Rams Hoping To Restructure Sam Bradford’s Contract This Offseason

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes that the Rams would like to restructure QB Sam Bradford‘s contract this offseason.

Bradford stands to make a $12.985 million base salary for the 2015 season. However, Thomas suggests the Rams could try to reduce that figure while offering him the ability to recoup the saving through incentives that could be added to his contract.

This remains one of the more interesting negotiations to watch in the coming weeks, as there is at least a small chance that the Rams could release him in the event that he’s unwilling to renegotiate his current salary.

For what it’s worth, the Rams would free up $12.985 million by releasing Bradford outright. This would also create $3.595 million in dead money, but the cap saving would easily be enough to justify such as move.

All indications from the Rams are that they would like to retain Bradford for another season and add a quarterback either in free agency or the draft.

Bradford, 27, has yet to live up to his draft status and is now coming off of back-to-back ACL tears, so there are some real concerns about him moving forward.

The problem for the Rams is that there won’t be any solid quarterback options, unless they move up for one of the top-two quarterback prospects in the draft.

Bradford last appeared in an NFL game during the 2013 season. He finished the year throwing for 1,687 yards while completing 60.7 percent of his passes to go along with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions over the course of seven games.

    Toomy_Fitz, Bradford is not done and the Rams should apologize to him for letting him be continually hit from having a terrible o-line. Like I have said before , it’s hard to throw while on the ground.

    When will the Rams accept the fact that Bradford is pretty much done and this team has the talent to win this division with a healthy talented QB………….!

      When you accept the fact that the Rams mismanaged his career by letting him play with a bunch of bums

    Hoping?… You’re kidding me, right?
    Sam Bradford should be paying them to play.
    I feel for him tearing his ACL twice, but there’s no way he’s not taking a pay cut.
    He’s been average at best and I’m not so sure he can be much better, especially after those tears.
    GO RAMS!
