St. Louis has added some depth at quarterback, picking up Case Keenum. He joins starter Shaun Hill and Austin Davis at his position on the roster. Keenum will wear No. 17.

The quarterback spent the last two seasons with the Texans, signing with the franchise as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He spent all of that season on the practice squad, before making his regular-season debut with a start against the Chiefs in 2013.

The quarterback started eight games last year, amassing 1,760 yards passing with nine touchdowns and six interceptions. He threw for three TDs and no picks in two consecutive games, a 27-24 loss to the Colts, and a 27-24 loss to Arizona.

In college, Keenum set a plethora of records at Houston. He threw for 5,000 yards in a season three times, and finished his career with 19,217 yards passing -- an NCAA FBS record. He also set FBS records for passing touchdowns (155), total touchdowns (178), and total yards (20,114).
