While Cousins wants a chance to play, he later clarified that he didn't demand anything: "I want to come out and say I loved Washington ... I don't demand anything. I'm under contract, I'll honor that contract," he said per CSN Washington.
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.
The Redskins' prospects for trading Cousins have dwindled with nearly every start over the past two seasons. The 26-year-old has some NFL tools, but his pocket presence and decision-making would need a major makeover if any team is willing to part with even a late-round pick for him.
Cousins wasn't even the backup when McCoy and Griffin were both healthy late in the season.
