Golden Nuggets: Redskins, RG3, Sanchez, Oh My

Yesterday went from a fairly quiet and ordinary Friday into a crazy Friday evening. We'll have individual posts for each of the two big topics. The Washington Redskins traded away a truckload of picks to move up from No. 6 to No. 2, most likely to draft Robert Griffin III. In other news, Mark Sanchez signed a three year contract extension worth $40.5 million, which will keep him in the Meadowlands through 2016.

On a side note, for those that weren't aware, these Golden Nuggets are not a 100% complete resource of links. This is meant as much to be a link dump so that if you come across a cool link (be it 49ers-related or otherwise), you are encouraged to post it in here for all to see. Some were not aware of how this worked and I wanted to clarify that.
