Report: 'Skins still trying to land Bradford
Let’s start this day off with a bang, shall we?
Less than one month after trading for Donovan McNabb, the Washington Redskins may not be done addressing the quarterback position. Per a report from Dan Graziano of AOL Fanhouse.com, the Washington Redskins are still in discussions with the St. Louis Rams regarding a deal for Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford.
Graziano cites sources who tell him that the ‘Skins are still in the hunt for Bradford and that the plan would be for the former Heisman Trophy winner to sit for a year behind McNabb while learning head coach Mike Shanahan’s offensive system.
As the NFP’s Michael Lombardi will address later this morning, the party starts at No. 4 in tonight’s draft as mixed reports have surfaced recently regarding what the Redskins are planning to do with their top pick.
Offensive tackles Russell Okung (Oklahoma State) and Trent Williams (Oklahoma) are in play, as is Tennessee safety Eric Berry.
Should the ‘Skins figure out a way to land Bradford, it will be interesting to see the reaction from McNabb, who has dealt with this sort of thing before.
What's even more interesting here is trying to figure out how the Rams will win more than three games next season and build any sort of support from the city of St. Louis after passing on yet another potential franchise quarterback.
