Sam Bradford - Signs his contract

ST. LOUIS (AP)—No. 1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford(notes) agreed to a six-year, $78 million contract with the St. Louis Rams on Friday night, with $50 million in guaranteed money.

The Rams and the former Oklahoma quarterback concluded negotiations in time for the first full-squad workout set for Saturday. The guaranteed money is the highest ever in the NFL.

Bradford Signs for $78 Million

Seriously???? What kind of pure lunacy is this???

 

The guy had his arm half tore up last year in college....and you give the guy $50 million guaranteed? He's never played a down of real football and your throwing more money at this kid then proven QB's in the NFL are making?? You're telling me that this guy deserves to make more than Matt Schaub?? Drew Brees???

This is absolutely why the owners are right in demanding a rookie pay scale. Teams are being forced to pay up to keep players that could help their teams but at bankrupting the team if they fail. It's ridiculous....

Think about it.... Peyton Manning in 2004 signed the largest contract in the history of the NFL for a QB....this kid will make only 21 million less.....and the guy hasn't even taken a single NFL snap.... Manning was already a league MVP and had a few Pro Bowls...
