Sam Bradford Is The Smartest Man Alive!

Look at yourselves. You all screamed and hissed when young Samuel Jacob Bradford made the decision to return to the University of Oklahoma for his junior year in college.

“He’s flushing money down the toilet,” you said.
“He just cost himself millions,” you said.

Now look at you. There are three reasons staying in school turned out to be the best thing that could ever have happened to Sam Bradford.

First there’s the money.

In addition to the fact that rookie number one picks have made more money each successive season, the NFL is going into an uncapped year this season. This means that teams can sign as many free agents as they want and pay whatever they like without worrying about going over the cap. This also means teams can offer stupefying amounts of money as signing bonuses and front load, instead of back load, contracts. Sam Bradford’s agent knows this.

Sam Bradford’s agent – Tom Condon, in case you were wondering – also knows that the St. Louis Rams have already released their one-time franchise quarterback Marc Bulger. My guess, is that the Rams already had a deal in place with Bradford, but have yet to lay down the ink.

Second, let’s look at the situation he now finds himself in. Let’s not even talk about the debacle that is the Detroit Lions organization. Yes, they’ve fired Matt Millen, but given the front office’s pedigree for finding, hiring and then sticking with morons, there’s a good chance they hired another idiot who will do his damndest to continue running the franchise into the ground. There’s also the debacle that is the city of Detroit right now. The city has the highest unemployment rate in the country and in December it reached a surreal 50 percent. They also can’t seem to find a mayor who isn’t taken out of office and directly to jail.

At least the Jacksonville Jaguars can dream about moving to LA in two or three years. I can’t imagine a worse job than franchise quarterback for the Detroit Lions. In three years when Matt Stafford is still stinking up the joint and Detroit is picking in the top five for the fifth consecutive season, he’ll ponder this every night before he goes to bed. “Garbage man,” “angel of death,” “rock counter,” “repo man”…

The icing on the cake for Bradford is that he got to spend another year in Norman. There is nothing on earth like being the starting, Heisman-winning, soon-to-be-number-one-draft-pick quarterback of the Oklahoma Sooners. Sure, he had to wait a year for his millions. But when do you think the last time Sam Bradford paid for anything was? Do you think there’s a single girl in the state who will tell him no? He’s already got everything a man could ask for. And he didn’t even have to play football last season.

Let this be a lesson to the all kids out there: Stay in school.
