The Rams joined the growing number of teams to hold large scale player-only workouts Monday, with 30 players showing up at Lindenwood University. According to Bryan Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, it’s clear who was running the show.
“[Sam Bradford] walks around like a man in charge, running things the way a rising superstar is supposed to do,” Burwell writes. “He knows this offense already. He knows where people belong, where people should be, where the football needs to be.”
Bradford was able to get a playbook from new offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, and has studied it non-stop since. Monday was a chance to work on the playbook with rookies for the first time.
“We’ve gone over some things,” Bradford said. “I’ve tried to explain to them in as much detail as possible the formations, routes, alignments, things like that.
Bradford is housing a number of players who have nowhere else to stay in St. Louis, including second round tight end Lance Kendricks and fourth-round pick Greg Salas.
The Rams have worked together some previously in the offseason, although Bradford wouldn’t say how much. He also wouldn’t say what former players from McDaniels’ offense have helped him learn the scheme.
Yep, it sounds like he’s getting this franchise quarterback thing down.
