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.
