The Redskins Wire reported that head coach Jay Gruden is elated with the arrival of Alex Smith, but may have also taken a shot at Cousins in the process. A tweet by JP Finlay reads as follows:
Cousins lack of “taking responsibility” or saying that his players “want to play” for Smith now is a moot point for Gruden. I’m sure Cousins could argue all of these same points for Gruden as head coach, but for what? Everyone is happy in their new positions so why look back? Not to mention, this says a lot more about Gruden than it does Cousins.
