The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says the Rams are "strongly considering" taking a quarterback in May's draft.
GM Les Snead has ruled out using a first-round pick at the position, but it'll be in play after that. Sam Bradford has shown an inability to sustain health or effectiveness, and backup Shaun Hill is 34 years old. Austin Davis is not a legit developmental option. Beat writer Jim Thomas mentions Pittsburgh's Tom Savage, SMU's Garrett Gilbert, Georgia's Aaron Murray, Fresno State's Derek Carr and Clemson's Tajh Boyd (among others) as Day 2 or 3 possibilities.

Rams signed QB Austin Davis.

A 2012 undrafted free agent, Davis was released at final cuts. He'll slide in at No. 3 on the depth chart behind Kellen Clemens and Brady Quinn. Were Clemens to get injured or benched, Davis would have a chance to eventually unseat Quinn, who has never shown anything to suggest he deserves to be quarterbacking an NFL team.

Rams waived QB Austin Davis, WR Emory Blake, and S Cody Davis.

C. Davis was St. Louis' highest priority among UDFAs, receiving the club's biggest undrafted signing bonus. They'd likely want to keep him around on the practice squad. A. Davis was beaten out for backup duties by Kellen Clemens.

Undrafted rookie QB Austin Davis "has been nothing short of precocious in his first NFL training camp," according to the Rams official website.

Through three preseason games, the former Southern Miss star is 21-of-30 (70 percent) for 207 yards (6.9 YPA). Coach Jeff Fisher confirms Davis has picked up the offense quickly and "done a great job." With the release of Kellen Clemens, Davis will enter the season as Sam Bradford's backup.
