Status: Alternate Injury Replacement
After an impressive rookie year for Sam Bradford that brought him 3,512 passing yards and 18 touchdowns, as well as Rookie of the Year honors, he will look to continue his success in 2011.
Some players who excel as rookies go through a "sophomore slump," but Bradford works too hard and is too talented to experience anything like that.
Besides, the Rams just bought him a boatload of new weapons to utilize, such as Mike Sims-Walker, Austin Pettis, Lance Kendricks, Greg Salas, Cadillac Williams and Jerious Norwood.
He will also have some key weapons returning from last year, such as Danny Amendola, Danario Alexander and Brandon Gibson (who is having by far the best training camp among receivers).
Bradford might not be ready to post elite quarterback numbers, but there's always a good possibility that an original candidate will avoid the game due to an injury.
Also, since the Pro Bowl game is now played before the Super Bowl, any Pro Bowl quarterback who is Super Bowl-bound will opt out of the game, which would give Bradford another chance at making the roster.
