It's no secret the St. Louis Rams fully intend to trade the No. 2 overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, and equally well known a handful of teams have interest in working their way up for the chance to select Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III.
One of those teams -- the Miami Dolphins -- owns the No. 8 overall pick and a desire to land a franchise-caliber quarterback.
While the Dolphins have been reported to have interest in dealing with the Rams, a team source told The Sun-Sentinel the motivation to give the package of picks required to land Griffin III âisnât very high.â
The source told the Sun-Sentinel that the Rams are asking for a bundle of picks equivalent to the value of the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.
The Dolphins, however, might have other designs on how to fill their quarterback void. Many consider the Dolphins as among the favorites to land Peyton Manning if he is released by the Indianapolis Colts, or as a destination for impending free agent Matt Flynn of the Green Bay Packers.
The other "known" teams involved in trade talks with the Rams include the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins. All three teams have had preliminary discussions with the Rams, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
