It's speculation right now that even the Redskins are involved, but per the premise of the rumors, we kind of have to assume that the Redskins are out there alone.

Maybe the Rams have exactly zero serious offers right now for the second pick. Actually, this is even likely right now. Eskin only reported what the Redskins are willing to do, not what the Rams are going to get.

I have read other rumors that the Dolphins, Seahawks and Browns have talked to the Rams also. At this point it's all rumors but it sounded like you are stating as fact or at least that you have inside info that says that the skins are out there alone making outlandish trade offers.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

Free Agency will start soon and that is why there is all of this negotiating and price checking on draft trade scenarios. Teams have to decide what needs they will fill through FA and what they will try and fill in the Draft. With the potential of a good FA QB class, and only two great ones in the draft, teams like the Redskins really want to weigh all options before jumping to far into FA.
I would not believe any rumor, handshake or not. The teams that are interested in Luck and RGIII are all talking to Colts and Rams testing the waters of it would cost to move up. That is all.
I would not be surprised if Rams and Redskins have talk through a trade scenario or two or three and even might come to agreement on terms. That does not mean it will happen. While it is exciting to have twitter and hear the Redskins name in the thick of it. The Colts and Rams will most likely wait until seconds before the time deadline to place the pick in the draft, in order to maximize the value of any trade. The hope for the Rams is a Qb desperate team like us will offer more than market value. It will be a waiting game.
At least our FO is doing their job and getting all of the information they need to choose a FA plan. FA is first.

Looks like our QB coach is getting a head start.

To me it looks like he is scratching his head and saying, 'whelp... It could be worse, I could get drafted by the browns.'

So like the Eli Manning trade, if the Redskins get RG3 and become relevant again and he's everything you ask for, but Tannehill also goes on to become a top 10 QB in the NFL, then that's effectively losing the trade. Because even offering that much for RG3 isn't just an evaluation on Griffin, but Tannehill as well.
well yeah, I think thats why they do the deal. They dont believe Tannehill is a ready to be a starter in the league. They look at RG3 and say he is ready. The quarterback comparison, talent vs value/draft position was the absolute first question they answered. Of course its a statement on Tannehill. If he was of equal talent and NFL ready, they would take him at 6.

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

Can't help but think the Browns have the edge if they want them. The Rams would only lose 2 spots and can still pick who they want, and they get two first round picks instead of later round picks. In my mind, Cleveland just has a better potential offer if they want him.

Also can't help but wonder - we were 5-11, and the browns were 4-12. It's fun to have trounced the SuperBowl winning NY Giants x 2 last year, but it did end up costing us several draft picks if we do this deal for RG3.

Some people this weekend have apparently been saying, and I don't know where this is coming from, that there is a team (maybe Miami, maybe Seattle?) that is looking to move up above where the Redskins currently are to get Tannehill.

I mean I guess that means the Vikings spot at #3, which seems insanely high to get RT. But if that's the case then maybe the Redskins feel they need to make this move. The danger of course is in getting fooled by a bluff.

As for the Eskin rumors...he's an ass. But that's beside the point, that's not quite what I've heard (that's closer to what I'd heard to get Luck at 1) but it's certainly feasible.

Been out all day, but from what I've heard some more reports of Orakpo being part of a potential deal are starting to come out.

Heard we spent a lot of time with Kirk Cousins today as well. Anyone know if he ran today? If so, what was his 40?

Re: Yet Another QB Rumors Thread (Volume 9)

Smoot, based on what you know now, what scenarios do you think are most likely for us as far as getting a qb?
