Rams making A.J. Feely their next warm body at QB?

The St. Louis Rams are reportedly close to striking a deal with free agent QB A.J. Feeley. The 32-year-old Feeley spent last season as a backup on the Panthers. He has not thrown a pass in an NFL game since 2007.

(Hat tip to Carneros for his comment).

Read whatever you want into the situation, but I think this is purely about getting a backup QB who knows the offensive system. Feeley has just 15 starts since being drafted in the fifth round in 2001. Feeley replaces Boller, in my opinion. 

So, what does this move say about the Rams plans to address their starting QB situation? Not much really. Feeley would be a backup whether or not the Rams drafted Bradford, kept Bulger or traded for someone else. The only question I have is whether or not Feeley would supersede Null for the #2 QB job. That probably depends on how Null does in camp and the preseason. 

And there you have it, folks, the Rams first move (maybe) of the 2010 free agency period.
