According to a report from NFL Network contributor Jay
Glazer, The Washington Redskins reached an agreement Friday night
with the St. Louis Rams to acquire the No. 2 draft pick in next
month's NFL draft, with which they are widely expected to select
Heisman-winning Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. The Redskins
gave up their first round picks in the 2012, 2013 and 2014 for the
Rams pick, according to the report.
It is believed that four teams were trying to trade for the right
to draft RGIII, including the Cleveland Browns, who reportedly
submitted the second-best offer for the pick. Washington made its
offer late Thursday night, when the team realized that Peyton
Manning had ruled them out as a potential next team. Washington
moves up to the second pick in the draft from No. 6, ahead of all
other teams who might have interest in Griffin, unless Indianapolis
makes a surprise move, leaving Stanford QB Andrew Luck on the table
for the Redkins. Indianapolis is expected to draft Luck to replace
Manning, who they released earlier this week.
