Bradford tears ACL, what’s next?

By David Demarco, Editor

In a make it or break it year for former first overall pick Sam Bradford, the young quarterback’s future hinges on a seven game display that was cut short Sunday afternoon . After a late night MRI, it’s been confirmed that Bradford has suffered a torn ACL that will require season ending surgery. Thought of as the year Bradford would live up to his his potential as a franchise quarterback, he will spend the upcoming 10 months rehabbing for 2014.

The four months ahead will be used to decide if Sam Bradford is the quarterback of the future in St. Louis. The Rams will have the opportunity to move on from Bradford at seasons end without destroying the Ram’s cap and target a quarterback in the upcoming draft. With a pair of first round draft picks, the Rams have the ammunition to move up and select their ideal quarterback. With Teddy Bridgewater, Tajh Boyd, Johnny Manziel and several others possibly declaring for the draft, the Rams will find it difficult to pass on such a quarterback loaded daft.

Of course there is plenty of football to play. With Kellen Clemens as the singular quarterback on the roster, the Rams will look to add depth from a long list of seasoned veterans.

This season was all about Sam Bradford and the evolution of the Ram’s offense. Unfortunately that show will be postponed or even canceled.
