Rams GM Les Snead told Pro Football Talk on Friday that they will not use their No. 2 overall pick on a quarterback this May.
- Snead added that they do plan on scouting the top quarterbacks in this year’s draft class in order to determine the value of their pick.
- Snead also reaffirmed that they are committed to Sam Bradford being their starting quarterback in the long-run.
- Snead mentioned earlier in the day that contract talks with Bradford are “ongoing and active.“
The Rams have refuted a report from earlier in the week that they have no intentions of locking up Bradford to an extension.
Bradford, 26, still has two years remaining on his contract with base salaries of $14.015 million and $12.985 million coming way during this time. As things stand right now, he has a $17.6 million cap figure next season, which means he represents an easy source of cap space if the Rams were to get him signed to an extension.
The Rams basically have no cap room to work with right now, so it seems almost certain that roster moves will be coming at some point in the near future.
- Ian Rapoport reports that the St. Louis Rams are in Rock Hill, South Carolina today doing their “due diligence” on DE Jadeveon Clowney.
At this point, it appears as though all options are on the table in regards to their first-round pick including trading down and possibly taking someone like OT Greg Robinson or DE Jadeveon Clowney.
