    With the latest news on chavous getting cut, where will we go from here, in terms of signing a new SS

    Start Todd Johnson.

    Sign James Butler (He has experience, knows spags and comes from a good defensive team).

    Pick up
    Patty Chung or another SS in the draft.

    Not sure that the answer is stated... I'm thinking Spags might look to aquire someone unheard of and turn him stud... we are still tight for cash and that would be a big way to solve the problem.

    I think Michael Hamlin, Sean Smith or Chip Vaughn would be pretty good picks on draft day.

    Though I voted for Butler, I'd love to see Michael Hamlin, out of Clemson in horns.

    I'd like to see them go after Leonhard of the Ravens. He and Reed made a very good tandem and I could see him doing the same with OJ.

    I hope we draft Chung in the 2nd round. He's the hardest hitting safety in the draft.

    I have to say Pat Chung or another SS we draft because in the end Butler is going to cost too much, and Todd Johnson is best suited for Special teams.

    Everyone said Brian Leonard could play anything when Rams drafted him 2nd round. I say he starts at safety in '09.

    We should draft the best available SS in the second round of the draft. Sadly, we'll try to maximise Johnson's output. He's a good player but he's no more than first back-up.

    Leonard has the tools, but alas...
    Let the hype begin.

    I also think Butler will come at a high price, lets get younger and see what we can do in the draft.

    When Brian Leonard becomes one of the biggest stories of the playoffs it will probably be said it started as an idea by fanatics on a KKK website.
    Let the hype begin.

    The correct answer to the question is "someone who is not currently on the rams roster." Anything else is 100% pure speculation, which isnt a bad thing, its just guessing however. We have WAY too many pressing needs to focus in on SS in the second round. We may go in that direction, but its certainly not essential and it has nothing to do with cutting chavous, who has effectively been past a starting level nfl player for 2 if not 3 years.

    ramming speed to all

    I want to see a young kid in here. Who? I don't know too much about the safety class.
