Washington Redskins back up quarterback Kirk Cousins told the Washington Times that he wants to get better at running the read-option this offseason. “A guy like me, I need to be much more perfect in my ball-handling and in my reads for it to work than maybe a Robert or a Pat White has to be,” Cousins said on 980. “Now that being said, I didn’t have any reps in college with those plays, and so my ability to be more perfect is not there, whereas Robert had all these reps in college working on these plays. And so it just became a deal where I’m not comfortable running those plays at this current time last season. “But with OTAs and minicamps and training camp, I believe that if the coaches want me to, I can gain a comfort levels with these plays, where I can be fast enough to have them be effective. And once at least there’s a threat of those plays being run with me in the game, it does change a lot of things for a defensive coordinator. “And so it’s worth it to explore what it would ...

Kirk Cousins trade rumors ramping up

Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins had an impressive 2012 rookie campaign as Robert Griffin III’s backup, but he may not be a Redskin for much longer. The recent signings of Rex Grossman and Pat White spell a Kirk Cousins trade coming before the draft. This shouldn’t be new information to most because Cousins was already designated trade bait after his impressive...

Redskins bring back Rex Grossman for another year

According to ProFootballtalk.com, the Washington Redskins are bringing back quarterback Rex Grossman for at least one more year.

Pat White Signs With Redskins, Drops Concussion Lawsuit Against NFL

Former Dolphins second round pick Pat White is banking on his skills as a quarterback, because if the NFL ever settles their concussion lawsuit for a large sum of money, White will get none of it.

Push to change the Washington Redskins name continues, again

I am not a fan of the Washington Redskins or owner Daniel Snyder, but I have to applaud his resolve. For several years now, the Redskins franchise has been under attack by groups demanding that the club change the team name.

Report: Redskins Re-Sign QB Rex Grossman

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Redskins have re-signed QB Rex Grossman. This is a somewhat surprising move given that they just signed Pat White to a one-year deal and already have Kirk Cousins firmly entrenched as Robert Griffin III‘s backup. On top of that, Washington has very limited cap space and is believed to still have interest in free agent CB Antoine Winfield...

In depth 2013: Washington Redskins

On the first drive of the 2012 season for Washington, Robert Griffin III faced pressure in the pocket, stayed calm, took a hit and completed an 88-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon en route to a 40-32 upset of New Orleans. The Redskins paid a huge price in draft picks when they moved up to select Griffin, but the 2011 Heisman Trophy winner paid immediate dividends, taking the Redskins...

Grossman agrees to 1-yr deal to return to Redskins

Rex Grossman has agreed to a one-year deal to return to the Washington Redskins.
