Geez, I hate the offseason. Information gathering in the offseason is like reading the Enquirer or the Star. LOL
Morton just signed a 7 year deal with the Chiefs, $5 million signing bonus included. He was much too rich for the Rams taste, and I'm not sure he is worth that much now as a WR. I would rather take my chances on a deep rookie draft then sign an aging Morton to a 7 year deal.
Who's next then?
That makes sense TX. Morton will probably be ok in K.C. for a couple of average seasons. That's them.
Now for RAMS, no C.C., no more Morton. Who's next? Big J.J. / Jurevicius?
:superram: Get Proehl, the pro!
I agree Jorge!I dont understand why the Rams wont offer Proehl a two year deal.I cant help but think that we will suffer without him.JUST SIGN RICKY!!!:evilram:ST.LOUIS RAMS:THE MOST FRUSTRATING TEAM IN THE NFL!!!
We all know the "maybe-Morton" history by now. And C.C. is no-no. But I found this part of Prisco's article interesting.
Draft pool for receivers deep in '02 and beyond
[March 29, 2002 -- By Pete Prisco
SportsLine.com / NFL writer]
[Quote] "If a team needs a receiver, they're in luck. The 2002 draft is loaded with them. And the 2003 class might be the best in a long, long time.
Maybe that's why a veteran like Cris Carter hasn't signed a deal yet. Carter, in fact, is considering moving to the television booth.
It might be a good idea.'
'...Potential first-round picks are Wisconsin's Lee Evans, USC's Kareem Kelly, Roy Williams and B.J. Johnson of Texas, Andre Johnson of Miami, Brandon Lloyd of Illinois, Washington State's Mike Bush, Darius Watts of Marshall, Tennessee's Kelley Washington, Florida's Taylor Jacobs, and Charlie Rogers of Michigan State. All except Evans, Kelly, Jacobs and Bush are underclassmen.
The following year, such players as Washington's Reggie Williams and LSU's Michael Clayton, two sensational freshmen from a year ago, will be sure first-round picks if they leave school after their junior years.'
'What's interesting is that many receivers expected to be in the 2003 and 2004 drafts are big players. Only Evans is listed at under 6-feet tall. Bush and Reggie Williams are 6-6, Roy Williams is 6-5 and Rogers and Clayton are 6-4.'" [end quote]
:shield: I know bigger is not always better but I believe a team should have one or two good 6'-0" WR in the roster. We are deeply fortunate to have the twin talents of Issac Bruce and Torry Holt, both six footers, as prime players. And I hope the Rams and Ricky --also 6'-0"-- will make it happen again for a couple more seasons. What a trio!
But perhaps a tall receiver like J. Jurevicius (6'-5") will come in handy to crank up the Martz machine to a higher level. And make a bunch of 5-9" safeties run for the ladder.
