The St. Louis Rams have added two backup quarterbacks – Austin Davis and Brady Quinn – to provide depth after Sam Bradford’s torn ACL left them with Kellen Clemens as their only option under center, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Davis was signed by the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi after the 2012 draft but was released before the start of the 2013 season. Quinn was released by the Jets on Monday and has served as a backup for several teams throughout his career. He has 20 starts spread throughout his six years in the league.

Clemens will start for the Rams on Sunday, after serving as Bradford’s backup since the 2011 season.

Brady is knocking on J.T. O'Sullivan record of 10 teams played for. The Rams would make 6 for Brady

Reason Vince didn't get picked is that the local Cheescake Factory wouldn't extend credit to him and he declined

Unfortunately this loser franchise and other idiot NFL Coaches would rather lose with NFL Retreads like Brady Quinn and Clemens then win with Tim Tebow. I don't care how much you hate Tim Tebow, any team team with Tim Tebow starting will win more games then any of these NFL retreads.

Is Brady Quinn trying to set a record for teams played for???. Its the only record he will set in the NFL.

Even if you can't stand him, how in the world does Brady Quinn get signed when Tebow is sitting on the streets.  Again, I'm not saying that Tebow will light up the NFL, but he at least oughta provide a spark. What does Brady Quinn get you?

You think Brady can throw. Now that's funny.

I guess the Rams went with QB's who can throw instead of one (Tebow) who can't

@SandersonKramer stop the delusions ... he got lucky in a few games with a string team in denver ....other than that he is horrible and a real tool to boot

@r.mike.houston They didn't even consider Tebow.   You guys have to acknowledge that Austin Davis > Tebow.   John Skelton > Tebow.  Matt Flynn > Tebow.  Seneca Wallace > Tebow.  McLeod Bethel-Johnson > Tebow.  Rusty Smith > Tebow.  BJ Daniels > Tebow.  This isn't my opinion, it is the collective opinions of NFL GMs, who have signed all of the above QBs during the past 3 weeks.

@Bad1v I guess you would rather lose with Quinn, Clemens and other retread QBs then win with Tebow. You think like an NFL GM!

@Bad1v Tebow's career rating is 75.3.  Quinn is at 64.4.  Tebow has more TD passes than Quinn.  Ooooooooops.

@riley8 @Bad1v Tebow can't throw.  Or did you not watch him try to play for New England?

@riley8 And Vince Young has pretty much the same rating at TT and a bunch more TD passes.   Why aren't you yelling for him to get the job?

@Will10 Have you seen Brady Quinn throw?  His arm isn't any better than Tebow's.  Not that I think he should be signed, but there must be better qbs unsigned or on practice squads than Quinn.

@Will10 Maybe because he is retired and not looking for a job.  He's been out of the league for like 3 years now.
