Report: Possibility of a three-way trade involving Kirk Cousins, Tony Romo

Well, this would shake things up.

In the wildest permutation of the quarterback dominoes falling we’ve heard to date, we have a report that a three-way trade could be discussed which would include Washington, San Francisco and Dallas and presumably keep Tony Romo in the NFC East.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, as a potential Kirk Cousins deal to the 49ers is discussed, the two teams may involve the Cowboys.

That’s a lot of conditions jammed into one tweet.

That would mean Cousins could join Kyle Shanahan with the 49ers, Washington would end up with a longtime rival and the Cowboys would end up with picks.

This is, frankly, so far out there it’s hard to believe, as the idea of the Cowboys trading Romo to a team they play twice a year seems farfetched. And since Romo has some degree of control over this process, it would be a bit of a surprise if Washington would be the place he’d choose to be.

I think it's just click bait.....that said, if Dallas somehow got a 2nd rounder.....I'd do it in a heartbeat

People on the CowboyMB are acting like  we'd get a 1st rounder out of this. I said if anything 49ers give up the 34 and 66 pick and Dallas gets the 66 pick out the deal. 

Could Cousins go for the #2 overall pick? I don't see it.

NFL.com reports that Dallas would receive the number 2 overall pick from San Fran. If that were true what a deal that would be. Seams to crazy to believe.

San Fran Giving up the #2 overall pick for Kirk Cousins?

 

Yeah, that'll end well.

And the Redskins would end up with a broken down, injury prone QB who hasn't played a full schedule since 2012 (though I don't remember if some of those seasons were just because they sat him for non-injury reasons) and is arguably at the end of his career.

The Redskins would be better off just trading with the 49ers straight up for whatever picks they were going to send to Dallas. Why include Romo in the deal?

I don't get that. Romo is clearly not the future of any team right now.

He could possibly be the 'present', but it would be a fragile present and would be very shortsighted for the Redskins to trade away Cousins in his prime for Romo who has 1 foot in the career grave and the other foot 3 inches away from setting down right next to the other one.

Agreed. For a team like Denver, which has good skill players and a good defense, they could compete now with Romo. Maybe even Arizona as well. Washington doesn't make much sense.

Well for Redskins it would get rid of Cousins and bring in a division rival QB that may have a year or possibly two left which would buy them time to find his replacement. One website says Dallas would receive multiple picks and the other stated Dallas would receive the number 2 over all from San Fran. That would be even better then the Bradford trade for a first rounder. Still seams far fetched but strange things happen in the NFL. Imagine Dallas with the 2nd and 28th pick in the first round.

They won the division two years ago. Wonder how Romo would feel about this trade?

They won in a terrible division and could possibly lose a few weapons this off season. What would Romo see in Washington?

Apparently this was all speculation by Ian of a deal that could happen between the three teams per Profootballtalk.com. He must be really bored at the combine.

It was obvious it was speculation, he actually said so in the tweet that he made that sparked this whole thing. That just goes to show you how completely full of it sports media is. Everyone ran with this story that this proposed trade was on the table, and not a single source was ever cited. Journalism is dead in this country.

that makes no sense.  Romo isn't worth the #2 overall.

Did you guys even read the link? It says there is no serious talk about this and probably never will be. That is the crappiest made up trade senario I've ever seen. Wally horse can do better then that.

There is nothing to believe it says it in the first few sentences that there is no serious talk about it and there never will be.

The original tweet.

Play a potential and unprecedented three-way deal forward… #49ers inquire about Cousins. #Redskins talk about Tony Romo. #Cowboys get picks.

Your right but Bradford wasn't worth a 1st round pick either not even close. Fox sports has the story in more detail that makes sense for all three teams. Interesting to think about.

They do? Link? Because I would love to read how Tony Romo at his age and health status is worth the #2 overall pick

I see great benefit for Dallas here, but the Redskins could get rid of Cousins, take the picks that the 49ers are giving and if they're as high as they're said to be, either trade them for a long-term QB or use them to pick one.

If the 49ers would be idiot enough to give up the 2nd pick for Cousins, then why the hell wouldn't the Redskins want to take that pick themselves? They could either pick a QB with it or package it into a trade for a more long term solution. I bet the Browns would be willing to take it for RG3, in fact... :huh:

With Kyle Shana in San Fran now  and he believes Cousins can be his franchise QB. So why wouldn't he go after him even with a number 2 pick? This draft don't have a QB that they believe is worth a high pick. Look what Eagles gave up for Wentz. 

Romo would give Washington a chance to compete this year and maybe next or until they find their QB of the future. 

Dallas would benefit for sure. Getting rid of Romo's salary cap and loading up on picks.

If the Redskins want Romo, they could trade Cousins to the 49ers, then trade with the Cowboys for Romo for something that Romo's worth, like an 8th round pick. Certainly not the 2nd overall.

I completely understand the excitement that Cowboys fans would feel at seeing their team commit 'armed robbery' and coming out with the #2 overall pick, but it's an unrealistic scenario and if it happens, a very foolish move by the Redskins to give the #2 overall pick to a hated division rival.

Why would anyone trade anything for Romo much less the 2nd overall pick?  The Cowboys need him off their books.  They don't have leverage here.
