Sam Bradford Might Have Problems Playing for the Redskins...Being a Native American

via www.cbc.ca

Sam Bradford did a radio interview with Kevin Sheehan's Sports Fix on ESPN 980 radio today.

On the shoulder:

Sam Bradford: Shoulder feels great. I throw several days a week. Dr. Andrews said I'm ahead of schedule. He said no doubt I'll be 100% by my pro-day."

OK great...now for the juicy stuff:

Kevin Sheehan: You are of Native American descent, correct?

Sam Bradford: Correct.

Kevin Sheehan: So, out of curiosity, do you have any sort of feelings about the Redskins name?

Sam Bradford: "You know,obviously in Oklahoma there's a large Native American population. There are a lot of opinions on that name....but...I really don't feel like, you know, I need to be, you know, voicing my opinion. You know. If it's something I have to do down the line, you know, then I will, but I just don't feel like I need to address that issue right now."    

Uh oh. That doesn't sound good. Obviously the kid is being careful not to say the wrong thing for any question, but I can't help but think he'd say "Nah...it doesn't other me" if it actually didn't. 

Update: A great comment below from juperee: "My guess is that Sam is hedging his bets here because he doesn’t feel offended himself, but he doesn’t want to offend people who think he should be offended."
