Rams sign former AAF QB John Wolford

The Rams have added their second quarterback of the offseason in former Alliance of American Football signal-caller John Wolford.

Wolford will join another newcomer in former Jacksonville Jaguar Blake Bortles in the Rams' quarterbacks room as the offseason program is set to begin next week, after posting 1,617 passing yards and a league-leading 14 touchdowns in six games with the Arizona Hotshots. Starter Jared Goff and 2017-2018 third QB Brandon Allen are also currently on Los Angeles' roster.

Wolford spent his college days at Wake Forest and earned second-team All-ACC honors as a senior, leading the Demon Deacons to the Belk Bowl, where he became the first FBS player since 2000 to pass for at least 400 yards, rush for at least 65 yards, and throw no interceptions in a bowl game.

The young quarterback was picked up as an undrafted free agent by the Jets and played in one preseason game against the Eagles in 2018. He completed eight passes for 89 yards and threw an interception in his only NFL showing.
