When Sam Bradford announced he was foregoing the NFL draft and returning to OU...lots of people were skeptical.


Skepticism turned into criticsm and "I told you sos" after he got hurt against BYU--hed presumably left millions of dollars on the table.


In the end, he made at least $9 million dollars by staying--and thats assuming he would have been the No. 1 overall pick after his sophomore season, so it could have been much more than that.


Then theres the fifty million guaranteed. Now the skepticism is whether hes worth it.
Absolutely. If he doesnt get hurt.
