RG3 deal fueled Rams' rebuilding efforts
April 22, 2013
By The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The pricey Robert Griffin III trade was worth it to the Washington Redskins. The St. Louis Rams consider themselves the real winners in the deal, and they're not done getting paid off.
The Rams gave up the second overall pick in 2012 to move down just four spots. In return, they got a massive influx of young talent including a pair of rookie starters in defensive tackle Michael Brockers and cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
In addition to their 16th pick Thursday night, the Rams have the Redskins' 22nd selection plus Washington's first-rounder in 2014.
They still need to stockpile a 7-8-1 team that made a six-win improvement under new coach Jeff Fisher. They could look to replace departed running back Steven Jackson, but just as easily could repeat last April's maneuvering.
