|Bradford No-Show for First Rookie Workout
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The most prominent St. Louis Rams newcomer missed the first day of rookie workouts. Teammates expected to see quarterback Sam Bradford soon enough.
Offensive tackle Jason Smith was the second overall pick last year and he and Bradford have the same agents, Tom Condon and Ben Dogra of St. Louis. Smith signed a five-year contract in time for the first full-squad workout.
This year, the first workout is Saturday.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo said Thursday there was nothing new in negotiations but he remained optimistic. Veteran A.J. Feeley, who'll be the starter until Bradford's ready, said missing one practice is no big deal.
The Rams held two workouts Thursday, with several veterans coming off injuries included in the mix.
