    Gus Frerotte expected on the field for start of St. Louis Rams minicamp

    By Jim Thomas
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch


    It has taken a while, much longer than expected, but the Rams were closing in on a free-agent deal Wednesday night that would bring Gus Frerotte back to St. Louis as the backup quarterback behind Marc Bulger.

    League sources told the Post-Dispatch that Frerotte was expected to be on the practice field Thursday when the Rams begin a three-day minicamp _ their first under new head coach Steve Spagnuolo.

    Frerotte spent the 2006 and 07 seasons backing up Bulger in St. Louis, but was cut in favor of Trent Green last offseason and signed with Minnesota. He started 11 games for the Vikings.

    Wow....Gus may be back. I wonder if he will play better under the new coaching staff.

    Let's hope he doesn't fumble in the last seconds of a game again.

    I hope he doesn't play at all. That means Bulger is having a heck of a season.

    As usual, tx hits the nail on the head. This is insurance, nothing more and nothing less. You hope you never have to file a claim. I have no problem at all with Gus.

    Meanwhile, I hope we pick a developmental qb in the later rounds.

    Ramming speed to all

    Gus did ok job with Vikes pct. 59.1
    Ben Roethlisberger 59.9 so as a backup should be able to hold up the fort if Bulger goes down and we have a decent line.

    Only concern is INT's, too many!

    I don't like it one bit. BEEN THERE DONE THAT!

    There has to better options out there for an "insurance" QB.

    But again, rather than start a slammimng session on Spags I'm going to sit back and wait to see what kind of team we put on the field for 2009.

    He's a backup its not like were asking him to start. Whats with the hate. I really don't think we will draft a developmental guy this year and we go with other bigger holes. If bulger craps the bed I think we will go QB first round next year allowing Spags and Devaney to pick their own Franchise QB.

    I totally agree... This is not the year to go fishing for a QB in the draft. Next years class is stronger and we should have a decent pick...Can you say Bradford?...
