New, 1 comment

The Washington Redskins have agreed to a trade with the St. Louis Rams for the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, according to a report from Fox's Jay Glazer. The Skins will be giving up three first round picks, according to Glazer, who tweeted the scoop late Friday night.

Via @JayGlazer:

"Major scoopage: Redskins have agreed to a trade w Rams for #2 pick of draft. Rams and Skins swap first rounders this yr w Rams also getting 2 future #1s and additional picks. Story coming on fox sports dot com"

The Skins were one of a handful of teams bidding for the No. 2 pick, which will almost certainly be used to draft Baylor quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.

Adam Schefter supplemented Glazer's report, adding that a second round pick is also part of the deal.

UPDATE: Just a little bit of bookkeeping from ESPN.

The trade, first reported by FoxSports.com, cannot be signed off on, turned in and processed until the new league year starts Tuesday at 4 p.m. EST, but it is expected to become official then.
