According to Nick Wagoner of ESPN, the St. Louis Rams are very committed to keeping Sam Bradford as the franchise quarterback for the foreseeable future. There have been rumors swirling for the last couple of weeks that the Rams could consider drafting a quarterback with the second overall pick in the draft that they acquired from Washington. All that being said, the franchise has made it very clear that they are committed to Bradford as their future.
In addition to committing to Bradford, the Rams have also made it clear that they will listen to offers for their second overall draft pick. The Rams made a very similar deal just a couple short years ago with the Washington Redskins that ended up sending Robert Griffin III to the Redskins.
“Boy, that would be great. You never know through this process what other teams are thinking and who they really like. And then you’ve got to go through the interview process. And if it’s one to two to three quarterbacks, and those guys went in interviews and all of a sudden, maybe so. When you’ve been on a team that’s looking for a QB, you’re going to at all costs try to go get that QB. I mean there’s a possibility.” – Les Snead on Rams Trading #2 Pick
The Rams had Sam Bradford for seven game this past season before losing him to injury. He accumulated 1,687 yards, 14 touchdowns, and just four interceptions. His decision making improved an incredible amount this year and it’s obvious that the coaching staff has done a great job working with him.
Bradford tore his ACL this past season, and that certainly will bring up concerns about his future. He was having a fairly good season with St. Louis and showed quite a bit of improvement in multiple areas of his game. Assuming he’s able to come back completely healthy, he’s going to have another good season next year.
