Rams | Smoker Ready to Ascend to No. 2 QB Spot

Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams QB Jeff Smoker believes he is prepared to compete for the backup quarterback position next season. "I'm going to give it a shot," Smoker said. "I feel like I learned a lot this year. I'm going to keep trying to improve my skills in the offseason. I'm going to work hard at it, because I don't really like to sit on the bench. This is the first time I had to do it, and I don't really enjoy it. So I'm going to work hard at getting that No. 2 spot if I can." Smoker served as the team's third-string quarterback and did not appear in a regular season game in 2004.
