Gibbs, Redskins Update 1st-Round Plans

The Washington Redskins will use their first round pick to select a player in this weekend's upcoming draft, the team announced on Tuesday.

"We have no intention of trading the ninth pick of the draft," said Vinny Cerrato, vice president of football operations. "Anything reported to the contrary is incorrect."

The Washington Post incorrectly reported on Tuesday that the team was in discussions to trade the team's first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders in return for cornerback Philip Buchanon.

"Right now we've had no discussions with anyone about trading away the ninth pick (in Saturday's NFL draft)," Gibbs said. "Are we considering any options we are presented with? Yes, we'll consider anything, but no one has presented a compelling scenario."
