Redskins Prefer To Keep QB Kirk Cousins Rather Than Trade Him?


According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Redskins backup QB Kirk Cousins may stay put in Washington, despite the recent reports and rumors that suggested he could be move at some point in the near future.

  • Rapoport mentions that the Redskins may prefer to keep Cousins on their roster as insurance for Robert Griffin III.
  • Rapoport adds that the Browns tried to trade for Cousins back in February, but obviously nothing came of their interest.

Mark Maske of the Washington Post reported on Thursday that “several teams” were showing interest in Cousins

However, Maske adds that remains unclear whether or not these teams are willing to meed the Redskins’ asking price for Cousins.

According to Maske’s source, Washington is “adamant” that they want a second-round pick in return for Cousins. The source added that he’s skeptical that a deal will get done.

Cousins, 25, appeared in five games for the Redskins last year and completed 52.3 percent of his passes for 854 yards, four touchdowns and seven interceptions.

He started Washington’s final three games of the season after the team elected to bench Robert Griffin III, but they wound up losing all three contests.
