The NFL offseason is here, and while teams are scouting players at the combine in Indianapolis, there are some front offices coating other NFL rosters to see if there’s any trade bait they want to go after. While trades are highly uncommon in football, they still happen and Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is the guy right now that everyone is keeping an eye on.

But despite rumors that he’ll go to the Vikings or reunite with Kyle Shanahan in Cleveland, it appears that Cousins is going nowhere this offseason and will remain in Washington through 2014.

This isn’t that crushing of a blow to other teams, as Cousins had a high price on him that not many were likely to meet before the draft. Still, the Redskins clearly like him and Jay Gruden wants a much closer look at his backup.

This doesn’t mean he won’t be traded at some point in 2014, but it just won’t be happening for the time being.
