Sam Bradford insists he’s not going to pull a John Elway.
Asked on NFL Network about growing speculation that he won’t sign a pre-draft contract, Bradford said, “I’ve never said that. I’ve never been asked that. I’m not really sure where that’s coming from. I’m a player. I’m going to play for whoever drafts me.”
Bradford is also not going to pull an Eli Manning.
“If St. Louis takes me, it’s going to be a great opportunity. It’s something that I’ve dreamed about for a long time,” Bradford said. “Regardless of who takes me, I’m going to more than happy to get to that city and get to work.”
That approach is laudable and can only help Bradford. But it doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to land in St. Louis.
We still don’t really know if the Rams want Bradford. We don’t know how his contract desires or his trade value could change things.
We do know that Ndamukung Suh was too dominant in college to simply forget about.
