    Talking Little Signed

    The St. Louis Rams re-signed free agent defensive end Leonard Little to a five-year deal worth a reported $17.5 million,

    Little the most attractive of the available free agent defensive ends will also receive a $5 million signing bonus.

    The Rams also grabbed free agent linebacker Jamie Duncan from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Free agent linebacker London Fletcher, however, will not be re-signed by the Rams.

    In 2001, Little recorded 14.5 sacks good for third-best in the NFL for the NFC champions.

    Thumbs up Phew...

    :me wipes forehead

    I'm glad Little and his agent finally agreed on a contract, as he was acting greedy before that. So much for him going to the Cardinals. I'm sure Mr. Blond will be happy.

    Remember how we went into this past season concerned about our defensive line and how it was our supposed "weakness"?

    Guess those questions are answered.

    Good job by the front office. Glad Leonard is staying.

    That's a pretty good contract and I think it definitely means that Az is going elsewhere. Whether Carter, Green or whoever, the third WR will be brought in for less than Hakim cost last year.

    Bleeding LSU purple and gold, I'd love to see the Rams be able to draft Josh Reed but I'm sure he'll be off the board by the time we draft in the first round.

    What I don't understand is that the terms of the contract he agreed upon looks exactly like the one he turned down Friday.




    Oh well, glad your back LL.

    I know! Maybe they misread it at first, thought it said $7.5 million or something, then came to their senses.

    From one end to another...

    TX, aren't Pickett and Lewis DT's?
    Oh, I see! You're being funny.

    So far we have Wistrom, Little, and... Sean Moran. Who else? Ahanotu not coming back? *Gulp!*

    Seriously, I've lost track of the happenings with our D-Ends. There's still plenty of time and it's great now that No. 91 has been secured for a while, but as you pointed, how is the Rams depth there?

    Help. :shield:

    Surprised, but a pleasant one

    That's about it as far as defensive ends go, unless they're still planning to move Damione Lewis. Our defensive tackle rotation is very solid with Lewis, Jeff Zgonina, Brian Young (a favorite of mine), Tyoka Jackson, and Ryan Pickett. Our defensive line has a lot of depth.

    GLover

    I heard somewhere that La'roi Glover wants to come here. Woulden't it be amazing if we could get him for less money. That would be a great DT. We would have an AMAZING pass rush. Make that unstoppable. Then Duncan can drop back in coverage. I am so excited words can't describe it. Look at our starting DT (if we get Glover)

    DE-Wistrom
    DT-Glover
    DT-Lewis
    DE-Little

    OLB-Polley
    MLB-Duncan
    OLB-Davis

    CB-Williams
    CB-Bly

    SS-Archuleta
    FS-Herring

    If we don't ger GLover just put Pickett in. Either way we will be number one Defense in the NFC again!!!!! GO RAMS!!!!!!!!!!!
    THE WORLDS GREATEST- ST. LOUIS RAMS
