Bradford on Dan Patrick Show

Rams quarterback Sam Bradford did an interview with The Dan Patrick Show earlier this week, and while it was a little bit informative, it was mostly pretty funny. Patrick was really on his game, and Bradford rolled with it perfectly. I have been critical of Sammy’s interview skills over the past few weeks, but he was actually very good and very relaxed in this interview. This is a good listen, so I suggest everyone check it out if you have a little bit of time.

A few important things that came out of this talk: Bradford said that his agent hasn’t done much talking with the team, but he still fully expects to get a deal done before camp opens. It sounds like both sides aren’t too concerned about getting this done, which I think is actually a good thing. The Rams likely know about what it will take, and it doesn’t sound like Bradford is going to haggle over a few dollars.

Also, Bradford said his shoulder is feeling “great” and that he feels almost 100 percent. He said that he wants to be the starting quarterback Week 1, but a decision hasn’t been made yet.

My favorite part of the interview was when Patrick asked Sam if he needs some cash since he hasn’t signed a deal yet. Patrick asks if he needs some “walking around money”, and Bradford says he has “about 5 or 6 dollars in his pocket” right now. Here is the link, so make some time to listen to this thing.

    I really enjoyed this interview! Thanks for the link, Justin. Go Rams…go Sammy B!

    If you think the interview was good, you should have seen what Sammy did to me for twelve dollars and a pack of Skittles while we were off the air.

    Let’s just say that a position switch to tight end is not out of the question.
