Rams sprinkle in Sam Bradford with first team

At Rams OTAs earlier this month, No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford seemed to be struggling.  Head coach Steve Spagnuolo admitted that some of Bradford’s practice passes had sailed, and hinted he was slow to pick up the pace of the NFL game.

Career journeyman A.J. Feeley, who hasn’t tried a pass attempt since 2007, was getting all the first-team reps.  Bradford saw action only with the second and third units, sharing time with Keith Null.
On Tuesday, however, Spagnuolo revealed that Bradford is indeed being sprinkled in with the starters.
“All those … him [Bradford], Keith, and now Thad [Lewis], all three of them are mixed in,” said Spags.  “We’re trying to get them equal number of reps, so sometimes it works out and some guy will be with the ones.”
While Spagnuolo hardly named Bradford the Week One starter, the head coach confirmed that Bradford is at least throwing some passes to Laurent Robinson and Donnie Avery.  Presumably, Bradford will have a better chance to succeed if he’s formed a rapport with St. Louis’ first-team wide receivers before the season starts.  Spagnuolo’s comments also indicate that Feeley is far from entrenched atop the quarterback depth chart.
Which is good news for what’s left of the St. Louis Rams’ fan base considering, you know, all of this.

    Just hope he is in week 2, so the Raiders can break his shoulder again.

    Tebow will be a better NFL QB.

    Poor Bradford, he finally gets a post up and out of five comments one wishs him an injury and another says Tebow is the better QB. I tell ya’, he don’t get no respect.
