Robert Griffin III Trade: Washington Still Interested In Peyton Manning Despite Acquiring No. 2 Pick, According To Report

The Washington Redskins reportedly acquired the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft from the St. Louis Rams for first-round picks in 2012, 2013 and 2014, as well as a second-round pick in 2012. The expectation is that the Redskins will use the pick to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. This led to one report suggesting, understandably, that the Redskins had taken themselves out of the Peyton Manning sweepstakes.

However, that may not be the case after all. In what may be one of the juiciest reports yet, ESPN's Adam Schefter suggests the Redskins will still try to go after Manning to pair with Griffin.

Robert Griffin III and Peyton Manning? That certainly seems like a crazy fantasy scenario. However, this all assumes Manning would even be interested in playing for a team that has a high draft pick waiting in the wings.
