ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi reports that the Browns inquired about a trade for Sam Bradford before turning their attention to a failed attempt at the No. 2 overall pick early this month.
"Clubs inquired," acknowledged Rams coach Jeff Fisher. "But there was no consideration whatsoever on our part (to trade Bradford)." Browns president Mike Holmgren had already tried to trade up for Bradford just before the 2010 draft. Bradford went on to play his rookie season for current Browns coach Pat Shurmur, who remains fond of the 2010 No. 1 overall pick. The cost to acquire Bradford would have been extremely steep. Despite their public claims to the contrary, this is more proof that the Browns aren't sold on Colt McCoy as a starting NFL quarterback.
