It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the St. Louis Rams are getting “weird, uninterested signals” from the Cleveland Browns when it comes to trading up for the No. 2 overall pick and the right to select quarterback Robert Griffin III in April’s NFL Draft.
After all, the asking price for that pick is going to be astronomical and, so far, only the Washington Redskins have expressed a more realistic interest in making a deal happen.
Despite Griffin III’s impressive Combine performance, which included running a blazing 4.41 (and a two-run average of 4.38 seconds) 40, the Browns don’t appear to be completely sold, at least not when it comes to banking their entire 2012 draft class on one player.
Unless the cost to trade up goes way down, don’t expect the Browns to get involved. With far too many needs in other places, the Browns are in no position to make that kind of move.
