Rams QB coach is a big fan of Sam Bradford


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Rams quarterbacks coach Chris Weinke is perfectly happy with starting quarterback Sam Bradford, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Love him. Love him," Weinke said when asked about Bradford. Weinke, who has evaluated quarterbacks for a couple of seasons now, said Bradford had one of the best pro days he's ever seen. "A few years ago when Andrew Luck came out they said who would you compare him to? And I said the closest I would see is Sam Bradford."

As part of Weinke's interview process with the team, he met with Bradford for roughly three-and-a-half hours. It wasn't really a formal meeting, though, it was more so the two could get to know eachother. 

Bradford has reportedly been granted permission to seek a trade, but it doesn't appear Rams' ownership wants to part with the 27-year-old quarterback. 


Reports conflict on Bills' interest in Sam Bradford


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2015) Citing multiple league sources, Yahoo Sports reported that the Bills are pursuing a trade for Rams quarterback Sam Bradford

Bills beat writer Vic Carucci, of the Buffalo News, disputed the report, saying "a source in the know" said the Bills are not pursuing Bradford. 

Bradford missed all of last season after tearing his ACL in the preseason, the second-straight season he's suffered that injury. 


Rams' Jeff Fisher downplays possible trade rumors for QB Sam Bradford


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) The Rams have reportedly been looking into possible trade options for quarterback Sam Bradford. However, coach Jeff Fisher said Friday he does not believe a deal will be made, according to Cleveland.com.

"I was surprised to hear that," said Fisher. "That's inaccurate. No, I mean. We talked about what our plans are for him."

Fisher also said Bradford is their guy heading into the 2015 season. 

"They know that we've been without our first round pick and starting quarterback," Fisher said of the Rams' faithful. "When we've had him, he's 5-2-1 in our division. And we weren't very good when we got here, so we're counting on him. I'm betting on him and if that doesn't happen, then we'll win games with somebody else."


Report: Browns interested in trading for Rams QB Bradford


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) With the Browns' quarterback situation in flux at the moment, there is considerable interest within the organization in acquiring a starting-caliber option this offseason.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Browns are interested in trading for Rams quarterback Sam Bradford. The goal would be to acquire Bradford by only having to give up a second- or third-round pick.

However, the report also states that Bradford has let the Rams know he would not like to be traded.

The Browns are also reportedly interested in quarterback Josh McCown, who was recently cut by the Buccaneers.


Fisher: Rams not letting Sam Bradford seek trade


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said that QB Sam Bradford is not seeking a trade. 

Two days after reports surfaced that the Rams had given Bradford's agent permission to speak to other teams, Fisher addressed the rumor. 

Speaking at the Indianapolis scouting combine on Friday, Fisher said that the previous reports were "inaccurate". 

While he doesn't forsee dealing Bradford, Fisher added that the team will look to add quarterback depth in the offseason. "I don’t know what that’s going to look like,” he said. “It could be a veteran, could be a draft pick."


Rams QB Sam Bradford has permission to seek trade


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford has permission to request a trade, and his agent will speak with other teams this offseason, reports CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. Because the Rams may have a high asking price for Bradford, the team may prefer to restructure his deal, which could be the most likely outcome, according to La Canfora.

In response to La Canfora's report, general manager Les Snead said "deleting him (from the roster) is not the answer," per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Bradford, the No. 1 overall draft pick by the Rams in 2010, is coming off his second torn ACL in as many years, and is scheduled to make $12.98 million in base salary in 2015, the last year of his contract. Releasing Bradford would save the team $12.98 million of Bradford's $16.6 million cap charge. Bradford has a career 58.6 completion percentage with 11,065 yards and 59 touchdowns.


Rams' Sam Bradford had say in offensive coordinator hire


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2015) When Rams coach Jeff Fisher made the decision to promote Frank Cignetti from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator, he said quarterback Sam Bradford played a role in the promotion, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"I had a lengthy discussion with Sam, yes, prior to making the decision," Fisher said. "It was part of the information gathering process. Sam was very forthcoming. He had some firm opinions. I really enjoyed and appreciated his input."

Fisher added that he expects Bradford to be ready for the 2015 season and the plan is for him to compete for the starting role, so the team can have quality options if Bradford suffers another season-ending injury.

"It's not as much from the standpoint of challenging Sam," Fisher said. "It's to have options. We don't know what that looks like right now. We don't know if that's draft, if that's free agency, or what that looks like. But when we line up in September, we'll have somebody there."


