Brian Quick signed an undisclosed one-year contract with the Los Angeles Rams on Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
The Rams have to be hoping Quick bounces back in 2016 after a rough campaign last year. He had only 10 catches for 102 yards, but was recovering from possible career-ending shoulder surgery. He was a very minor part of the offense in 2015 but as the Rams are bringing him back, they must have a plan to perhaps increase his role.
Brian Quick finished off his 2015 campaign with two catches for 23 yards in a 19-16 overtime loss to San Francisco on Sunday.
It was a very strange season for Quick, who was proclaimed healthy to start the year but didn't play until October. He never seemed himself, however, as he caught only 10 of his 32 targets for 102 yards, and one-third of those yards came on a single catch against the Bears on Nov. 15. Perhaps an offseason of rest could help Quick return to his 2014 form, but considering his shoulder injury was called career-threatening at one point, he may not be the same player again.
Brian Quick caught a single pass for 14 yards in a 27-3 pasting at the hands of the Cardinals on Sunday.
Quick has seen a bunch of targets the last few weeks, averaging more than five, but hasn't been able to corral many of them. He only has one game this season with more than a catch and has completely fallen off the fantasy map.
Sunday was Quick's first multi-catch game of the season. The fourth-year receiver has seen 12 of his 20 targets this season come in the past three games with Stedman Bailey out of the lineup. Quick is currently fighting with Wes Welker and Bradley Marquez for catches behind starters Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin. Considering the
Brian Quick tallied one catch for 37 yards in a 37-13 loss to Chicago on Sunday.
While the number of receptions aren't encouraging, at least the targets are as Quick was thrown to seven times. It looks like the St. Louis Rams are finally trying to get Quick back involved in the offense, and although it didn't work out well on Sunday, perhaps that bodes better for Quick in the future.
