The Rams have named No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford as their starting quarterback for the regular season.
The move comes as no surprise. Bradford was impressive in the third preseason game after A.J. Feeley, who had taken most of the first-team reps in training camp, went down with an injury.
Head coach Steve Spagnuolo said: "We're confident, the staff's confident, the team's confident. It's well-deserved. He deserves this opportunity."
Feeley will be the backup and Thaddeus Lewis will be the third-string quarterback. Keith Null, who started the final four games for the Rams last season, has been cut.
In other news, the Rams placed S Kevin Payne and OL Eric Young on injured reserve.
