Devaney: No contact with Bucs

Tis the season for lots NFL draft smokescreens, so take this for what it's worth: Rams general manager Billy Devaney says he's had no contact with the Bucs regarding a potential trade involving the first and third overall choices.

Devaney, participating in an NFL.com chat, wrote: "I am being completely honest when I say I have not talked to anyone in Tampa Bay. I'm not saying that won't happen at some point but to date there is absolutely nothing going on."

I believe Devaney. Teams generally do not have serious trade discussions this far out. They haven't even fully evaluated the players at this point.
