The Rams want to keep Case Keenum on the roster.

General manager Les Snead echoed coach Jeff Fisher’s sentiments that Keenum would enter the season as the starter for the Rams who will begin playing in Los Angeles in 2016.

Asked by the Los Angeles Times about retaining Keenum, Snead responded “That is a goal. We’re not going to let him go somewhere else.”

Keenum may begin as the quarterback but the Rams figure to look hard at other options though the draft. Nick Foles also still remains on the roster.

In 2015, Keenum played in six games last year completing 60.8% of his passes while compiling a 4:1 TD/Int ratio.

Snead downplayed the contract of Foles which is reported to be between $12-13 million.

“His contract is not exactly that. I don’t want to get into the exact numbers, but it’s about half of that. There’s a lot of things that get written about contracts. The answer from a salary standpoint is, yes, he’s easily keepable.”
