Over the past week, we have learned that Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins wants to be traded to compete for a starting job in the league. One place that was initially thought as a place for Cousins were the Browns. However, Mary Kay Cabot of the of Clevelend.com was told by a source that the possibility of Cousins coming to the Browns is unlikely.
The Browns hired former Redskins’ offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and the thought of a reunion in Cleveland would be nice but the stats show Cousins has a rating of just 68.6 in Shanahan’s offensive scheme.
Cousins does sound good because a move like this reminds you of the one between the Falcons and Texans with Matt Schaub. Although the Texans never went where they wanted with Schaub, he helped turn the organization around into a playoff team until 2013. The Browns would definitely like to see a quarterback that can help turn things around.
There is the draft, but do the Browns have time to wait for a Teddy Bridgewater or Blake Bortles type quarterback to come into his own? The Browns have given their recent head coaches just one season to turn the franchise around.
For now, things will stay quiet in Cleveland.
