After securing the second overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft in a trade with the St. Louis Rams and the rights to draft Baylor star quarterback Robert Griffin the 3rd, the Washington Redskins front office and owner Daniel Snyder decided to celebrate the trade by taking a well-deserved trip.
The folks at ESPN's NFL Countdown explain the rest during Monday's show per NFL insider Adam Schefter:
After the deal was completed, Snyder and the Washington Redskins front office took a trip to the Bahamas to celebrate the deal. Upon hearing of the Redskins trip to the Bahamas, the St. Louis Rams front office joked that maybe they didn't get enough in the deal.
Consider that RG3 might be the next best thing in the NFL, St. Louis probably should have gotten more.
BEST OF MAXIM
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon believes he’ll be ready to go next week against the Rams after suffering a right foot injury that forced him to miss rest of Sunday’s win over the Saints.
“I’m feeling good. Should be good to go next week,” Garcon said. “We’ll get it checked on, I’ll be ready back for St. Louis.”
Garcon was a great free agent acquisition...
Prepare to be annoyed. For those of you who despise the whole "Tebowing" concept, a new phenomenon could soon bug you this football season. It's apparently called "Griffining." Robert Griffin III was impressive in his first career NFL start for the Redskins on Sunday, and among his many nifty plays was an 88-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon. RGIII actually...
Everyone gasped a little when Washington Redskins receiver Josh Morgan compared rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III to a near-great and two great veteran quarterbacks. It sounded a little too over-the-top.It is dangerous to draw conclusions from one game, oh but what a game. Morgan was so on the money about Griffin that you can call him prescient — a college word meaning, ...
Washington Redskins rookie safety Jordan Bernstine is out for the season with torn ligaments in his right knee.
Bernstine was injured on a kickoff in the fourth quarter of Washington's 40-32 win over the New Orleans Saints.
Bernstine was a seventh-round draft pick this year. His injury is another blow to an already depleted secondary. Brandon Meriweather is sidelined with sprained...
According to Rich Tandler of Comcast Sports Net, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has stated that running back Alfred Morris is their starter going forward.

Morris was very impressive during Sunday’s big win over the Saints.
Last week: 16 (+0)
There isn’t much that needs to be said. The Redskins went into New Orleans with a rookie quarterback and beat a Saints team that was undefeated at home last year. The defense is a bit of a concern, but then again, they were playing Drew Brees, and any potential Robert Griffin week to week inconsistencies are also a concern and very possible because...
Redskins rookie Alfred Morris started and handled a heavy workload in Week 1, carrying the ball 28 times for 96 yards and two touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Evan Royster and Roy Helu had two carries apiece. Don't go crazy trying to acquire Morris' services. Remember, Tim Hightower had 45 carries for 168 yards in the first two weeks last season.
RGIII stunned the Saints in his debut for the Redskins, and the Eagles need 4th quarter magic to beat the Browns. CHFF's Justin Henry breaks it down.
No doubt about it—Robert Griffin III started his career with a bang on Sunday, with 320 yards, 2 TD passes with no interceptions, and 10 rushes for 48 yards (the gaudy fantasy stats), not to mention a 73% completion percentage, a 139.9 QB rating and most importantly, a win.
The start (and the hype) remind me of a quarterback that I doubted coming into the league last year, and...
Washington Redskins – 40 New Orleans Saints – 32
By now I am sure you are aware that the Washington Redskins went marching into Saints territory and did something that no team was able to do last year — win in New Orleans — and did it in a rather strong fashion.
The much anticipated debut of Robert Griffin III lived up to everyone in Redskins Nation’s...
I don't think anybody saw this coming!Well, I'd suppose that the Redskins thought they could win, but I'm sure not in such a dominant fashion.The Washington Redskins marched into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the season opener, leaving the Saints and their fans in shockThe Redskins started the season off with a 40-32 victory over the Saints that frankly, wasn...
Rookie quarterbacks were the headliners of Week 1 — quick summary: Robert Griffin III was great, Andrew Luck didn’t suck, Brandon Weeden was worse...
