Bradford, Rams agree to record deal
Quarterback Sam Bradford agreed to a record-setting contract with the St. Louis Rams, an NFL source said Friday night.
Bradford, the top overall selection in the NFL draft in April out of Oklahoma, agreed to a six-year deal with the Rams that includes approximately $50 million in guaranteed money, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the contract had not been signed.
Bradford's deal includes more than $8 million more in guaranteed money than the $41.7 million in the contract that last year's top overall draft pick, quarterback Matthew Stafford, signed with the Detroit Lions.
That was the previous record for an NFL rookie.
According to a source, Bradford's contract has an overall value of $78 million. The deal can be worth as much as $86 million, the source said, if Bradford reaches all of his incentives.
The Rams' first full-squad practice of training camp is scheduled for Saturday.
