Position statement: Redskins can’t trade a QB

Shutdown Corner

At first, we believed the Redskins were foolish for selecting Kirk Cousins in the fourth round of the 2012 draft after making Robert Griffin III their top choice in the same year. Now, after RGIII has proven he isn't immune to injury, we praise Washington for holding on to their capable backup. Moving forward, Mike Florio says the smartest thing this organization can do is keep Cousins exactly where he's located on the bench behind Griffin. Until we know RGIII can stay healthy, Cousins holds a vital position on this team.
