  • Word on the Twitter is that the Rams may give Carolina LB Thomas Davis a call if he's released, due to his familiarity with the Rams' defensive system.

    They've also talked with Saints LB Scott Shanle and may set up a visit with him.

      • So happy with that move, one of the more underrated players in the NFL and fills a massive need.

        Great start to FA period imo.

          I agree. However with the amount of money we threw at him I'd say he wasn't underrated by any means!

          Where do we go next? I'd like to see us address the outside 'backer positions.

          Barry Cofield signed with Washington so he's out as a DT upgrade option.

          • Nice little article on Mikell and the Rams.

            I wouldn't mind us doing that, I've seen Scott Shanle mentioned, and if that's the standard we're looking at, then I'd rather we not bother and just give Vobora an extended run in the side. :)

              Agree. I'm looking at us getting the 'Skins' Rocky McIntosh for OLB. While I would really like to make a play for Carolina's James Anderson somehow methinks he is gonna be too expensive....

              • Just read on Rotoworld.com that the Rams are showing serious interest in Stewart Bradley. Injuries aside, that would be a terrific signing for us. Bradley would be an instant upgrade and really give us two superb linebackers.

                Other linebackers the Rams have been linked to: Shanle, Zac Diles, and Ben Leber.

                I also read that the Rams have enter the Sidney Rice discussion. Not sure if this is true or if it's just Rice's agent drumming up a market, but he would be a huge impact for us out wide.

                • I don't consider Shanle or Diles upgrades in anyway at all, Leber is slightly better. Not sure I'd be over the moon with any of them, Bradley offers some upside I guess, but I'm not that big a fan of his.

                  The Rice rumour is certainly picking up, wouldn't mind it to happen at all.

                  Also seen talk that we're interested in Brandon Mebane, would definitely take him in a heart beat, would improve our front 4 even more.

                  • Bradley of three years ago would be a great sign but after that injury he did not look right out on the field last year when healthy for the most part, when he looked completely lost in coverage in the few games I saw. I don't know about his viability as an outside linebacker.

                    Mebane would be a very nice sign. I would have no problem offering a deal in the ballpark of Barry Cofield's (6yr/36mil i believe) if we still have the money. Not only would it drastically upgrade the Rams 3-tech talentwise over guys like Gibson and Cudjo, but it almost completely trashes the Seahawks d-line.

                      Agree and agree. Besides isn't Bradley more of an inside type? We've already got JL and we need a legit, athletic LB to play either the Will or Sam spot.

                      Really wishin' that we would have selected Steven Paea instead of Kendricks in round 2 last April. You can see how tough it is to sign high quality D tackles when teams are all wanting them and bid the price up and up.

                      Also, really hoping the Rams look to sign a guard like Davin Joseph or Harvey Dahl so we don't have to suffer watching Adam Goldman try to run block this next year.

                      • It would seem to me Diles or Leber would be upgrades over whatever the Rams currently have at WLB (Chamberlain?). Shanle, I'm not crazy about but he'd be solid enough. If Bradley can stay healthy, he'd be a great addition at SLB. But the health does worry me a bit.

                        The Rams were apparently lukewarm on Cofield, but are interested in Mebane. Hopefully they can make that happen. Would have been nice to get Sidney Rice; him going to a division rival is a double whammy, but the Seahawks' QB situation doesn't scare me at all.

                        Still waiting to hear any real news on the RB front...

                          Agreed, although if their rookies pan out, whomever it is throwing the ball could have an awful long time to do so. They seem intent on building a very decent O line.

                          Snelling and Harrison are apparently the RB's we're being linked to, would probably take Snelling as first choice from them. Still want us to make a serious play for Mebane though, seen some talk that it's between Seattle and Denver now. Also seen us mentioned with Malcom Floyd, I'm not that bothered if we do chase a "deep threat", but contract depending, I would be OK with it.

                          Surely we're going to get one former Giant? I know Spags worked with Mikell in Philly but it's become a bit of a tradition to raid their freebies.

                          • I read this morning that STL is the favorites to land Darren Sproles.

                              To clarify, I believe that was based on a tweet from South Florida Sentinel writer Omar Kelly...

                              • How quickly things change; the Rams are apparently no longer in the running for Sproles, according to the San Diego Union Tribune...

                                New Orleans, Philadelphia and, yes, Chargers in running for Sproles. I'm told that's the final 3. Decision soon.
