I will be interesting to see if Snyder gives up the farm for Ogunleye. He is prone to overpay and they need a DE.
washingtontimes.com (http://washingtontimes.com/sports/20040622-123705-8605r.htm) A league source said yesterday Washington offered a first-round pick to Miami for Ogunleye, who is mired in a contract dispute and is threatening to skip the first half of the season. The source said the Dolphins rebuffed Washington but might change their minds as the regular season approaches.
Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, however, played down any interest in Ogunleye and specifically denied an offer was made.
"I think anybody in the league would have interest in him," Gibbs said. "There's nothing to it. They're not going to let that guy go. I wouldn't if I were them."
Although a deal appears to be a long shot, Washington has a track record of ponying up draft picks and huge signing bonuses to make such swaps occur. Already this offseason, the Redskins have traded for two Pro Bowl players, quarterback Mark Brunell and running back Clinton Portis.

Yea they have showed interest, but i don't believe that they will want to give away a 1st round pick and all the money he wants.
