    Rams should cut him.

    He could play back up to rg iii when they trade Kirk cousins.

    Certainly there is more to it than just luck, but you can't help but feel like Bradford (and the Rams) have fallen victim to a ton of crappy luck.

    I'll admit I could be wrong, but I feel like most of his injuries have been wrong place, wrong time situations more than situations where he took a dumb risk or left himself open for injury. It's really just been guys rolling up under him or things like landing on the point of his shoulder after getting sacked. Not a ton he could have done.

    There was already a vocal group here in STL that was ready to move on from Bradford before this season (and he even had his fair share of detractors before last season), but now it's basically unanimous that it's time to move on from him. He's just too expensive to keep around and at this point, it's clear that his ceiling as a quarterback isn't high enough to continue to bank on him as a starter.

    I don't think he's ever going to be the superstar that they drafted him to be, but I wouldn't be shocked to see him move somewhere else and have a productive career. He's got tools, but the combination of injuries and a crappy supporting cast for his entire career has conspired to keep him from being successful.
