Cue the Tebowmania.
The St. Louis Rams may soon be in need of a starting quarterback and they "have discussed signing Tim Tebow," according to Mike Silver of NFL Network.
Silver responded to the original tweet citing his reporting from NFL: Around The League in order to make clear that it was "unlikely" those discussions would lead to an actual signing of the unemployed quarterback.
An apparent left knee injury to starting quarterback Sam Bradford against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday could have the Rams discussing possible roster additions -- even Tebow, reportedly. An MRI later revealed that Bradford suffered a torn ACL, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Peter King reported on Twitter that Tebow could be among the quarterbacks worked out by the Rams if Bradford's injury is season ending. Kellen Clemens was the only other quarterback on the Rams' depth chart entering Week 7.
Interestingly, King reported that Vince Young would not be among the "usual suspects" vying for any potential opening with the Rams. Unlike Tebow, Young has not been shy about letting teams know he is willing to come in for a tryout.
Let them know VY is in shape and ready to go! I always loved my birth place and everyone who lives in it IM READY
