The Washington Redskins and SanFransico 49ers are discussing a potential deal for quarterback Kirk Cousins in the near future.
NFL Network Reporter Ian Rapoport said they may include Cowboys backup quarterback QB Tony Romo.
The 49ers called about Cousins, Redskins called about Romo and the Cowboys will get draft picks if the deal were to happen.
The Redskins placed the exclusive franchise tag on Cousins on Tuesday. There were reports that the Redskins offered Cousins a $20 million per year, Cousins didn’t feel too thrilled with how much they offered. Kirk Cousins remain far apart from on the deal.
What makes this deal interesting is that Kyle Shanahan (New 49ers head coach) was the offensive coordinator from 2010-2013 and he was a big mentor for Cousins in Washington.
