Redskins GM expects Kirk Cousins to remain with team in 2014

Despite rumors of a trade, Washington Redskins general manager Bruce Allen told the Washington Times that he expects back-up quarterback Kirk Cousins to remain with the team in 2014.

ESPN previously reported that Cousins had requested a trade after new Redskins head coach declared Robert Griffin III the starting quarterback. That’s not the case according to Allen.

“There’s no change from our perspective on Kirk,” Allen said. “That’s it. We’re comfortable with Kirk.”

Cousins appeared in five games last season, starting the final three after Mike Shanahan benched Robert Griffin III.
