    Barron Negotiations Underway + more Barron

    Rams | Barron Negotiations Underway
    Sat, 9 Jul 2005 21:42:12 -0700

    Thomas Grant Jr., of the Times and Democrat, reports the St. Louis Rams have started negotiations with agent Roosevelt Barnes of Maximum Sports Management about a contract for Rams' rookie OT Alex Barron. The deal is expected to be a lucrative contract for the second offensive lineman taken in this year's NFL draft. For now, Barron's focus is mastering the Rams' blocking schemes while he waits for a deal to get done.

    Rams | Barron Trying to Adjust to the NFL
    Sat, 9 Jul 2005 21:30:20 -0700

    Thomas Grant Jr., of the Times and Democrat, reports St. Louis Rams rookie OT Alex Barron is trying to adjust to his role as an NFL player. The players are much quicker, stronger and, in some cases, craftier than ever and the coaches see things through a "win now" mentality. "It's been like going back to school," said Barron in a telephone interview with Grant prior to a Friday, July 8, workout. "All the players are reading and studying, but on a whole different level and there's a little bit more urgency involved." Barron has struggled with his new position, right tackle. He was named the starter earlier in the offseason by Rams' head coach Mike Martz, but at a recent minicamp Barron was demoted to No. 2. "I'm a rookie like all the other rookies," Barron said. "The fact I had to change positions had some weight on it. It's just part of the transition that I've got to try to make and then I'll be ready to see what's going on." Making the mental adjustment to the NFL has been just as challenging for Barron as the physical side.

    Have any of the 1st rounders signed yet? I don't know of any. Wouldn't it be nice to have the quickest overall draft pick signing (Carter) AND the quickest 1st round signing (Barron)?

    None of the first rounders have signed yet. usually doesnt happen until much closer to camp, when the teams figure out how much they have left under their rookie cap amounts after signing the other guys. the first rounders kind of slot in based on the money the guys around them get.

    ramming speed to all

    I wouldn't look for anymore signings until at least a week before camp.

    It amazes me how much press he's getting, especially some moron reporting that he's already been "demoted" after a week of mini-camp.

    Talk about your slow newsdays...


    ...and if I'm not mistaken, Pace not only didn't set the world on fire his first year, but actually played rather badly, and HE didn't have to switch positions. :tut

    Sieler can I get more cowbell please? I gotta have more cowbell.

    Barron has to adjust like every other rookie, problem is Martz shouldnt have handed the guy the starting nod right off the bat. Make the man work for it, that's what people are jumping on. They seen he was announced 1st string and then demoted and all of the sudden it's a big thing. ATTENTION MEDIA HES A ROOKIE! Every rookie struggles in some way or another. Barron will be fine and if hes not it just goes to show you the draft is one big crap shoot.

    Re: Barron Negotiations Underway + more Barron

    I was glad he make him the starter then hit the demote button. It might just make him a far better player and quicker. He wont hav e that normal "Ideserve to start attitude" hanging around him same as a lot of round 1 draft picks do.

    And if that the biggest "mistake" Martz makes this year, its going to be a bloody good year hehee
