ASHBURN — Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has navigated his contract situation with a good deal of savvy. He’s done this before, after all.
So, while praising Washington’s newly-promoted Vice President of Football Operations Eric Schaffer for his talent and tone as a negotiator, Cousins deftly reminded everyone Wednesday that he knows who really controls the purse-strings.
“Eric has done a great job all along. He’s very smart, this isn’t his first rodeo so I have a lot of faith in him not only in my situation but when my situation is handled handling everybody else’s, you know, I have faith in that,” Cousins said.
“But make no mistake,” Cousins continued. “There are titles ahead of him, and those people make decisions too. So, yes, Eric has a big role but there are people above him with bigger roles and that’s why their titles are president and head coach and so on and so forth.”
