The Rams traded away the right to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III in 2012 for a big return, although they haven’t been able to turn that bounty of picks into a playoff berth over the last four seasons.
A big reason for that has been the lack of strong quarterback play, something that has left the team with Case Keenum and Nick Foles as their top two quarterbacks heading into the 2016 season. During an interview with NFL Network, Rams coach Jeff Fisher was asked if the current makeup of the depth chart made it possible that things could come full circle with the currently unsigned Griffin.
“I think it’s something we have to consider. We’ve looked at the tape,” Fisher said. “I was very impressed with him prior to the draft.”
Fisher added that the Rams weren’t in a hurry to add a free agent, which might make Griffin interest a moot point as the Browns appear to be thinking about adding him to their own quarterback stew. If things play out that way, Fisher sounds like he’d be OK.
“It’s a position we need to upgrade, but we can win games with Case,” Fisher said.
It seems likely that the Rams will add someone to the mix this offseason. Their general lack of urgency about doing so makes it feel likelier that Keenum remains on top of the depth chart in the near term, however.
