Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sign Former Rams Quarterback

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made another addition to their quarterback roster, signing John Wolford, formerly of the Los Angeles Rams.

This marks the second Rams quarterback to join the Buccaneers this offseason, alongside Baker Mayfield.

Wolford, who had been with the Rams since 2019, brings veteran NFL experience to the Buccaneers. He started four games during his time in Los Angeles, achieving a 2-2 record. While he did not throw a pass before being replaced by Mayfield in one game, he was still credited with a win over the Raiders last season.

After the Rams chose not to re-sign Wolford this offseason, the Buccaneers saw an opportunity and welcomed him to their team.

It's worth noting that the Buccaneers have been proactive in bolstering their quarterback depth, as they also drafted Kyle Trask and acquired Mayfield to compete for the starting job following Tom Brady's retirement.

Wolford's career statistics show room for improvement, with one touchdown pass and five interceptions in his NFL tenure. However, his versatility was demonstrated in his debut, where he became the first quarterback to throw for over 200 yards and rush for over 50 yards.

Prior to his time with the Rams, Wolford entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the New York Jets in 2018.

Over his three-year career, the 28-year-old holds a 58.7 completion percentage, with one touchdown and five interceptions across seven games played. Photo Credit: Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports
