Former Rams general manager Billy Devaney, who had to deal with a similar situation before taking Sam Bradford at No. 1 in 2010, spoke with Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com about the situation:
“Sounds like the same stuff. Ever year there are shenanigans that go on. We kind of set our sights early on Bradford. There was stuff that started to come out that Bradford didn’t want to play in St. Louis,” Devaney said.
