Quarterback Kirk Cousins is preparing himself to take over as the Washington Redskins’ offensive leader with Robert Griffin III out for the entire offseason.
“Now, in terms of my presence in the locker room and that kind of a thing, I’ll probably try to be a little more vocal so that I don’t come across to my teammates as somebody who’s afraid of that role or not comfortable in that role,” Cousins said, per The Washington Times. “It’ll be an interesting balance to have to walk because obviously I don’t want to step on anybody’s toes, but I also need to be ready if called upon.”
Cousins understands that you never know what will happen in the NFL.
“Any time you can have a good idea of what’s coming, it’s going to help,” he said. “But the reality of my situation – and really the reality of the NFL, in general – is you don’t know what’s coming next. You don’t know what’s around the corner. To think that it’s always going to be planned out for you is naive and foolish.

Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher took to Twitter to send a succinct message about what he thinks Cowboys fans living in D.C. should do.
The Washington Redskins will have to approach acquisitions with care as they enter the second offseason of their two-year, $36 million cap reduction imposed by the league.
