OT: Redskins and Rams trade

Submitted by RollDamnTide on March 9th, 2012 at 10:47 PM

 

 
Washington Redskins traded three first-round draft picks and a second-round pick to St. Louis for second overall pick in a trade first reported by @JayGlazer.

 

Umm, cough. 

Lets break this down:

Washington gets: St. Louis's 2nd over all pick this year

St. Louis gets: Washington's Next 3 1st round picks, and a 2nd rounder.

 

Got it. Nothing to see here, just Daniel Snyder being Daniel Snyder.

 

EDIT: And with the 1st and 2nd overall picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select.

Sweet.   Now I can stop being excited about the Browns getting RGIII and maybe actually having a playmaker in Cleveland for once.  

Now....could we trade the 4th pick in the draft for the 28th pick and two 5th rounders?  We LOVE 5th and 6th rounders........

I heard a rumor about the 4th and a 6th rounder for Freeney, which I don't like but I've heard it. My list would go Richardson (if we dont resign Hillis) Blackmon, then Claiborne. Tomorrow I'll probably flip to Blackmon first but I figure we can get a good big WR with the 2nd 1st rounder.

he was single handedly responsible for destroying the entire league. He led a crusade of 2 bit owners to move from summer football to fall and immediately filed an antitrust lawsuit against the tv networks for favoring the NFL. He eventually won the lawsuit and was awarded a record winfall of $1. The USFL was no more.

RDT, you just like our Michigan family.  I love that you are so at home with us that you are now posting random bits of news onour site just because you want to sahre with us.  Tell us the truth, you have started wearing more blue in the past few months.  By the time September rolls around, you might find yourself humming The Victors.

IMO

RG3 will go on to be a much better QB than even Randall Cunnigham was (Im only comparing athletic type QBs)....the kid is smart and marketable and he is going to be a:

FUCKING STAR

in the NFL.  RG3 will be 3X as big as Cam Cameron....because he is in Washington...(or will be)...and he has more upside and doesnt have the slimy past.

Dan Snyder will make MILLIONS on RG3....and that team will always be at least competitive with a stud playmaker at QB.

Snyder may make some mistakes...but this is not one of them.  Id trade 3 1st rounders and a 2nd for this for sure.  

4 unknown players who could range anywhere in the first 64 of their upcoming drafts...

for a freaking sure thing.

Done Deal.

Go back and read what I wrote again.

I never said Cam "could not play"... but whatever...

Point is RG3 will be a bigger STAR in the NFL...

 

and dont fucking kid yourself if you dont think the NFL wants more star power.

Will RGIII translate to the NFL? Maybe. Will he bust horribly? Maybe. There are no more valuable draft picks than NFL first round selections. To not have one for 2 straight years, and be without a very valuable probable high 2nd is highly questionable. If RGIII busts, Washington has bought their way into 10 years of NFL hell.

no joke its hoke

no offense RTD but as a lifelong Skins fan i dont mind this move. we have waste draft picks for a decade and havent had a future qb in longer time than that. They would have been the "same ol skins" if they would have done what some wanted and get Manning. Give me RG3 over a 36 year old qb with 4 neck surgeries any day.

I feel sorry for RGIII. There is no way they are going to be any good without any first rounders for 3 years... that's a horrible plan. Wow. Way to fill one hole by creating many many more.
