"You're not gonna hear a head coach say he has a player on his team that's not ahead of schedule coming off an ACL. Everybody says they're all ahead of schedule. But he is realistically way ahead of schedule. He's working hard," Fisher said.
Fisher predicts Bradford will be ready to go for the start of the season and even progress to the next step of his career, but the Rams are still sniffing around quarterbacks. The Post-Dispatch says "signs point" to the team drafting a quarterback in May, if only for precautionary reasons since Bradford has two years left on his current deal.
CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora floated the idea of the
La Canfora made it clear he's not reporting the Rams are trying to get something for Bradford, but that he's speculating that they could. The Rams have previously said they're committing to Bradford for this season. Bradford is coming off of a torn ACL.
"This will be Bradford's 3rd season with [Brian] Schottenheimer as the OC. If things aren't clicking in Year III ... then when?" the paper said.
Bradford is signed through 2015. He's owed $17.6 million this year and $16.5 million next year.
Fisher said Bradford, who suffered a torn ACL last season, is scheduled to start throwing in late May and early June during OTA workouts, reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
And Snead said Bradford remains the Rams quarterback moving forward and that contract extension talks are "ongoing and active," reports ESPN. Bradford is under contract for the next two seasons.
"Sam's doing great with the rehab," Fisher said. "He's really excited. He took on a leadership role last year and he's maintained that and he's our quarterback, and we've said that."
Fisher would not commit, however, to a new contract for Bradford, but he didn't rule it out. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora reported that Bradford is unlikely to get a long-term deal, and he's due $27 million over the next two years.
"We talk about extensions with all our players under contract," Fisher said. "Whether or not we do so with him, I don't know where all this came from, but Sam's our quarterback. He's going to be under center."
