According to Fox Sports NFL guy Jay Glazer's Twitter account, the Redskins have acquired the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming draft from the Rams. The deal will become official on Tuesday, when the new NFL season begins.
Glazer writes on Twitter, "Major scoopage: Redskins have agreed to a trade w Rams for #2 pick of draft. Rams and Skins swap first rounders this yr w Rams also getting 2 future #1s and additional picks."
There is absolutely zero doubt that Andrew Luck will go to the Colts with the first pick, and the Redskins will select Griffin No. 2.
Hyperbole aside, Washington D.C. has become one of the least enviable spots in the league outside of Oakland, Cincy and Phoenix. RGIII may have turned Baylor into a winner, but not even Joe Gibbs has been able to do anything but lose with the Redskins under Snyder.
UPDATE: Per the suggestion of a Big Mac Blog reader, I have added the Cowboys to the list of NFL graveyards because of a certain front office member who shall remain nameless.
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan hasn't had a bonafide QB since he arrived in D.C.; he had a washed-up Donovan McNabb in 2010. Shanahan tried Rex Grossman last year.
Washington and Redskins nation will love and adore RGIII, and he will win his introductory press conference at the team's facility on draft day. After that? Godspeed.
