Adam Schefter’s St. Louis radio appearance heard ’round the Scouting Combine contained another interesting nugget that didn’t include Sam Bradford.
Schefter said teams have offered first-round picks for Steven Jackson in the past and the Rams could get that much if they wanted to deal him. (Schefter thought St. Louis wasn’t likely to have interest in moving Jackson.)
At the Combine, I asked Rams G.M. Bill Devaney Friday whether he’d be open to trading Jackson.
“We need more players like Steven Jackson. We can’t be poop-canning him out of the building,” Devaney said. “We gotta more guys like that in. No, there is no talk about trading Steven Jackson and there won’t be.”
We suddenly like Billy Devaney a lot more. All it takes is some vocabulary that matches our maturity level.
[Editor’s note: Who knew poop-canning had a hyphen? And trust me on this. Clicking that link will make your day.]
