NFC Notes: Bears, Cardinals, Cowboys, Redskins



New Bears K Roberto Aguayo says he’s embracing the competition with veteran Connor Barth in the coming weeks and the new opportunity with Chicago.

“You got to embrace it,” Aguayo said, via “When I got the call I knew he was here, but at the end of the day this is our job and things are going to happen. It is what it is. It’s out of our control. He’s a good guy, and I’m just going to embrace it and be cordial out here. He’s a good guy. All these guys are good people that I’ve met out here. I’m excited to be here and get to work.”

Redskins franchise QB Kirk Cousins tells Sal Paolantonio that he plans to remain with the team for the rest of his career.

Redskins senior VP of personnel Doug Williams recently explained that the key for Cousins this season is elevating the team to the next level.

“Everybody knows that Kirk can play this game,” Williams said, via John Keim of ESPN. “He’s proved that he can play it, and I think the key here is taking us to the next level. And he understands that the next level is important, not only to the team but also to himself, too.”

“Number one, nobody is more confident than Kirk Cousins. I think even from the fact that he decided to play on the tag, he’s confident in himself,” Williams said. “He knows what he’s done the last two years. And the way I look at that, I don’t think he’s going to do no worse this year than what he did the last two years because the offense is what he’s played in for the last two years. He’s got a good rapport with the head coach [and] the quarterbacks coach. And Kirk is not a guy that is hard to get along with. The players like him. … That’s what it’s all about; it’s about leadership.
