Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer has reported via Twitter that the St. Louis Rams have agreed to trade the 2nd pick in this year’s NFL draft to the Washington Redskins for the Redskins’ first round pick this year along with two future first round picks and additional picks.
It is widely believed that the Redskins are targeting Baylor’s sensational quarterback and reigning Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.
The Cleveland Browns had reportedly been in talks with the Rams as well, so it appears fans in Cleveland might have to wait at least another year to land a superstar franchise quarterback.
Glazer’s story will appear on foxsports.com shortly, so in the meantime here is the scoop via Twitter:
The price seems pretty steep, but as we’ve learned, you’re not going anywhere without a star under center (or out of the shotgun, as it may turn out with Griffin). The NFC East will be exciting next year, if nothing else.
