PLAYERS: Sam Bradford
TEAMS: St. Louis Rams
Running a spread-the-wealth offense, St. Louis Rams COO Kevin Demoff predicted “four or five” players could “catch 40-50″ balls in 2013. Surrounded by burners in St. Louis, quarterback Sam Bradford will lead the Rams’ potentially explosive attack. “The goal this year is for Sam (Bradford) to be able to throw to the ‘open’ player,” said Demoff, who is entering his fourth year with the organization. “I expect that we will get meaningful contributions from all five receivers, the two tight ends, and the running backs.

St Louis Rams: Building the Defense of the future
