Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch — who really should consider using his Twitter account more often — reports that the Rams have offered unsigned No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford a deal that exceeds $72 million over six seasons.
Bradford, of course, has yet to accept.
Last year’s No. 1 overall pick, Matthew Stafford of the Lions, received a six-year, $72 million contract with $41.75 million guaranteed. It’s unclear how much guaranteed money the Rams have offered Bradford.
Bradford will miss Friday night’s full-squad meeting at Rams camp as agent Tom Condon and the team continue to haggle. According to Thomas, the Rams are still hopeful of getting Bradford under contract by Saturday’s 3 p.m. CT practice.
