Cousins to meet with Browns?

BigBlue4You09 : 3/9/2018 5:25 pm
From Mike Ortiz: Sources: With the addition of Jarvis Landry, an active Josh Gordon, two picks within the top 5, and cap space the Browns view themselves firmly in the mix for Kirk Cousins. Expect a meeting next week.

And that would mean Barkley #1 (probably regardless but this would cement that). That would be one scary offense
It would also

really up Cousin's stats.
If Cleveland

signs Cousins, count me in the camp that would want us to trade back. We could really get a massive haul.
I guess they'd pick Barkley and Nelson at 1 and 4 if this happens.

Things will get very interesting at the Giants' spot.

Doesn’t mean he’s likely to sign there.
Dear Cleveland...

Don't be stupid and sign the incredibly overrated Kirk Cousins.

Hes the top FA
I would start with Chubb if I were them  
Milton : 3/9/2018 5:37 pm : link
And then take either Barkley or Nelson or Fitzpatrick with the 4th overall.

I think that makes a lot of sense.

I'd go Barkley first, then wait for Chubb or whomever.

While the media has ordained Kirk as the top FA QB, I can't help to wonder why Brees is getting the attention. While he and the Saints have said the right things publicly regarding Brees remaining a Saint, he still does not have a contract. His existing contract voids on March 14th. The NFL and the NFLPA have agreed that his agent can discuss a contract with other teams. It seems that if a team is willing to pay Kirk, they should do their due diligence and see what it would take to get Brees. Make an offer that the Saints can't compete with.

Well it was said he was deciding between the Jets and Vikings, maybe this move entices him more to CLE? Obviously if it’s just about money he wouldn’t rule anyone out.
If The Browns pick Barkley at 1  
joeinpa : 3/9/2018 5:44 pm : link
And the Giants with all quarterbacks still on the board trade down, that will validate that the Giants FO shares the opinion of many in regard there these quarterbacks.

However I will be very surprised if they should pass on Darnold or even Allen.

These guys are both big strong mobile guys with it arms, in the case if Allen very big.

Shurmur considers himself a quarterback guru

He has a quarterback who will turn 38 next season, and a 3rd round second year guy who never played

Just can't see him passing up the chance to set himself and the team up for the next decade plus

sucks....

i want barkley
Their OL

With the weapons at WR. And potentially adding Barkley has to be intriguing
Not sure Browns  
bc4life : 3/9/2018 5:59 pm : link
would take Chubb. Their defense was pretty solid last year. Run defense averaged a little over 90 yards per game. They get a QB before the draft - I can't see how they do anything but Barkley, Nelson as someone else has already suggested.

Foles would make more sense than Counsins.

Tyrod traded to the Browns for a 3rd rounder. They’re definitely taking Saquon at 1 now.

Exactly. The Browns will have to really overpay to get Cousins not to go to the Vikings or another team that could make the playoffs.

Not really, it means Darnold is the likely choice. McCarron said he didn't want to be a bridge QB when he signs with a team.

Not sure how you can say Darnold is the likely choice. Even if Tyrod is a bridge, Cleveland will probably wait until #4 to pick a QB. I don't think they would've spent a 3rd just on a stopgap either.

A 3rd rd pick is really nothing compared to the total picks they hold. Why wait to 4 and miss out in their top choice?

No problem, I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on that. I'm pretty confident they'll select a QB at 1 and that's going to be Darnold.
Browns are in a position ...  
Manny in CA : 3/10/2018 5:59 pm : link

(If they sign Cousins), to get a top-tier vet and avoid the possibility of a
monumental 1st round QB bust and (if they trade with us to walk off with the two best players in the draft - Barkley and their choice Bradley Chubb or Fitzpatrick ....

AND, they still have a ton more draft choices.

They are in one heck of a position (with their draft position and ammunition) to rape the draft board and with their cap money,( #2 in the NFL) , the Free agent market as well.
