When the Cleveland Browns opted to select Myles Garrett with the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, they were left with a void at the quarterback position. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, they’re trying to fill that void by trading for Washington Redskins signal caller Kirk Cousins.
Wow. Cleveland is trying to trade for Kirk Cousins. This is real.

How willing the Redskins are to make the trade or what they’d want remains to be seen. While the market has generally cooled recently, Cousins has been bandied about in trade rumors throughout the off-season.
So, it shouldn’t be surprising to hear that the team with a load of draft picks and a need at quarterback is looking to acquire him.
