This isn't particularly shocking news (to some, anyway), but the Rams won't be shopping for a quarterback in the 2012 NFL Draft and will stick with Sam Bradford as their franchise quarterback.
CBS Sports Charley Casserly reported as much on Sunday on The NFL Today, noting that the Rams are "going to stick with" Bradford (versus drafting, say, Robert Griffin III) and utilize their second pick in April's draft to improve in other areas.
"They're going to stick with Sam Bradford," Casserly told James Brown Sunday. "If Griffin comes out that second pick has value. If he doesn't come out, it doesn't. I would ask for two No. 1 picks and another pick depending on where that team is [sitting]. Unless I can get a second No. 1 I'm taking [Justin] Blackmon and now I've got a target for Bradford."
St. Louis has a pretty good shot at getting the second first-rounder for that No. 2 pick, especially with the Redskins potentially needing to jump the Browns to grab RG3 if they want him.
The problem then becomes whether or not the Browns are interested in Blackmon; the Rams certainly want to accumulate as many picks as possible, and getting maximum trade value for the No. 2 pick is paramount for them this season.
But they're going to lose Brandon Lloyd this offseason, and you have to wonder how long they can go without investing heavily in a top-end wideout to pair with their franchise quarterback.
