WASHINGTON (AP) - A person familiar with the deal says that the Washington Redskins are poised to pay a hefty price to move into position to take Robert Griffin III in the NFL draft.

FOXSports.com and ESPN.com reported Friday night that the Redskins have a deal in place to acquire the No. 2 pick in the NFL draft from the St. Louis Rams. ESPN.com said Washington will give up its first and second-round picks this year, plus first-round picks in 2013 and 2014 in the trade, which can’t be completed until the new league year begins Tuesday.

The person confirmed the trade to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither team has announced it.
