The drop from Sam Bradford to Kellen Clemens is pretty drastic. The drop from Sam Bradford to Matt Leinart is like falling off a cliff. Alas, that’s the reality facing the St. Louis Rams this morning after finding out that starting quarterback Sam Bradford has a torn ACL.
The Rams are reportedly not interested in Vince Young or Tim Tebow, though, are apparently working out Matt Leinart who was cut by the Buffalo Bills during training camp as he tried to replace the injured EJ Manuel.
That didn’t work out and now Leinart is hopeful he’ll be able to sign with the Rams.
Leinart has only played in four games since 2009 (!!), two with the Oakland Raiders and two with the Houston Texans. It’s doubtful the Rams would bring Leinart in to be anything more than emergency backup to Clemmens, though, neither option is overly attractive.
It’s possible the Rams may look to the trade market for quarterback help.