Rams wants to restructure Sam Bradford's contract


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/8/2015) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is scheduled to make $12.98 million in base salary in 2015, the last year of his contract. With Bradford coming off his second torn ACL in as many years, the Rams want to restructure the deal, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The paper suggests the Rams could reduce Bradford's base salary "while potentially putting in incentives that could allow Bradford to recoup much of that money." Releasing Bradford would save the team $12.98 million of Bradford's $16.6 million cap charge.

Coach Jeff Fisher said immediately after the season that Bradford will face competition for the starting job from "somebody that's not in the building right now." That excludes backup quarterback Shaun Hill, an impending free agent.


Rams QB Sam Bradford will have to compete for starting job


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said quarterback Sam Bradford will have to compete for the starting job in 2015 "with somebody that's not in the building right now." Serious knee injuries ended each of Bradford's last two seasons, and the team wants to restructure his contract, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Fisher did not get specific on the quarterback competition. Backup Shaun Hill is set to hit free agency.

"What that looks like, I can't tell you right now -- from a draft standpoint or from free agency," Fisher said. "But [Bradford] will be competing. We have some work to do obviously, from a contractual standpoint, but I'm confident we'll sort some things out."

Bradford said his rehab is going well, and he threw on the side at practice last week.


Rams' Sam Bradford doubted comeback after second knee injury


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is currently rehabbing from his second torn ACL in as many years, but has had doubts about returning to the game.

Bradford told reporters Tuesday there was a part of him that was done with football after tearing his ACL in August just before the start of the season. A phone call with current University of Oklahoma offensive coordinator Josh Heupel helped to get him on the right track mentally.

Bradford still believes St. Louis is the best place for him and he still has a lot to prove.

He has only played two full seasons in the league since being drafted No. 1 overall by the Rams in 2010. He has a career 58.6 completion percentage with 11,065 yards and 59 touchdowns. 

No timetable has been set for Bradford's return to the field, but the team will be more deliberate with their rehab during the offseason.

"He's done everything we needed to see right now at practice," coach Jeff Fisher said. "So he's going to play in the preseason; unlikely that he's going to play this week. ... It's not because he can't; it's because it's our choice."


Sam Bradford thinks his arm is stronger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/3/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is noticeably bigger in his upper body thanks to a rehab in which he couldn't work out much else, reports ESPN.com. Bradford, coming off knee surgery, suggested his arm might be stronger, and his passes seem "to be coming out with as much or more velocity than in years past," the report said.

On Saturday, "Bradford had plenty of zip on all of his passes, none more than the perfectly thrown 60-plus yard touchdown pass he threw to receiver Kenny Britt." 

"Coming into this camp is probably the strongest I’ve been from the waist up and I think it probably has paid off a little bit," Bradford said. "I feel like I do have a little more zip on the ball and feel like I can make some of those throws that maybe were a little slower last year."


Fisher impressed by Sam Bradford's explosive plays


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher told the media Thursday that the most impressive part of Sam Bradford's training camp thus far isn't just that he's back on the field after tearing an ACL, but that the passing game has become much more explosive. 

"We are getting a lot more explosive plays," Fisher explained. "Sam's throwing the ball real well. The balls going down the field on time to Kenny (Britt) and to (Brian) Quick and to Tavon (Austin) and Cookie (Jared Cook) and all the guys. ... Now, before you put the shoulder pads on there's a lot of congestion in the pocket, but now the pocket's starting to clean itself up because offense has pads on things are starting to even out a little bit, so we're getting time to make those throws."

Before getting hurt in 2013 Bradford averaged 241.0 passing yards and two touchdowns per game. 


Sam Bradford 'full-go' for start of training camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher said quarterback Sam Bradford (knee) will be "full-go" for the start of training camp, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Sam is in great shape," Fisher said. "He's ready to go. We don't have (reservations) — right now as we speak, as camp starts — he's full-go. If we need to back him down here and there, we'll back him down."

Fisher indicated Bradford may not play in the preseason opener against New Orleans. But if Bradford doesn't play vs. the Saints, Fisher said it won't be injury-related.


Healthy Sam Bradford won't be asked to do too much


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford appears to be on schedule for a return to health from his season-ending knee injury, and the Rams expect him to be close to or at full speed for the start of camp, reports ESPN.

Bradford will get a third season in coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's offense, but it's safe to assume the Rams won't ask Bradford to carry the load for what will likely be a run-heavy offense.

The Rams have clearly abandoned the spread approach they were installing this time last year, but they will almost certainly be more balanced than they were after Bradford's injury in 2013.
