  • It wouldn't surprise me if Bradford is.....

    a Redskin before it's all said and done draft day. McNabb only has one year left on his contract and the Rams are sorely needing more than just a QB. Who better than to trade with than Daniel Snyder? He's like the kid who wants the chocolate pudding so you trade him your pudding for his autograph football of the Rams.

    I think this Bradford scenario will just show Rams Nation how skilled Devaney is as the GM. It would shock me more if Bradford is a Ram than a Redskin.

    Then why are the Redskins already looking at extending his contract? And what would they give us? They only have four draft picks left and it their second highest pick is in the 4th round..

        They still have their first rounder and Daniel Snyder prints money so that's not an issue either. Especially if the salary cap doesn't come back which no one has guaranteed it will.

          Makes quite a bit of sense to me. Especially with no cap and this being a QB league.

            A bold prediction, no doubt.

            I'll just say that it WOULD shock me if that occurred.

              Ahhh maybe it's the IRS code that my mug has been stuck in since January that's clouded my judgment but that scenario wouldn't surprise me.

                It would surprise me. What does Washington have that we want? And who is available at #4 that we want?

                  Just sayin....with the flux at ownership (especially if Kronke sells) do they really want to shell out #1 money when Snyder would love to?

                    Not sure how many times Rams brass has to say ownership doesn't have a say in who they draft....

                    But of course you can figurte their lying, but i dont knwo how you can formulate us trading the pick out of desperation to save a few dollars...

                    Thats the anti winning formula and doesn't make too much sense...

                    The question really is: Do they really want to pass on the top guy on their board to save some a few dollars? Especially when its not even coming out of their pockets...

                      But it's not a QB-only league.

                      I'll just say that I would be surprised if it did shake out this way. But if it does go this way, I will be the first to pay for a "tx is a football deity" billboard down by the interstate.

                        The problems with this scenario are where we would land (a) and who is speculated to be there (b). At the number 4 spot, we will undoubtedly lose out on both of the top DTs, and of course Bradford. This leaves us with probably Berry, Haden, your favorite OT and Jimmy Clausen. I guess you could throw in Dez Bryant too. The only way I could remotely see this happening is if the FO is really, really high on Jimmy Clausen. And I haven't seen much to indicate that yet.

                          I think you guys are missing the point here. The Rams just wouldn't take this years Number 1 they would have to get next years also for this scenario to work. Sorry, didn't really spell that out but I assumed everyone knew that it wouldn't just be a one for one swap. It really doesn't matter though semantically because this isn't a semantics thread. It's a bottom line thought of mine. However, with as much B S that get's slung around the draft I didn't want to be left out.

                              I would bet on the Cleveland Browns to trade up with the Rams before Washington.
                              The Browns have more picks to trade up with and need a QB of the future. The Browns signed QB J. Delhume with a two year contract only.
                              The back up QB Seneca Walles is a half way decent QB but not the future.

                              I just worry about falling down that far in the draft to # 7. They better get alot of picks.

                                Should St.Louis stick with Bradford.... or go with RGIII?
                                by thermobee
                                By Charley Casserly, NFL.com

                                With the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams are in a great trading position. They could keep Sam Bradford and trade the pick to a team that wants Robert Griffin III for multiple draft picks; or they could take Griffin and trade Bradford for draft choices. One way or another, the Rams have the potential to greatly improve their football team.

                                In thinking through this hypothetical choice, one area that has to be considered is the cost difference. Bradford has four years left on his contact which will total $48 million. Griffin will sign a four-year contract for approximately $22 million. By taking Griffin and trading Bradford, the Rams would save almost $26 million. This money could be used to bolster other areas of the team.

                                Then there's the most important question: Who is the better player? I liked both of these quarterbacks in college, even though they had different styles. I believe both can be very successful in the NFL, but I would rate Bradford the better QB off his college tape. He displayed superior accuracy than Griffin does at this stage, and he threw to more options in the passing game. In fact, in the previous 10 years before Bradford was drafted, the only two college quarterbacks I had rated higher were Eli Manning and Carson Palmer. Bradford, who struggled this past season, had a very good rookie year in 2010. I believe this year's drop off was caused by his injuries and surroundings factors that buried the Rams. I still would rate him ahead of Griffin.

                                But who would bring the most in a trade? I believe it would be Bradford, even with his higher salary. He already has two seasons in a pro-style offense in the NFL and would be ready to start and win right now. Also, some people will look at it the way I did, going back to their college evaluations and seeing Bradford rated higher.

                                If you believe in Griffin's ability to become at least as good a QB as Bradford, you trade Bradford. However, if I was making the decision, I'd stick with Bradford. I would go with the more known quantity, who already has two years experience and Pro Bowl potential.If the Rams choose to draft Griffin and trade Bradford, they might receive two first-round draft choices plus another pick or player -- and save $26 million in the process. If they keep Bradford and trade the second pick, it is possible they could still get the same draft deal. There is also the possibility that the market could disappear if Matt Flynn and Peyton Manningsign with teams in the top 10.

