Alex Smith heading to Redskins, Possibly helps Cousins come to Cleveland

Tuesday night news broke that Alex Smith will be heading to the Washington Redskins. Earlier today, Smith commented on his thoughts if he would have ended up in a Browns uniform.

Updated at 10:22 p.m.: According to’s Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns tried to trade for Alex Smith according to a league source but is instead going to the Redskins.

The news of Smith heading to Washington came from Bleacher Report:

It seems that the Redskins have already moved on from free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins by making this trade. During the 2017 season, Cousins made nearly $24 million and was only had a franchise tag.

Cousins would bring 6 years of NFL experience if the Browns happened to sign him.

Cousins, 29, was drafted in the fourth round of NFL draft in 2012 by the Redskins. The 6’3” quarterback has made it to the Pro Bowl, has started 57 games (played in 62), has a record of 26-30-1, has completed 1,372 passes on 2,096 attempts, he has thrown for 16,206 yards, has 99 touchdown passes, and has thrown 55 interceptions.

Cousins got his opportunity during the 2015 season when he was named the starter over former Redskin and Browns QB Robert Griffin III.

Cousins helped lead his team to the playoffs in 2015, which would bring a QB that has some playoff experience to the Cleveland Browns.

If Cousins happens to land in Cleveland something tells me that a lot of Browns fans would be agreeing with the following:
