St. Louis Rams are trying to negotiate a contract with the No.1 pick Sam Bradford. The Rams hope to finalize a deal by Friday in time for training camp. The former Heisman Trophy winner is expected to land the richest contract in NFL history.
Bradford’s reps are trying to get guaranteed money in the area of $45-50 million… this coming from a guy who ended his college season early with shoulder surgery.
Last year the Detroit Lions gave No.1 overall pick Matt Stafford a six-year deal for $41.7 m in guaranteed money. Bradford’s contract is expected to exceed Stafford’s contract by at least $5 million… not bad for a kid who didn’t even throw at the NFL Combine.
