    While I'm not a big fan of shopping at the holdout warehouse, I must admit I wouldn't curl my nose at Alan Faneca.

    No thanks to either of them. There holding out for a reason, they want more money and whose to say that we'd be willing to give more than what their current team is offering? The Rams Organization has been known as a cheap organization.

    I voted none of them. For the simple fact we need to get Bulger's new deal done & Jackson will have to be next, until these current Rams are signed we don't need to go shopping for someone else holdout.

    At this point, no. If we get everyone signed that we need to get signed, and we have some money left, then I'd go for Briggs if we could afford him.

    Alan Faneca would take us into the area of being able to possibly have an Elite O-line next year...dont know what it would cost us in the way of money and what else we would have to give up but out of the names given Faneca would be one id like to have most!

    Re: The Potential Holdouts Market: Should the Rams Go Shopping?

    Depends on what the teams want in return. Rams could really use Lance Briggs and Samuel, but then again those 2 players played on teams that flourished because their defenses could get to the QB which allowed them to make plays. Jenkins is fat and out of shape, I wouldnt take a chance on him. Rams have lots of cap space, but that money needs to be set aside for Bulger and Jackson. So who knows.

    Re: The Potential Holdouts Market: Should the Rams Go Shopping?

    i would love to have Briggs one of the top linebackers in the league but before that we have other business to handle like Bulger and Jakcson, but if that is done Briggs gives us another defensive play maker at linebacker and one of the top LB units.

    I guess you could only give Kris Jenkins a "yes" if he decides do stop being fat and signs a weight loss contract, as stated above. Fanenca would be great. But I'm really surprised alot want Briggs, he wouldn't be making so many plays without Chicago's great D and alot of attention from Urlacher and Co. Most if not all of these guys would drive a hard bargin, let's see what happens after we sign bulger, carriker, jackson, etc.

    Re: The Potential Holdouts Market: Should the Rams Go Shopping?

    Lance Briggs: The contract offer that Briggs was reportedly planning on getting from Washington would have got him $7.5 million per year and $20 million in bonus money. I don't think we can afford to pay that much with Spoon and Pisa's contracts on the books.

    Asante Samuel: He's probably looking for a Nate Clements-like deal, so I'd have to say no thanks. Maybe it's just me, but I really didn't notice this guy that much until last year, so I'm not entirely sure I've bought into the hype just yet.

    Kris Jenkins: Discussions on Jenkins are well documented, I would pass unless we can get him for cheap. The weight issue is a big one for me, especially for a guy mentioned in a lot of trade talks and is unhappy about his contract.

    Pete Kendall: Wants a new deal and has been labeled as a "locker room politician." Could be a good mentor for our young linemen after helping Ferguson and Mangold in New York, but strikes me as a bit dramatic.

    Alan Faneca: Alan will probably want Steinbach/Dockery type of money after watching them get huge paydays this spring, but he forgets his 31 years old. The offer would have to be sweet for Pittsburgh to lose him rather than let him play out his contract.


    So my answer is none of them.

    None at this point. I don't think the Panthers would deal Jenkins for what we would consider reasonable value, and I know Briggs isn't coming over without an early pick for the Bears and a huge contract for the man.
