Sam Bradford not ready to think about future with Rams

Friday September 5th, 2014

Sam Bradford said he is not ready to think about his future with the St. Louis Rams after tearing his ACL for the second time in less than a year, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jim Thomas reports.

Bradford tore his left ACL during the Rams' Aug. 23 preseason game and will miss the entire 2014 season. His 2013 season was ended in October with the same injury.

The 26-year-old was the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft and has one season left on his rookie contract which will pay him a base salary of $13 million. Bradford said he is still coming to grips with his latest injury and not speculating on his future.

"You know, I can't focus on that right now," Bradford said. "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."

During his first four seasons, Bradford started 49 games and threw for 11,065 yards, 59 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He has only played in all 16 games once during his career.
