The St. Louis Rams are entering the offseason with a boatload of questions once again. First and foremost, the Rams need to decide what they are going to do with the second-overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. On top of that, St. Louis apparently isn’t too sold on its quarterback, who is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered toward the end of October.
Sam Bradford isn’t a top-10 quarterback in the league and he’s very overpaid. However, the Rams are much better off keeping Bradford around then trying to reinvent the wheel and draft another signal-caller. Sure, Bradford is making upwards of $26 million over the next two years, but that’s the nature of the beast when dealing with a former number-one pick who is a quarterback.
The biggest thing with Bradford is going to be his health. A torn ACL is nothing minor, as we all saw Robert Griffin III struggle mightily in 2013. Thankfully, Bradford isn’t nearly as mobile as Griffin to begin with. Also, Bradford’s process has gone much smoother than RG3’s as the Rams’ quarterback said on Thursday that “Barring any major setbacks, I feel very confident for camp.”
If Bradford starts the year for St. Louis, then the Rams will soon see that this quarterback is hardly a flop.
