    St. Louis trades the #2

    Read on ESPN.com this morning that St. Louis agreed to trade the #2 pick in the draft for Washington's #1 this year (6th overall), their #2 this year (39th overall) and their #1s in 2013 and 2014. That's more than the draft value chart, but big time QBs tend to throw that out of whack (plus Snyder is a moron (in general))

    At least RG III won't be in the AFC North now. I suspect the Browns will definitely make a big run at Matt Flynn from Green Bay now.

    That's an interesting question. Out of curiosity, I went and looked those up:

    Herschel Walker:
    A total of 18 players/picks were involved in this trade including Dallas getting three #1s and three #2s and giving up Walker, two #3s, one #5 and one #10. This deal was known as "The Great Train Robbery" and was instrumental in Dallas' dynasty in the 90s.

    Ricky Williams:
    Redskins trade first-round selection (No.5) to Saints for first- (No.12), third-, fourth-, fifth-, sixth- and seventh-rounders in 1999, and first- and third-rounders in 2000.

    I would argue that this trade (potentially) falls between those two, with the Walker trade more lopsided and the Willams a less lopsided, but they are both good comparisons. St. Louis did very well.

    Not with all the other (and better) receivers on the market right now. And WR don't command the same kind of premium as franchise QBs do.

    definite roll of the dice for the skins. but this could, and probably will hurt the skins more than in the long run than if they didn't get RG3 at all.

    we'll have to wait and see. but for now, SUCK IT CLEVELAND! HAHAHAHAHA

    For a Franchise QB, that is the ONLY time you should over pay for a player. You have no shot in the NFL today without a playmaker at the QB position.

    I don't think they gave too much because in reality, they swapped first round picks for this year, and then they give them next year and the year afterwards first round pick too. So they really are only giving up two # 1 picks.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    I works out better for the redskins<---(very racist team name) if they win the super bowl then it would be the 32nd pick next year .This deal is bad one and the league shouldn't approve it it is too lopsided but they will and the Rams will build the next mini dynasty.
