Before the 2014 NFL draft, a report surfaced suggesting that the Minnesota Vikings and St. Louis Rams may have engaged in trade talks surrounding Rams quarterback and former No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford.
St. Louis was quick to rebuff such talk publicly, though many believed the Rams would entertain the thought of drafting a quarterback with their No. 2 pick this year and would be open to moving Bradford if such a scenario unfolded.
The Rams, of course, didn't draft a quarterback with the second overall selection, and as head coach Jeff Fisher told The Dan Patrick Show on Monday, via Pro Football Talk, they apparently made no trade calls in attempt to move Bradford, nor did any team contact St. Louis.

Even if St. Louis did want to move on from Bradford, it would be selling its starting quarterback at a bargain basement price this offseason, with Bradford coming off an ACL injury and bringing with him a $14 million price tag for the upcoming season.
Fisher was pretty decisive in shooting down the rumored trade talks, so it's clear the Rams expect to have Sam Bradford under center for the foreseeable future.
