It may be a bit early to think of a quarterback change, but might it not be a bad idea for the Rams to pick up Josh Freeman?
- Tampa Bay is still on the hook for his full base salary, so the Rams might not have to take all that much of a cap hit by signing him, especially if they back-load it for next year.
- His terrible numbers this season were as much because of his feud with Schiano, by all accounts a massive douchebag, as anything else. He had a great season last year.
- The Rams need a backup QB, bad. It's no secret that if Bradford goes down, so does our season. Hell, that actually happened in 2011, which was what? Oh yeah, a terrible season.
- Having a legitimate threat to take Bradford's job as starter just might light a fire under his ass. And hey, if it doesn't, we could always just give Freeman a try for a couple weeks! Maybe he'll surprise us.
I just really don't see where this is a bad move.
