QB Stetson Bennett set to join Rams for offseason workouts

Quarterback Stetson Bennett will join the Los Angeles Rams for offseason workouts, general manager Les Snead said Monday.

The Rams selected Bennett, who led Georgia to two national championships, in the fourth round of the 2023 draft. He left the team in the preseason and spent the season on the reserve/non-football illness list.

Last month, coach Sean McVay said the Rams would reach out to Bennett, 26, “at the appropriate time” to see if they were a good fit.

“Those will be conversations that we will have. And then I think once we have a better idea of what we’ll do with that, then that will give clarity.”

Neither Bennett nor McVay ever disclosed why Bennett left the team, with the coach only saying the issue was “bigger than” football.

Matthew Stafford is entrenched as the Rams starting quarterback, and the team signed veteran Jimmy Garoppolo as his backup earlier this month.
