So the hated Redskins are giving away a fortune for the opportunity to draft Robert Griffin III next month…
I get the idea of giving up some value because RGIII could be a great player in the NFL for a very long time.
But they gave up too much. They just gave up three cornerstone players (2012 second round, 2013 first round and 2014 first round) for one player. The swap is what it is.
What would I have given up? I could see giving up the swap of this years picks and then next years first rounder. That’s it. And I know they would never move me into the position of a top five pick in any draft, but it’s all I can see giving up for one player.
Don’t think I am not pissed about the Skins getting a franchise player. I would have loved to see RGIII in a Cowboys uniform because I think he’s going to be a great QB for a very long time. But all players are one play away from never playing again. Now raise that risk just a tad because of the position he plays. And also think about this particular player who missed some time last season after suffering a concussion.
The Cowboys better find some pas rushers ASAP. Vick, Manning and RGIII. The NFC East is full of talented QB’s.
