Sam Bradford will ‘return to the Rams’ lineup in 2014’

Sam Bradford is the best man to lead the Rams.

St. Louis offered Sam Bradford another vote of confidence on Tuesday and said their hobbled quarterback will “return to the Rams’ lineup in 2014.”

The 25-year-old Bradford suffered a torn left ACL in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 30-15 loss to the Panthers in Charlotte.

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 $27 million through the end of the 2015 season, the 2010 AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year recently declined to renegotiate his contract.

The 6-foot-4, 225 pound Bradford tossed 14 scores, against four interceptions, for 1,687 yards over seven games.

Often criticized for lacking accuracy in the pocket, the former Sooner also completed an impressive 60.7% of his 262 attempts.

Despite sitting in the basement of the NFC West at 3-4, Bradford mainly thrived operating in a four-wide package designed by coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

Unfortunately for the Rams, their defense has floundered and is currently ranked 24th in the league.

Les Snead did a solid job assembling offensive weapons and the young general manager now needs to focus on acquiring talent on the other side of the ball.

Provided a healthy Sam Bradford resurfaces, a diversified Rams squad could soon become a force in “The Show Me State.”
