Tim Tebow will not be signing with the St. Louis Rams, despite popular speculation, according to the Bleacher Report.
Desperate times often call for desperate measures, but despite the St. Louis Rams’ dire straits at quarterback, signing Tim Tebow is reportedly not a direction the organization is ready to go in.
According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Rams do not intend to sign the maligned signal-caller.
Speculation regarding the Rams’ interest in Tebow picked up steam on Sunday as starting quarterback Sam Bradford was forced to leave the team’s game against the Carolina Panthers with a knee injury. It certainly looked bad when it initially happened, and the Rams’ worst fear was realized as Bradford suffered a torn ACL, which will keep him out for the remainder of the season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
NFL.com’s Michael Silver reported that the Rams had discussed potentially signing Tebow following the injury, but even he admitted that St. Louis following through with the signing was unlikely.
It was an exciting few hours for Tebow supporters as he hasn’t received any interest from NFL teams since getting cut by the New England Patriots prior to the season.
