    Using a rumor tag, just because it isn't official.

    Some teams have been in contact with the Redskins in exchange for a 4th round pick. Before, I did not want Cousins, because I felt he could not be traded for so little. If we can get him for a 4th, do you pull the trigger?

    I would, in a heart beat. He would almost certainly make Fitz expendable, freeing up some needed cap space. Then we roll into the season with an open camp between Locker and Cousins. Which would probably be good for both of them. A 4th is what several people here hope/speculate that we take a QB, I would like this to be Cousins, *IF* we can get him for a 4th.

    I'm not sure if there's a QB needy team that wouldn't give up a 4th for him. The Skins can probably get a much better deal out of him. I wouldn't give up a 2nd though.

    if we can get him for a fourth I wouldn't be mad but wouldn't be excited either. He's nothing.special to me but if he play more than half a season and learn the o quick you have to at least consider it

    It's a No brainer to give a 4th.

    Guys, Kirk Cousins sucks. Keep the draft pick, considering we don't have a third, and get someone we don't know already sucks.

    I wouldn't say he sucks.. I just wouldn't give up a 1st or 2nd round pick for him.

    He sucks. He played Dallas, Atlanta and NY Giants this season. Three of the worst defenses in the league. Four TDs, seven INTs and two lost fumbles.

    We'd be taking a gamble on a guy who has been below average when he's played. Why use a draft pick on someone like that when you can take someone with a clean slate in the fourth round?

    Below average OL and WR.. I'm not saying he's the next coming, but I just don't see a bad QB when I saw him play.

    Too drunk to pull up stats, but he looks pretty decent as a QB to me. I would take Kirk over any 4th round pick.

    What's the obsession with Kirk Cousins about? He is terrible, puts up terrible stats, and has had one or two semi decent games out of the 4 that he's started in. Overall, in 8 games he only has a 56.2 completion percentage, has 8 touchdowns, 10 interceptions, and a qb rating of 68.6

    Cousins is under contract for the next two years for around $800,000. This may be a very viable solution toward the "Jake Locker" situation here in Nashville. At that bargain price, Cousins in my opinion may be one of the "quietly" best young quarterbacks out there just waiting for his chance to take the starting role for an NFL franchise like Tennessee that may almost be there going into 2014 by trading for him.

    He has the right offensive coaches and with the added pressure on Locker's shoulders, may get the best out of Jake finally. Worse case scenario, the Titans field two very good and competitive young quarterbacks upgraded above a Ryan Fitzpatrick that would save the Titans almost $4 Million in Cap Money with his release. The one problem going into this years draft is not having a 3rd round pick and the ultimate trade potential and "what-to-do" with situation about the Chris Johnson.
