St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford was named the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year on Friday, according to a tweet from the team's official Twitter account. Bradford put together an outstanding rookie campaign, taking the reigns for the Rams and throwing for 3,512 yards, 18 touchdowns and 15 interceptions as St. Louis took a leap forward in 2010. The Rams nearly captured the NFC West title, but fell to the Seattle Seahawks with a playoff berth on the line in week 17.
In the interest of being thorough, here's the Rams' announcement, brought to you by the power of social media.
Rams QB Sam Bradford has been named Offensive Rookie of the Year by the Associated Press. Congrats to No. 8.
If the award is any indication, the Rams are on the way up with Bradford at the helm as they work to build a young nucleus to compete for a title in what's been the weakest division in football. Though Bradford still needs help at the receiver position, his accelerated development while learning on the job has been remarkable, and bodes well for the future.
Ndamukong Suh joined Bradford as a rookie of the year on Friday, as well, winning the defensive award.
