    IMO no team will give up a lot in comp for a trade & also take on that contract.

    12 is correct on the dead money they would have to eat if they cut or traded him & that's because a ton of his guaranteed money is in the form of roster bonuses which would go to the acquiring team.

    2018 roster bonus - $6 mil
    2019 roster bonus - $12mil
    2020 roster bonus - $11 mil
    2021 roster bonus - $10mil.

    Cousins just might be available as a UFA next year.

    He was franchised at $23 mil this year & if they don't get a deal done with him & want to franchise him again next year he will get 120% of that or 27.6 mil. That may prove to be prohibitive for the Skins

    Worth every penny.

    He's actually not too expensive for the aquiring team, I'd take luck with Morton running the ofence, fix the OL fast though

    Cousins is better than pope thinks, but not as good as cousins thinks.

    Good player.

    Not worth what he'll be looking to get paid. Or what the Redskins will ask for in a trade.

    Pass.

    PLEASE.
