Vacation Man Never Believed Rams Trade RumorsFebruary 24th, 2010
A lot of Bucs fans became overly excited over the weekend and it had nothing to do with a chance encounter with Rachel Watson.
Rather, Bucs fans got worked up over rumors the Bucs were trying to flop first round draft picks with the Rams to acquire the overall No. 1 draft choice, and sending “career backup” quarterback Josh Johnson and a third round pick to the Lambs.
Vacation Man of BSPN.com never bought it. He explains in an NFC South mailbag.
Brian in Tampa Bay writes: There are a lot of rumors floating around about the Bucs being in talks with the Rams to send their 3rd and 1st round picks, along Josh Johnson, to the Rams for the 1st overall pick. Is this just a load of you-know-what or is there actually some truth in these rumors?
Pat Yasinskas: Rumors are rumors and my bosses have rules against us doing too much speculating in this turf. But let me just say this: Who really thinks Josh Johnson has any trade value?
Never mind that Rams general manager Billy Devaney shot down the rumors — but confessed wanting to talk with Bucs general manager Mark Dominik.
In the hours prior to the combine, Joe is starting to become weary of all the rumors. That doesn’t mean he will not report any.
