Kirk Cousins is now the unquestioned starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins. But just because he's not locked in a quarterback controversy for the first time in his four-year career doesn't mean he's playing it cool.

Cousins says he knows he doesn't know it all and is willing to reach out to current and former starting quarterbacks to help accelerate his learning curve.

"Basically, I'm trying to figure that out still," Cousins said, via CSN Mid-Atlantic. "I feel like I'm still in [that] process."

"I've called a few of the starting quarterbacks around the league, a few of the retired guys who had great careers," he added, "and just asked them what worked for them in the offseason."

Cousins didn't reveal which quarterbacks he called for advice but he did talk about what he asked them.

"What was their rhythm in January, February, March?" Cousins said. "When they went back in April, May, June, what's their rhythm? What's their rhythm in the summer? How do they handle family? How do they balance travel and opportunities?"

Cousins played well after being named the starter over Robert Griffin last season, throwing for 4,166 yards with 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The Redskins placed the franchise tag on Cousins, paying him $19.95 million next season.
