RAMS: JACKSON WILL NOT BE TRADED
Mon, 30 Apr 2012 07:47 PM EDT

The St. Louis Rams did their very best to stamp out a rumor the day before the draft, asserting running back Steven Jackson is not displeased with his agreement. Basketball odds

The Rams additionally say they’re not interested in trading the 2-time Pro Bowler. Jackson is coming off his 7th straight 1,000-yard season and has 2 years left on an agreement that’ll pay him about $7 million in 2012.

“Steven’s here, he’s in the offseason plan, he’s upstairs every other day,” Coach Jeff Fisher expounded. “He’s doing great, having a great time, learning the offense.”

Fisher stated that he didn’t know the way the rumor started or where it was coming from. He recalled rumors that the Rams were shopping quarterback Sam Bradford around when they traded the No. 2 pick to Washington, and he reiterated that Jackson was not on the market. Basketball spreads

“We talk about the potential methods of improving the roster, but his name hasn’t been floated out there,” Fisher declared. “I don’t know where it’s coming from. People are just making an attempt to develop some excitement.”

The Rams have the 6th overall pick after trading the No. 2 pick to the Redskins for the No. 6 pick, together with Washington’s 2nd-rounder and 1st-rounders in 2013 and 2014.

Most mock drafts have St. Louis taking Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon. Relying how the top of the draft goes, the Rams may take Alabama running back Trent Richardson as Jackson’s eventual inheritor.

Jackson announced last week at a voluntary minicamp that he’d understand if the Rams took Richardson, that he’d help if the player was receptive.

The most important query with the 6-foot-1, 210-pound Blackmon is a lack of breakaway speed. He had 121 catches for 18 touchdowns his senior season but at a 12.6-yard per catch average. Blackmon wasn’t heavily recruited out of Ardmore, Okla., but appeared as a star after Dez Bryant was drafted by the Cowboys.

The prevailing crop of Rams wide receivers lacks much of a profile with Danny Amendola the best of the bunch. Amendola was a go-to slot option in 2010 with 85 catches except for an 8.1-yard average, and he missed nearly all of last season with a dislocated left elbow.

The Rams have 8 picks to help to build a roster that requires help all over, given they’ve totaled ten wins the past 3 seasons. They’ve already filled some holes in independent agency, with cornerback Cortland Finnegan, center Scott Wells and defensive tackle Kendall Langford signed to multiyear deals and Kellen Clemens signed to back up Bradford.

Fisher said any player he picks up on both sides of the ball can help Bradford.

“We hope to pick up some starters in this draft, players that may come in and start right away hopefully,” Fisher said. “Guys who may take some time, it may be a process.”

Predictably, Fisher and GM Les Snead shed little light on their plans.

“I believe there’s a probability of us both trading up and down,” Fisher said. “And could also stay where we are, is there any other choice?”
