INDIANAPOLIS—Speaking at the NFL Combine, Rams coach Jeff Fisher indicated that his team was open for business when it came to dealing his team’s top draft pick, the second overall.
The Redskins are among several teams who might be interested in trading for the Rams’ selection in order to take Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.
“It’s a great opportunity,” he said of having the pick. “Hopefully it will define the immediate and the long-term future of this franchise.”
“We have a lot of options and we’re going to be prepared to do whatever.”
Fisher’s definition of “whatever” includes trading the pick prior to the draft. “If we’re in a situation where another member club has expressed interest and the deal’s good, it could be done before the draft,” Fisher said.
Fisher also squashed any thought that the Rams are considering drafting Griffin for themselves and trading Sam Bradford, who they picked first overall in the 2010 draft.
“That would not be an option,” Fisher said when asked about that possibility.
