After getting battered by San Francisco, maybe Rams quarterback Sam Bradford should ‘rush’ to renegotiate

Sam Bradford may want to reconsider and ink a new pact.

Sam Bradford and the Rams looked atrocious in a 35-11 loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night in St. Louis.

Getting picked in the 49ers’ end zone minutes before halftime, the 25-year-old Bradford finished 19 for 41 with a touchdown.

Prior to the drubbing, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that St. Louis is “willing to re-do Sam Bradford’s contract now.”

Taken first overall out of Oklahoma in 2010, Bradford and the Rams agreed to a six-year deal worth $78 million a few months after the draft on July 30.

Owed approximately $30 million through the end of the 2015 season, the 2010 AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year is apparently in “no rush” to renegotiate.

Sitting in the basement of the NFC West at 1-3, St. Louis and Bradford must quickly rebound to remain competitive.

The 6-foot-4, 225 pound Bradford has tossed seven scores, against three interceptions, for 1,093 yards over four games.

Despite posting solid stats, the former Sooner has completed a substandard 58.8% of his 182 attempts.

Being a pinpoint passer is absolutely critical and Bradford has been borderline erratic in defeats to the Cowboys, Falcons and 49ers.

Finally working with quality weapons, Bradford is targeting tight end Jared Cook and receivers Tavon Austin, Brian Quick and Chris Givens in a four-wide package designed by coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

A traditionally feeble organization, Rams general manager Les Snead did a commendable job assembling talent and Bradford now has even more to prove in “The Show Me State.”

Next playing in Jacksonville on October 6, Bradford needs to scorch the Jaguars’ secondary and lead St. Louis to victory.

If unable to tame the toothless cats, Sam Bradford should reconsider and “rush” to ink a new contract.
