Report: Zac Stacy responds to Todd Gurley pick with trade request

The Rams surprised some people by drafting running back Todd Gurley with the 10th overall pick on Thursday night and there were a wide variety of responses to the move.

There were those who liked the upside, those who worried that Gurley’s knee might limit his effectiveness as a rookie and those that thought the Rams should have picked a wide receiver. And then there was Rams running back Zac Stacy, who took to Twitter with a heavy dose of self-awareness of what Gurley’s arrival means for him.

“Yikes,” Stacy wrote in a tweet that has since been deleted.

That reportedly wasn’t Stacy’s only response. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Stacy has requested a trade now that he’s part of a depth chart that also includes Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham. Schefter adds that the team is open to moving him, which could happen for a third day pick if a team thinks Stacy offers more than a member of this year’s draft class.
