  • Rams' Brett Rypien: Will join active roster

    Rypien will be signed to the Rams' 53-man roster from their practice squad Thursday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Rypien will be the beneficiary of Stetson Bennett's placement on the reserve/non-football injury list, which took place Wednesday. The Boise State product will now operate as Matthew Stafford's backup beginning Sunday against the 49ers. The 27-year-old appeared in four games with the Broncos last season, completing 53 of 88 passes for 483 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions.

  • Brett Rypien: Reverts to practice squad

    Rypien has reverted to the Rams' practice squad, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Although he was elevated to Los Angeles' practice squad Saturday, Rypien never saw the field. He served as Matthew Stafford's backup under center, and his services were ultimately never needed on the field. The quarterback could ultimately be called up again for Week 2 depending on Stetson Bennett's (shoulder) status.

  • Rams' Brett Rypien: Elevated from practice squad

    The Rams have elevated Rypien to their active roster ahead of Sunday's season-opening game in Seattle.

    No surprise here, as Stetson Bennett (shoulder) has been ruled out and could be heading to injured reserve. As a result, Rypien is the No. 2 option under center behind Matthew Stafford for the immediate future. The 27-year-old Rypien suited up for eight games across three seasons with the Broncos' organization prior to landing with the Rams. He managed to tally 80 completions on 130 attempts for 778 yards, four touchdowns and eight interceptions during that time.

  • Brett Rypien: Joins Rams' practice squad

    Rypien signed with the Rams' practice squad Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Rypien lost the backup quarterback battle to Stetson Bennett, but he'll remain in the Rams' organization. Matthew Stafford is healthy entering 2023 after having his 2022 campaign cut short by neck surgery, but Rypien could have a path to playing time if Stafford gets hurt again considering Bennett is unproven at the NFL level.

  • Brett Rypien: Let go by LAR

    The Rams cut Rypien on Tuesday.

    Rypien was competing with rookie Stetson Bennett for the No. 2 gig behind Matthew Stafford, and while neither backup shined during the preseason, the Rams are opting to go with the Georgia product. Rypien has appeared in eight career games (all with Denver), but he's struggled with turnovers when given a chance, posting a 4:8 TD:INT in his career.

  • Rams' Brett Rypien: Underwhelms in backup duty

    Rypien completed seven of 13 passes for 67 yards and rushed once for two yards during Saturday's 41-0 preseason loss to the Broncos.

    While Rypien's anemic stats under center in his final preseason action would normally be enough to call into question his security as Matthew Stafford's primary backup, Stetson Bennett had a significantly worse night, going four of nine for just 14 yards and two interceptions in his three drives. The Rams, who wanted to address their backup quarterback situation after last year's struggles with Stafford out, are arguably worse at the position than last year. While the Rams may feel inclined to keep both players on the roster initially, a dip into the free-agent quarterback market may be on the horizon after mostly uninspiring play in the preseason from Rypien and Bennett.

  • Rams' Brett Rypien: Four completions in limited action

    Rypien completed all four of his passes for 14 yards during Saturday's 34-17 preseason loss to the Raiders.

    Rypien only entered the game for the final two drives and mostly handed the ball off to Zach Evans. Stetson Bennett played the majority of the game but had a much shakier performance than his previous game against the Chargers, going 15-for-24 for 142 yards and an interception. Bennett's extended play may be less a signal that he's gained an edge on Rypien for the opportunity to be Matthew Stafford's primary backup, and more likely that the Rams are trying to give the rookie extra reps and are planning on keeping both quarterbacks on the roster after last year's rotating door of ineffective backups.

  • Rams' Brett Rypien: Quiet night in Rams debut

    Rypien completed three of six passes for 11 yards and rushed once for six yards during Saturday's 34-17 preseason loss to the Chargers.

    It was a forgettable day for Rypien, as he ate a sack to end the first Rams' drive of the day, then overthrew Puka Nacua and had two more incompletions to finish the game with three punts on three possessions. Stetson Bennett shook off some jitters in relief to put up a solid day at the helm, completing 17 of 29 passes for 191 yards and a touchdown, and while the Rams would prefer the veteran Rypien as the backup for Matthew Stafford after the rotating door of ineffective backup quarterbacks last season, the job is likely closer to a toss-up after one preseason game.

  • Rams' Brett Rypien: Heading to Los Angeles

    Rypien and the Rams agreed to terms on a one-year deal Wednesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Rypien is coming off a 2022 season with Denver in which he appeared in four games and completed 53 of 88 pass attempts for 483 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. In Los Angeles, the 26-year-old should have the opportunity to compete with rookie fourth-round pick Stetson Bennett for the backup role behind starter Matthew Stafford.

  • Brett Rypien: Non-tendered by Broncos

    Rypien will become an unrestricted free agent after the Broncos informed him that he will not be tendered, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

    Instead of potentially having to pay Rypien a $2.627 million dollar tender to make him a restricted free agent, Denver will let the quarterback hit the open market. The 26-year-old has operated as the second or third option at QB for Denver the past three seasons, and regardless of where he ends up, he'll almost certainly be in a reserve position heading into the 2023 campaign.
