Rams may be interested in Tim Tebow, according to NFL Network

The St. Louis Rams "have discussed signing Tim Tebow," Mike Silver of the NFL Network reported. That news comes on the heels of starting St. Louis QB Sam Bradford suffering a serious knee injury.

But before everyone goes nuts on the Tebow-as-St. Louis savior storyline, Silver himself tempered the rumor: "I believe it's unlikely they'll actually sign him," he later tweeted.

A long-term injury to Bradford would force St. Louis to look elsewhere for help, though. Kellen Clemens replaced Bradford on Sunday in a 30-15 loss to Carolina; he finished 2-of-4 for 19 yards. The Rams do not have another quarterback, either on their current roster or their practice squad, so at the very least they would need to add some protection for Clemens. Tebow does appear to be a longshot, however. On Monday morning, St. Louis Post-Dispatch  writer Jim Thomas also shot down the possibility that the Rams could bring in Tebow.

The Rams will host the Seahawks next Monday night, and they do not have a bye until Week 11.

Tebow last saw regular-season game action in Week 16 last season as a member of the Jets. Weeks prior, he completed 3-of-3 passes (for eight yards) against the Seahawks. He was released by New York in April, then signed with the Patriots later in the offseason. He failed to latch on there, thanks in no small part to a subpar preseason, and was part of the Patriots' final cuts.
