Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins can become a free agent after this season, but where he’ll end up is anyone’s guess at this point.
Cousins has started 18 games in his NFL career including all nine so far this season. Coach Jay Gruden seems interested in keeping the quarterback, but according to the Washington Post, an extension has not yet been discussed.
“Obviously, Kirk’s a guy we’d like to keep around, no doubt,” Gruden said, via ESPN. “But that’ll be up to [general manager Scot McCloughan] and Kirk’s agent and Kirk.”
Cousins may be one of the best QBs available in free agency in 2016. He has a combined passer rating of 117.1 in the past three matches and just had his best game, completing 20 of 25 for 324 yards and four touchdowns in the 47-14 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
Who would have thought that Cousins’ would turn out to be so valuable? A month ago, he was throwing interceptions left and right. As a matter of fact, Mike Shanahan did. Back in August, he said that Cousins would be a top ten quarterback “no doubt about it.”
Funny how that works.
