08:44 AM ET 02.22 | Kirk Cousins isn't untouchable, but don't expect to see him change football addresses this offseason. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Friday that the Washington Redskins do not intend to trade their backup quarterback. This comes two days after a report surfaced that Washington was looking for a second-round draft pick in exchange for Cousins. It's a high price tag for a former fourth-round pick who's been inconsistent when given the opportunity to play in his first two seasons. According to Rapoport, there isn't a market for Cousins at that price and the Redskins aren't particularly motivated to deal away a cheap and capable understudy to Robert Griffin III.

This has to be a make it or break it year for RGIII.

It's not that there's no market. It's that the price tag is ridiculous.

If you're not serious about trading a guy then put him on the block. It's never a smart idea to float trade rumors on a guy you intend to keep.

Very true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

he won't be traded because nobody is dumb enough to give them a 2nd round pick.

It really comes down to this he's a cheap back up so if you want him it's going to cost you. Not worth a 3rd rounder IMO

Of course there is a market for him. A 5th round pick market....

February 22, 2014  04:39 PM ET

Just a few days ago right here on FN there was a story that the Redskins were wanting a 2nd round pick for him. This time of year believe nothing. The lips move but no truth is told.

Oh yes. They waited a year too long. But with RG3-and-13's injury, they couldn't afford to move him.

Ed Zachary.

This time of year, you can tell a GM is lying because his lips are moving.

This article says the same thing, only they're inferring that no one wants to pay it.

This poor kid is suffering because of Shanahan's ability to screw people. He might be starting QB material, but he probably will never get the chance.
