Rams Re-Sign Clemens

Posted by nickwagoner on April 18, 2012 – 3:30 PM

– The Rams re-signed veteran QB Kellen Clemens on Monday evening.

– Clemens finished the season starting for the Rams as Sam Bradford nursed an ankle injury.

– Clemens threw for 546 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for a rating of 73.8 in his backup appearances last year.

– The addition of Clemens likely ends the Rams’ interest in veteran QB Dennis Dixon, whom the team brought in on a free agent visit a couple of weeks ago.

– As it stands, Clemens and Tom Brandstater are the backups to Bradford on the roster.

– Clemens is expected to practice with the team in the second and final workout of this week’s voluntary veteran minicamp.

    Clemens did real well, considering his time spent working with the first team and any healthy guys he had to work with. But, I was really hoping the Rams would pick Casey Keenum in the sixth rd. He didn’t do well at the combine or his pro day from what I here. But, come on. The young QB, is just a great passer and knows how to QB. You don’t break all them records by an accident. He did it every year. He produces. He isn’t an almost. Size, tell that to Drew Brees.

    Kellen, is the right choice for Sams’ Backup. He is very familar with Shotty’s offense, is a team player, has experience in the backup role.

    keeping Clemens is a good move. He did well last year in the backup QB role for the team. Provided that Bradford dosn’t get hurt, we should do well this year, aftr all we can only go up in comparison to last year.

    Clemens was a game guy, easy to like. But I am still upset with Spags for dumping T. Lewis for Feeley, who should have been kept on as QB coach. A poor coach / GM can do harm felt for years to come. Good to see this new regime making a lot of smart moves. They have had a difficult hand dealt to them, but seem to be building a solid team, step by step. With a good draft and few injuries, this team will contend, maybe even excel faster than we might have hoped.

    The Rams made a great choice in resigning Kellen. He demonstrated his skill level last year. But, more importantly he compliments this with a maturity, intelligence, and professionalism that will instill confidence in the entire team should he need to step in at a moments notice.

    Im a huge Kellen Clemens fan and think he is completely underated as a quarterback. I liked him when he was with the jets and was happy when st louis picked him up. Hes all about the team and performs when he gets the call. I want to see him get some playing time this year. Lets go #10.
