2012 NFL Draft: Does Sam Bradford's Contract Make Him Impossible To Trade?

Come draft time, the St. Louis Rams will have a decision to make. With a guaranteed top two pick, the Rams figure to have the opportunity to at least draft Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III of the Baylor Bears, if not Stanford Cardinal QB Andrew Luck. The Rams currently start ex-number one overall pick Sam Bradford, but after a lackluster sophomore season, it's not out of the question that the Rams may explore the trade market for the reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year.

But as pointed out by Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio, the Rams may find it very difficult to move Bradford, thanks to his massive contract. Bradford came into the NFL in the final year before the league restructured the rookie wage scale, and he's still owed $21 million over the next two seasons.
