One of the players who will be the subject of extensive rumors, rumblings, and speculation between now and the 2014 NFL Draft is a player who has already been in the league for four years: St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford.
With the Rams in prime position to move onto another franchise quarterback with the second overall pick, the rest of the NFL is watching with great interest to try and figure out general manager Les Snead’s plan.
In an interview with Pro Football Talk on Friday, Snead insists that the Rams do not plan to draft a quarterback with that second pick. Mike Florio writes the following:
G.M. Les Snead said during a Friday interview with Pro Football Talk on NBCSN that the Rams will not use the No. 2 pick on a quarterback. He said that the Rams will nevertheless scout the top quarterbacks, primarily in connection with the question of determining the potential value of the second pick.”
The Rams have put out any number of messages about their intentions with Bradford and with their pick: they have expressed interest in trading the pick, remained steadfast that Bradford is their quarterback, and have reportedly expressed no intentions to sign Bradford to an extension.
Some of it might be posturing, sure, but it is interesting that they continue to appear unsure about their future at the position.
