On ESPN Radio 980 yesterday morning, Michael Wilbon mentioned that the Colts were still considering taking Robert Griffin III instead of Andrew Luck. Wilbon said that he talked to some people over the weekend that have knowledge of the Colts situation, and says that there is divided opinion in Indianapolis.
“And I’m told that the main reason they are is because there are people in the organization and people they consult — and now you consult all these different people about something a s important as a number one overall draft pick, a maybe once in a generation pick. And they are of the opinion, some people that are having input into this pick, that RGIII is better in the pocket.
Then, this morning, Jim Irsay and his merry Twitter account said that the team had a private workout with Andrew Luck today, and that they tried to schedule a private workout with Robert Griffin III, but his agent declined.
Why would Griffin’s agent decline a request from the team with the first overall pick for a private session? Is it because he thinks it is a smokescreen (and I’m not sure why the Colts would need to do that, no one can get in front of them)? Or does he prefer his client end up in Washington because he views the Colts’ rebuilding situation as worse, and the money difference thanks to the rookie wage scale is not as much a factor?
Either way, if Griffin III does end up going to Indianapolis instead of Washington, then these thongs I bought might be a collector’s item.
