Redskins Could Be Looking at Josh Gordon in the Supplemental Draft


The Washington Redskins appear to be a likely potential landing spot for former Utah and Baylor WR Josh Gordon. A few days ago it was reported on twitter (via Evan Silva) that there was a N.F.C. East team that was looking at Josh Gordon and wouldn’t let him slip past the third round.

Now today’s Jason LaCanforna comes out with a report that the Robert Griffin III is pushing for the team to select Josh Gordon.


This move does not make a ton of sense to me. Yes the Redskins could still use more talent at the WR position and he has a rapport with their rookie quarterback, but the Redskins just went out and spent big money on Pierre Garcon and Josh Mogran. They also have Santana Moss who is still a good player. The Redskins also selected Leonard Hankerson in the second round of the 2011 N.F.L. draft and he looked potentially poised for a big year in 2012.

The Redskins also shipped future draft picks to the Rams in order to get Robert Griffin III and they have aging players they will have to soon replace and could use all of the draft picks for the future.

The Redskins, though, have never been a team afraid of making a move they think will help them today and worry about the future tomorrow.
