By now I think everyone knows that Peyton Manning is a member of the Broncos, and that Tim Tebow could be heading to a new team. I can’t say that I’m 100% sure, but I’m fairly certain that team will not be the Rams. There was an article over at Profootballtalk.com that listed “Ten off-radar potential destinations for Tebow”, and that list had the Rams atop the list. That isn’t going to happen.
First of all, the Rams aren’t going to waste a draft pick to bring in a backup to Sam Bradford, especially one who doesn’t fit the offense. This team wants a fairly cheap, veteran backup, and it’s usually not that hard to find one of those.
Second, this team has plenty of holes to fill without worrying about Tebow and the circus he would bring with him. Why would they want to put that extra pressure on Bradford? The guy is coming off a rough season, and the last thing he needs is the city of St. Louis clamoring for his backup to take over. Bradford is the future, and this organization isn’t going to do anything to impede his development.
Finally, Tebow just isn’t very good. He might be a great guy and a hard worker, but he’s not a starting-quality NFL QB. The Tebow apologists can point to his record last season all they want, but just watch the tape. He isn’t there yet, and the proof is that John Elway and the Broncos couldn’t wait to replace him. He isn’t going to be a Ram anytime soon.
