Brock Osweiler (Broncos, Texans, Browns, Dolphins)
This is a long shot, but still, one that is worth mentioning. Veteran quarterback Brock Osweiler is the tallest quarterback ever to be drafted, measuring just shy of 6-foot-8. A second-round pick in 2012 by the Denver Broncos, the hope was that Osweiler would take over from Peyton Manning at the end of the legend’s career.
He saw the field a lot during the 2015 season, which earned him a big “prove it” contract the following season with the Houston Texans. It didn’t work out though, and the Texans drafted Deshaun Watson in the first round. After that, the Texans shipped Osweiler to the Browns.
Osweiler seems to struggle with processing plays more than 10 yards downfield. His vision is very limited, and puts a huge damper on his ability, despite having a good arm. He wouldn’t be the ideal backup, but he could potentially help as a depth player with experience.
As a positive, he has never had the type of offense nor quarterback support that can be found on the LA Rams right now. While the impact would not be overnight, the Rams could certainly bring him onboard, park him on the practice squad and coach him up to be available for the second half of the season. In the end, inexpensive free-agent options to help the Rams are still available. The real question is: Have the Rams already decided that three quarterbacks are enough for 2020?
