After Bradford went down with a torn ACL in Week 7, Kellen Clemens took over as the primary signal caller and exceeded all expectations (if any at all), throwing for 1,673 yards, eight touchdowns and seven interceptions. Still Fisher would not say if Clemens, who is a pending free agent, would be back with the Rams in 2014.
"Well we've got Austin Davis," Fisher said via ESPN.com's Nick Wagoner. "I was really happy with his progress. Still there's a possibility that we would bring Kellen back. Kellen's an outstanding locker room guy and very competitive. And if that were the case we'd probably flip things to where Austin would be (No.) 2 and Kellen would be 3."
Davis and Clemens competed for the backup job last preseason. Ultimately, Clemens won the job and Davis was cut. The Rams would re-sign Davis as Clemens' backup after Bradford's injury. It looks like Davis and Clemens could be facing off in another competition for the backup job this summer. But it looks like Fisher and the Rams are hoping for a different result this time around.
The possibility of the Rams signing another quarterback via free agency during the offseason also cannot be ruled out. There are plenty of veteran quarterbacks available that would serve any team well in a backup role, including Josh McCown of the Chicago Bears, Michael Vick of the Philadelphia Eagles and Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans.
