Rams Optimistic Bradford Will Sign
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams are optimistic they'll sign No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford soon, perhaps by Thursday when quarterbacks and rookies are due for their first training camp workout.

Whenever Bradford arrives, he won't be throwing to Terrell Owens. The Rams are thin at wide receiver, but coach Steve Spagnuolo said the team has decided against signing Owens.

Spagnuolo said on Tuesday that the Rams remain interested in running back Brian Westbrook, though.

Regarding Bradford, Spagnuolo said talks are proceeding and he was hopeful a deal would be reached soon. The coach added that Bradford, the former Oklahoma quarterback, has said in the past that he wanted to be in camp on time.

Spagnuolo was more confident second-round pick Rodger Saffold, the other unsigned draft pick, will agree to terms ahead of the rookie drills.
