It turns out, the Eagles weren't the only team pursuing Rams quarterback Sam Bradford last week. According to Charlie Casserly, the former NFL General Manager now with NFL Media, the Browns offered the 19th pick in the draft for Bradford.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher told Pro Football Talk Live last week that his team was offered a late first-round pick for Bradford and turned it down. The Rams then traded Bradford to the Eagles.
At the Wednesday press conference announcing that trade, Eagles coach Chip Kelly revealed that
team had also already been offered a first-round pick for Bradford that morning.
At the very least, it appears the Browns are aiming higher than just Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel at quarterback. Bradford was the #1 pick in the NFL Draft in 2010, and while he hasn't been healthy in two years, is considered a top-tier quarterback when he is healthy, and is still only 27 years old.
