ESPN reported Sunday morning that Cousins had informed the Redskins that he was open to being traded. But according to the Washington Post the quarterback has not made any demands for a trade. At the same time, Cousins has the goal of starting in the NFL, and he knows that barring injury to Griffin, that goal isn’t possible with the Redskins. And so, if a trade did present itself, Cousins would embrace that situation.
The person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Cousins isn’t so desperate to be traded that he would want to be in a bad situation just so he could start. Instead, he would likely rather wait another two years and then go elsewhere as a free agent.
According to the Washington Post, he hasn’t requested a trade from the Washington Redskins, but would welcome the opportunity to go elsewhere and start in the NFL if the opportunity arose. So it sounds as if he still could be headed to the Cleveland Browns if it was for the right price.
