According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, the Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers are viewed as potential destinations for Kirk Cousins if the Washington Redskins were to trade him. Note: In order for a trade to even be a possibility, the Redskins would have to franchise tag him first.

Here is exactly what Cole said via his Washington source:

A Washington source indicated that are willing to weigh their options this offseason with quarterback Kirk Cousins, including the possibility of trading him with either San Francisco or Cleveland being the most likely destinations. The 49ers would chase Cousins once they hire Kyle Shanahan, and perhaps include the No. 2 overall pick in the deal. The Browns also have interest, and Cousins played in the Hue Jackson offense under Jay Gruden.

There are already a bunch of scenarios the Browns could take at quarterback next year, so I guess throwing one more person into the mix won’t hurt anyone, right?
