    As you might’ve heard if you read this blog, former Baylor receiver Josh Gordon, who had drawn some interest from the Dallas Cowboys in the weeks and days leading up to Thursday’s supplemental draft, was taken by the Cleveland Browns in the early second round.

    According to one report, Dallas wasn’t the only NFC East team interested in the services of the uber-athletic Gordon.

    Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports tweeted earlier this week, by way of Pro Football Talk, that the Washington Redskins’ new quarterback Robert Griffin III had appealed to the bigwigs around Redskins Park to make a play for his former Baylor teammate prior to the supplemental draft.

    Whether Griffin III made such a push, or to what degree, it doesn’t matter much now. But judging by his remarks to HogsHaven in response to a question about whether Gordon could be a successful NFL player, again via PFT, we doubt RGIII is losing any sleep over the Redskins’ inability to land his former teammate.

    “I mean, it’s up to him. Whether he wants to make it or not,” Griffin said. “I can’t say whether he’s going to be successful or not be successful. It’s just to him and what he wants to do to leave his legacy.”