                                If you believe in Griffin's ability to become at least as good a QB as Bradford, you trade Bradford. However, if I was making the decision, I'd stick with Bradford. I would go with the more known quantity, who already has two years experience and Pro Bowl potential.

                                Suddely Bradford doesn't look so expensive.

                                And he is, (and will be even more so) worth it. Romo is GUARANTEED roughly $10M a year.

                                When you look at the Super high paid QB - Brees, Manning, Brady, Romo, Flacco, Rothlesberger, Bradford makes roughly half of their salaries, let's say $10M, and plays half as well. (Don't pick on my numbers - they're for rough comparison numbers only).

                                But it's not like we're paying Flynn or Kolb or Palmer or Cassell $10m a year not to play.
                                And just about the time the Rams are extending Bradford - I hope during or at the end of this year, (assuming obviously it's warranted) - for a 10 year average of say $12-14M a year, SF and Seattle will be giving Kap and Wilson 6 year $80M guaranteed contracts.

                                Bradford suffers from cashing in undeservedly in a faulty system, without performing in line with his salary, and while not his fault, it still leaves a justfiably bad taste in everyone's mouth. The killer for the Rams is they got hit three years in a row, which they are still recovering from.

                                Bottom line, there will come a day soon when Bradford will be considered a bargain.

                                I think the Rams want to want Bradford
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                We keep reading reports from sportswriters either predicting that the Rams will take Sam Bradford, or arguing that they should. There have also been reports (though I don't know how reliable) of Devaney speaking favorably about Bradford during an informal discussion with fans.

                                Despite all this, I do not believe that the Rams know who they will take in April.

                                I do think, however, that they know who they want to want to take, and that is Bradford.

                                They want his arm to check out medically. They want him to have great interviews. They want him to make "all the throws" at his Pro Day.

                                Essentially, the Rams want to be convinced that Bradford is a franchise QB.

                                That makes sense, of course. A top QB will always be the preferred option with the first overall pick.

                                The Rams must be careful, though, not to talk themselves into believing that Bradford is something that he is not.

                                I'm still on the fence. By March 26th (the day after Bradford's Pro Day, there's a significant chance he'll be at the top of my draft board.

                                I guess I want to want him too.

                                Take it for what it's worth. Best case scenario, we add another name to the list of those we can chuckle at if Bradford does, in fact, sign prior to the draft. But there are some interesting points in there (ie. leverage, etc)....

                                No need to rush Sam Bradford extension
                                September, 27, 2013
                                By Nick Wagoner | ESPN.com

                                EARTH CITY, Mo. -- Reports surfaced Thursday afternoon that the St. Louis Rams are ready and willing to work out a contract extension with quarterback Sam Bradford.

                                NFL Networkís Mike Silver reported that Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff told him the team views Bradford as the long-term solution at quarterback.

                                "We have decided that Sam Bradford is our guy. If they came to us and wanted to do a contract extension right now, we'd do it in a minute," Demoff told Silver.

                                The question that statement begs is ĎWhy?í

                                Bradford is a quarter of the way through his fourth season in the league and every move the Rams made last offseason was clearly with an eye toward building around him, not looking for his replacement.

                                So it should be no surprise that Demoff, general manager Les Snead and coach Jeff Fisher are willing to publicly voice their support for Bradford. In fact, thatís exactly what they should be doing.

                                It does no harm to back Bradford right now, as he is by far the best option on the team at the position. Creating doubt or a quarterback controversy is the last thing this team needs. Itís good for the team to know that Bradford is the guy, and itís good for Bradford to know it as well.

                                But thereís a fine line between offering votes of confidence and taking action that could be potentially damaging to the franchise long term. In a fit of bad timing, Bradford had one of his worst outings of the season only a few hours after the report surfaced.

                                In fairness, itís wise not to look at this through the vacuum of that one game. Bradford has had his good moments this season, too, namely leading a comeback win against Arizona in the first week.

                                By and large, though, Bradford doesnít have the body of work that should earn a rubber stamp (not to mention the many millions of dollars) that a contract extension would provide.

                                At this point in his career, Bradford has a career quarterback rating of 77.8, a pedestrian number at best, and has yet to guide the Rams to a winning record or playoff appearance. Itís only been four games this season, but so far the efforts to bolster his supporting cast havenít paid dividends.

                                If nothing else, signing Bradford to an extension anytime soon would be premature. His contract doesnít expire until after the 2015 season. Heís due $27 million over the next two seasons, leaving plenty of time to determine if he can be the type of quarterback that should get a big-money second contract.

                                By now you may be wondering why, if the Rams are willing to get a deal done, Bradford hasnít jumped at the chance. NFL Networkís report indicates Bradford is the one who isnít in a rush to get something done.

                                It appears Bradford doesnít believe he has compiled...
