With his short- and long-term future with the St. Louis Rams in question, QB Sam Bradford has a tough road after tearing his ACL in 2015.
St. Louis Rams GM Les Snead would not commit to naming Sam Bradford the starting QB of the Rams after the former No. 1 overall pick missed the entire 2014 season.
At the NFL Scouting Combine media sessions on Wednesday, Snead said that Bradford’ injuries which have caused him to miss 25 of the last 32 games have prevented the team from naming him the starting QB outright,
CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora reported that the Rams have given Bradford permission pursue a trade.
Sam Bradford has permission to seek a trade. Finding compensation to Rams’ liking will be difficult. But his agent can speak to other teams

The No. 1 overall pick by the Rams in the 2010 NFL draft, Bradford was the 2010 Offensive Rookie of the Year and led the Rams to a 7-9 record, but over the next four seasons Bradford would play in a grand total of 33 games, going 11-21-1 in that span as the Rams finished last in the NFC West multiple times.
Bradford tore his ACL before the start of the 2014 season and missed the entire year. The team would go on to finish 6-10 – in last place in the division for the second year in a row.
