In a pre-draft blockbuster trade, the St. Louis Rams have agreed in principle to send the second overall pick in this year's draft to the Washington Redskins for three first-round draft picks and a second-round pick, according to a source in Cleveland familiar with the terms of the deal.

Wow! Didn’t expect that to happen so soon.
Man, this stuff is always risky for unproven talent! Well the Skins are desperate enough to try it I guess.
These deals never work out for the Skins. Everybody screams “Playoffs, baby!” until the season starts and the team is mathematically eliminated by Halloween.
My opinion is that RG3 ain’t all that and giving up all those high draft picks just dumb. Then again I’m not a Skins fan so whatever..
Having a QB with 4.4 speed is a good way to deal with the pass rush. The NFC East just got more interesting. GO BLUE!
As a Giants fan (thank you very much), hate them but this may be the best move since Gibbs the First.
I am actually not sold on Luck.
Hopefully it will take him 4 years to hit his stride and Eli can win another by then.
I am, for one reason: NFL rules now better protect quarterbacks and favor more offense. Andrew Luck has the (pun intended!) the very good fortune of being drafted into the NFL just when the rules favor highly intelligent quarterbacks. When most of the recent quarterbacks drafted out of college are doing quite well thanks to the current NFL rules, a standout like Luck will do extremely well.
I also think that Robert Griffin III will also do very well because he too has the intelligence to play in the current NFL.
With the team the Nationals have built, the Skins had to do something to get attention.
They may well have overpaid.
The best part of being a Giants fan is realizing the Skins will never be a threat while Snyder is their owner and the Cowboys will never beat the Giants in the playoffs with Romo as QB
Fellow G-man fan here. How epic was that win? Still feeling the buzz.
Go Big Blue!
Now if we could top it off with a Stanley Cup for the Rangers and the 28th title for the Bronx Bombers, that would be a uperb year for New York.
Miracle on Ice, Reagan, LT, Messier’s guarantee, multiple Bronx Bomber Championships, and two last minute drives by Eli against the Pats to win Super Bowls. I have witnessed many good things since I was a wee lad.
Captain Willis with the cortisone knees.
As a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, I am very unhappy to see Fisher get 2 more 1st round picks. The Rams are going to be a very good team in short order.
We better resign Rogers and Goldson.
SF fan. Williams 2 fumbles still haunt me, especially the kickoff bouncing off his knee.
Hell, if just one of the 2 interceptions Manning threw had been held onto, the 49ers would have won.
The first one, Goldson knocked his teammate Brown out of the and that lead to Tramaine Brock having to take over (the #4 corner), who is the guy who gave up the go-ahead touchdown to Manningham.
Then after that, Goldson and Rogers converged on the same poorly thrown Manning pass, knowing the INT out of each other’s hands.
Oh well, I have to give it up to the Giants for their win and I have to say I have a LOT LOT more respect for Manning than I used to. The 49ers defense absolutely beat the living snot out of him for 4 quarters and he never quit or make a key mistake, but kept his composure and engineered drives. He is one tough son of a gun, I can tell you that.
As a Cowboys fan....noooooo!
Perhaps RGIII will refuse to play in DC.
