Los Angeles Rams Sign Free Agent Quarterback

The Los Angeles Rams have been busy making changes to their quarterback lineup in recent weeks.

They drafted Stetson Bennett from Georgia in the fourth round of the NFL draft and shortly thereafter signed Dresser Winn as a college free agent.

The team has now agreed to a one-year deal with veteran quarterback Brett Rypien, as reported by Mike Klis of 9News.

Rypien previously spent three seasons with the Denver Broncos, where he played in four games last season, including two starts in place of an injured Russell Wilson.

During those games, Rypien completed 80-of-130 passes for 778 yards, with four touchdowns and eight interceptions.

It's worth noting that two of the Rams' backups from last season, John Wolford and Bryce Perkins, remain unsigned free agents.

While Rypien's experience in the NFL may give him an advantage over Bennett, the rookie quarterback will likely put up a good fight in the competition for the backup position behind starting quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Regardless of who wins the backup job, the Rams seem to be building depth at the quarterback position to ensure they have options in case of injuries or other unforeseen circumstances. Photo Credit:  Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports
