Redskins backup quarterback Kirk Cousins is open to being traded and Cleveland could be a possible destination, according to a report.
But a source told cleveland.com Sunday that although the Browns will explore all options at quarterback, it's a remote possibility they'd trade for the third-year pro.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Cousins, a fourth-round pick in 2012 out of Michigan State, believes he's ready to start and has already talked to the Redskins about possibly dealing him.
Sources also told Schefter that Cleveland is a possible destination because of Browns new coordinator Kyle Shanahan, the former Redskins' playcaller.
It could be a good fit, but would be a difficult competition with Hoyer in the fold. The Shanahan connection is what makes this intriguing.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Stephen Voigt went 3-for-5 with a home run, five RBI and one run scored in the Athletics 8-6 loss to the Twins on Monday.
Voigts first inning grand slam gave him seven home runs on the season to go along with 25 RBI and an impressive .372 average. The Athletics surprisingly traded away catcher Derek Norris to the Padres in the offseason which left the starting catcher job to Voigt who impressed during stretches of last season before being hobbled with an injury which clearly affected his production. The power is real with Voigt which is something many expected from him with every day at bats but the batting average and overall productiveness has been a welcomed site and has made him an early fantasy darling to his owners. While there is certainly going to be some regression in his average there is little doubt he will reach the 20 home run plateau which should rank him among the league leads at the position.
