Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has hinted may look to take with Kirk Cousins with him from the Washington Redskins.

Cousins was announced as the Browns' OC earlier this month, and has already been speaking about his difficult relationship and working with Robert Griffin III while he was with the Redskins.

"I’m not going to say it was easy," Shanahan told "Nothing’s easy when you go through something like that."

However now he is keen to move on the past and focus on the future - which could well see Cousins follow him from Cleveland to Washington.

Cousins, who provides cover for RGIII in Washington, has reportedly spoken to the Redskins management team about the possibility of a trade that would see him get more games next season.

Shanahan is seemingly open to the possibility of working with Cousins again - although was keen to avoid infringing on the NFL rules against tampering.

"I think Kirk's a hell of a player," he told WKRK Cleveland on Thursday.

"... He had some good moments, and he had some moments I think he'll learn from, but I think Kirk did a good job for us and really was a good backup player for us out there."

According to the Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot however, it is unlikely that the Browns will consider opening talks with the Redskins over a potential trade.
