Davis, Quinn added by Rams

News-DemocratOctober 22, 2013 

— In dire need of help at quarterback, the St. Louis Rams signed Austin Davis and reached a contract agreement with veteran Brady Quinn on Tuesday.

With those moves, the Rams now have three healthy quarterbacks going into Monday night contest against the Seattle Seahawks.

Davis, 24, was released prior to the start of the regular season after losing out to Kellen Clemons in a preseason battle for the job of backup quarterback.

Clemons now is the Rams' starting quarterback after Sam Bradford suffered a torn ACL in his left knee last Sunday in a 30-15 loss to the Carolina Panthers. Bradford will undergo season-ending surgery.

Davis is familair with the Rams' offense having spent all of last season on their roster after signing as an undrafted free agent. However, he never saw action in a regular-season game.

Quinn, who will turn 29 on Oct. 27, was released by the New York Jets on Monday.

The former Notre Dame standout is in his seventh season in the NFL. He's a former first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns, who also spent time with the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs.

For his career, Quinn has thrown for 3,0043 yards with 12 tuchdowns and 17 interceptions. His career quarterback rating or 24 games is 64.4.

Quinn is in his seventh season and coming off a short stint with the New York Jets in which he didn't take a snap. The former first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns spent three years there before two with Denver and a one with Kansas City.

The Rams had Quinn in for a visit Tuesday and he later agreed to terms on a deal. St. Louis had actually considered signing him as a backup before he joined the Chiefs last season.

In his career, Quinn has 3,043 passing yards, 12 touchdowns, 17 interceptions and a rating of 64.4 in 24 games.
