Fisher doesn’t rule out adding multiple quarterbacks

Fisher AP

When the Rams hold their quarterback Gong Show, more than one could win the $516.32 grand prize.

Coach Jeff Fisher said Monday that the team could sign multiple backups for a depth chart that, given Sam Bradford’s season-ending injury, has only one healthy quarterback.

“It is a possibility, yes,” Fisher said, via quotes distributed by the team.  “There is a possibility we will bring a number of prospects in, and there is a good possibility we will sign more than one, yes.  So, we would then have to make a roster move, but those are kinds of things we’re discussing now.”

Fisher declined to name names. He also ruled out a possible trade.

Whoever gets the job(s) will be expected to get ready quickly; the Rams host the Seahawks on Monday night.

“There would be a limited package this week, but fortunately we have an extra day,” Fisher said.  “So, whoever ends up being [No.] 2 and/or [No.] 3 would have a limited package to get us through the ballgame.”

At least for now, No. 1 will be Kellen Clemens.

“Kellen is great in the building,” Fisher said. “On the field, he does a great job. His former role as of yesterday was to help the defense get ready and then support him, be ready to come off in the event that he needed to play. He prepares himself, he has a really good understanding of this offense, and he’s kind of a gunslinger. He’s going to run around and just make plays. He’s a tough guy and he’s a great teammate.”

Clemens last started a game in 2011, the year before Fisher became head coach of the Rams. A second-round pick of the Jets in 2006, Clemens has 12 career starts in seven NFL seasons.

    How much more obvious could it be Goodell has it out for the Rams? He’s the reason Bradford tore his ACL.

    Side note. I don’t have a Twitter so let’s get that hastag trending on PFT.

    Matt Flynn will get cut by buffalo any day now! he’s well on his way to completing tours with all 32 teams.

    I don’t regret passing on RG3. I regret passing on Tennehill.

    Limited packages? That has Tebow written all over it.

  9. firerogergoodellnow says: Oct 21, 2013 8:54 PM

    How about JaMarcus Russell?

  10. henryjones20 says: Oct 21, 2013 8:56 PM

    there has to be at least one mcgowen brother left that’s available. they have made a fortune doing nothing but confuse us.

  11. assuredmutualdestruction says: Oct 21, 2013 9:00 PM

    Seattle is going to crush them on MNF.

  12. nkmho says: Oct 21, 2013 9:01 PM

    Teblow Time!

  13. assuredmutualdestruction says: Oct 21, 2013 9:07 PM

    When are they going to move on from Fisher? That offense looked pathetic even before Bradford got hurt.

  14. ytownjoe says: Oct 21, 2013 9:16 PM

    A 7th rounder for Weeden?

  15. giantboy99 says: Oct 21, 2013 9:25 PM

    Kurt Warner anyone

  16. paychrisjohnson28 says: Oct 21, 2013 9:30 PM

    Tim Tebow

    Vince Young

  17. bigbamboom1 says: Oct 21, 2013 9:31 PM

    Okay. Desperate times call for desperate measures. So sign Tebow right away. Leave a thick trail of cake crumbs from Louisiana to St Louis for JaMarcus Russell. And he’ll arrive in a few weeks. Swallow your pride and sign Vince Young. He knows your system. And you two may actually be good for each other the second time around.

    Jeff George is waiting patiently by the phone.

  19. keltictim says: Oct 21, 2013 9:36 PM

    Trade next years first round pick and 2 2015 seconds for Ryan mallet.

  20. stlunatik says: Oct 21, 2013 9:41 PM

    Where the hell is Mark Bulger when you need someone to take sacks all game. Better yet, Tony Banks Bahahaaha

  21. thestrategyexpert says: Oct 21, 2013 9:46 PM

    Ok Lebron is ready for the next game. If it goes well he might do another.

  22. fumblenuts says: Oct 21, 2013 9:48 PM

    One more tour of duty for Brady Quinn??

  23. corkspop says: Oct 21, 2013 10:36 PM

    Jimmie Clausen

  24. htowntexan says: Oct 21, 2013 10:52 PM

    Can I interest you in a glass Schaub? While he gets in the fetal position at the first sign of pressure, only throws to the receiver he picks out before the play, can’t run, is not a leader, and generally sucks, he does have a hot wife.

  25. capn0bvious says: Oct 21, 2013 11:06 PM

    As a Seahawks fan, I definitely think the Rams should go for Tim Tebow. Make him your starter, in fact. And do it before next Monday night. Don’t bother bringing him up to speed on your playbook, he’s a pro, he’ll figure it out.

  26. chawk12thman says: Oct 21, 2013 11:30 PM

    Kellen is great in the building……???? You may want to look for a QB that has potential to be great on the field.

  27. jhaegs says: Oct 22, 2013 1:02 AM

    Schottenheimer needs to GTFO of here. I’m tired of his play it safe offense. What do the Rams have to lose? Ever notice that when the Rams are forced to spread the field, they actually move the ball. They need to run a hurry up offense and take shots with the many offensive weapons they have. How bout they figure out how to use the most explosive player in the 2013 draft?

  28. krakyahead says: Oct 22, 2013 1:08 AM

    Somewhere Jeff George is dusting off his helmet.

  29. Ram says: Oct 22, 2013 2:55 AM

    Two first round picks in the upcoming draft. Though Bradford’s contract is very bloated, what do you think the chances of the Rams drafting one of the many awesome QBs who will be available? I would say very good.

  30. WACANHFL says: Oct 22, 2013 8:45 AM

    Brett Farve is ready.
    As soon as he makes his last picks for fantasy football…

  31. grruffgrruff says: Oct 22, 2013 10:48 AM

    Brady Quinn & Austin Davis
