Before some Rams freak out over Sam Bradford being on this list since one could argue the former No. 1 pick deserves to be in the category of biggest busts, keep in mind there was some potential early on with him.

Between failing to ever have a winning record, to struggling to stay healthy at times, it’s easy to see why there was so much frustration surrounding Bradford at times during the years he spent in St. Louis.

Not to mention, Bradford was fortunate enough to cash-in on that whopping six-year, $78 million rookie contract after the Rams selected him with the top overall pick in 2010. So it’s easy to see why he wasn’t always the most popular player on the team.

With that being said, Bradford does deserve some benefit of the doubt. The Rams didn’t exactly have the best offenses for him to work with under center. He was able to make an impact right away as a rookie.

During the 2010 NFL season, Bradford finished with 3,512 yards to go along with 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions, but it wasn’t until two years later where the quarterback put together his best season with the Rams.

After two years of experience, Bradford took things to a new level in 2012 by throwing for 3,702 yards to go along with 21 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.

Overall, Bradford would finish his career with the Rams by throwing for 11,065 yards with 59 yards and 38 interceptions in four seasons (the fifth year he was hurt).

This may not seem like the most impressive numbers in the world to end up with a spot on this list, but compared to other Rams quarterbacks, Bradford deserves recognition.
