NFL Rumors: Redskins not trading back-up Kirk Cousins?


The Washington Redskins are coming off a terrible season after winning the division with a record of 10-6, allowing them to win the division for the first time since 1999. They lost in the NFC Divisional round that year with the same record.

Now back-up quarterback Kirk Cousins has had his name thrown into the rumor mill over the last couple of weeks as the off-season continues to move forward. Cousins appears to be happy in Washington but could be open to a trade as fellow FanSided editor Josh Hill reported back in February.

Other things related to a Kirk Cousins trade have been thrown over, including the team possibly being interested in a second round draft pick in return for the back-up quarterback.

But according to Adam Schefter, who appeared on the Ross Tucker Podcast, says he was informed by two sources that told him the team has no plans in trading Kirk Cousins.

Right now quarterbacks like Michael Vick and Matt Cassel will be floating around in the market for teams to sign. If they’re unwilling to pay two seasoned veterans, then they could either draft a quarterback and roll with then, or make an offer that the Redskins can’t refuse for Kirk Cousins.
