Rams want to restructure QB Bradford contract

There are some that speculate the St. Louis Rams may release QB Sam Bradford in light of a $13M cap hit from the last year of his deal coming up in 2015. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch however, is hearing differently.

According to veteran Post-Dispatch reporter Jim Thomas, the Rams are interested in restructuring the final year of Bradford’s contract. Though they’re not looking to extend the contract they do want to make a significant portion of Bradford’s salary incentive-based. Here’s Thomas’ report in a nutshell.

The Rams want to restructure the final year of the injury-plagued Bradford’s contract. They could do so by lopping off some of the $12.985 million base salary he is due in 2015, the last year of his contract, while potentially putting in incentives that could allow Bradford to recoup much of that money. An outright release would save the team that $12.985 million out of an overall cap count of $16.58 million.

Bradford, despite his history of injuries, is a player that is seen in league circles as one who would draw attention from teams in need of veteran QB help.
