  • McNabb to Redskins - How will this affect the draft?

    Obviously, with the Redskins giving up their second round pick in the 2010 draft (as well as a third or fourth rounder in 2011), it limits the Skins ability to trade up for Sam Bradford as their QB of the future. I cant imagine the Rams doing a trade with Washington when the Rams arent going to receive an extra second rounder in this draft out of it.

    That said, the Redskins now have a legitimate starter in McNabb, but still have a tender on the table for Jason Campbell, which they could recind rather than keep him in DC as a backup. If Campbell does become available, do the Rams look at him as another option at QB and maybe have Bradford sit for a year?

    If anything i think this trade pretty much confirms that Bradford will be a Ram, as it was only a serious trade offer that would have changed that and i dont see that as being possible now, since Washington were the most likely trade partners. The Redskins will likely take a tackle like Russell Okung to protect McNabb, if he is available.

    interesting, i also wonder what this means as far as jason campbell, the guy can play football and could probably be easily had at this point. behind a real o-line and some receivers with size who actually run routes, he could improve upon his best numbers which aren't bad to begin with.

      I was over at the Redskins forum, and the fans over there were not happy at all about the move. They are afraid he will get hurt early in the year, and cant believe they gave up what they did for him.

        Well I guess the whole Bradford/Clausen workouts don't mean much anymore.

          The Redskins trading to #1 rumors are officially over!

          The Redskins taking Clausen is officially not a possibility

          However if taylor Mays falls the Eagles might trade up in the 2nd round with the rams to get him before the lions go on the clock

            We're not adding any more QB's to the roster besides Bradford. We have enough money tied up in the QB position.

            All this does is nuke our efforts to shop the pick. Which means our front office was outmanuevered once again.

              They dealt their second rounder, not their first. Does it make a Clausen pick unlikey? Yes. Not a possibility? No.

                Unless of course they didn't want to shop the pick.

                  Yeah, It looks like if we take the rookie QB, we are going to pay "number 1 money" for him.

                      Re: McNabb to Redskins - How will this affect the draft?

                      The trade essentially removes the only trade partner that may have been willing to move up for Bradford. And perhaps the Redskins really weren't that willing to do so anyways, since they'd rather have McNabb at the expense of their 2010 second rounder and a pick next year.

                      Shower is right - the Rams may not have been that serious about shopping the pick. Maybe their asking price was through the roof, and the Redskins just weren't having any of it. McNabb for a second and a third next year probably makes more sense to Washington than Bradford for their first this year, first next year, and maybe more (pure speculation on my part to illustrate the point).

                      Ultimately, this could very well secure the Rams into the first overall pick. I didn't think the chances of a trade down were good to begin with, but now they're even worse. The Rams will likely stay put and take their player of choice.

                        What this does IMO is allows us to draft Suh #1, be in talks with tampa have them draft Bradford at #3 then swap the rights.

                          well this move means we pretty much got Bradford..(which im cool with) but doesnt rule out a trade down..although i think the Lions will end up taking Okung the Bucs may get nervous about them taking Suh, so they may want to trade up to above the Lions to get him..they probably dont think that we will take Suh but with us being the only team picking ahead of the Lions they`ll still may have to trade upto our spot to get him..we go to the 3rd overall and pick Bradford knowing that the two teams picking above us have no intention of selecting him.

                            Possible, but not likely. With it fairly evident the Rams want Bradford, and the Lions possibly going to take Okung, it puts the Bucs in a position to draft one of the top two DTs but without giving anything up for them. Even if the Rams were to take Suh to try and push Tampa into a trade, the Bucs could be happy to just take Eric Berry at #3 if the two DTs are gone since they need safety help

                              i dont see that happening as i dont see the Bucs being unhappy if they ended up with Gerald McCoy

                                The Way We Hear It

                                By Eric Edholm

                                There is a growing sense* that the Redskins are not happy with their current draft position at No. 10 and could seek to slide up or down on Draft Day. What they do will depend on what they are targeting and who is still available.

                                Unless they are interested in moving up to No. 1 to draft, say, QB Cam Newton, the Redskins might allow the first few picks of the draft to take shape and then try to make their move. Some have speculated that they are interested in Missouri QB Blaine Gabbert, which would make sense. The Redskins might have to move ahead a number of teams Cincinnati at No. 4, Arizona at No. 5 to begin with in order to draft him.

                                What hurts them is their lack of ammo regarding this year's picks. They lack third- and fourth-round selections because of trades (including the Donovan McNabb deal), although the Redskins never have shied away from mortgaging future picks to get the player they most crave.

                                The Redskins tried like crazy to trade with the Rams, holders of the No. 1 pick last year, to get Sam Bradford. That failed, as did their attempt to land Mark Sanchez the year prior. Having failed previously on these fronts might only fuel the brass' desire to get their guy this time around.

