Rams Rookie Pool Revealed
By Howard Balzer
As the Rams begin signing their draft picks, these are the figures they will be working with in the rookie allocation pool.
Complicating matters is a report from the SportsBusiness Journal that first-round pick Robert Quinn fired his agent, Carl Carey. The report says Carey is suing because of interference from other agents.
However, when the NFLPA decertified, the certification of agents was eliminated and potentially with it, rules that had been in place.

Re: Rams Rookie Pool Revealed
I think I like the new rookie scale concerning us with our whole rookie class will range from 4.3 -5 million. Not bad compared to what we been paying for 1st and 2nd picks.
