According to Bleacher Report’s Chris Roling, the Rams have the NFL 21st-ranked quarterback room. For this exercise, he only took into account the top two guys, which for the Rams includes Jared Goff and John Wolford.

Per Roling, he thinks the Rams are in a sketchy place with Goff after last season.

“Goff’s passing attempts leaped from 561 to 626 in 2019, yet he regressed in passing yardage, completion percentage and touchdowns while experiencing an uptick in interceptions,” he said. “He ended up completing 62.9 percent of his passes for 4,638 yards and 22 touchdowns against 16 interceptions. He went 9-7 with two game-winning drives and a 23rd-ranked 48.5 QBR.”

While the passing yardage isn’t anything to scoff at, his touchdown to interception ratio is an apparent smear on what has been a fairly glistening resume the last few seasons.

Per Roling, Goff’s cap hits over the next three seasons are reportedly set at $29 million, $34 million, and $32 million, respectively. If he’s going to be worth anywhere near that type of money, last year’s numbers aren’t going to do it.

“It’s worth raising such a point because the Rams might be running out of patience. They also don’t seem to have taken the quality of depth too seriously, with former undrafted free agent and practice-squad member John Wolford serving as the main backup.”

Through eight games in the now-defunct Alliance of American Football, Wolford was one of the best and most-consistent quarterbacks for the Arizona Hotshots. Before the league folded, Wolford threw for 1,617 yards with 14 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 160 yards and rushing score.
