Cleveland Browns: Breaking down the potential pursuit of Kirk Cousins
The Cleveland Browns are looking for a quarterback, and Kirk Cousins could be an option if the Browns want to commit to a long-term option.
At any given time, there are about 15 people in the world capable of being successful quarterbacks in the NFL. And right now, Kirk Cousins is one of those individuals.
The Cleveland Browns have not had a dominant quarterback since the days of Bernie Kosar, which is amazing considering how many different quarterbacks have passed through Cleveland since then.
Cousins is set to be a free agent, unless he is once again franchise tagged by the Washington Redskins, and the Browns could be one of the teams with genuine interest in him.
It is still early to hone in on one single player as a target, especially when the team may look to build through the draft, but it is hard to ignore Cousins’ presence on the open market if that’s where he ends up.
The move would reunite Cousins with Robert Griffin III, if he wasn’t cut, and would see Cousins step in as the starter right away, which would be a welcome change from the constant quarterback competitions in Cleveland.
It may be a longshot possibility, but let’s take a look at the benefits of signing Cousins, and if this move would even be feasible for the Browns at this point in the franchise rebuild.
