GAITHERSBURG, Md. (CBSDC) — Sunday was Kirk Cousins final opportunity to showcase his talents for potential suitors.

Three weeks ago, Cousins took over for Robert Griffin III after the likely departing Mike Shanahan said he wanted to ensure the franchise quarterback’s health for the offseason.

Cousins could not provide a much needed win against the Atlanta Falcons or Dallas Cowboys and saved his least eyebrow raising performance for the season finale against the New York Giants.

In a driving rain, Cousins amassed a meager 31.8 rating behind a 19-of-49, 169-yard effort at MetLife Stadium that included two interceptions, but no touchdowns.

Overall, Cousins finished the season with 62 completions on 106 attempts with four touchdowns, five interceptions, 685 yards and a 70.7 passer rating.

His best effort came in his first start against an Atlanta secondary that featured three rookie starters before regressing in consecutive weeks.

When Griffin was told he’d be riding the pine, there was a glimmer of hope that Washington would be able to replenish one of the first round draft picks traded to St. Louis for the Heisman Trophy winner if Cousins played well.

Instead it appears the Redskins will be shopping Cousins for a mid-round pick at best.
