2013 NFL Draft trade rumors: Rams, Bills dealing

Mike Ehrmann

The Rams are reportedly in talks with the Bills to move up to the eighth spot.

The trade rumors just won't go away. In fact, they're only getting more and more prevalent and detailed. The latest has the St. Louis Rams and the Buffalo Bills talking about a deal to swap the eighth and the 16th pick, according to Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network.

Take a guess who the target probably is ... Tavon Austin. He's been linked to the Rams in trade rumors all day. Clearly, the Rams want to get those offensive weapons. It's like they aren't happy with scoring less than 20 points per game.

However, this is no guarantee that a deal will happen. Buffalo wants a quarterback (why they would consider Barkley is beyond me, but who cares about the Bills setting themselves up for another decade of futility). This also would seem to indicate that the Rams think the Jets will take Austin with the ninth pick, because who better to maximize an offensive weapon like that than an offense led by Mark Sanchez!

There's also this:

Just remember, Les Snead learned his GM chop under Thomas Dimitroff in Atlanta. They swung a big deal to move up and get Julio Jones back in 2011. He's clearly a guy not afraid to move around to get his man.
