Head coach Jay Gruden put these words regarding Cousins to rest as he confirmed with reporters (via NFL.com), stating that RGIII has

With no quarterback controversy in sight, Gruden seems to have only high praise for his franchise guy. One thing Gruden reminded the media of is that not every play is a touchdown play, further commenting..
There’s been a lot of good. There’s been some bad, as most QBs go through training camp. Overall, I think he’s making progress at a good rate.
Griffin, who is incredibly talented as showcased in his rookie season two years ago, has a whole season ahead to continue to impress his new coach, and confirm that he is the ultimate key-holder for the franchise.

If you’re considering drafting RGIII for fantasy football, I do believe we will see an upswing in improvement this year as RGIII hits the field healthy and working in a more productive coaching system. The addition of DeSean Jackson along with Pierre Garcon and tight end Jordan Reed gives RGIII a multitude of powerful weapons at his disposal.
