Bradford will get a third season in coordinator Brian Schottenheimer's offense, but it's safe to assume the Rams won't ask Bradford to carry the load for what will likely be a run-heavy offense.
The Rams have clearly abandoned the spread approach they were installing this time last year, but they will almost certainly be more balanced than they were after Bradford's injury in 2013.
"I think part of it is building up the endurance in my legs," Bradford said. "I can kind of feel a little bit of fatigue today, but I think that's normal just not having been out here practicing like that. That's really what I'm going to work on during this five-week break."
Coach Jeff Fisher was glad to see Bradford able to participate in OTAs.
"We had a plan throughout," Fisher said. "We allowed him to do some things in the skill development, and he did. We got him on the field in the first couple OTAs. Just in the passing fashion he was good. Then today and obviously on Tuesday, he participated in team periods - that was encouraging. He's got a plan for the summer. He's going to get away for a little bit. He needs to get away. He's been here every day, and he'll come back ready to go."
Fisher still believes in Bradford as a franchise quarterback.
"Yeah, there’s no doubt," Fisher said. "He's got the vision, the decision making ability, the arm strength and mobility to put up great numbers."
"[Y]ou'll be able to see him (Friday)," Fisher said. "We're going to have him participate in about half of the OTAs. He'll probably get five of them in. (Friday) he's going to throw two 7-on-7 periods. He threw a 7-on-7 period with the 1s on Tuesday."
Bradford is coming off last year's torn ACL in his left knee.
