Rumor: Three way trade sending Cousins to 49ers, Romo to Redskins, Picks to Cowboys...Terrible

This would make fans happy...

Bruce Allen discussed the exclusive franchise tag being placed on Kirk Cousins because the team wanted to keep him long-term. He also said the team was tired of the nonsense of possible trade scenarios out there. Enter Ian Rapoport with the most nonsense trade scenario presented yet. The 49ers get Cousins, the Redskins get Tony Romo, and the Cowboys get picks. There would obviously be other factors if this Jerry Jones fantasy ever became reality, but the only loser in this deal would be the Redskins.

The Cowboys get rid of Romo, the aging injury prone QB with a huge salary cap, and McNabb him to the Redskins for picks. Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers get a franchise QB to build around. The Redskins get...nothing. Moving on.
