Kirk Cousins wants Washington to be a team known for winning without drama.
"I want this brand, this organization, to be associated with winning and when people around the league and our fans that support this league think about this organization, I want them to think of winners," Cousins said.
He was asked about the possibility of finishing 8-8.
Washington could use the franchise tag on Cousins again this offseason.
Cousins could conceivably end up with the Steelers if Ben Roethlisberger retires while the Giants, Vikings, Cardinals, Broncos, Jaguars, Bills, Jets and Dolphins are also potential destinations.
Cousins was previously linked to the 49ers but they are set at quarterback following their trade for Jimmy Garoppolo.
