07:25 AM ET 02.20 | Washington may not have a first-round pick, but it could be looking for a way to add another in the second. [The Redskins] want a second-round pick in the NFL draft if they are going to trade backup quarterback Kirk Cousins, according to a person familiar with the team's planning. It's not clear how active the Redskins' trade discussions with other teams regarding Cousins are at this point, or what other clubs might be willing to surrender in a trade for him. It also is not known if Redskins officials will remain adamant about wanting to receive a second-round choice for Cousins or if the team ultimately might be willing to part with him for a lesser compensation package. ... Cousins was a fourth-round choice in 2012 and has spent two seasons as Griffin's backup.

I don't see any team giving up a 2nd round pick for a backup.

Maybe a year ago. But they killed his draft value at the end of the 2013 season.

Cousins 2013 numbers were:
4 touchdowns
7 interceptions
52.3% completions
5.5 yards per attempt

No one's trading a 2nd-rounder for that.

In Alabama they marry their cousins ... and there is no price to pay whatsoever.

Sure there is.. Eventual retardation.

Until RGIII proves that he's able to play as effectively from the pocket as he can when he's running, the Skins ought to keep Cousins around. We've already seen that Griffin has problems staying healthy.

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday, the Redskins weren't even consdiring trading Cousins (according to T&R, that is)

That is a problem. Too much tape on the guy now, and much of it is not pretty. I suppose they can ask, but not going to happen.

That was a shanahan parting gift.... Sinking this kid's stock before he left town.

Other than Elway, has there ever been a QB whose career Shanatan hasn't been able to destroy, or at least significantly damage?

I didn't think you would miss Shatahan.

There is always Oakland. You would think that they have learned from their mistakes but you never know. Lets not forget how they saved Seattle by taking Matt Flynn off of Seattles hands.

The guy is a 4th round pick and they want 2nd round compensation for him? He's not even a starter.

You would think a quality back up would be a priority for the Redskins . Maybe they are on the look for one too and do not see cousins as one? Hmmm?

Asking price for Cousins

It should be less than the asking price for twins because you get 2 for 1.

Is there something wrong with that? In East Tennessee, they marry their sisters and in Texas, they marry their goats (or is it sheep?).
