ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Now that the St. Louis Rams have settled on rookie Sam Bradford at quarterback, it's up to an offensive line that's been a focus of the rebuilding effort to protect the No. 1 pick.
It starts with Sunday's home opener against Arizona.
Center Jason Brown acknowledged all eyes will be on the offensive line to see how well they do the job protecting Bradford.
"There's more pressure than you will ever know," Brown said. "We take pride in it and we want to make sure he stays on his feet and make sure he has plenty of time in the pocket to make his reads downfield."
