Les Snead, Jeff Fisher reiterate that Sam Bradford is Rams franchise QB

INDIANAPOLIS -- Even though the Rams could release quarterback Sam Bradford without owing him any more guaranteed money, Rams general manager Les Snead and coach Jeff Fisher say they're all-in on the 2010 No. 1 overall pick.

Perhaps Bradford hasn't played up to expectations and yes, he's dealt with injuries for most of his career. But the St. Louis party line with regards to its franchise quarterback hasn't changed since people first started asking about his future.

Which is why Fisher doesn't understand why he's still getting questions about the team's long-term plans for Bradford, who's coming off a torn ACL suffered in Week 7.

"As I mentioned a couple years ago, one of the two reasons I took this job was because of Sam," Fisher said Friday. "We as an organization, everybody has a great deal of respect for him and trust in him. He's our guy. this year, before got hurt, he was playing pretty good football. Had he stayed healthy, you would have had a different player. We have zero concern about whether he's coming back."

Plus, as CBSSports.com's John Breech wrote in his Rams offseason preview, Bradford was one of the team positives of 2013. Wrote Breech: "Bradford didn't last the entire season -- or even half the season -- but in the seven games he did play, he actually looked good. Bradford has six three-touchdown passing games in his four-year career and three of those came in 2013."

But what about a long-term extension for Bradford? As Snead said, those talks are "active and ongoing."

So, despite the fact that Bradford's current contract runs for two more years and that he'll cost $17.6 million against the salary cap next season -- not to mention that the Rams own the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft and would land themselves a highly-rated quarterback if they so choose -- St. Louis seems fully behind Bradford. For now, anyway.
