    If they do release him, it will be due to his roster bonus. I really feel like they'll try and resign him; the only thing that bothers me is getting in a bidding war with the niners, which I doubt our front office will do. You know if he is released Martz will be wetting himself for a chance to get him in SF...

    Re: Isaac Bruce?

    I can't believe how we treat this man. He's been nothing but an ascet for this team and time and time again he is treated like garbage. I don't care about the roster bonus, if anything he deserves it. It would be nice to hear his side of the story like perhaps he's in agreement to him being cut and his contract being renegotiated but I hate the information of him just being released, that drives me nuts. I want to know where Bruce stands on this, and I cannot and will not bear seeing him go to a different team. My heart will honestly be broken if I ever see this man in any other uniform other than a Ram's uniform. Please, just let this either be a renegotiation that HE is ok with or just let it be false news.

    Didn't we release Aeneas Williams a few years ago and then re-sign him so we didn't have to re do the contract?
    Maybe the same thing with Bruce?

    But I KNOW Martz will go after him. I don't know if he'd actually do it, Bruce does hate the ***** as much as most of us.
    But he also loves the game of football...

    :bash: AAAARGH!

    Here's hoping that our new friends Devaney and Saunders (and their buddy Coach Linehan) will ... NOT let it happen!!!

    Allow / ask / force / keep Isaac Bruce to retire as a Ram in a year or two. Make it happen! :r

    Re: Isaac Bruce?

    Yeah keenum, we also released bruce and did the same thing 2 years ago. That was with martz at the helm I believe wasn't it? Im not positive but I think it was, so maybe he wasn't attracted to anywhere else. But now with martz on another team he very well might go there. And like the rest of us, im sure bruce loves the sound of cashing in.

    Look, my point is, if jerry rice can go and sign with other teams, why wouldent bruce? Its not gonna be the end of the world if he leaves, don't get me wrong, id be greatly dissapointed if he does, and I believe he has a lot of time left. But with our front office anything can be messed up, just lets hope they get one thing right and keep him.

    Although I still have faith in drew bennet. And I believe he ca thrive as a number 2 and not as a slot. But I guess we will just have to wait and see...

    Things like this happen all the time. I think we can pull off something similar. Guys get released to avoid paying them big time and then get brought back later for less money. Vets come back because they have a connection to the team and thats where they want to stay even if it take less cash. Lets just hope Bruce gives us a home town discount.

    Re: Isaac Bruce?

    As there are no sources other than hearsay right now, I'm treating this as untruth.

    However, here's my pre-prepared response if hearsay is actually reality.

    I feel gutted. This is the lone LA Ram, our most touted, most respected future hall of fame player and this team isn't even committed to re-working his contract? Physically, he doesn't play as old as he is. There is no better route runner in football, and for a team falling apart at the seams, veteran leadership is essential. God knows Bruce provided that.

    I do wonder how Al Saunders feels...

    Re: Isaac Bruce?

    Before people get down on the organization for how they're treating Ike, keep in mind that he probably knew that this was going to happen when he signed that contract. At this stage of his career, Ike will basically always be playing on 1 or 2 year contracts no matter what team he is with next year or the year after. The Rams aren't doing anything that any team wouldn't do here. If they did, you should all get ticked then because it means they really are incompetent at managing the cap.

    All that said, I expect we'll sign him to a 1-2 year contract like we did last time: Saunders will want him, we don't want to drop any money on a FA wideout because it isn't a good class and we have greater needs, and the organization needs good PR.

    YA , it's what they call . BUSINESS , look at what PERCELLSis doing in miami .he is just cuttinfg older vet's to make room for the wave of rookies coming in .

    when you get too the leaky walls of the basement , you have to just tear it up and lay a new foundation . so the dolphins started from the very top , and are peelinfg off all the dead wood .

    the rams , no matter how much they TRY too change , never will until THE OWNERS start to cut the dead wood ( ZYGMUNT and SHAW) and start a rebuild .

    just moving some staffers and some trivial hiring and firing , and letting veterans go , isn't a makeover or rebuild . it's putting WINNIE THE POOH bandages on a bleeding would .
