INDIANAPOLIS - New Rams coach Jeff Fisher seemed to enjoy his club's position of having the No. 2 overall selection in the draft. The buzz is ceaseless that St. Louis will entertain offers from teams desperate to move up for that pick.

"It's a great opportuity," Fisher told reporters Friday. "And certainly it will define the immediate and, hopefully, longterm future of this franchise. We've got a lot of options, and we're going to be prepared to do whatever ... (we) take the best player, or listen to whoever's willing to talk (trade)."

The previous Rams coaching staff loved everything about rookie quarterback Sam Bradford last year, and Fisher put an end to any speculation he might trade Bradford.

"That wouldn't be an option," he said.

One option as a deep threat for Bradford that Fisher didn't dismiss was the now unretired Randy Moss, who played part of the 2010 season for Fisher at Tennessee.

"I thought he was great for our locker room," Fisher said.

Yes, he said with a straight face. He was serious.
