Summary

Sam Bradford was on his way to his best NFL season in 2013 prior to missing the final nine games with a knee injury. Through sevne games, Bradford was on pace for 32 touchdowns, nine interceptions, and career-best marks in completion rate and passer rating. The Rams went on to miss the playoffs in a tough NFC west and the passing offense went into hibernation without Bradford out of the lineup. With rumos of St.Louis drafting Johnny Manziel or a potential challenger to Sam Bradford in the NFL draft, the Rams bolstered the offensive line instead and added running back Tre Mason on offense instead. With three middling seasons, two extended stints missed with injuries, and one partial season of relevance, Sam Bradford has reached a crossroads in his career. Bradford has two years left on his initial rookie contract which is a significant chunk of the team's salary cap. With his best offensive line to-date, Bradford will have to elevate the play of a hodge-podge of passing weapons. Tavon Austin is eletric, but closer to a role player than offensive centerpiece. Brian Quick and Kenny Britt have not had a string of quality play in years. Stedman Bailey and Austin Pettis are efficient, but secondary NFL targets. Jared Cook and Lance Kendricks are one of the least promising tight end duos in the NFL. Sam Bradford has 35 touchdowns and 17 interceptions over his last 23 games, spanning two seasons. With nearly identical weapons to last year and an improved offensive line, Sam Bradford has his best opportunity to succeed in his career. (May 11)

Our View: Great performance for Bradford on Saturday. He needs to stay healthy and start playing up to his potential, or the Rams are going to start looking elsewhere for a franchise quarterback.

Rams | Sam Bradford ready for contact (Sat Aug 16, 02:53 PM) - St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) said it will be nice to get hit in his first game coming back after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament last season. He said it will nice knowing that everything's fine after he's been hit for the first time. The St. Louis Rams play the Green Bay Packers Saturday, Aug. 16.

Our View: This is it for Bradford and the Rams. He's in a make-or-break season in 2014. Bradford needs to stay healthy and prove that he was worth the number one overall pick in 2010. If he struggles this year, the Rams could move on to find a franchise quarterback somewhere else.

Rams | Sam Bradford will play next week (Sat Aug 9, 06:56 PM) - St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) will play in the second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 16.

Our View: It's good for the Rams to be cautious here. It's a make-or-break year for Bradford in 2014. He needs to stay healthy and prove that he's the franchise quarterback the team envisioned when they selected him No.1 overall in the 2010 NFL draft.
