The Cleveland Browns are in the market for a veteran option at quarterback with the lack of clarity surrounding incumbent Johnny Manziel and free agent-to-be Brian Hoyer, and recent trade rumors surrounding St. Louis Rams signal caller Sam Bradford have seemingly presented a perfect potential fit for Browns management.
However, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is doing his very best to dispel talks that Bradford is seeking a trade out of the Gateway City, adding to the dissonance about whether or not the longtime Rams QB is actually a viable trade option for the Browns.
"I was surprised to hear that,'' Fisher said on Friday, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "That's inaccurate. No, I mean. We talked about what our plans are for him.''
Bradford missed the final nine games of the 2013 campaign and all of the 2014 season with the same torn ACL. Yet, despite the restlessness of vocal Rams fans looking for a change under center, Fisher is backing Bradford as the team's franchise quarterback.
"They know that we've been without our first round pick and starting quarterback,'' Fisher said of the Rams' faithful. "When we've had him, he's 5-2-1 in our division. And we weren't very good when we got here, so we're counting on him. I'm betting on him and if that doesn't happen, then we'll win games with somebody else.''
Where that leaves the Browns remains to be seen.
