In the wake of Sam Bradford's season-ending knee injury, the St. Louis Rams added two quarterbacks to their roster, as reported by Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Former Rams backup Austin Davis and former Cleveland first round pick Brady Quinn will be the team's newest additions.
Austin Davis rejoins the Rams after being cut after the season's final preseason game. Davis stuck as an undrafted free agent in 2012 out of Southern Mississippi. The Dolphins had him on their practice squad most recently. Davis provides another quarterback, in addition to Kellen Clemens who will start Monday night against Seattle, familiar with Brian Schottenheimer's offense.
Brady Quinn was with the New York Jets most recently as a backup, but was released on Monday when the team signed David Garrard. In addition to his time in Cleveland, Quinn quarterbacked in Denver and Kansas City. He was with Seattle during the 2013 preseason, but was cut after the final week when the Jets picked him up.
Quinn's most recent NFL action came last season with the Chiefs where he appeared in 10 games in relief of Matt Cassel. Quinn went 1-7 as a starter with the Chiefs, throwing just two touchdown passes compared to eight picks. Quinn has 24 career NFL starts, winning just four of them since entering the league in 2007.
