The Redskins, 49ers and Cowboys may have a blockbuster trade brewing.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Washington Redskins and San Francisco 49ers are currently discussing a potential trade involving Skins' quarterback Kirk Cousins. Rapoport adds that the deal could include the Dallas Cowboys and more specifically veteran quarterback Tony Romo.
It seems like an eventuality that Romo will be either traded or released, so getting a maximum return for him would be on the Cowboys' interest.
This unprecedented three-way affair that would bring Kirk Cousins from Washington to the San Francisco 49ers, Tony Romo from Dallas to Washington and draft picks to the Cowboys.
This trade would send Cousins to San Fran, playing under former head coach Mike Shanahan, who spent last year as the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons. Last season, Cousins completed 67% of his passes and finished just shy of 5,000 passing yards (4,917) with 25 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
The Niners are moving on from Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert is also a free agent, and could use Cousins.
There are a lot of moving parts here, but this could prove mutually beneficial for all three clubs involved.
