The 49ers "acquired" a conditional 2012 draft pick from the Rams in exchange for Isaac Bruce in Wednesday's ceremonial trade.
As we suspected, you can't make a trade for nothing in the NFL. The pick's "condition", of course, is that Bruce will play in 2011, which he won't. It's worth nothing that the sides had to execute a trade because the 49ers were unwilling to release Bruce outright. According to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat's Howard Balzer, the Niners feared he'd sign with the Bears.
