    Redskins pull the trigger, acquire No. 2 pick from the Rams

    'Skins deal for No. 2 pick, target RG3

    The Washington Redskins have agreed to a trade with the St. Louis Rams in which Washington will receive the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft — and plan to use it to select Heisman Trophy-winning Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III, FOXSports.com has learned.

    Washington is trading up from the No. 6 pick in the April 26 draft.

    The trade cannot become official until the start of the new league year, which begins next week (4 p.m. ET on Tuesday, the first official day of free agency).

    Under the deal, the Redskins and Rams will swap first-rounders this year, sources said. The Rams also will receive two future first-round picks and a second-round pick, Rams vice president and chief operating officer Kevin Demoff confirmed to The Sports Xchange after the story first broke.

    Redskins owner Dan Snyder had targeted Peyton Manning in free agency, but Manning did not reciprocate interest in playing in Washington. With Andrew Luck all but a foregone conclusion to go to the Colts at No. 1 overall, the Redskins then moved quickly to make sure they could acquire the other most coveted quarterback of the draft.

    Assuming the Redskins take RG3, the Minnesota Vikings would then be on the clock with the No. 3 pick. Their short list likely includes offensive tackle Matt Kalil of USC, wide receiver Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma State, and cornerback Morris Claiborne of LSU.

    What an awful, awful deal. Dan Snyder always find a way to do it- this time trading first round picks this year and the next two years, along with a second rounder this year, to trade up 4 spots for the second best QB in the draft. Unreal, no matter how talented RG3 is- I don't think you can justify doing this for a QB who has made the Pro Bowl in the NFL.

    Redskins are the new Oakland Raiders. Rams are going to be so good in five years(and probably this year too) NFC west teams get bad then good quickly. Just a matter of time before the Rams are that Cashcow team.

    Not so fast my friend. Sam Bradford is very fragile and who knows if those first rounders pan out. Redskins needed a franchise qb to build around. We suffered years of mediocrity at that position and desperately needed a upgrade. After watching a whole year of grossman I have no complaints on the move.

    3 Firsts and 1 second for an Unknown - What a fuckin' disasater trade. The Rams are saying thank you God.

    Watch this video of what happens when RG3 does when he doesn't have 10 seconds to run around and throw to wide open first round WRs running wide open down the field. The boy is in for some serious education once he gets to "The League."
