  • Rams' John Wolford: Re-signs with Rams

    Wolford officially signed his one-year tender from the Rams on Tuesday, independent NFL reporter Dov Kleiman reports.

    An exclusive rights free agent, Wolford couldn't negotiate with another team after being tendered by Los Angeles at the end of March. The 26-year-old quarterback should be the backup quarterback to Matthew Stafford for the 2022 campaign. Wolford made three garbage-time appearances last year, but the Wake Forest product's most memorable NFL moment came a season prior. While Jared Goff was sidelined due to thumb surgery for Week 17 of the 2020 season, Wolford drew his first career start and led the Rams to a playoff-clinching win over the Cardinals.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Tendered by Rams

    The Rams tendered Wolford a contract Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    As an exclusive rights free agent, Wolford can no longer negotiate with another team after being tendered by Los Angeles, which means he'll return to the Rams in 2022 as the backup to No. 1 quarterback Matthew Stafford. Wolford made three appearances in garbage time in 2021, with the Wake Forest's products most memorable NFL moments having come the season prior. While Jared Goff was sidelined due to thumb surgery for Week 17 of the 2020 season, Wolford started and led Los Angeles to a playoff-clinching win over the Cardinals.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Does little in garbage time

    Wolford completed one of his two passing attempts for five yards and also took an eight-yard sack during the fourth quarter of Sunday's 38-22 win over Houston.

    There's little to read into Wolford's appearance Sunday. He was in mop-up duty and only attempted the two passes through the entire fourth quarter. At best, the 26-year-old signal caller is a speculative stash in two-quarterback formats, as he doesn't project to receive meaningful playing time as long as No. 1 QB Matthew Stafford is healthy.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Off injured list

    Wolford (neck) wasn't listed on the Rams' injury report Wednesday, Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Wolford injured his neck in his first appearance of the 2021-22 campaign as he threw one interception on two pass attempts against the Giants. The backup quarterback is expected to be available for the Rams' matchup with the Lions in Week 7.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Nursing neck injury

    Wolford suffered a neck injury during Sunday's game against the Giants but is expected to be available in Week 7 against Detroit, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Wolford failed to complete a pass on two attempts and threw an interception in his brief appearance Sunday, and he also came away slightly banged up. However, head coach Sean McVay noted the backup quarterback should be ready to play in the team's upcoming contest if needed.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Set for season opener

    Wolford (appendix) isn't listed on the Rams' injury report Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    An emergency appendectomy was ordered up on Aug. 6 after Wolford was awakened in discomfort. He proceeded to sit out the entire preseason, even though he got back on the practice field Aug. 23 and directed the second-team offense. With the offseason trade of Jared Goff for Matthew Stafford, there's no question about Wolford's standing in the quarterback room as Stafford's direct backup.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Given clean bill of health

    Wolford isn't expected to play Saturday after coach Sean McVay said QB Bryce Perkins would play the entire game against the Broncos, with Wolford serving only as an emergency option with no other backup quarterbacks on the roster, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Wolford remains the projected backup to No. 1 quarterback Matthew Stafford heading into the 2021 season. It's encouraging to hear Wolford has quickly recovered from the appendectomy he underwent earlier this month, and he ran all of the second-team reps during practice Monday. While there probably isn't a lot of current fantasy upside with the third-year signal caller in most settings, McVay has shown confidence in Wolford in the past because of his dual-threat potential.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Will not play in preseason

    Rams head coach Sean McVay said Tuesday that Wolford (appendix) won't be available to play during the preseason, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

    The backup quarterback is continuing to recover from an appendectomy he had last week. In his absence, look for Bryce Perkins and Devlin Hodges to carry the load for the majority of the preseason snaps. However, the Rams seem set to have Wolford as their main backup to Matthew Stafford for the 2021 season.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Undergoes appendectomy

    Wolford had an appendectomy Friday and will be sidelined for 10-14 days, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.

    Wolford woke up with discomfort Friday morning and underwent surgery once its nature was determined. Based off his return timetable, he won't get any preseason action until Saturday, Aug. 21, at the earliest. It's more likely that if he does, though, it'll happen in the Rams' exhibition finale Saturday, Aug. 28 at Denver. When healthy, Wolford serves as L.A.'s No. 2 QB behind Matthew Stafford, but his absence will allow Bryce Perkins and Devlin Hodges to get more reps with the reserves.

  • Rams' John Wolford: Set for backup duties

    Wolford will back up Matthew Stafford during the 2021 season, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN reports.

    There was speculation that Wolford could compete with Jared Goff this offseason for the starting QB job after he started the regular-season finale and the team's first playoff game last season. Wolford's brief time under center wasn't anything special, and the rumblings that he could battle for the starting job were likely more to motivate Goff more than set up an open competition. Nevertheless, just three days after that report, the Rams acquired Matthew Stafford from the Lions for Goff, two first-round picks and a third-round pick. There won't be a competition for the starting job anymore, but Wolford has likely locked up the backup gig.
