The Rams have signed former Saints wide receiver Nick Toon according to Ross Jones of Fox Sports.
The Rams are getting close to zero production from their receiver corps outside of Kenny Britt but Toon isn’t going to come in and change anything. He will be a deep reserve who needs to carve out a role on special teams to keep his roster spot. Toon also worked out for the Seattle Seahawks last week.
Not yet addressed is why Rams receiver Brian Quick has been a healthy scratch for the past three games despite the weakness of their receivers. Quick, who the Rams drafted early in the second round (ahead of the Bears’ Alshon Jeffery among otherr) out of Appalachian State in 2012, seemed on his way to a breakout year in 2014 before going down with a serious shoulder injury but for some undisclosed reason appears to have earned a permanent spot in head coach Jeff Fisher’s doghouse.
Granted, Quick doesn’t play special teams as seems to be a requirement in the Fisher regime but it is hard to believe beleaguered Rams QB Nick Foles couldn’t use another big, fast wide receiver.
