I doubt Kirk would want to go to SF or most or any of the other teams that might want him.
SF and most of the others are rebuilding, and some, like Kyle and Sean are 1st year head coaches, and unproven.
Skins are closer to competing than most or all of those. Gruden has proven he can win, with 2 straight winning seasons. Plus Kirk likes Gruden. Cousin's cousin now plays baseball in DC. They just had a baby which would make it harder to relocate. So, from many angles, it doesn't look very attractive to relocate to those cities/teams.

I am surprised so many in this thread seem to think it was a good or even fair offer at this point? Now if he goes out this year and completely lays an egg, different story. But if he has another year like the last two he will command more than $28M guaranteed for 4 years which is what that offer was for after taking away the guaranteed money the Redskins already owe him by placing the franchise tag on him again. It would of made zero sense for him to take that offer. Good chance even if he has a down year this year, he still gets that or more in the form of a guarantee from someone next year.

Should Allen go through with another tag next year that is the absolute minimum he will get for another year under a transition tag, and he will get more should the Redskins be so stupid as to place another franchise tag on him.

There is one thing that will make him relocate - Ka-ching!
