Jeff Fisher: Sam Bradford is the Rams quarterback

Sam Bradford

St. louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher says he’s committed to Sam Bradford as the team’s starting quarterback.

Fisher told ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” that Bradford is making  good progress in his rehab from a torn ACL.

“Sam’s doing great with the rehab,” Fisher said. “He’s really excited. He took on a leadership role last year and he’s maintained that and he’s our quarterback, and we’ve said that.”

Bradford is heading into the fifth year of a sixth-year contract that is set to count $17.6 million against the club’s salary cap.  Some reports have speculated that the Rams could cut Bradford or redo his contract.

“We talk about extensions with all our players under contract,” Fisher said. “Whether or not we do so with him, I don’t know where all this came from, but Sam’s our quarterback. He’s going to be under center,” Fisher said.

Bradford threw for 1,687 yards and 14 touchdowns in seven games last season.

    I have a lot of respect for Fischer but on this one he is dead wrong. Bradford even when healthy has been unable to consistently put the ball into the endzone. Since he has been at the helm the passing game has struggled mightily even with a plethora of different wideouts and offensive linemen. Bradford has always ranked in the bottom half of the QB rankings. And now add the injury to a QB who was never mobile in the first place. With the unique position of having the second pick of the entire draft, Fischer must take advantage and get his QB now.
