With Robert Griffin III being shut down for the remainder of the season, Kirk Cousins has gotten a chance to put on an audition for other teams. With a franchise quarterback like RG3 and a lack of draft picks, there is no reason for the Redskins to hold on to the former Michigan State leader. In his first two games, Cousins has thrown for 578 yards with four touchdowns and three interceptions. He has avoided pressure well and made some very impressive throws. With all that being said, he are three potential suitors for Cousins

Cleveland Browns- It is no secret that Rod Chudzinski and Norv Turner like to throw the ball. They shipped Trent Richardson out of town so they can focus entirely on the pass game. However, in order to have an effective passing game you need to have a good quarterback. Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden don’t scream efficiency. While Brian Hoyer played well in his limited time, the sample size is too small to make any realistic judgments about his skill. With potential superstar receivers in Josh Gordon and Jordan Cameron, along with an already impressive defense, Cousins could be the last piece before Cleveland can seriously envision going back to the playoffs.

Houston Texans- Despite one of the most disappointing years for a team in NFL history, the Texans still have a strong core. Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, and JJ Watt are all top 10 players at their respective positions. The main issue has been under center this year. Matt Schaub has completely imploded and Case Keenum has shown he’s not a starter in this league. To make matters worse, it looks as if both Teddy Bridgewater and Marcus Mariota will be staying for there senior seasons. With a new head coach set to come in, a new quarterback would be very beneficial the new regime. With a mix of veteran leadership and young talent, Cousins could be the perfect guy to shoot the Texans back to their initial projections.

Denver Broncos- Now I know what everyone is thinking. Why does Denver need a quarterback when they have the legendary Peyton Manning having one of the greatest seasons ever? With all that being true, Peyton is going to be 38 next season. He has also been fighting through two bad ankles for a good portion of this year. At the height of those injuries, Manning was playing fine, but noticeably worse than at the beginning of the year. If Denver wins the Super Bowl this year, it may not be crazy for Peyton to consider going out on top. Bringing in Cousins creates an insurance plan for when Manning finally hangs it up. The drop wont be as bad and Denver can remain a top team in the AFC with this pick up.

What do you guys think? Should the Redskins trade Cousins? If so, where? Leave a comment below with your reactions/suggestions

10 – Alex Smith – It isn’t all the running game when you have a QB that has 5 losses in the past 3 seasons, he definitely has talent. Might not be the best fantasy QB but he’s not a bad option.

9 – Andrew Luck. – He is going against a relatively strong DEF that are coming off a bye week, but Luck was on a bye week too. If Luck can make the adjustments he needs to without Wayne in the system, he can have fun against a Texans DEF who will be on the field a lot without a good offense.

8- RGIII. – Barring his health status which seems minor he is looking for a bounce back game. He probably has a good fantasy day against SD but won’t get the win.

7- Russell Wilson – Yeah so he is going against the no fly zone, but he will have plenty of time to run the ball with TB barely able to hold onto the ball. With Lynch in the backfield that’s the biggest distraction you need once Percy Harvin is back.

6- Andy Dalton. – Coming off the week he just had and proving to the world he has more weapons than just AJ Green, he is one of the most underrated players in the league going against a Miami defense who is hit or miss.

5- Phillip Rivers – Washington has been torched week after week giving up 32+ points a week. Enough said, but once you add River’s talent and the fact that he’s coming off a bye week, look for his chemistry to be perfect among his WR and some good numbers.

4- Aaron Rodgers – Going against a incredibly disappointing CHI defense, and without Cutler, Rodgers will have plenty of time with the ball.

3- Cam Newton – Watch him run for some yardage and throw long going against a weak ATL defense.

2- Tony Romo – Going against a team that gives up 300+ passing yards a week will be a good way to get the Cowboys on the same page. Getting Murray back next week and going into a must win, Romo will flourish. “Dez Bryant isn’t a “ME” person at all.” He has his team’s back at all times.

1 – Drew Brees – Going against a team that allowed 49 points and 325 passing yards last week with 5 passing TDs. Expect good things from this Saint.
