Washington-redskins-new

The Washington Redskins made their big move of the offseason when they decided to trade a belly of early round picks, so that they could move in the the Rams #2 spot. The plan is to draft Robert Griffin III out of Baylor. Everyone wonders if he will start immediately, but that idea might have been eliminated when the Skins decided to bring back Rex Grossman on a 1-year deal, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

Grossman was the starting QB for the Redskins last season, and pretty much won the job after Mike Shanahan kicked Donovan McNabb to the curb in 2010. Grossman, like he did in Chicago, had moments, and very few of them. He has a 6-10 record in Washington, with 23 TDs against 24 INTs.

It shouldn’t be long for Grossman to implode and the fans to demand Griffin, especially after the Skins making it so obvious how much they are committed to the Heisman Trophy winner with what they gave up to move into position to draft him.

After a quick fling with the Washington Redskins, Eddie Royal married the San Diego Chargers for a three-year, $13 million contract with $6 million guaranteed.
