Washington QB Kirk Cousins is reportedly looking to get out of town if he is not given a chance to start in 2015.
“Isn’t it obvious I couldn’t stay here?” Cousins said.
Cousins told the media that if there is no quarterback competition,there is no point to staying in Washington. He added that he would approach the season as 16 games until free agency if RGIII is made the starter.
Cousins started five games this season after RGIII was injured before being replaced by Colt McCoy. In his six appearances this year, Cousins completed 61.8 percent of his 204 passing attempts for 1,710 yards, 10 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He lost four straight starts before being replaced at halftime of Week 7.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport noted that the Cleveland Browns had expressed interest in Cousins in the past. Cousins’ familiarity with coordinator Kyle Shanahan would make sense if those dots were connected again, given the questions of the Browns’ QB situation.
Cousins wasn’t given the backup role when McCoy and Griffin were both healthy late in the season.
