A day after going down awkwardly in a preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, there have been multiple reports that Rams quarterback Sam Bradford will miss the entire NFL season with a torn ACL in his left knee. The tear is to the same ACL that Bradford suffered last season.
This is extremely bad news for Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams. This poor guy cannot catch a break. Last year, Bradford only played in seven games and now he set to miss an entire season. Bradford was the last quarterback to sign a huge rookie contract under the previous CBA without rookie pay scale. Not sure he has earned that money yet and with the Rams seemingly having to make a move at QB again, he may not have a chance to make top dollar with another contract.
The Rams are now forced to give the reigns to quarterback Shaun Hill for the season. Hill is a decent option but with only 6th round rookie Garrett Gilbert on the roster, the Rams may go out and try to acquire a veteran signal-caller.
