Browns offered Redskins fourth-round pick for Kirk Cousins
The Browns offered the Redskins a fourth-round pick for Kirk Cousins, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.
That didn't preclude them from exploring other avenues though: CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported Tuesday the Browns offered the Redskins a fourth-round pick for their backup quarterback Kirk Cousins.
The Redskins, however, rebuffed the trade.
Just want to reiterate, Browns were rebuffed by Skins on Kirk Cousins offer. All parties (incl. RG3) would welcome trade, except Bruce Allen— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) May 13, 2014
At this point barring a QB getting hurt elsewhere Cousins likely stuck in WSH, but that starter and backup would prefer otherwise.— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) May 13, 2014

A perfect situation would've been for the Browns -- or someone else -- to trade for Cousins prior to the draft and avoid grabbing a quarterback. Cleveland, where Kyle Shanahan is coaching, makes a ton of sense.
But the value apparently wasn't there for Washington, who's coming closer and closer to drafting Cousins and never getting any real value for him as a result outside of him being a backup.
2014 should be plenty awkward.
