Lance Kendricks, Sam Bradford Continue To Dominate St. Louis Rams Offense

The St. Louis Rams' rookie tight end Lance Kendricks has become Sam Bradford's favorite target.

Lance Kendricks continued to serve as Sam Bradford's favorite target in the St. Louis Rams' new offense Thursday, catching three balls for 73 yards and his third touchdown of the preseason to consolidate his position as the Rams' top receiving option. The Rams rookie, who was seen by some as an overdraft when he went in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft, has looked like a perfect fit for Josh McDaniels's offense so far. He's got 11 receptions for 155 yards and three touchdowns in four games; only Brandon Gibson, whose 83-yard touchdown reception sort of skews things, and Donnie Avery have accrued 100 receiving yards. 

Kendricks's performance comes as McDaniels seems ready to emphasize the role of the tight end in the Rams' offense, and with Michael Hoomanawanui fragile at best and Fendi Onobun not ready to start by any stretch of the imagination a strong start will be crucial for McDaniels's plan to work.
