The St. Louis Rams could sign Tim Tebow after starting quarterback Sam Bradford was injured during Sunday’s 30-15 loss against the Carolina Panthers.
NFL Network’s Michael Silver acknowledges that the St. Louis Rams are investigating the possibility of a Tim Tebow signing, but he believes it is unlikely to happen.
Bradford will undergo an MRI on Monday after X-rays led team officials to believe further tests are needed. Bradford landed awkwardly on his left knee while diving out of bounds on Monday. The QB missed a tackle but ended up injured.
Tim Tebow was released by the New England Patriots prior to the start of the season. Several rumors liked the former Florida player to various teams, however, none of those rumors brought about any type of deal. A Russian football team went on to offer Tebow $1 million to play in a round of playoff games.
Tebow’s last official regular season game was with the New York Jets in 2012. He completed six passes for 39 yards.
Bradford was selected with the first pick in the 2010 NFL draft while Tebow was selected 25th overall by the Denver Broncos. Tebow played with the Broncos for two seasons before he was traded in place of former Colts pro-bowler and future hall of fame quarterback Peyton Manning.
The St. Louis Rams will be in desperate need for another quarterback if Sam Bradford is out for any period of time. The only other QB on the teams roster is Kellen Clemens. He threw 2 of 3 for 19 yards during his short period of play on Sunday.
Whether or not Tim Tebow will even be needed is not yet known. We also don’t know if he would play QB 2 for Clemens or take over at the starting position. It’s likely he would take some time at the backup position until he had some time to learn the teams offense and fall into sync with the teams offensive line.
Do you think Tim Tebow is a better choice at quarterback for the St. Louis Rams than Kellen Clemens?
