Kirk Cousins ready to start, open to offseason trade

The Washington Redskins figure to seek offers on backup quarterback Kirk Cousins this offseason.

Cousins, 25, appeared in parts of five games in 2013 completing 52.3 percent of his passes for 854 yards with four touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Cousins believes he is ready to become a full-time starter.

This idea and the recent declaration that Robert Griffin III would be the starter when Jay Gruden was hired as head coach would suggest that a trade could be in the making.

Some will speculate the Cleveland Browns being a possible destination since former Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has landed there. The Browns have the fourth and 26th draft picks in the 2014 NFL Draft and should draft their future quarterback in the draft.
