Redskins Sign Fourth-Round Pick Cousins

Posted May 31, 2012

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed 2012 fourth-round draft pick quarterback Kirk Cousins (102nd overall).


The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed 2012 fourth-round draft pick quarterback Kirk Cousins (102nd overall).  

Cousins (6-3, 214) played collegiately at Michigan State, where he appeared in 45 games, starting 39 of his last 40.

For his collegiate career, he completed 723-of-1,128 passes (64.1 percent) for 9,131 yards with a school-record 66 touchdown passes. In addition, he established a Michigan State career record with a 146.08 pass efficiency rating.

A three-year team captain, Cousins was only the second player in Spartan history to be named team captain as a sophomore and the first since 1949 to earn that honor.

Academically, Cousins is one of only 16 players in Michigan State history to earn Academic All-Big Ten Conference honors during all four collegiate seasons.

Cousins, 23, was born on Aug. 19, 1988. He attended Holland Christian H.S. in Holland, Mich., where he earned All-Ottawa-Kent Conference honors in football, basketball and baseball.

In 2006, Cousins was an All-State and Academic All-State honorable mention choice by the Michigan High School Football Coaches Association, setting 35 school game-, season- and career-records en route to being named Area Player of the Year.

With his signing, Cousins becomes the seventh Redskins draft pick to sign his rookie contract.  The remaining unsigned draft picks are Robert Griffin III (No. 2 overall) and Josh LeRibeus (No. 71 overall).
