Bradford Doing More Than Expected in OTA’s Pro Football Talk

So many NFL players recovering from injuries in recent years have boasted that they’re "ahead of schedule" that it sometimes seems like it’s time to change the schedule. But Rams quarterback Sam Bradford does appear to be ahead of schedule in his recovery from a torn ACL.


Observations from Rams’ Third OTA:  ESPN

After a heated practice Thursday, things normalized a bit Friday but there were still some worthwhile notes to come from the practice.


It's the offseason, so the St. Louis Rams will probably get 10 wins and Sam Bradford will finally come into his own. Also, the NFC West is super good.

The 2011 first round was really strong, with 12 players voted into the Pro Bowl. It will be awfully hard to duplicate that feat. With that said, here are some rookies who should make an immediate impact.

It is pretty much a known fact in Rams Nation that the St. Louis Rams haven’t had a 1,000 yard receiver since Torry Holt back in 2007 and really haven’t had anything close since the end of the Greatest Show on Turf days.

Believe it or not the Rams used to be like today’s Broncos, Saints, and Packers in which multiple receivers would have 1,000 receiving yards. Unfortunately, those days are long gone.


Jake Long, who suffered a torn ACL in the next-to-last game of the 2013 season, is doing individual drills but otherwise isn't participating in OTAs. Have a look at what a few other Rams are doing during organized team activities.
