Trade talk has been going on since the Redskins 5th overall pick was finalized. Well now it's draft, and we're at the peak of lying season so the rumors are heating up. Check back here throughout the day as we follow all the rumors involving the Redskins, and some others that will affect what happens at #5. Who is trading up for Marcus Mariota? How much is Chip Kelly really willing to give up? Who wants the Redskins pick? Stay tuned...
Redskins Trade Talk:
Redskins have received inquiries from other teams about a trade for the fifth pick, but nothing serious or imminent yet, source says.— Mike Jones (@MikeJonesWaPo) April 30, 2015
3 teams have contacted the #Redskins about trading for No. 5, source says. Another source: If skins want pass rusher, can't fall below 8— John Keim (@john_keim) April 30, 2015
If Fowler and Williams are gone, could see Washington bailing out of 5 ... but not too far out. https://t.co/g6gTlfuqJv— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) April 30, 2015
Plenty of teams scrambling to get in the Top 5 via the Redskins, while teams from No. 6 (Jets) on would like to move back. Top-heavy draft— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 30, 2015
Dante Fowler or OL:
I'm told the Redskins are planning and hoping to take Dante Fowler Jr. at 5 tonight. If not, look for them to go OL. #Redskins #NFLDraft— Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna) April 30, 2015
FWIW, In talking to one #Redskins high level source, they said they are not locked in on any one player. Open to multiple guys & trades.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania980) April 30, 2015
Redskins Interested in Bud Dupree After Trade Down?
Washington still looking to trade down http://t.co/lt3hZdoaO5— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) April 30, 2015
The goal could be to slide down far enough to get more picks but to still have a realistic shot at linebacker Bud Dupree. With Jameis Winston and Mariota most likely to be the first two players gone and only two more picks to go before Washington is on the clock, McCloughan will be able to dangle Fowler, receiver Amari Cooper, and/or defensive lineman Leonard Williams.
Eagles Trading for Marcus Mariota?
.@Tim_McManus told @975Mornings that he thinks the package that could get it done is "Two 1sts, a 2nd rounder, Cox, Kendricks & Curry."— 975TheFanatic (@975TheFanatic) April 30, 2015
Interesting twist to Mariota chase - if Eagles beat Browns and get to 2nd overall, and Bradford not part of that deal (doubt he'd be)...— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) April 30, 2015
Then the price for Bradford drops. Browns had been shopping a 1st rounder for him but could end up landing for 2 or less if Chip gets Marcus— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) April 30, 2015
Browns trading for Marcus Mariota?
#Browns do not want to surrender their first-rounder in 2016 to land Marcus Mariota.— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) April 30, 2015
#Browns Mike Pettine told NFL Network's Andrea Kremer: "Opinions on Marcus Mariota in this building are varied.''— Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) April 30, 2015
Three first round picks only STARTS the conversation, folks. No cheap moves here. https://t.co/KohE8lkOL1— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) April 30, 2015
More Competition for Mariota
In addition to Browns and Eagles, I've heard the #Jets (6th pick) and #Rams (10th) have also been in discussions with #Titans.— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) April 30, 2015
According to @RapSheet the @ChicagoBears are in contact with Titans to move up to 2nd overall to draft Mariota. #Bears #2015NFLDraft— Shayne L. Marsaw (@wasram) April 30, 2015
