Sam Bradford: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bradford (knee) participated in competitive drills Tuesday for the first time this offseason,'s Albert Breer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Bradford participated in the 7-on-7 portion of practice but not in full-team drills. It still marks a significant step in Bradford's recovery from a torn ACL, especially in the wake of recent reports suggesting that he's no lock to be ready for Week 1. Assuming he's healthy by the end of training camp, Bradford is the favorite to start Week 1, although head coach Chip Kelly made it quite clear that Mark Sanchez will also get to compete for the job. The team has invested far more resources in Bradford, but Sanchez has already played under Kelly for a year.
Bradford (knee) has been limited to start Eagles' OTA's, reports.

The Browns are still interested in acquiring Bradford (knee), but a trade is unlikely to happen because the quarterback wants to play for Philadelphia, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The implication is that Bradford wouldn't be willing to sign an extension with the Browns, which makes the team unlikely to surrender a high draft pick in exchange for the 27-year-old former No. 1 overall draft pick. Bradford only has one season remaining on his rookie contract, and he seemingly likes the idea of finally playing for a team that's had some recent success.
Bradford (knee) is expected to resume throwing by OTAs, Albert Breer of NFL Network reports.

Bradford (knee) will be traded to the Eagles in exchange for fellow quarterback Nick Foles,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

With Foles headed the other way to St. Louis, Bradford becomes the clear favorite to start for the Eagles in Week 1. It now seems much less likely that the team will trade up to draft Marcus Mariota, though it still shouldn't be ruled out, as Bradford has just one year remaining on his contract and has largely been mediocre. If Bradford does indeed start for the Eagles, he'll be in charge of a fast-paced offense with an excellent offensive line and questionable skill-position weapons. Of course, with much of the offseason still to come, Philadelphia still has time to replace LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin. This could provide a huge boost to Bradford's fantasy value, given that Mark Sanchez provided serviceable numbers as the Eagles' starting quarterback late last season. Sanchez was recently re-signed to a two-year contract, but he's unlikely to start over a healthy Bradford. Also worth keeping in mind is that Bradford is coming back from the second torn ACL of his career.
The Rams are looking to restructure the final year of Bradford's (knee) contract, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Bradford indicated that his rehab from the torn ACL that he sustained on Aug. 23 is going well at this stage, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. "Iíve been running for the past couple weeks," Bradford noted Tuesday. "Really seem to have kind of turned the corner in the past three or four weeks as far as what Iím doing in rehab now...There havenít been any setbacks.Ē

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bradford thus figures to be ready to go by the time training camp rolls around in advance the 2015 season. At that time, the report suggests that he'll have to compete for the team's starting assignment. "Thereís going to be competition at the quarterback position, thereís no doubt," according to coach Jeff Fisher. "With somebody thatís not in the building right now. Weíre hopeful for that." Meanwhile, Bradford -- who is due $13 million in base salary in 2015 on the final year of his rookie deal -- is a candidate to have his deal tweaked, with Fisher suggesting on that front that he is "confident we'll sort some things out."

Bradford's 2014 season was cut short by another torn left ACL, which paves the way for Shaun Hill to take over as the Rams' starting QB.


When Bradford posted 3,512 yards and 18 touchdowns as a rookie in 2010, many believed the next great fantasy quarterback was upon us. In the past two seasons, though, Bradford hasn't been able to complete 60 percent of his passes. There were many signs of improvement last year, however, including career-highs in YPA (6.7), touchdowns (21) and yards (3,702). Although the Rams let go of running back Steven Jackson, Bradford will actually have a better supporting cast in 2013 than ever before. St. Louis made it a priority to upgrade its offense in the offseason, adding tight end Jared Cook in free agency and drafting college teammates Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey to play wide receiver. The Rams also signed offensive tackle Jake Long Ė a move that could actually be more valuable to Bradford than the acquisitions of the skill players.


For Bradford, 2012 needs to be the year he breaks out. It takes a leap of faith to expect it to happen, but he just seems too talented to fail. Moreover, the Rams have finally given him some talent at wideout. Second-round pick Brian Quick is a big (6-3, 220) target with a huge wingspan, and fourth-round pick Chris Givens is a field stretcher who should at least have the effect of a poor manís Torrey Smith. In addition, second-round running back Isaiah Pead will give Bradford a dangerous home-run threat in the backfield thatís bound to make some plays on screen passes. Bradford could make an Alex Smith-like jump in 2012 after averaging just six yards per pass and throwing 24 touchdowns and 21 interceptions in his first 26 NFL games.


Considering he missed most of his final collegiate season in 2009 at Oklahoma with a shoulder injury, Bradfordís rookie year was promising. In addition to having his team in the hunt for a (weak as the NFC West might be) division title, Bradford threw more touchdowns (18) than interceptions (15) and completed 60 percent of his passes. As a smart player with a quick release and rare accuracy, Bradford only figures to improve. The additions of offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, tight end Lance Kendricks (second round) and wideouts Austin Pettis (third round) and Greg Salas (fourth round) are all helpful, too.


The Rams seem committed to throwing Bradford into the fire. If Bradford does have to throw a lot, as Matthew Stafford did in Ď09, the results will not be pretty nor productive for your fantasy squad ó especially if your league subtracts for picks. Bradford also has some injury risk as he was beaten up last year at Oklahoma. Any No. 1 overall pick with the level of production Bradford achieved in college is worthy of keeper league consideration. But beyond that, avoid.
