RGIII lobbied Redskins to take Baylor teammate Josh Gordon in supplemental draft

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

RG3 tried to get the Washington Redskins to select his Baylor teammate and current Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, when he entered the supplemental draft.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III lobbied hard in an attempt to get the Redskins to select Griffin's teammate at Baylor, wide receiver Josh Gordon, when he entered the supplemental draft in July. Instead the Cleveland Browns ended up with Gordon.

Gordon said he talked to Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and believes the Redskins may have selected him if the Browns didn't pick him up when they did in the second round of the supplemental draft.

In 2010 at Baylor, Gordon caught 42 passes for 714 yards and seven touchdowns with Griffin as his quarterback. In his rookie season, Gordon leads the Browns with 42 receptions for 732 yards and five touchdowns.

When asked if he thinks the Browns should have put together a package similar to what the Redskins did to get RG3, Gordon said it would have been a lot, but that the Redskins got a good player. "Everything happened the way it should have happened," Gordon said.
