Option IV: Quarterback Carson Wentz

Wouldn't it be ironic if the LA Rams signed the player they passed up to draft rookie quarterback Jared Goff with the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft? Well when times are tough, sometimes you do what you have to do.

Regardless of your feelings about Wentz as an option for the Rams roster, let's be clear. We're talking about making the right moves for this team to improve the Rams' overall talent level. As long as the Rams can add a veteran passer like Wentz, it's a move that the Rams front office must consider.

After all, he is still a Second-Team NFL All-Pro quarterback. He is a former Pro Bowler and he is also one of an elite few quarterbacks who can boast of being a former Super Bowl Champion.

Sure. Philadelphia Eagles backup QB Nick Foles won the big game for the Philadelphia Eagles that year, but Wentz doesn't get enough credit for getting them to that point.

In that Eagles Super Bowl season, he posted a line of 265 completions out of 440 attempts for 3,296 yards, 33 touchdowns, and just 7 interceptions. He also managed to earn a passer rating of 101.9. And let's be clear, we are talking about a backup quarterback role only, something that is critical for the Rams to address now.

When it comes to backup quarterbacks, teams could certainly do much worse. And the Rams have proven in their success with former backup quarterback Baker Mayfield that this offense can rejuvenate the NFL careers of severely damaged NFL quarterback careers.

Wentz would certainly be an upgrade to the Rams' current backup, Brett Rypien. This is a move that just makes sense, especially given the speculation earlier this offseason that the Rams would be a good fit for the free-agent QB.
