“It’s Kirk’s team.”
With those words from Jay Gruden, the Kirk Cousins era officially got underway on Monday afternoon.
“It’s just one step in the process,” said Cousins.
Mike Shanahan's decision to draft Kirk Cousins just three rounds after taking Robert Griffin III in the 2012 NFL Draft was one that had people asking questions almost immediately.
Players in the Redskins’ locker room did not sound as though they were surprised by Monday’s big quarterback news.
The Redskins and Robert Griffin III have had a long, complicated relationship filled with tremendous highlights and gut-wrenching lowlights.
Jay Gruden has confirmed that Kirk Cousins will be the starter at quarterback for the 2015 season.
“It’s Kirk’s team,” he said, saying that Cousins has the best chance to win.
