Rams HC Jeff Fisher told reporters that they will consider the idea of possibly signing multiple quarterbacks this week now that Sam Bradford is out for the season with a torn ACL.

“It is a possibility, yes,” Fisher said, via Pro Football Talk.  “There is a possibility we will bring a number of prospects in, and there is a good possibility we will sign more than one, yes.  So, we would then have to make a roster move, but those are kinds of things we’re discussing now.

The list of quarterbacks coming in for a tryout on Tuesday includes: David CarrJohn SkeltonBrady Quinn,  Tylger Thigpen and Matt Leinart
