Washington Redskins back up quarterback Kirk Cousins’ future in the NFL has been the subject of a lot of offseason discussion. Does he want to be traded, will be be traded, what is going to happen?

Well Cousins is addressing it and not really giving an answer, basically toeing the line and standing with one foot on each side of the fence.

I feel it’s a win-win for me,” Cousins said. “If I were to get traded and get an opportunity to start somewhere, that’d be a great thing for me. But if I’m back with the Redskins, I enjoy it in D.C., I enjoy the fan base and the organization and I love my teammates.”

Cousins got to start three games at the end of the year for when they rested Robert Griffin III, and he enjoyed the opportunity.

“I feel good about it,” Cousins said. “More than anything, it gave me confidence that I can play at this level, and I gained a lot of experience, and I got better. That’s all I was hoping for.”
