2012 NFL Draft: Rams Won't Trade Sam Bradford

Lost in the suffocating discussion regarding what the St. Louis Rams will do with their No. 2 overall pick is whether or not the Rams have, or will, consider trading starting quarterback Sam Bradford. Though Bradford is a few years removed from being a No. 1 pick himself and is an ex-Offensive Rookie of the Year, some fans may consider it a blunder if, years down the line, Robert Griffin III ends up having a better career than Bradford.

In his Tuesday column, Sports Illustrated's Peter King said that the Rams have no interest in trading Bradford, who is reportedly a favorite of both new head coach Jeff Fisher and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. By King's reasoning, the Rams can get more for the No. 2 pick than they could for Bradford, and that the combination of Bradford and the resulting loot would be the best way to improve the team.
