NFL Rumors: St. Louis Rams have no intentions of extending Sam Bradford


The St. Louis Rams have been looking at ways they can improve the franchise, and they thought that drafting Sam Bradford would help lift them from the depths of the NFC West. But while the division they’re in is suddenly the best in all of football, the Rams are still hanging low in the rankings and are only starting to crawl out of their funk.

All of the losing has a lot of fans wondering what the future of Sam Bradford is and so far the Rams are not ready to commit to him. After unwillingly having to invest boatloads of money in their No. 1 draft pick, S. Louis is not ready to invest long-term in Bradford and are not handing him an extension anytime soon.

Per Jason LaCanfora from CBS Sports:

Oh, and with $27M owed to him over the next two years, the Rams have absolutely no intention of extending QB Sam Bradford – contrary to a midseason NFL report — but must decide if they still want him around since he’s already received all of his guaranteed money.

This doesn’t mean the Rams will be spending the No. 2 overall pick on a quarterback, but it does mean taking one in the draft is likely. Bradford is on thin ice with the Rams and he needs to turn it around before the Rams lose complete faith in him as their quarterback.

    the rams are the last team stuck with an old CBA contract. i believe the decision to wait is worth it, the ravens took a chance and had to pay for it but they also got their super bowl victory. i feel that sam needs to at least get us to the playoffs then they can talk about extending him
