Redskins Offseason 2012: Kirk Cousins Agrees To A 4-Year Deal

The Washington Redskins raised some eyebrows when they drafted former Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft after taking Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick, and they've now made that official.

As Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com and NFL Network reported on Twitter this morning:

The Redskins confirmed the signing shortly after Jeremiah's report. Cousins is the all-time leader at Michigan State in completions, passing yards, and touchdowns. He should also be receiving a signing bonus of $472,688.
