''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. . . . We are not trading that pick."
The Post and the Redskins have had a contentious relationship this offseason, with the team denying several stories in the newspaper this offseason.
The Redskins will hold a media roundtable Wednesday to further discuss the draft. Cerrato, coach Joe Gibbs and owner Dan Snyder will attend.
UPDATE (4/20): Cerrato stated last night that the Redskins are looking to trade back in the draft, using the #9 pick to gain more selections later in the draft. Apparently Cerrato was saying that the #9 would not be traded for a player such as Buchannon (who was traded to Houston last night). Of course, with the deal to pick up the #25 pick, the picture has changed somewhat since Cerrato's statement on Tuesday morning.
