Rams GM: “I Have Not Talked To” Bucs… YetFebruary 22nd, 2010
Bucs fans who got all giddy when rumors popped over the weekend that the Bucs and Rams were going to swap first round picks, enabling the Bucs to choose from manbeast Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy, well, you are probably a victim of premature jockularity.
Participating in a live chat on NFL.com this afternoon, Rams general manager Billy Devaney flatly denied talking to the Bucs about a trade — or anything — but didn’t rule out such a transaction.
Bert, Spanish Lake, Mo.
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.
Well, that’s actually encouraging. Devaney certainly left the door open for Mark Dominik to swing a deal.
Now the question is, will Dominik call?
