Barring injury, not a chance in hell.
Bruce had a couple poor seasons after Vermeil's Ram's fell apart and he was no longer the goto WR. But he has readjusted nicely as a complimentary WR to Holt and remains an extremely productive player. Last year rebound season didn't open very many peoples' eyes though, he still fell into the 6th, 7th, or later rounds when he should produce like a 4th rounder or earlier. He's over the hill right? Curtis is taking over? Bruce is basically the same age as Marvin Harrison...
And he nearly put up 1,300 yards last season. That's good for FIFTH overall in the NFL. More than Chad Johnson. More than Marvin Harrison. More than Tony Gonzalez.
Bruce got written off way too early IMO... Why do you think the Ram's kept him around on his $4+ million dollar salary this year? Because he is still worth it.
