Rams coach Jeff Fisher said there was a chance that the Rams would sign a pair of quarterbacks in response to the season-ending knee injury suffered by Sam Bradford.
Fisher must know somebody in management because that’s just what the Rams are doing. Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the team has signed Austin Davis and agreed to terms with Brady Quinn to fill out a depth chart currently fronted by Kellen Clemens.
Davis spent 2012 as the third quarterback in St. Louis and spent this summer with the Rams as well before being cut after Clemens won the battle for the backup spot. Quinn was cut by the Jets on Monday when they activated David Garrard, which turned out to be pretty good timing for the journeyman given Bradford’s injury.
Clemens hasn’t started a game since 2011 and has never been particularly impressive in his limited previous experiences in the top job with the Jets and Rams. It’s not clear how Davis and Quinn will stack up behind him, but whoever is No. 2 may get a shot should Clemens’ past history repeat itself.
Thomas reports that the Rams released guard Brandon Washington. They’d need to make another roster move to open up enough space for both the new quarterbacks.
