St. Louis quarterback Sam Bradford isn’t used to all the speed that is on display for the Rams’ offense in 2013. Bradford knows being in the NFC West will be brutal, having to go head to head with the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks twice each, but he knows they can compete with them. The Rams drafted eighth overall after climbing up the board to snatch the versatile receiver Tavon Austin who gives the unit big play potential. Another of Bradford's new targets includes tight end Jared Cook, who signed through free agency. They both add big play potential and speed to burn. "We've had talented teams in the past and tried to maximize it," Bradford said, via Nate Davis of USA TODAY Sports. "But with the speed we've brought in, it really allows us to open things up and put other teams in a bind. That's good for this football team. "I've been waiting for this, just wanting to see this offense succeed and maybe do some things we haven't been able to in the past." "There's just a sense of speed now, where in the past we might have had speed at one position but no true burners." "Defenses are going to have to choose who they pay attention to," said Bradford. "We know what we're capable of and what we did in our division last year," he said. "If we play at our true potential, we're not worried about those other teams getting the attention now."
