Rams’ All-Time Passing Leaders (Yardage)
The Rams began play in Cleveland, Ohio in 1937 and moved to Los Angeles in 1946, then moved to St. Louis in 1995. And with such a long history, there have bound to be some good quarterbacks on the team. Here is a list of the Rams' all-time Top 10 in passing yards.
Jim Everett (23,758)-Jim Everett played for the Los Angeles Rams from 1986 to 1993 and to some is best remembered for being clocked by sports talk show host Jim Rome. But he really was a great quarterback on some very talented Rams' teams. Everett leads the franchise all-time with 23,758 passing yards. Everett made the Pro Bowl in 1990, but his best season was the year before that, 1989, when he had a career high in passing yards (4310) with 29 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.
Roman Gabriel (22,223)-Roman Gabriel played for the Rams from 1962 to 1972 and had a few Pro Bowl seasons there before moving over the Eagles and having great success there as well.
