Not long ago, the idea of Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins and the Los Angeles Rams looked to make almost perfect sense. Jared Goff has closed that chapter in the mind of fans and critics alike.
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff has closed the book on a few things so far in 2017. Talk of being a bust looks to be gone, and so do the rumors that if he were, a reunion of Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins and head coach Sean McVay could be in play.
How it ends up in Washington for the guy on another one year franchise tag remains to be seen, but the future for Goff and the Rams looks to be about as solid as it could be.
But it wasn’t always that way.
After a bad start to his professional career, the offseason in Los Angeles was rife with talk that should the second year quarterback from Cal go belly up, that Cousins would be a good fit for the first year head coach. I personally wrote that Goff was likely auditioning in LA as Cousins was again in D.C.

For the Rams and Goff, the “audition” looks to be going pretty well, and the eventual destination for Washington’s starter is as unknown now as it was at anytime since he’s been the bridesmaid and not the bride.
Doesn’t mean he can’t wind up out West.
Both Arizona and San Francisco will be looking for a signal caller come 2018, as the clock looks to be ticking on Carson Palmer and the Cardinals, and whomever the starter/clipboard holder is for the 49ers.
So, it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Cousins could still wind up playing in the LA Coliseum.
He just won’t be in a Rams uniform.
