They struck the deal Thursday. They hoped to hold it until Monday. They failed.
So now, they basically are saying, “Ahhh, f–k it.”
Each team has sent out a joint release from their respective General Managers, Les Snead (pictured) and Bruce Allen: “In order to execute each of our club’s plans for free agency and the upcoming draft, we have agreed to a trade between our two teams for the 2nd pick in the 2012 draft. We will submit this trade to the NFL for approval.”
The teams didn’t disclose the terms. It widely has been reported that the Redskins will surrender the sixth overall pick in the 2012 draft, a second-round pick in 2012, a first-round pick in 2013, and a first-round pick in 2014.
