    Rams officially sign OLB Rocky McIntosh

    Per rotoworld

    Rams signed LB Rocky McIntosh, formerly of the Redskins.
    McIntosh had previously visited the Vikings and Dolphins in addition to the 'Skins. Coming off 65 tackles and a sack last season after losing his starting job mid-way through, McIntosh will likely compete with Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Mario Haggan for snaps at outside linebacker.
    I'm sure this signing will be well received. I personally am very happy and McIntosh should start by week 1 over Haggan.


    Here's a pic of the newest Ram, who also happens to be fairly serious about paintball haha.

    Glad to see he will back in a 4-3, especially our 4-3.

    I love Miami in college football. Always love calling out "the U' before the players do when players introduce themselves on nbc sunday. I am also glad we have one on the Rams atlast! "The UUUU"

    I think he will definitely be another starter along with Dunbar and JL. Good to see also increase the competition in the Linebacker corps, that will make everyone in that crew better.

    I wonder why he managed to get out of Miami and Minny w/o a contract?

    Im more than happy with this signing, was a good player in the 43 before the scheme switch and got lost in the shuffle. Hopefully with a return to the 43 will see him claim a starting spot oppposite Dun-Bar with Haggan being a situational pass rusher.

    I wonder why he managed to get out of Miami and Minny w/o a contract?
    Hopefully not because of his pay but couldnt agree to terms.

    I love FA pickups like this during OTA's. Gives the veteran pickup all Training Camp to prove their worth. If they've still got it, you just improved your 1st & or 2nd string. If they don't, you lost nothing, had a decent camp body and whichever rookie player that beat him for the job gains confidence.

    It's those pickups during preseason that force you to drop a rookie with upside for a vet that may not still have the mojo required that are more risky. Leber was like that. Rams didn't pick him up until August, after bulk of training camp, and had to make room for him. wasted space turns out.

    Well - just guessing, but maybe, just maybe, MN and MI don't have the talent evaluators the Rams do, or the experience and depth from the Head Coach on down, or he saw a better opportunity with St. Louis, or Shanahan told him to play for Fisher, or he doesn't like snow or the ocean, or he loves St. Louie style ribs, or whatever.

    Just be glad. We'll win 6 - 8 games this year, and start to look like a team that has a clue, and is heading in the right direction. Enjoy the ride.

    (Plus I hear he really wants to hang around with Jenkins ).

    Could be. Those two franchises haven't shown anything special lately in that category.
    or the experience and depth from the Head Coach on down
    That's certainly true.
    he saw a better opportunity with St. Louis
    Possible, but that means he assumed an offer from St. Louis was coming.
    Shanahan told him to play for Fisher
    They're certainly buddies. And if McIntosh wanted to move from 3-4 to 4-3, maybe The Shan nudged him that way.
    he doesn't like snow or the ocean
    Baloney! Who doesn't love the snow or ocean? All that's left is the desert, and what kind of goober would choose to live in the des..........er, well, I'm sure Vegas is beautiful, though.
    he loves St. Louie style ribs
    Umm, they are good.
    Just be glad.
    I am.

    Sweet Desi Arnez!!! That's it! Cut that sinner now!

    I'm guessing he wanted to play for Jeff Fisher.

    Well, his first two years in the league were with Gregg Williams.

    Who needs snow or the ocean when you can bask in perfect 110 degree weather?
    So what if all the west facing businesses have their door handles taped. What's wrong with wearing gloves all summer so you can open your your car's door or grab your steering wheel? Plus you can ride your motorcycle allyear, even though most of the time it's like pointing a hair dryer in your face and turning it on high.

    Actually, Hub, now that I think about it, you have a point. (But it's a DRY heat....)

    Never thought about that .. Now Gregg can reward him with impunity since he's out of football.

    Seroius. Now, it's not like it's every day, but it happens, and you become aware of it, (and careful).
    Inside your car can hit 120-130 degrees, if you don't use shades and vent it.
    You don't walk aroud the pool barefoot either.
    That said, I HATE humidity, and have sampled St. Louis in September. I'm cool here - pun intended.

    Vegas,

    I've got a dumb question for you, Why do the west facing businesses have their door handles taped?

    I'm sure there is a logical - if not obvious answer - but I'm drawing a blank right now.....


    WHAT SAY YE?
