Report: Sam Bradford ‘absolutely’ wants to play in 2018

Sam Bradford has made enough money to not have to work ever again, but when you’re in the NFL, sometimes it’s just a matter of pride.

According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, he’s planning on playing in the 2018 season.

The former Heisman Trophy-winning Oklahoma quarterback has dealt with a bevy of injuries during his career, and most recently had a scope done on his left knee.

Bradford was the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, and won the Heisman Trophy in 2008. He threw for 8,403 yards and 88 touchdowns at Oklahoma, 50 of those touchdowns coming during his Heisman Trophy winning season.

Bradford suffered a third-degree AC joint sprain during the Sooners’ first 2009 game against BYU. He returned to the field, but reinjured the shoulder in the Red River Rivalry against Texas, and did not return for the rest of the season. He still left Oklahoma as the Sooners’ all-time passing leader, a mark that would be passed by Landry Jones and Baker Mayfield in recent years.
