Rams appear committed to Sam Bradford

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams, at least on the surface, appear committed to rolling with Sam Bradford as their quarterback in 2015. Bradford, who missed all of 2014 and has missed 31 games in his five seasons with St. Louis, is set to make $13M this year at a cap hit of $16M-plus, still remains their best option. While reports indicate the team will look to restructure Bradford's contract going into next year, he apparently was a big part of St. Louis' search for an offensive coordinator. Bradford's quarterback coach, Frank Cignetti, was recently promoted to that position.

"I had a lengthy discussion with Sam, yes, prior to making the decision," Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said at Cignetti's introductory press conference. "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 indicated that Bradford has "been in the building since the season ended. He's doing well," and mentioned that St. Louis plans to bring in some other options at the position, whether that's through the draft or free agency.
