ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported on NFL Insiders that new Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan “loves” Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, according to Rotoworld.com.
ESPN NFC East reporter Dan Graziano chimed in, saying he recently spoke to an executive on a quarterback-needy club who “wouldn’t give up more than a three (third-round pick)” for Cousins. Cousins has essentially asked the Redskins to trade him, but they won’t get a premium draft choice. The Browns do have a lot of 2014 picks and could conceivably make Washington a mid-round offer.
I would bet on the Browns drafting a quarterback rather then trying to trade for Cousins.
