NFL Free Agency 2012: Robert Griffin III Trade Key To Pierre Garcon's Signing, According To Report

The impending signing of free agent wide receiver Pierre Garcon is cause for optimism with Washington Redskins fans, but according to a report by NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, it would not have been made possible without the Redskins' trade to the Rams to get the No. 2 overall draft pick to presumably draft quarterback Robert Griffin III.

I don't blame Garcon for this, he would have been a great fit for the Chargers with Philip Rivers as his quarterback. But now it appears that he will be the target for Griffin in Washington.
