    Re: Rams Free Agents. Who do you want back?

    Defense is a R1 Priority, which means that we essentially need to bring Curtis back, unless we think McDonald can be No.3. That said, it's looking as if we may be in close range of someone like Ted Ginn Jr's current draft placing, so if we let curtis go and sign a few big defensive guys (Lance Briggs, Dwight Freeney... Dt from Oakland- forget his name, i'll edit later.) he could be a possibility. That's cap room depending.

    Think about it. Holt will be 31 next year, and Bruuuuuce will be 900, so it might be about time. It's crazytalk, I know, with the state of the Defense, but if we can't land an Alan Branch or Quentin Moses, Ginn or ... (damn it.) Wideout from USC, somebody Jarrett. I want to say D'wayne, but i'm not sure. Point being, they could be potential targets.

    I'd like to see, as i said, one of the 2 of our WR's back, Goldberg or Steussie, Carpenter, Kacyvenski, Turk ad Davis.

    Re: Rams Free Agents. Who do you want back?

    Carpenter, Dwaine S UFA NO

    Chillar, Brandon LB RFA Yes, on the cheap.

    Curtis, Kevin WR UFA Yes, with Bruces age he is valuable.

    Davis, Stephen RB UFA Yes, if he wants to stay for a reasonable amount.

    Fisher, Tony RB UFA Yes, he is cheap and dependable

    Fisher, Travis CB UFA No, we have CB depth without him and someone will offer him money.

    Fisk, Jason DT UFA No, he has done little to nothing this year.

    Goldberg, Adam OG RFA Yes, cheap depth.

    Green, Brandon DE RFA Yes, he is developing nicely.

    Harris, Kay-Jay RB RFA No, there is no point.

    Kacyvenski, Isaiah LB UFA No, he has done nothing and is injured.

    McDonald, Shaun WR UFA Yes, decent returner.

    Smith, Paul FB UFA No, the fullback is not used enough.

    Smith, Raonall LB UFA Yes, good enough on ST.

    Steussie, Todd OG UFA Yes, still is decent depth.

    Turk, Matt P UFA Yes, who cares it is a punter.

    Turner, Larry C RFA No, he can't get on the field.

    Walker, Aaron TE RFA Yes, good blocker.

    I want Steussie back. He's a good backup.

    Re: Rams Free Agents. Who do you want back?

    Of the listed players, these would be the ones I would resign if possible:

    Chillar, Brandon LB RFA
    Curtis, Kevin WR UFA
    Davis, Stephen RB UFA
    Green, Brandon DE RFA
    Harris, Kay-Jay RB RFA
    Kacyvenski, Isaiah LB UFA
    Steussie, Todd OG UFA
    Turk, Matt P UFA

    Chillar, Davis, Green, and Steussie are very good depth players, IMO. I like what Harris and Kacyvenski bring to the table on special teams. And Turk has been fairly good punting the ball. The only one that I think would command much attention in the free agent market would be Curtis. Everyone else, I doubt we'd have much problems keeping them if we wanted.

    As much as I don't like it, I agree that Ginn could be a potential target depending on how free agency pans out and whether or not we win our last game and drop further in the draft order. I imagine the Rams will like what he brings to the table in terms of being a return specialist, which is a role he could be used in immediately while he learns the fundamentals and perfects his route running under the mentorship of Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce.

    That being said, with as many defensive playmakers that are in this draft, I think we'd be missing a huge opportunity to improve our biggest weakness by addressing offense in the first round. We're currently slotted to pick 11th overall. IMO that's still slightly too early for Ginn, but closing in on the spot where I'd look at someone like Patrick Willis and still in contention for one of the two top safeties in this class (Landry or Nelson).

    Re: Rams Free Agents. Who do you want back?

    Carpenter, Dwaine S UFA - Fringe player. Minimal contract.
    Chillar, Brandon LB RFA - If he wants starters money, no. Need to upgrade.
    Curtis, Kevin WR UFA - A tough choice, but probably need to let him go. Better to spend offensive dollars on extending Bulger's contract.
    Davis, Stephen RB UFA - Bring him back. Good influence on Jackson and a nice backup.
    Fisher, Tony RB UFA - Let him go.
    Fisher, Travis CB UFA - Unless the market is so weak that he can be signed on the cheap, let him go.
    Fisk, Jason DT UFA - Let him go.
    Goldberg, Adam OG RFA - Decent depth. Bring him back.
    Green, Brandon DE RFA - Keep him.
    Harris, Kay-Jay RB RFA - Let him go.
    Kacyvenski, Isaiah LB UFA - Keep him.
    McDonald, Shaun WR UFA - Offer minimal contract. If outbid, let him go.
    Smith, Paul FB UFA - Keep him.
    Smith, Raonall LB UFA - Keep him if price is low.
    Steussie, Todd OG UFA - Keep him.
    Turk, Matt P UFA - Keep him.
    Turner, Larry C RFA - Let him go.
    Walker, Aaron TE RFA - Keep him.
