    INDIANAPOLIS – Rams coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead spoke with the media Friday at the Scouting Combine.

    Here are some quick points:

    Fisher on playing in London: “If you have to play the Patriots, it’s best not to play them in North America.”

    On whether signing defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been discussed: Fisher said players that are already free agents like Haynesworth are being considered. “He’s one of them we’ve talked about,” Fisher said. “That doesn’t mean we will do anything.”

    On moving too far down in the draft when making a trade: “If you go low, you can always move back up.”

    On the Rams’ own free agents like wide receiver Brandon Lloyd: “We’re having discussions about most of them.”

    On Bell, Fisher said, “He has ability. He played well at the end of the season (before being injured). We were sad to lose him in Tennessee.”

    On whether drafting a quarterback at second overall is possible: “Let’s be realistic. Our organization has made an investment in Sam (Bradford). That would not be one of our top needs right now.”

    On that same subject, Snead said, “He’s our quarterback, and we’re glad we have him. There is no scenario where that would happen.”

    On tackle Jason Smith’s concussion problem: Fisher said, “There’s no doubt he will be able to return and play. That’s behind him.”

    Snead, however, did say, “With any player, you want reliability. With the issues he’s had, that is a concern.”

    On the team’s roster, Snead said, “We have lots of needs. But, the previous guys did a nice job cleaning this place up leaving some young pillars that we can build around.”

    On the difference for him at this Combine: “Before I was a lieutenant. For this one, you put on your architect hat.”

    Snead said by the end of his first week of meetings with the team’s personnel department, “We were on the same page.”
