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.
