The Washington Redskins remain open to parting ways with Kirk Cousins at the right price.
Mark Maske of The Washington Post reported the Redskins want a second-round pick in the NFL draft in exchange for the backup quarterback, according to a person familiar with the team's planning.
They're highly unlikely to get it. Cousins seems to be the perfect fit to be a career back up in the NFL for 10 plus years. He has a 56.2 completion percentage, 51.5 QBR and 8:10 TD-to-INT ratio in eight career games. It would be a sign of absolute desperation if a quarterback-needy team gave up a second-rounder for Cousins. ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
