There are some wondering if Indy will pull a surprise on draft day and take Baylor’s Robert Griffin III, a move that would send shockwaves through the nation’s capital where the RG-3 “Welcome To Washington” party is all set to go. The mere thought of that possibility not pleasant to the Radskins Nation, especially after the team gave away a truckload of draft picks to specifically move up for Griffin.
Apparently, the Heisman Trophy winner is feelin the love in Washington, as he refused to perform a workout for the Indianapolis Colts, who will be working out the presumed No. 1 pick Andrew Luck of Stanford on Tuesday. Who can blame Griffin, why should he? What’s there to win? If history is any indication, he might get more money from Dan Snyder than Luck could ever garner in Indiana. Plus, he already knows he’s going to Washington, and the Skins’ want him badly, so bravo to RG-3, smart move.
Bill Parcells is apparently interested in taking the New Orleans Saints job in Sean Payton’s absence, but the coach is now appealing his one-year ban from football following the “Bounty-Gate” scandal, and awaits his hearing on Tuesday.
Tebow-Mania already causing controversy in New York as Nike & Reebok fought over production of Tebow’s new Jets jersey, prompting a judge’s order of Reebok to cease. Wow, and this is the back-up QB? Oh, by the way, Denver CB Champ Bailey says Tebow may say all the right things on camera, but he wants that starting job in New York. The Big Apple media is gonna love this.
