St. Louis Rams quarterbarck, Sam Bradford, was on the verge of tears when he met with the media on Thursday. Bradford is out for the season after tearing an ACL on August 23rd, in a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. This is the second time in a year that Bradford has torn an ACL, in the same knee to boot. After missing last season, Bradford worked extremely hard through rehab to get back on the field for the Rams this season.
Via St. Louis Post-Gazette,
“You know, I can’t focus on that right now. I think it’s a little too soon. I haven’t even thought that far ahead. It’s still pretty hard to comprehend [the injury] right now.”
It’s a tough position Bradford and the St Louis Rams are in moving forward. If Bradford isn’t thinking of the future he may need to. The quarterback is signed for this season as well as next season with a price tag of $13 million for the 2015 season. Bradford hasn’t blown anyone away with his play when he actually was on the field so hard to justify such a salary at this point. It’s likely that the Rams at least choose to bring in some competition if they plan to keep Bradford at all, especially at $13 million or they might opt to just replace him entirely. Bradford will most likely take a pay cut to stay a Ram.
