“I’m open to a trade but I love Washington, the city, and fans,” said Cousins. “My goal is to be a starting quarterback but I’m willing to wait my turn at the same time. Open to all options.”
ESPN Adam Schefter previously reported that Cousins was open to being traded and specifically mentioned that the Browns could be a speculative landing spot for him given that they have hired former Redskins OC Kyle Shanahan as their new offensive coordinator.
Cousins, 25, is under contract through the 2015 season at very reasonable base salaries. He has passed for 1,320 yards, eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions over the course of his two-year career.
The Redskins would have to wait until March 11 to actually trade him, but they are expected to find interest from teams around the league. I’m sure we’ll be hearing a lot more regarding Cousins and a potential trade in the coming months.
