News has recently leaked suggesting the Redskins would prefer to keep Cousins, but that appears to be nothing more than hot air as the Washington Post reports the Redskins are wanting a second round draft pick for Coiusins.
The Washington Redskins want a second-round pick in the NFL draft if they are going to trade backup quarterback Kirk Cousins, according to a person familiar with the team’s planning.
I also want a date with Kate Upton – neither is happening.
Of course, in fairness to the Redskins, they need to set the bar high simply for negotiation purposes but to expect anything near a second round pick is absurd. They likely wouldn’t exceed more than a fourth round pick for Cousins (and that’s on a good day), which may force the team to retain him and keep him as Robert Griffin‘s backup moving forward.
They could potentially attempt to send him to a quarterback needy team later in the offseason or before the trade deadline as well.
