Former St. Louis Rams quarterback Kurt Warner wants to see Sam Bradford be successful, and he has some idea for things he wants to see out of the former OU great.


Warner went on 101 ESPN in St. Louis on Monday and said he'd like to see "him (Bradford) develop the confidence where he's willing to take some chances with the football."


"That he's willing to say, 'Guys, follow me.' I'm going to carry us a little bit. I'm going to take that shot down the field because I see it and I believe I can make it as opposed to second-guessing himself and throwing the checkdown."

 

 

Warner, who was the quarterback of the Rams' Super Bowl championship team in the 1999 season, acknowledged the need for improvement from the supporting cast around Bradford, but also said Bradford has expectations on his shoulders as the quarterback.


Bradford was having his best season as a pro in 2013, throwing 14 touchdowns and four interceptions before going down with a torn ACL in week 7.


"They haven’t always had the pieces around him to allow him to make plays but being where he’s at, now they’ve got some young talent here, it becomes that next step for him to take that next leadership role and to take more upon himself," Warner said.
