"The one thing that I will not do, and I promise you this, is put our organization in a situation where it's going to inhibit us or hurt us going into the future," Spielman told reporters Thursday. "By that, I mean people are asking for some crazy things. People think that you are desperate, and we are not going to do something that in my estimation, and talking with Coach Zim (Mike Zimmer) and our ownership, that puts us in a situation where we jeopardize the future of this franchise."Bradford always speaks highly of Shurmur. Even when he was traded to the Vikings, he spoke glowingly of him.
A prime example could be the teams Thanksgiving day game last season against the Detroit Lions. Bradford threw a late interception, helping the Lions seal a 16-13 victory."Me and Shurm have a great relationship," Bradford said. "We spent a lot of time together, and I think he knows me really well as a player and as a quarterback ... what I like and things we've done in the past.
"I'm really excited to get to work with him and see him again."
