Fisher: Rams are not shopping Bradford
Question of the Day
Fisher and general manager Les Snead both poked fun at all the rumors leading up to the draft at a news conference Tuesday. Among them was a purported Manziel sighting in St. Louis last week - after the deadline for teams to visit with prospects.
Fisher stopped short of totally quashing the possibility of a deal involving the No. 1 pick of the 2010 draft. He added this is not the best time to put total trust in sources.
“Well, anything can happen,” Fisher said. “A good question, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”
Fisher said the team held private workouts for 45 players at 12-15 locations, including Manziel. At Texas A&M;, the Rams also worked out offensive tackle Jake Matthews and wide receiver Mike Evans, both expected to go early in the draft.
“I think his production and his competitiveness and everything speaks for himself,” Fisher said. “He can make all the plays, throw the football, is a great teammate and very productive player. Great for their program.”
But he added that “we also have a responsibility to continue to upgrade this roster,” and the Rams would “do our due diligence.”
“We don’t even know what Houston’s going to do yet,” Snead said. “You don’t even know who’s going to be picking at one yet.
“Nobody knows who’s the first quarterback off the board yet.”
