The quivering hand pressed against Jason Brown's backside belonged to the first player chosen in the 2010 NFL draft.Read the whole thing for yourself here. But be warned -- the Bradford-Brown exchange isn't the only talk of the Rams getting their asses handed to them -- ESPN ranks the team dead last in their preseason power rankings poll.
Alas, the week before St. Louis Rams training camp was tough on quarterback Sam Bradford's nerves.
The No. 1 overall draft choice could not be sure when his agent and the team would reach a contract agreement, and by the time Bradford finally arrived, the other quarterbacks had a couple days' head start on him. All eyes were on the franchise savior from Oklahoma when Bradford lowered himself under center for the first time during camp.
Bradford might have appeared cool and in command from afar, but one veteran teammate had a better, uh, feel for the situation.
"You couldn't see it on his face, but I knew he was nervous because when he got under center and put his hand underneath my rear end, his hand was shaking -- it was quivering," Brown said. "And of course, I didn't say anything, but it's a very awkward feeling for me as well when someone has their hand shaking underneath your rear end."
