Rams head coach Jeff Fisher did not mention Quick when discussing the team's competition at wide receiver during Thursday's media session, Vincent Bonsignore of the LA Daily News reports.
This may have just been an honest mistake, as the Rams have a slew of wideouts competing for slotting behind Kenny Britt and Tavon Austin. In fact, Quick got work with the first-team offense in the Rams' preseason opener, making his only catch (a 13-yarder) on the second drive of the game. He did then play deep into the second quarter, which suggests he still needs to earn a role.
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
