No contact with Rams over Bradford
ST. LOUIS, MO (The Spread) - Despite what rumors would have you believe, no team has contacted the Rams about a possible trade involving quarterback Sam Bradford.
Yahoo Sports! Rand Getlin reported earlier on Tuesday that the Browns are "pursuing a trade" for Bradford and last week Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported that the Browns would "take a real run" at trying to acquire the QB. But via informed sources, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport shot down the rumors by writing that no team has contacted St. Louis regarding a possible trade.
Bradford is coming off back-to-back knee injuries the past two seasons and has been limited to seven games over that span. Still, due to a brutal free agent pool and a thin draft class, Bradford might be the most intriguing quarterback on the market if the Rams were willing to part with the 27-year-old via a trade.
That said, coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead have thrown their support behind Bradford, who is expected to be the team's starter in 2015 before becoming a free agent in 2016. He has one more year left on a rookie deal that will have paid him $50 million in guaranteed money over the past six years.
