08:07 AM ET 01.25 | While speculation persists about just where Peyton Manning will play next season, it may be instructive to note his own say in the process. He'd dictate which team or situation makes the most sense for him, and he's earned the right to be picky. Washington's offensive line is every bit as bad as Indy's and the roster is deprived of skill players. The Redskins also have a history of turmoil and instability. And don't forget, in the NFC East, he'd be facing little brother Eli twice a year. I don't see it, and execs I talk to expect Washington to make a move for St. Louis' No. 2 overall slot in the draft, and select whichever quarterback doesn't go first overall (at this point, it looks like [Robert Griffin III]).

Griffin's not a bad option for the Skins. They need someone who can escape the rush until the O-line gets rebuilt.

I predict that Andrew Luck will NOT be suiting up in DC next year ;)

Of course they are, only way they get RG3 since he wouldn't get past Cleveland. But I wouldn't be at all surprised if they opt for Peyton Manning, when he becomes available, instead though.

Holy Crap!!!Rex Grossman isn't the answer?

RG3 should pull a Payton and tell them he won't play for the skins if selected. That franchise needs new ownership before they can make it back.

Yes, but the question is, What QB can Washington get that will suck beyond belief?

Right here... Why I think there is a good chance they don't trade up and make Matt "2 games started" Flynn the highest paid QB in the league. Anything Washington does at QB, is the wrong thing to do.

stl rams need alot of players, they have no depth @ any position and alot of starters are 2nd or 3rd string on any other team. this would be a great deal for both clubs. we need extra picks to secure a starting corner, wr, ol and an anchor @ olb. so in other words...LET'S MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Neither is Shanahan.

What can the 'Skins offer that the Rams want? Kerrigan and/or Orakpo and/or choices?

True. He was the first to do it, and without his Father playing QB.
