Kirk Cousins unlikely to be pursued by Browns

Cleveland Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot is reporting the Browns are not expected to "make a run" at Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins. However, Cabot adds that three other teams around the league have inquired about Cousins in the "past 10 days or so", but were "immediately turned down."

Fantasy Impact

It appears that the Browns, who acquired a boatload of draft picks to likely package in a trade for a franchise quarterback, are not going to pursue Cousins despite the reports via Tuesday suggesting that they will. Cabot believes that the Browns are out of the mix because of the compensation it would take to ultimately acquire him. Plus, "they'd probably have to make any deal contingent upon a multi-year extension," so that they don't mortgage their future to rent Cousins for one year, per Cabot. And although three other teams reportedly inquired about Cousins, their offers were shot down right away. Cousins could play the 2017 season in Washington after all, with or without a long-term deal in place by the July 15 deadline. He already signed his franchise tag last week. For the Browns, they are still expected to try to trade for Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo, or, Bengals backup A.J. McCarron. If they fail to bring in a signal caller via trade, and if they don't draft one, they'll likely enter the season with Cody Kessler as their starter. Unless of course, they sign Jay Cutler, Colin Kaepernick or Geno Smith, who are all available free agents that remain unsigned.
