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. 


Sam Bradford says knee feels 'really good'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/20/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford said his surgically-repaired knee feels "really good" following OTA workouts. Bradford is coming off last year's torn ACL.

"I think part of it is building up the endurance in my legs," Bradford said. "I can kind of feel a little bit of fatigue today, but I think that's normal just not having been out here practicing like that. That's really what I'm going to work on during this five-week break."

Coach Jeff Fisher was glad to see Bradford able to participate in OTAs.

"We had a plan throughout," Fisher said. "We allowed him to do some things in the skill development, and he did. We got him on the field in the first couple OTAs. Just in the passing fashion he was good. Then today and obviously on Tuesday, he participated in team periods - that was encouraging. He's got a plan for the summer. He's going to get away for a little bit. He needs to get away. He's been here every day, and he'll come back ready to go."

Fisher still believes in Bradford as a franchise quarterback.

"Yeah, there’s no doubt," Fisher said. "He's got the vision, the decision making ability, the arm strength and mobility to put up great numbers."


Sam Bradford takes a rest Thursday


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/6/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford didn't practice on Thursday, though it was scheduled that way according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Bradford is still working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last season. 

"[Y]ou'll be able to see him (Friday)," Fisher said. "We're going to have him participate in about half of the OTAs. He'll probably get five of them in. (Friday) he's going to throw two 7-on-7 periods. He threw a 7-on-7 period with the 1s on Tuesday."

Fisher did admit that Bradford looked "really good" on Tuesday and thought it was the right thing to do to keep him out of team drills. After putting on some upper-body weight while rehabbing, Bradford is fully expected to participate in training camp.

Rams call Sam Bradford "our guy"


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) There had been a number of reports suggesting the Rams were serious about drafting Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in the NFL draft, but on Tuesday night the team made their feelings about quarterback Sam Bradford clear. 

During a draft party for 2,000 season-ticket holders, Rams coach Jeff Fisher got on a stage right next to Bradford and told the crowd "Sam's our guy." The crowd gave a standing ovation. 

Bradford appeared to have put on some upper-body muscle, per the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. He also had some strong knowledge about the Rams' plans around their Manziel smokescreen as league sources say he knew all along the team was going to check in on the prospect but not draft him. 

Bradford has two years left on his current contract. Last year he threw 14 touchdowns in seven games before tearing his ACL and missing the entire season.

Fisher: Bradford 'realistically' ahead of schedule


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/21/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher figures quarterback Sam Bradford will at least throw during OTAs this spring, he told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Bradford is working his way back from a torn ACL. According to Fisher, saying Bradford is ahead of schedule isn't just lip service. 

"You're not gonna hear a head coach say he has a player on his team that's not ahead of schedule coming off an ACL. Everybody says they're all ahead of schedule. But he is realistically way ahead of schedule. He's working hard," Fisher said. 

Fisher predicts Bradford will be ready to go for the start of the season and even progress to the next step of his career, but the Rams are still sniffing around quarterbacks. The Post-Dispatch says "signs point" to the team drafting a quarterback in May, if only for precautionary reasons since Bradford has two years left on his current deal.

Sam Bradford facing make-or-break year


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"This will be Bradford's 3rd season with [Brian] Schottenheimer as the OC. If things aren't clicking in Year III  ... then when?" the paper said.

Bradford is signed through 2015. He's owed $17.6 million this year and $16.5 million next year.


Sam Bradford could start throwing in May


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead both said positive things in regards to quarterback Sam Bradford on Friday.

Fisher said Bradford, who suffered a torn ACL last season, is scheduled to start throwing in late May and early June during OTA workouts, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Jeff Fisher backs Sam Bradford


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Rams coach Jeff Fisher told ESPN that Sam Bradford will be the starting quarterback in 2014 and still has the chance to earn a contract extension. Bradford is coming back from last year's 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."

Fisher would not commit, however, to a new contract for Bradford, but he didn't rule it out. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora reported that Bradford is unlikely to get a long-term deal, and he's due $27 million over the next two years.

"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."


La Canfora: Rams not expected to extend Sam Bradford's deal


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford is not expected to get a contract extension, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

LaCanfora reports that a source says the Rams are open to an extension for Bradford, who is due $27 million over the next two years. But a longer deal would still be a surprise to many because adding guaranteed money beyond the current deal would make it cumbersome for the team to part with Bradford.

Bradford is coming off a torn ACL from last season but is expected to make a full recovery in time for the start of the 2014 season.


Rams looking to add quarterback in draft


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Sam Bradford: 'I think we're close'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, who's recovering from ACL surgery, likes what he saw from the offense over the second half of the season. "The way that we were able to establish the run and get the running game going on offense, and then set up some of the play-action stuff," Bradford told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I felt like our younger guys really came along, especially towards the end.

"You look at what Sted (Stedman Bailey) was able to do. You know, his role increased as the season went along. I think Tavon (Austin) became more comfortable, obviously before his injury. And Zac (Stacy) played tremendous, not only running the football but being able to come in and handle all the protections and being able to hold up on third down. That's not easy. That's tough on a young guy.

"So I definitely think that this football team made some strides and got better as the year went along."

Bradford said there's no reason the Rams, who finished 7-9, can't make the playoffs in 2014.

"I think we're close," he said. "Like I said earlier, I think it's a matter of us being more consistent and playing to our fullest potential each week, and not having those drops where we don't perform that way some weeks. But you look at some of our wins this year, some of the teams that we beat. Beat New Orleans who was a playoff team. Beat Indy who was a playoff team.

"So it's not far off. I think everyone saw that we have the talent to compete and to play with anyone. It's just a matter of us just finishing a few more games."
