    National Football Post: Bradford's Knee An Issue

    I'm speaking from fourteen hours ahead here, and I can confirm that, at least in the Southern Hemisphere, the sky does not appear to be falling.

    The St. Louis Rams remain open to trading out of the top overall pick and have been fielding exploratory calls from NFL teams to gauge the cost of moving up to draft University of Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

    Although the Rams are definitely willing to listen, a trade is regarded as unlikely to happen.

    The Rams remain sold on Bradford from a medical, ability and character standpoint and are prepared to pick him.

    We're told that some NFL teams have reservations about Bradford medically, but it's not about his surgically repaired shoulder.

    Instead, they have some concerns about his knee.

    It's not expected to affect his draft stock dramatically, but it is an issue that has been raised by NFL team doctors.

    Re: National Football Post: Bradford's Knee An Issue

    Not sure what to make of this. The only knee issue I've read about Bradford is that he sustained a minor injury to it against Baylor, but didn't leave the field. It sounded very minor, like the kind of bump or bruise you'd expect to get playing football, which is why I haven't included it with other injuries when talking about Bradford's injury history or durability.

    It's entirely possible if not probable that this is a last ditch effort by some teams to try and throw some mud against the wall, hoping that improves the Rams' chances of passing on Bradford or trading out of that spot. But if the information is accurate and there is something more concerning about his knee, then it would be just another bullet point on the list of injuries that make him a durability concern at the next level.

    I'm worried about Bradford's back. After he puts all that signing bonus money in his wallet, his back is going to be straining under all the weight.

    BINGO!!!

    I mean... really. The media has been focused on Bradford for months now, and you're telling me that the first we are hearing of a knee issue is a report (with no source) from a glorified football blog?

    I think the next story will be about concerns over Bradford's mental stability and sexual preferances...

    Excellent observation, RY. Being a Chiropractor, I, too, am quite concerned about the load capacity of Mr. Bradford's lumbar spine to function under such an enormous burden.

    Hence it is my recommendation that in order to alleviate some of the pressure on Mr. Bradford's lumbar discs and joints that he be instructed to, in a manner, 'share the load'.

    I hereby volunteer to take a proportionate share of the weight of his wallet for the time being until further notice.

    I feel its the least I can do to help the new QB of the Rams going forward.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Being an attorney, I must advise Bradford that a wallet that size is a hazard and violation of the "safe sidewalks" law . Oh **** it, just give me the money already, greedy *******.

    Re: National Football Post: Bradford's Knee An Issue

    Actually, I think it went like this.

    "Say... did you hear that Bradford is part Native American?"

    "Really, that's interesting. Let me Google that..."

    "So, what did you find?"

    "Let's see... Native Americans... First Thanksgiving.... General Custer... Battle of Wounded Knee."

    "So Bradford has a wounded knee?"

    "No, that's not what I said, I was just..."

    "That's fine. I have a story idea!"

    Nah, Jimmy Clausen already has the market on concerns regarding mental stability. He may have the market on the other one as well, based on certain online photos...

    As long as there is no allegation that he has graduated frrom the Big Ben School of Judgment, i think we are in pretty good shape as far as known injury concerns and both mental stability and bedroom behavior.

    The idea that any team would be influenced by any medical opinion other than that of the doctors that examine the guy on behalf of the team is a joke.

    A friend of mine's brother's uncle's dad's sister's boyfriend's brother said that he thought that Sean Weatherspoon has gout...ya that's it...he has gout. I'm sure of it!

    "Gout is a medical condition that usually presents with recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis (red, tender, hot, swollen joints)."

    Oh, that silly little thing?

    Gee, I seem to have forgotten.

    Guess it wasn't really that important.
