Washington Redskins Apparently Interested In Peyton Manning And Robert Griffin III

When the Washington Redskins dealt two future first-round picks to swap picks with the St. Louis Rams and move up to the No. 2 overall spot in the 2012 NFL Draft, it was widely assumed they were withdrawing from the Peyton Manning sweepstakes by putting themselves in position to select Baylor's Robert Griffin III.

However, the latest reports out of Washington indicate the the Redskins are still interested in obtaining both QB's, with Manning presumably serving as Griffin's tutor:

While Manning is extremely unlikely to be interested in replicating the situation he just departed in Indianapolis, it doesn't harm the Redskins to ask.

It also keeps Daniel Synder's name in the papers, which surely has nothing to do with it.
