According to Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com, at the NFL owners meetings, St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher explained why they ended up accepting the Washington Redskins trade offer for the second overall pick and not the Browns. “It was part of it, yeah, considering our needs,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday at NFL owners meetings. “If you look at it from this perspective: I haven’t met the players yet, haven’t seen them on the field, and I realistically don’t know what we have. We’ll have a much better idea after the season what kind of team we have. And our needs very well may change. “To have an opportunity to have two 1s in ’13, ’14 was really important to us.” Fisher reiterrated that it wasn’t because of his relationship with Mike Shanahan. “We didn’t make a decision because of my relationship with Mike or anyone’s relationship with anybody else,” Fisher said.
