TAMPA — Several quarterback-needy teams wanted to sign John Wolford from the Bucs practice squad, but he has decided to remain with Tampa Bay.
Wolford, 28, was signed to the Bucs’ 53-man roster Tuesday.
The Rams were thin at the position after announcing Matthew Stafford has a sprained UCL in the thumb of his throwing hand. Brett Rypien is the backup, but rookie Stetson Bennett is on the non-football injury list.
Wolford served as the backup to Stafford and Jared Goff during his four seasons with the Rams and even started a playoff game. But he was replaced by Rypien this offseason.
The Vikings lost starter Kirk Cousins to a torn Achilles.
