According to rookie GM Les Snead, the Rams decided "early on" that they would stick with Sam Bradford at quarterback rather than trade Bradford when teams like the Browns came calling.
"I'll be clear," said Snead. "We decided early on that Sam was our quarterback." Cleveland, where old Rams OC Pat Shurmur is now head coach, was known to have interest in Bradford. Snead conceded that he considered drafting Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick, but only to deal RG3 later on. Trading Bradford was never entertained. While the Rams' offense figures to go run-heavy to "protect" Bradford in 2012, he has a healthy amount of long-term job security.
