Rams Look to Restructure Sam Bradford's Contract

Former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford is set to make $12.985 million in the final year of his rookie contract, a number that is much too high for the injury-plagued quarterback.

According to the St. Louis Dispatch's Jim Thomas, the St. Louis Rams will seek to restructure the deal of the former No. 1 overall pick.

Bradford tore his ACL for the second time last year, missing all of the 2014 season. He's missed 25 of the past 32 games and 31 total over his five-year career.

How the Rams attempt to slice Bradford's contract will be interesting to follow. Thomas suggests the possibility of lopping off a portion and converting it into a series of incentives to allow the quarterback a chance to recoup some of the money. (NFL.com)
