Kirk Cousins shows off competitive spirit, soft touch - at Jenga (VIDEO)

After NFL minicamps end in mid-June, and before the grind of training camps start in late July, players are free to have a little bit of fun and try to relax.

For Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins that evidently means a game of Jenga.

Fun at Kirk's 10 year high school reunion!!!

A post shared by Julie Cousins (@juliehcousins) on

The video comes from Cousins' wife Julie, and the caption explains that the couple were attending the quarterback's 10-year high school reunion. Looks like a fun scene, and the Michigan waterfront looks even better.

For anybody that has watched Cousins on the practice field or listened to him mic'd up during a Redskins game, the competitive outburst is no surprise. Cousins likes to win, period. Even at life-size Jenga during his 10-year high school reunion. 

Obviously, contract talks between Cousins' representatives and the Redskins continue, and likely will until the July 17th franchise tag deadline. Last season, Cousins threw for nearly 5,000 passing yards, completing 67 percent of his passes to go with 25 TDs and 12 INTs. He's allowed to have a little fun here and there.

President Obama, if you're reading this, know that Kirk Cousins would be honored to golf with you

President Obama, if you're reading this, know that Kirk Cousins would be honored to golf with you

Kirk Cousins could get used to this whole golf-with-the-president thing. 

The Redskins quarterback got the chance to play a round with President Donald Trump on June 10 at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster Township, New Jersey. 

Between the speedy rounds and fancy lunches talking about the NBA Finals, Cousins really enjoyed himself.

That's according to Eric Shuster, CSN's Director of Strategic Partnerships, who joined the outing as a personal friend of the Redskins quarterback.

Afterwards, Shuster said Cousins was eager to golf with more U.S. presidents, regardless of their politics. He specifically mentioned Barack Obama and George W. Bush. 

Cousins jokingly asked about lining up a round with President Obama, another avid golfer and basketball fan who famously golfed with Warriors star Stephen Curry. 

Aspirational, maybe. Kinda like telling someone you'd go to prom with them before they asked. 

But the idea isn't as far-fetched as it might have been with other presidents who've vacated the White House. 

That's because Obama recently purchased the home he was renting in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington. He'll be staying in town at least until his younger daughter, Sasha, graduates from high school. 

Plenty of time for a round or two on the green. Did you hear that, Mr. Obama?

President Trump asked Kirk Cousins about his contract and whether LeBron James was still the best

President Trump asked Kirk Cousins about his contract and whether LeBron James was still the best

Is LeBron James still the best player in the NBA? Is Kirk Cousins going to re-sign with the Redskins? 

Those are the top two questions on the minds of many D.C. sports fans. They're also on the mind of President Donald Trump. 

Trump brought up both subjects at lunch after playing a round of golf with Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins

Eric Shuster, CSN's Director of Strategic Partnerships, joined the June 10 outing as a personal friend of Cousins and related pieces of the day's conversations. 

While dining at the Trump National Golf Club grill, Shuster said the President asked him and Cousins what they thought of the hot NBA topics of the day.

Could the Cavaliers, who had just routed the Warriors in Game 4 to stave off elimination, pull off a comeback to win the NBA Finals? And was LeBron James still the best player in the NBA?

Trump was curious what they thought, but didn't reveal his own take on the topics during the conversation.

Having recently relocated from New York to Washington, Trump wanted to know how Cousins liked his time there, and whether he planned to re-sign with the Redskins. 

That's been the major question for the franchise and its fans for the past two summers.

But even the President of the United States asking didn't change Cousins's polite response: He would leave the contract talk to his agent.
