You think they would turn that trade down? I think the league would drug test our front office if we offered that....

It would be the 4th pick, Carter, and Campbell for the 1st pick, right?

They'd only do that if they thought Campbell had more future value than Bradford, in which case, they were never going to pick him to begin with, and we just screwed ourselves.

Actually the Rams may do that so that:
a) they don't have to pay the ridiculous money a QB drafted at #1 makes, and
b) if they are comfortable with JC as their starting QB and they want to focus their roster-building elsewhere, they get a their starting QB, a DE with short-term potential value, and they still have the #4 overall pick.

I'd think they'd be very willing to do that if they weren't going to take Bradford. Get a quarterback, get out of the money, and probably land the guy you were chasing anyway.

But if that's the case, we shouldn't trade up, we should be looking to land Bradford at No. 4 (which again, assumes that that's a good idea against a lot of mounting evidence).

...sigh...I know what I am about to say may not be popular...and I am having a hard time saying it...but. Lets draft an OT at 4, and at 37, and keep JC upright. His stats have gotten better every year, and now with Shanny there, who knows. Lets not forget, San Diego drafted Rivers while they had Brees, because Brees took a few years to develop. Maybe, a year with Shanny. I know its a reach, but what do you think?

I love that idea. It goes against the offseason plans executed over the last 10 years but it seems that we are in a new age.

Sounds good we have our starter from last year JC and PJ5, Sexy Rexy. Who can all very well be our Starters. If JC's not our starter I'd really love to see if PJ5 really has something.

Incidentally, Clausen also spent a lot of time with reps from the 49ers and Bills (who he will work out for next week)

Ok maybe not force them to take whoever we decide to give them but they do have a need for a decent QB and the lot of you seem to think JC is 1st round talent so that must mean he's decent enough. They also have need on the DL. We could debate giving them AH but then I'd think they would owe us something. The Rams were trying to get out of the spot looking into trade scenarios so why not explore what they want? Not saying it has to go down but simply ask what they would be willing to take in return with out throwing in a bunch of draft picks.

Obviously you don't want to do it too soon cause then other teams will have time to out bid you if they think about it long enough. So I presume we wait till draft day and talk trade. Throw in a steak dinner, some female escorts, all will be well.

Rumors I've heard were exactly that....

They were looking to trade out of the #1 spot cause they didn't want to have to pay a Rookie that kind of money.

They didn't want to too far down the draft where they couldn't get the guy they were interested in.

On top of that there is the rumor that Spags was almost let go cause the owners were not happy with last year but were talked into giving him one more year. Because of this I heard Spags may not want to put all his cards on an unproven rookie QB cause it might just be his job.

I know what they say about rumors but if any of this is anywhere near the truth I can see us making a decent trade. They get the QB spot settled with a decent QB who is safe with the ball. They get a decent DE which they need and Carter still has gas left but might not fit in a 3-4 for us. Plus they get the #4 pick to take whoever they want...Tackle or DL.
