NFL Trade Rumors: Jay Gruden says no one is calling about Kirk Cousins


After appearing as though he’d be traded by this time in the offseason not too long ago, quarterback Kirk Cousins remains with the Washington Redskins and it looks like that will stay the case through the 2014 season.

According to John Keim, new Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says that no one is calling about a Kirk Cousins trade and that means things are remaining the same in Washington.

 

Just like the Josh McCown-Jay Cutler situation in Chicago last year, many believe that Cousins could replace Robert Griffin III in the near future. While the more realistic reason to keep Cousins is for injury insurance for RGIII, we haven’t seen the quarterback market light up this offseason the way it was projected to back when the Cousins trade rumors started.

He’s not going to be traded, and the only people calling about Cousins seem to be reporters and not teams interested in acquiring him.
