NFL Trade Rumors – Brandon Marshall to St. Louis Rams?

It is not often that a big name player is mentioned in trade rumors as the NFL is not known for many big deals, but the latest from Bleacher Report has some intrigue. The Miami Dolphins would send wide receiver Brandon Marshall to St. Louis, and in return Miami would get the second overall pick in the upcoming draft.

This makes sense for both teams as the Rams have one of the worst wide receiving groups in the league, and adding a 27-year-old, who has five straight year of over 1,000 yards receiving, would give Rams quarterback Sam Bradford the big target he needs to step his game up. The Rams also have a new head coach in Jeff Fischer, and the former Titans coach is known for preferring proven talent over youngsters.

Miami could use the second choice to take Robert Griffin from Baylor and give the franchise a quarterback it has looked for since Dan Marino retired from football.

It's likely Miami would also give St. Louis an extra late round pick or two, but in terms of business sense, this deal could help both teams with needs for the next few years. Both these teams are looking to challenge for the NFL playoffs, but more talent is needed for these teams to make a run in the 2012-13 season.
