"I don't know the misconceptions that were out there but I feel good. I'm ready to go," Cousins said. "I've been feeling good the last several weeks, and I believe we've done a good job communicating between myself and the team. We are all on the same page."
Cousins spoke to the media following the teams first walk through on Thursday on day one of the Redskins 2017 training camp. The sixth year quarterback out of Michigan State fielded questions ranging from his contract situation, driving his famous van, training camp burnout and on the thoughts of his upcoming child due during the season.
Cousins also got a vote of confidence from Head Coach Jay Gruden when asked if the one year contract deal would affect the way quarterback reps would be handled during camp.

With the departure of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, along with the arrival of Terrell Pryor, Cousins will be preparing with a mix of returning veterans and new personnel.
Cousins first meeting with Pryor came at a Starbucks last summer as both were traveling to their camps and met outside of Cleveland.
"I watched him in week 4 against the Browns, I was really impressed with what he was able to do," Cousins said. "He had a great year last year, we just want to build on that and hopefully give him an opportunity to have even more success this season."
