Redskins Coach Gruden Wants a More Aggressive Kirk Cousins in 2018

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says he wants quarterback Kirk Cousins to be more aggressive in 2018 according to John Keim of ESPN.

Of course, that is assuming the impending free agent is still in Washington in 2018 with either a long-term contract or a third-consecutive franchise tag. Considering that he lost both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon and was working with several new receivers, it is not surprising that Cousins struggled to manufacture big plays in the passing game this season but Gruden seems to believe that some of the blame belongs to his quarterback. “A lot of times he needs to see guys being open instead of throwing guys open from time to time,” Gruden said. “Then when you do that, they have to make plays for you. You’ll never know until those balls are thrown.”

If Cousins does remain a Redskins, he will likely benefit from another offseason of work with purported No.1 wideout Josh Doctson but the team badly needs an influx of talent at the skill positions.
