We have touched on this a little already, but Albert Breer over at NFL.com talked with new Rams coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead about quarterback Sam Bradford. According to the report, the Rams had several suitors interested in acquiring Bradford, but the Rams decided right away that they wanted to keep the young QB. Fisher believes Bradford can be one of the best quarterbacks in the league, and the team had no intention of moving him.

Snead did say that there was an outside scenario in which the Rams would have considered making a trade. “The only time it might’ve crossed my mind was if, for some reason, we were to get stuck [holding the No. 2 overall pick] because we didn’t get what we really wanted. Do you take the kid [Robert Griffin III] and trade him from there? That might’ve been the only time, and that would’ve been the riskiest of risky moves. But I’ll be clear: We decided early on that Sam was our quarterback.”

It’s no secret that I’m a huge believer in Bradford, so I love to hear this strategy. The team had to have a plan if they couldn’t move the pick, but it was never realistic that they were going to move Bradford. He’s our quarterback, and that’s a very good thing.
