|With Josh McDaniels at the controls and Sam Bradford coming off an impressive rookie season, there were high hopes for the Rams offense entering 2011. Unfortunately, the offense fell flat as Bradford struggled through an injury marred campaign and McDaniels stubbornly refused to alter his offensive approach despite having an array of offensive players ill-suited to carry out his marching orders. Bradford missed six games with a high ankle sprain but struggled mightily in his ten starts, throwing for just 2,164 yards and six touchdowns. McDaniels was fired after the season and replaced by former Jets offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer. Scottenheimer will employ a version of the west coast offense and that bodes well for Bradford, who excelled as a rookie in Pat Shurmurís WCO. While Bradford is expected to take a leap forward in 2012, it is doubtful he will be a useful fantasy option. The Rams scored 16 touchdowns last season and lost their top wide receiver (Brandon Lloyd) and the offensive line has significant issues once again. How many touchdowns are in order for the Rams in 2012? Canít be too many more than 16. That makes it pretty hard to predict a breakout season for Bradford in 2012. He remains a solid option in dynasty formats but he is a low end QB2 in redraft formats.

Pederson: "I think he's done an outstanding job"
|Doug Pederson said the Eagles' quarterback depth chart remains unchanged. Sam Bradford is the No. 1 quarterback and will be the starter when the season begins. Chase Daniel is No. 2, and rookie Carson Wentz is the No. 3 quarterback.
"I've said that from day one," Pederson said.
FF Today's Take: Despite recent discussion of "open competition" the job is Bradford's to lose and unless he shows terribly during the pre-season he will be the starter Week 1. Given the new system and Bradford's limited ability, he's nothing more than a QB2 in redraft leagues.
|Sam Bradford expected to report today -- Mon May 9 8:00 am --|
OTAs begin next week
|Connor Barwin told 94.1 WIP in Philly he received a text from Bradford saying the quarterback will report for Eagles voluntary workouts today, per Howard Eskin.
"He'll be here today. I talked to him. He'll be here this week -- he'll be here today," Barwin said. "I feel like I'm the Sam Bradford like news -- reporting for Sam. But yeah, he'll be here today."
FF Today's Take: Bradford's "holdout" will end prior to the Eagles OTAs which begin next week. He reportedly demanded a trade when the team traded in up in the draft to select QB Carson Wentz. Perhaps Bradford has come to his senses and realizes that doing the best he can for the Eagles in 2016 is the correct path.

Broncos mulling other options at QB

FF Today's Take: Bradford's request for a trade from the Eagles seems to be falling on deaf ears... as it should. It appears Bradford will be a bridge to rookie Carson Wentz, assuming Wentz is taken by the Eagles at No.2 in tonight's draft.

Won't show up for off-season program
|Eagles have been informed Sam Bradford wants to be traded and he will not be showing up for their off-season program any longer, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Bradford just received a two-year deal for $24 million guaranteed ($36 potential) but now feels threatened by a rookie quarterback and wants to be traded. Geez. The Eagles have stated publically that Bradford will remain the starter in 2016 as they give Wentz a year to acclimate himself to the league.

Will quarterbacks go 1-2 in this year's draft?
|Eagles have agreed to a trade with the Cleveland Browns to acquire the second-overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Eagles get: 2016 1st RD (#2), 2017 4th RD.
Browns get: 2016 1st RD (#8), 2016 3rd RD (#77), 2016 4th RD (#100), 2017 1st RD, 2018 2nd RD. (Eagles on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: It's a big haul for the Browns and a steep price to pay for the Eagles who presumably will take QB Carson Wentz, assuming the Rams take Jared Goff at No.1. The Eagles signed Chase Daniel this off-season and re-signed Sam Bradford giving him $26 million guaranteed over two years.
