According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s some belief among some NFL executives that the Rams could still get a nice return for Sam Bradford if they attempt to trade him.
Several front office executives I spoke with — guys who aren’t in the quarterback market one way or another and wouldn’t have a dog in this fight — believed Bradford could still fetch a strong return. They believed that some of the young GMs picking high in this draft who need quarterbacks might fancy Bradford over possibly swinging and missing on a quarterback high in the first round. They cited Bradford’s lingering appeal with offensive coordinators and quarterback coaches, who first fell for him at Oklahoma and still look at him the way they did when he was selected first overall in 2010.
If the Rams trade Bradford away, they could end up being stuck with a young quarterback that doesn’t turn out to even be as good as Bradford is.
