Sam Bradford ‘focused on shoulder’ not NFL destination
He’s focused on his healing shoulder not his future NFL home. And he’s “move past” being the quarterback at Oklahoma.
That’s what former OU’s Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford said during his Super Bowl interview rounds in South Florida. Bradford appeared Tuesday on the Dan Patrick Show and the Jim Rome Show. Here’s an excerpt of his conversation with Dan Patrick. You can listen to the entire interview at danpatrick.com:
Dan Patrick: How are you health wise?
Sam Bradford: Pretty good, the shoulder feels great. I throw three days a week and doctor says it looks great. I am ahead of schedule.
Patrick: Is the shoulder injury re-occurring?
Bradford: No, it should not be. They went in and reconstructed the AC joint and after the rehab is finished my shoulder should be stronger than it was before.
Patrick: If there was a national title game for Oklahoma would you have played?
Bradford: Probably not. I had surgery halfway through the season. There is no way I could have made that game.
Patrick: If you could throw it right now how far could you throw?
Bradford: I don’t know. Right now I am on a throwing program. My last throwing session was throwing 30 balls for 50 yards.
Patrick: What’s it like when you watch those mock drafts and you see your name. It doesn’t take long when it gets to your name. Are you checking out real estate is any areas?
Bradford: No, I am not checking out real estate. I try to not pay to much attention to it. I am just focused on my shoulder.
Patrick: When you go into those interviews what do you think is the first thing they are going to ask you?
Bradford: I don’t know. I got a question this morning someone told that I would probably be asked and it was if I could be a tree what kind of tree would I be.
Patrick: Are you competitive?
Bradford: Extremely. I probably could have beaten you in H-O-R-S-E. The challenge hasn’t been issued so now isn’t the time.
Patrick: You played high school basketball. Were you good?
Bradford: I did. I was pretty good.
