Desperate times call for desperate conversations. In St. Louis, that means the possibility of adding Tim Tebow to the roster.
A Rams source told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver on Sunday that the team has at least internally discussed the possibility of signing Tim Tebow, though it is highly unlikely it actually will happen.
St. Louis is in dire need of quarterback depth, however, as NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday night that Sam Bradfordtore his ACL during the Rams' loss at Carolina, according to two sources informed of the situation.
The injury likely knocks Bradford out for the rest of the season. Rapoport reported that the Rams are expected to work out several quarterbacks on Monday.
A little Tebow talk shouldn't be a complete shock. The Rams were one of the teams that inquired about trading for Tebow in 2012 before the Denver Broncos dealt him to the New York Jets.
Kellen Clemens is the Rams' backup, and no other quarterback is on the roster. They need to add someone to the mix, but we can't imagine them wanting to bring in Tebow unless he had a real chance to get on the field.
As Silver reported, it's highly unlikely Tebow will be signed. But the news is a reminder: Tebow's story, like a cockroach, never truly dies. It just hides in the corner, waiting for another chance.
