Professional careerEdit

Baltimore RavensEdit

Cousins was selected by the Baltimore Ravens as a guard in the third round of the 2008 NFL Draft. During his time in Baltimore, Cousins was a backup at the position, seeing some starting time due to injuries.

On August 27, 2011, he was waived by the Ravens.

Cleveland BrownsEdit

He was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns on August 29, 2011.[1] He had one start in 2011, 0 in 2012, but was the starting right guard on opening day in 2013. He has started 4 games in the current season.

Tampa Bay BuccaneersEdit

Cousins signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on March 16, 2014, to a one-year contract.[2] His debut season with Tampa did not go well as he was a part of an offensive line that gave up the most sacks in the league. He became an unrestricted free agent after the 2014 season.
