LINK>>>Sources: St. Louis Rams, Sam Bradford agree to six-year, $78 million deal - ESPN
he St. Louis Rams reached an agreement with No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford on a six-year, $78 million deal, sources told ESPN on Friday night.
According to the sources, Bradford's deal contains $50 million of guarantees and has a max value of $86 million.
Last year, the Detroit Lions gave No. 1 overall pick Matthew Stafford a six-year deal that included $41.7 million in guaranteed money.
Veteran A.J. Feeley opened Rams camp as the starting quarterback while Bradford's agents and the Rams' front office worked out a deal.
Bradford won the Heisman Trophy as a redshirt sophomore at the University of Oklahoma. However, he appeared in just three games in 2009, his junior year, before undergoing right shoulder surgery.
50 mil guaranteed for a kid that hasn't played a single game...this is getting to be a joke...NFL really needs a rookie scale contract...
where do they stop? next years first over all pick is gonna get even more money...
