Browns president Mike Holmgren says he made a phone call to the Rams 20 minutes before the draft began on Thursday and offered a package to the Rams, who selected Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford first overall. Holmgren says he made the offer to Rams general manager Billy Devaney ``at the limits of what I was willing to do.''
Holmgren says Devaney ``finally said we're going to take him (Bradford).
Holmgren would not specify what he offered the Rams. The Browns eventually selected Texas quarterback Colt McCoy in the third round.
