Giants' Rolle: Redskins' Kirk Cousins could start for several NFL teams

Monday September 22nd, 2014

New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle said Monday on WFAN that he could see Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins "starting for several teams right now."

Cousins replaced Robert Griffin III after the quarterback dislocated his ankle in Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In two games, Cousins has a passer rating of 105.8, and has thrown for 677 yards and five touchdowns. He has thrown one interception.

Last week there were reports that head coach Jay Gruden prefers Cousins over Griffin. That same day, Cousins said the Redskins were RGIII's team.

On Sept. 17, Gruden said Griffin would be in a cast for 10 days and then be re-evaluated by the team's medical staff.

The Redskins drafted Cousins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL draft.
