In an interesting development, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com joined Bull & Fox on 92.3 The Fan (h/t Bleacher Report) and listed the Browns as one of the teams on free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins' radar, which includes the Denver Broncos and Jacksonville JaguarsThe Redskins, having already placed the franchise tag on Cousins for two consecutive seasons, would be loath to tag him again at a $34.5 million clip.

Washington could also use the transition tag, which would cost $28 million. Owner Dan Snyder could've saved millions in signing Cousins two seasons ago, instead of continually paying the top rate. The Browns weren't seen as a team in the mix for Cousins, because of the team's apparently lack of stability on the field or the front office. However, they can afford to lock the Michigan State product in at a salary number he covets.

I think something has to be done. I personally don't want to go through another one-year deal, and just [keep going] one year, one year. I think you want to have a quarterback in here that's going to be here. And hopefully that is Kirk, and if not, we have to move on and do what we have to do as an organization.