                                If that option is not possible, the Redskins could opt to move back in the draft perhaps a smarter, more economical move. Recouping one or more picks would be a smart play, considering the number of needs this team has. Mike Shanahan would love to come out of this draft with his QB of the future, but he might not have the pieces needed to get it done.

                                Either way, don't be shocked if the Redskins don't end up picking at No. 10.

                                * "There is a growing sense" .. That's a new way to express speculation .. Anyway, there is some merit to the "speculation" that Washington may wish to make a move, as they have a history of doing so or at least trying .. If they move up, could that help us? I wonder .. If they were to move down, the Rams might be an interested partner depending who is still on the board at the 10 spot. This scenario will add to the suspense and drama on draft day ..

                                Rams - Redskins The RG3 Trade
                                by Rambos
                                First things first, it’s still way to soon to tell how the deal will payoff for both teams. That said after the first year most fans and media did not even want to wait and see what the Rams did with the boatload of picks. That was due to the great play of RG3 at the time. He was playing at such a high level it seemed the Redskins made the right move and the Rams missed out.

                                Now in the middle of the second year of the trade the impacts on the teams are polar opposite. The Rams are the youngest team in the NFL and the organization and fan base for the most part is thrilled with the direction of the team, even though they may not be thrilled with the team’s current record. The Rams are getting contributions from many of the players so far drafted from the trade.

                                The best player may have yet to arrive in St Louis as this year pick will be far higher then the 22nd pick or the 14th pick where the Rams selected Alec Ogletree and Michael Brockers.

                                The Redskins on the other hand maybe in for a coaching change and a new direction going forward. RG3 has brought a huge amount of talent with him but he also has brought a spotlight that burns bright. There seems to be more then the normal issues coming out of the Redskins locker room. Players and coaches seem to be in the media saying all the wrong things during this down turn. RG3 played like a super hero last year but this year he has gone from hero to zero in the eyes of many. Some fans and media calling for him to be benched and some having buyer’s remorse are think they should trade him while he has value to recoup some of those picks. This is silly for the most part as all young QBs need to develop and RG3 is no different. Many fans have high expectations and sometime are a bit unrealistic, we Ram fan know about that. But when you give up three ones and a second that has to come with far more pressure then the norm.

                                RG3 may become the elite QB the Redskins mortgaged their future for, we will have to wait and see. But in the short term he now has a big question mark with his play, leadership and health.

                                As far as the Rams are concerned it’s hard to imagine they won’t maximize that last pick. Who knows they may turn it into more then one player as they have done in each of the last two drafts.

                                Only time will tell how this plays out, but it does look like the pendulum has swung to the Rams side for the moment.

                                Some Stats relating to the RGIII Trade that Might Surprise You
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                Did you know...

                                That since the RGIII trade:

                                The Rams (14-17-1) have a better regular season record than the Redskins (13-19)?

                                Sam Bradford has a better record as a starter (10-12-1) than RGIII (12-16)?

                                Sam Bradford has more 4th Quarter comebacks (5) than RGIII (4)?

                                Sam Bradford has the same number of game winning drives (4) as RGIII (4)?

                                Sam Bradford has averaged more TD passes/game (1.52) than RGIII (1.29)?

                                Sam Bradford has averaged more passing yards/game (234.3) than RGIII (228.7)?

                                I, for one, found a number of those stats to be surprising. They certainly support the notion that the Rams were the clear cut winners in the trade (which, of course, won't be complete until after this year's draft - at a minimum). Anyone who tells you otherwise is either a Redskins fan, or is just not paying attention.

                                McNabb traded to Redskins
                                by MrOrange
                                Pretty shocking news to see a trade go down like this between division rivals. This should end any talks about McNabb being traded to us.


                                Reported by Adam Schefter on espn.com:


                                The Philadelphia Eagles have reached agreement on a blockbuster intra-division trade that will send perennial Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb to the Washington Redskins, according to multiple sources close to the situation.

                                The two sides still must finalize language, but McNabb is now headed to Washington. Compensation is not yet known, but it is likely to include Washington's 2010 second-round pick.

                                The move means the Redskins now have a new starting quarterback and the Eagles have a new one as well in Kevin Kolb. Michael Vick is now in line as the team's backup.

                                Sources said McNabb's contract, which has one year and $11.2 million left on it, scared off several other teams. McNabb is due a $6.2 million roster bonus on May 5 and is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2010 season.

                                At the league meetings, head coach Andy Reid said the Eagles were listening to offers for all three quarterbacks, including 11-year veteran McNabb, who quickly said on his Web site that he wanted a quick resolution to the trade conversations.
