoenix that the team does not want to trade quarterback Kirk Cousins and still believes it can work out a long-term deal. There have been no new offers in a month, one source said. But Allen pointed to options the team has to keep Cousins around for 2018 as well – the franchise tag at $34.5 million or the transition tag at $28 million. Allen said he would not trade Cousins just to get something in return. If he leaves via free agency after 2018, then the Redskins would only receive a third-round compensatory pick.
