Sam Bradford Named AP Offensive ROY

Sam Bradford won the Associated Press 2010 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

This season Sam Bradford set NFL rookie records for completions (354) and attempts (590), and his 3,512 passing yards are second most ever by an NFL rookie, only behind Peyton Manning's 3,739 yards in 1998. Bradford threw 18 touchdown passes, tied for fifth most by a rookie in NFL history. Bradford finished 25th in the NFL in quarterback rating 76.5, and 30th in yards per attempt at 6.0. The St. Louis Rams need to provide Sam Bradford with a much better receiving core and better game plans.

Bradford was one of only three quarterbacks in the NFL to take every offensive snap for his team this season. Bradford was also just the fourth rookie to take every snap for his team in a 16 game season.

Sam Bradford received 44 votes from a panel of 50 media members. Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Williams earned four votes, and Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey received the other two.
