Sam Bradford’s professional practice at rookie minicamp was flooded with 40 assorted reporters, TV cameramen – ESPN and local TV station and photographers. However, the next day was comparatively close to normalcy. Friday's overflow media crowd had dwindled to a decidedly more intimate gathering of eight reporters preventing it from turning into an out-of-control circus.
Bradford's future is tied in directly to the future of this organization and is being studiously orchestrated from the very start by coach Steve Spagnuolo , who , definitely has a plan for Bradford's development, that will ultimately help Bradford take over as the starting QB .
"When Sam got in here on Thursday, I sat him down and told him there are three structures in this league when it comes to developing a quarterback, and I've studied them all and they all work," Spagnuolo said . "I told Sam he won't hear quarterback stuff from me. It will be the little things that I talk to you about. I will tell him things like how to get the team in and out of the huddle with the sound of your voice," Spagnuolo said
A year ago, James Laurinaitis was in the role of rookie (defensive) quarterback and there was a careful plan that helped prepare him to move into the starter's role and now Laurinaitis becomes the template for Bradford.
"Now I have no idea when that moment will be for Sam," Spagnuolo said. "I don't know if we'll feel that way during the fourth OTA or if it will be the fourth quarter of the 12th game of the regular season."
