The Dallas Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins are reportedly exploring a unique trade scenario to potentially solve their quarterback questions.
Rapoport added the 49ers have inquired about Cousins, while the Redskins are discussing Romo with the Cowboys receiving draft picks.
However, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported a Cowboys official said the team has not been contacted about a trade that would send Romo to the Redskins.
The Redskins have yet to sign Cousins to a long-term extension, opting instead to give him the exclusive franchise tag for the second consecutive season.
While Washington's front office still has time to decide on working out a deal with Cousins, indications are he wouldn't mind playing for the 49ers if the Redskins trade him.

Per ESPN's John Keim, Cousins "loved" playing for San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan when the two were in Washington together in 2012-13.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys have to decide what they are going to do with Romo. He is expecting the team to release him at some point, per ESPN's Ed Werder. The rise of rookie Dak Prescott last season secured Dallas' future at the position, while also making Romo expendable.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told 105.3 The Fan (h/t Dallas Morning News) last month he was unsure of what he wanted to do with Romo.
"This is what it is," Jones said. "It's a juncture we have to address. I don't know how ultimately we will resolve this and nobody should be alarmed because you don't have all the answers. There are some issues here that you just have to see how the cards are playing. But we'll work to this."
Romo does have a $14 million salary and $24.7 million cap hit next season, per Spotrac, that could complicate any potential trade scenario for the Cowboys. Washington would be paying Cousins $23.9 million under the franchise tag in 2017, so it's a workable situation if a trade can be agreed upon.
The 49ers are just trying to find a long-term solution at quarterback. Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are entering their first season with the franchise. They own the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft, but may not be sold on the potential of the top quarterbacks available to select them that high.
