ST. LOUIS (AP) - No. 1 overall draft pick Sam Bradford has agreed to a 6-year, $78 million contract with the St. Louis Rams, with $50 million in guaranteed money.
The Rams and the former Oklahoma quarterback concluded negotiations Friday night, just in time for the first full-squad workout set for Saturday. The guaranteed money is the highest ever in the NFL.
Bradford is the centerpiece of a rebuilding effort for the Rams, who were 1-15 last year in the first season under coach Steve Spagnuolo and are 6-42 the last three seasons.
