Tom Brandstater, Former Denver Broncos QB, Reportedly In Line To Start MNF For St. Louis Rams

Only the most diehard or diehards can name where Tom Brandstater has spent his time in the NFL. Or, at least Denver Broncos fans could since he was drafted by the team in the sixth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He signed a four-year deal worth over $1.5 million and then was released by the team in June 2010 after the team acquired Brady Quinn from the Cleveland Browns.

Since then, Brandstater has traveled around the NFL to the Indianapolis Colts, the Miami Dolphins and the Dallas Cowboys. During training camp 2011, Brandstate eventually latched on with the St. Louis Rams. He was a body for the practice squad and wound up making several roster transactions with the Rams.

That is until this week. Gregg Rosenthal of Pro Football Talk believes that Brandstater is actually going to start for the Rams on Monday Night Football because Sam Bradford is dealing with an ankle injury.

Brandstater has no NFL experience. And to think, the Broncos could have Brandstate under center if it weren't for drafting Tim Tebow and trading for Brady Quinn.
