Kirk Cousins QB WAS 1 Day

With Robert Griffin having dislocated his left ankle Sunday, Cousins is slated to handle Washington's QB duties in the coming weeks, the Washington Post reports.

At this point, the main variable is how long the injury will keep Griffin out, with tests Monday on tap to get a better idea on that front. In any case, Cousins merits a pickup for those looking looking to bolster their QB situations, and of course, represents a priority add for those who roster Griffin.

Cousins came on for an injured Robert Griffin (ankle) in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars and completed 22-of-33 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.

Cousins completed passes to seven different receivers and led the Redskins to a big 41-10 victory despite also losing wide receiver DeSean Jackson to a shoulder injury. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport is reporting that Griffin may have suffered a dislocated ankle, which would leave Cousins as the starting quarterback for potentially the rest of the season.

Redskins GM Bruce Allen confirms he "never came close" to dealing No. 2 QB Kirk Cousins during the draft.

That's because Cousins isn't worth more than a day-three pick. At that price, the Redskins are much better of keeping a player who's attempted 203 passes in two years behind Robert Griffin III. Cousins is not a commodity. Perhaps Twitter will begin to realize that.

A source tells the Washington Post that Kirk Cousins has drawn recent interest from "several teams."

The report states the Redskins continue to want at least a second-rounder in exchange for Cousins. If that's true, we'd be stunned if he isn't still a Redskin come Monday. In eight career NFL appearances, Cousins has posted a 56.2 completion percentage wtih eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He's 1-3 as a starter.

An NFL executive told ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim that Kirk Cousins "at most" is worth a third-round pick.

Speculation of a Cousins-to-Cleveland trade hasn't gone away deep into the pre-draft process, and may continue into Thursday based on Cousins' history with new Browns OC Kyle Shanahan. The most likely outcome remains Cousins toting the clipboard for at least one more year behind Robert Griffin III in D.C. There are more and more signs pointing to the Browns drafting a quarterback high.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer suggests the Browns could target Kirk Cousins in a draft-day trade.

"It's all on the table and it should be an exciting three days. It might even include trade discussions for Kirk Cousins," writes beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot. The Browns have ten picks in the upcoming draft, while the Redskins are without a first-rounder and may be looking for additional selections in what is widely considered the deepest draft in recent memory. The Redskins are reportedly seeking a second-round pick for Cousins. That's not going to happen. We bet they'd take a third-rounder.

Coach Jay Gruden said the Redskins haven't heard from any teams regarding a Kirk Cousins trade.

Once the Redskins put it out there that they wanted a second-round pick in exchange for Cousins, the rumors predictably died out. The third-year man is not going anywhere despite his offseason campaign. "You need two great quarterbacks," Gruden said. "The way Robert plays, you never know what can happen."

ESPN's Adam Schefter stated on the Ross Tucker Podcast that two informed sources have told him the Redskins will not trade Kirk Cousins.

Schefter recently tweeted Cousins "is not going anywhere." Stated Schefter on Tucker's podcast, "Somebody told me not even with an ounce of hesitation that basically there's no way they're trading Kirk Cousins. ... And then, there was somebody else that I spoke to, who basically said 'that's exactly right. Not happening.'" Per Schefter, "Nobody's made an offer for Kirk Cousins, to my knowledge. They're not interested in listening to offers for Kirk Cousins. It's not gonna happen. That's why I tweeted he's not going anywhere."

Kirk Cousins again stated his desire to be a starter.

This story just won't die. Cousins is like just about every other NFL backup in that he wants to get on the field consistently and prove to the world he's a difference-maker. But he's entering the third year of a four-year contract and the Redskins reportedly want a second-round pick in exchange for their RG3 insurance plan. It's not going to happen, meaning Cousins needs to accept his role in Washington and not be a distraction.
