NFL Rumors: RG3 Pushing For Redskins To Select Josh Gordon

The buzz surrounding the stock of former Baylor WR Josh Gordon has been increasingly steadily over the last few weeks among NFL front-office personnel as well as media members looking to generate some off-season traffic.

One long-time fan of Gordon is apparently his former college QB, Robert Griffin III, who is reportedly pushing the Washington Redskins front office to pick his former teammate in the NFL's Supplemental Draft on Thursday:

Griffin needs more weapons in Washington to accentuate his skills in the passing game, and Gordon's elite combination of size and speed could presumably help in that department.

However, this is one of the times that the Redskins mortgaging their future drafts to move up and select RG3 become a problem. If the team gives up another high-round pick in 2013 in order to take Gordon, they will have very little room to maneuver this off-season to fill whatever holes (and there will be some) the team has after RG3's rookie year.
