    Jets trade?

    The Rams have reportedly exchanged trade ideas with the Jets, who hold the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.
    New York may want to get in front of Atlanta to secure Matt Ryan. St. Louis is currently on the clock and in great position to make a move. The Rams could also try to sign Glenn Dorsey before Saturday. With Jake Long out of the picture, ESPN's John Clayton says Dorsey is the top player on their board.

    Idealy we could still land a good DE and at least Sedrick Ellis

    2. Matt Ryan
    3. Dorsey
    4. Chris Long or even more ideal D-Mac
    5. Brandon Albert
    6. Vernon Gholston

    then
    2. James Hardy, WR, Indiana
    2. Curtis Lofton, LB, Oklahoma

    Per the NFL the Rams cannot negotiate with any player.

    I hope this does not happen. I love to see us sign Chris Long at number 2.

    There is only one good thing about drafting Dorsey. Linehan loses his job at the end of 08.

    However, the Rams are free to explore trades right now...my guess is tomorrow the NFL will make the decision that the Rams can start negotiating with player(s) if they wish....

    Dolphins, Long persevere


    posted: Tuesday, April 22, 2008 | Print Entry

    Getting Jake Long signed to a five-year, $57.75 million contract five days before the draft wasn't easy for the Dolphins or Long's representatives. In fact, it almost didn't happen. Both sides were stalled Monday on ways to complete a complicated deal that included $30 million on guarantees. At one point, according to a source, the negotiations were falling apart. With a possible uncapped year in 2010, there were problems reaching agreements on what happens if there is a lockout or a strike in 2011.
    Over the past couple of days, both sides were able to agree on the numbers by making compromises. The Dolphins did not want to give Long less in potential earnings than the Raiders gave to QB JaMarcus Russell, who signed a six-year, $61 million contract that included $32 million in guarantees. The solution was a five-year deal, which could be a windfall for Long once his rookie contract elapses.
    The Dolphins and Long's agent, Tom Condon, worked until 1:30 a.m. Tuesday morning. They made enough progress that Condon flew to Miami and finished the deal. Long is expected to have a $3 million cap number on the contract. He's also the first offensive lineman in NFL history to get a $10 million-a-year contract.
    Rams on the clock: Now that Long is locked in as the No. 1 pick, the Rams have to start getting serious about their plans at No. 2. LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey is their top-rated player and would be a perfect fit for their defense. The Rams have a solid trade offer from New Orleans, which has the No. 10 pick. According to a source, the Rams have exchanged some trade ideas with the New York Jets, who have the No. 6 pick. If the second scenario came to fruition, the Rams could move backward and take defensive end Chris Long. The simple concept, though, would be to start working on a deal with Dorsey and try to get him signed.
    Ravens hoping Ryan slips: Jake Long's signing makes the Ravens interested spectators regarding the Rams and the No. 2 pick. If the Rams take Dorsey, the Ravens are probably not going to get QB Matt Ryan at No. 8. With Steve McNair retiring, the Ravens are looking to select a quarterback in the first two rounds. If Jake Long and Dorsey are selected in the top two, the Falcons will probably take the Ryan, putting the Ravens in position to take one of the other quarterbacks in the draft.

    McFadden update: Darren McFadden is a consideration for the Rams at No. 2 pick, even though the team has Steven Jackson, but it would be a long shot for the Arkansas running back to end up in St. Louis. It appears the Jets like McFadden. Other people in the Raiders' organization besides Al Davis appear to be in McFadden's corner. If that's the case, don't expect any kind of major drop for McFadden.

    no links so here is the full article falconator John Clayton is pretty reputable
