Report: Redskins have no interest in trading Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins

The Washington Redskins “have no plans nor interest” in trading quarterback Kirk Cousins, says ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Cousins told the Redskins after the season that he would welcome a trade.

“Nothing changes from the day I was drafted,” said Cousins, a fourth-round pick in 2012. “There’s no chance to compete, so if I can’t get it in D.C., I’d be open to having that chance somewhere else.”

Cousins, 25, is under contract through the 2015 season.

Cousins said new coach Jay Gruden told him Robert Griffin III will be the starter.

“I won’t lose a lot of sleep over the unknowns,” Cousins said. “If it doesn’t present itself, then I enjoyed being part of the Redskins and look forward to being with them. Until I’m told otherwise, I’m a Redskin and I expect to handle the role as No. 2 as best I can.”

Cousins has started four games for Washington and appeared in four others, throwing for 1,320 yards with eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
