Bruce Allen, the Washington Redskins president, said he is adamant the team will hold onto starting quarterback Kirk Cousins. He even said Cousins is not going anywhere.

Allen said that the odds are that Cousins stays in Washington is a 10. The team has already said they would franchise tag him for the second straight season if they are not able to reach a long-term deal by March.

“Yeah, Kirk is our quarterback,” Allen said. “He’s played well the last two years. I know there’s other speculation, but it doesn’t come from the Redskins.”

The speculation is that once Kyle Shanahan, the present Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator, becomes the San Francisco 49ers head coach following the Super Bowl, Shanahan would go after Cousins. The two were together in Washington.

Also, the 49ers desperately needs a quarterback. Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert has proven not to be the answer for them.

They also have the second overall pick, where they could potentially draft North Carolina Tar Heels quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who is considered the most pro-ready quarterback in the draft.

The 28-year-old had 4,917 passing yards this past season, including seven 300-yard passing games. He had 25 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions.

Last season, his first full-time season as the Redskins starter, he had 4,166 passing yards, where he also had seven 300-passing yardage games. He had 29 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions.
