Bradford helped sell Fisher on Rams

Some of the credit for the Rams landing coach Jeff Fisher might go to QB Sam Bradford.

It turns out that Bradford spent some substantial getting-to-know-you time with his future coach during the courtship. Considering that having a quarterback in place was one of Fisher’s two must-haves for his new team, well, that Bradford time likely helped seal the deal.

“Well, everybody that has crossed paths with Sam knows what a great young man he is and how competitive and how talented he is,” Fisher told “NFL Total Access” on Tuesday about meeting Bradford. “That was not a concern of mine. I knew we’d get along great. But it was some of the other things — trying to get a pulse for the team and what he thought it needed — and as a leader of this team, you want to talk to him. It was a very valuable conversation.”

Bradford claims he didn’t do a sales job on Fisher.

“I really just tried to be myself,” Bradford told the team’s official website. “I wasn’t going to be anything but who I am. It was just a time for us to meet and get to know each other. If that helped along the process and helped get him here, then I am very happy about it.”

Whatever Bradford did or didn’t do — intentionally or not — it was enough to help sell his new coach.
