Rams G.M. Devaney Debunks Rumors Of Trade Talks With Bucs

by Staff Report on February 22, 2010

If Bucs General Manager Mark Dominik has been in contact with the St. Louis Rams, and their general manager Bily Devaney about a possible trade related to both teams’ first round picks in the 2010 NFL draft, with regards to draft positioning. Rams general manager Devaney isn’t aware of it. Devaney, who hosted a chat session on NFL.com today, stated. With what he cited as complete honesty, that he unequivocally has had no contact with any member of the Bucs front office about a possible trade. That would enable Tampa Bay to move up two spots from the third overall spot to the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, as a report from Chris Steuber of Scout.com suggested last Friday.

With Tampa Bay proposing a trade for our 1st overall pick, and we would receive their 1st and 3rd round pick and Josh Johnson. I feel we should trade with Tampa and then propose a trade with Washington for their first round pick( Since they want Bradford). We need all the help we can and this would free up a lot of salary space. What do you think?

I am being completely honest when I say I have not talked to anyone in Tampa Bay. I’m not saying that won’t happen at some point but to date there is absolutely nothing going on.

While Devaney refutes the rumors that he has spoken with Dominik, about the possibilities of a trade, what’s to say former Bucs capologist and current Rams Vice President of Football Operations, Kevin Demoff has not had a feeling out process and preliminary discussions with Bucs G.M. Dominik?

The Bucs who have Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh sitting atop their draft board, along with limitless holes abound on both side of the football. So while the initial report has the Bucs trading up with the Rams. It just doesn’t jive with the Bucs plans of eying the potential possibilities of trading down, do in large part to speculation over the Glazer’s cash flow problems and the overall lack of talent on the roster.

Well equipped with 10 picks in the upcoming draft. The overall thinking is that G.M. Mark Dominik is looking to stockpile between 12-14 picks to adequately replenish the roster with talent. In what many feel is one of the deepest drafts in recent years with 53 underclassmen declaring as it ties a previous record.
