- Snead added that Bradford will remain the team’s starting quarterback moving forward.
“Sam’s doing great with the rehab,” Fisher said, via Pro Football Talk. “He’s really excited. He took on a leadership role last year and he’s maintained that and he’s our quarterback, and we’ve said that.”
“We talk about extensions with all our players under contract. Whether or not we do so with him, I don’t know where all this came from, but Sam’s our quarterback. He’s going to be under center,” Fisher said.
On Monday, Jason La Canfora originally mentioned in his cap casualties column that St. Louis has “absolutely no intention” of re-signing Bradford, but later changed it to the Rams being “open to an extension.”
Ed Werder spoke with Rams GM Les Snead regarding Bradford who mentioned; “We have been — and still are — open to extending Sam.”
Fisher wasn’t willing to offer any details regarding a possible extension for Bradford.
Bradford, 26, still has two years remaining on his contract with base salaries of $14.015 million and $12.985 million coming way during this time. As things stand right now, he has a $17.6 million cap figure next season, which means he represents an easy source of cap space if the Rams were to get him signed to an extension.
The Rams basically have no cap room to work with right now, so it seems almost certain that roster moves will be coming at some point in the near future.
