Report: Browns Unlikely To Trade For Kirk Cousins


With Kyle Shanahan setting up roots in Cleveland, many expected the Browns to possibly target Redskins backup Kirk Cousins to take over the reigns.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of, it’s a remote possibility the Browns would trade for Cousins.

Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins is open to being traded and Cleveland could be a possible destination, according to a report.

But a source told Sunday that although the Browns will explore all options at quarterback, it’s a remote possibility they’d trade for the third-year pro.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Cousins, a fourth-round pick in 2012 out of Michigan State, believes he’s ready to start and has already talked to the Redskins about possibly dealing him.

Sources also told Schefter that Cleveland is a possible destination because of Browns new coordinator Kyle Shanahan, the former Redskins’ playcaller.

The Browns will have several options to look in regards to their quarterback position.  The recovery of Brian Hoyer from an ACL injury needs to be examined.

Are the rumors about Johnny Manziel accurate?
