The St. Louis Rams could choose to replace one former Heisman Trophy winner with another. Or they could opt to pass on Tim Tebow the way several quarterback-needy teams have to this point.

Rams starting quarterback Sam Bradford suffered a potentially serious knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers. NFL Network's Michael Silver, the team at least has discussed internally the possibility of signing Tebow.

Now don't get too lathered up. Clearly from reading that, Silver is saying that the possibility of actually signing Tebow is still remote at this point. But CBS's Jason LaCanfora says he doesn't believe Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has any interest in Tebow.

The Rams might fear the worst for Bradford, who could be done for the season, but they apparently are not going to pull the trigger on Tebow.

After all, he might not be in football shape right this moment. Tebow has been spotted vacationing in Hawaii and hasn't taken a football snap since the preseason finale as a member of the New England Patriots.

But the Rams will need to sign a quarterback, perhaps two. Kellen Clemens is the only QB on the roster, and there are none on the practice squad, either. The free-agent options are drying up quickly, and by the time they scour the possibilities ... who knows? But as of now, Tebow doesn't appear to be on their list.
