There’s no Guarantee the Rams will get the better of the RGIII Trade

The Washington Redskins season is tanking.  And there are some pointing out that the St. Louis Rams who own the Redskins 1st round pick in the 2014 draft will end up with the better end of the trade for Robert Griffin III.  And while it may seem that way right now, it still too early to determine who will win the trade.

As of right now, the Redskins are the winners.  Why?  Because they got an NFC East division title and a home playoff game out of the trade.  That doesn’t happen for the Redskins without RGIII.  Where as the Rams had a losing season last year, and appear to headed for another one this season.  So the benefits of the trade haven’t kicked in for them yet.

Now that may all change depending on who they pick with the Redskins first rounder this year.  It’s possible they may get an impact player that puts them over the top, but like I said there’s no guarantee of that.  However, many people are making the assumption based on RGIII’s play this season that the Redskins are regretting the trade.  But I beg to differ.

The Redskins have a franchise QB, that will be in place for the future who they can build around.  And while Sam Bradford played well this season before his knee injury, I think the Rams will be taking a long hard look at the QB’s at the top of the 2014 draft for fear that Bradford may not return at his level this season, or for the hope that they can upgrade the position.

So assuming that the Redskins are getting the short end of the stick on this trade is a bit premature.  Some people tend to make long-term judgments based on what’s happening right now.  But this is a fluid situation and just because it seems the Redskins gave up too much for Robert Griffin III, doesn’t mean it’s always going to be that way.

    Yes there is. The Rams have Sam Bradford and good back-ups. Why is everybody worried about quarterbacks when the Rams need defense, receivers and players that don’t commit penalties?

      The Rams have already had a large number of high draft picks in recent seasons, and yet they are still not a winner. I don’t think one more player will change that. They are still in the NFC West, and overcoming the 49ers and the Seahawks will be hard for the Reams regardless of who they draft with the Redskins pick.
