Maybe someone leapfrogs the Jags @ 3 and makes a trade with the Rams. (likely Minnesota, Oakland, or Cleveland)
If no trade is made, then maybe the Rams take a QB since Bradford really hasnt been a sucsess. OR they wait for the 2015 draft.
At any rate... Jax is in love with Teddy Bridgewater.
so that leaves Manzel most likely going to the Browns @ 4. (Which is hilarious b/c that would hurt his popularity.
Than Oakland and Minnesota fight over Carr.
Iirc, the Rams are willing to trade down anyway.
I would not rule it out but it is very unprobable, imho. Bradford had showed some signs of being a franchise-QB before he went down with a season-ending injury.
However, he is due to 14 mio. in base salary next season and the cap savings, if cut, would sum up to 10 mio. dollar (if stayed put, they are over 125 mio. against the cap).
Next problem: If they want to sign their rookies, they have to cut some players or restructure some contracts. Besides Bradford, Finnegan, Dahl, Langford and Wells are candidates for either solution. Furthermore, they will try to resign Saffold, imho.
Iirc, they wanted to extend Bradford anyway, thus they would restructure the contract at the same time and reduce the cap number (over 17 mio.) down to 10-12 in 2014.
Dahl could be a goner (4 Mio. in cap savings).
