Rams looking at offers for No. 2 overall pick

The Rams are willing to trade the second overall pick of the April draft.

The team will make a deal under the right circumstances but has not made any commitments despite a report Monday a trade had been decided, chief operating officer Kevin Demoff said Tuesday.

Quarterbacks Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are expected to go 1-2 in the draft, with Indianapolis holding the top pick. The Rams need plenty of help but are set at quarterback with Sam Bradford, the first overall pick in 2010.

The Colts are widely expected to take Luck as the heir to Peyton Manning. Griffin, last year's Heisman Trophy winner at Baylor, is seen as a good fit with a number of teams.

The Redskins are prepared to part with two first-round draft picks, plus other selections in the early and middle rounds, to secure the Rams' pick, the Washington Post reported.

scouting combine: UCF's Josh Robinson had the fastest 40-yard dash time among 10 defensive backs who worked out Tuesday, the combine's last day in Indianapolis. Robinson's time was 4.33 seconds.

49ers: Linebacker Ahmad Brooks signed a six-year, $44.5 million contract extension that will take him through 2017.

free agency: Receiver Mario Manningham denied saying there is a 75 percent chance he would leave the Giants. "It's a 50-50 percent chance," he said. Free agency begins March 13. … Receiver Plaxico Burress said the Jets want him back but "nothing else would make me happier" than playing for the Eagles, he told a Philadelphia radio station.

concussion suits: In the latest lawsuit accusing the league of negligence in its handling of head injuries, former Cowboys defensive lineman Michael Myers alleges concussions have affected his short-term memory and caused migraine headaches and other health problems. Dallas drafted Myers in 1998; he played six seasons for it in a 10-year career. An NFL spokesman said the league hadn't seen the suit but any allegation it intentionally sought to mislead players has "no merit."
