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.
