    The biggest heart on the roster. When he's healthy, there's nobody tougher. Assuming he's all good from the physical standpoint, I love this signing. Hopefully, Terrell, Barron and Incognito pay very close attention to the way TN carries out his duties during camp. They can learn a lot.

    Talk about setting the bar up high. :football:

    Nütten can play the Rams OL schemes even in his sleep. And his endurance ... I hope he is well and strong for one more season, perhaps on a rotation system.

    How can anyone not like Tom Nutten, especially after what he did for us last season. Nutten gave everything he had last year. One of the greatest Rams, no doubt.

    Could this be a because of Adam Timmerman's progress? That would have me a little worried. Although an O-Line of Pace, Tucker, McCollum, Nutten, Saipaia sounds ok to me, I'd worry about injuries to Tucker and the aging Nutten.

    Maybe it's Martz's master plan to move Tucker to RT so we can look at a line of Pace, Nutten, McCollum, Timmerman, Tucker. Hmmmm, that looks fimiliar...

    Kind of player who takes one for the team. My concern is for the younger guys we have been talking about. Not the kind of signing you make and then cut after training camp is over. I have had some high hopes for the OL after the draft. We have some very promising young players but a limited number of positions. This almost makes me think Incognito goes on IR.

    Nice signing; good protection for the O-line. Now if we can get a vet backup DE all we have left is FS to worry about.

    Nutten is as tough as they come. "RAM TOUGH" :clanram:

    Not only tough, but funny, and a great locker room presence. Wonder how his health REALLY is?

    Guess it's better to have two injury prone left guards than one. Let's hope we don't need him.

    Nice touch with the umlaut, Dez.

    You knew, of course, he's half German, and in fact (I believe) was teaching football to German highschoolers when he came back. (Or was that the NFLEL?)

    Vegas, I know he had something to do with NFLE. But, I don't care....I'm just glad he's back. He's one tough SOB, and can be one heck of an inspiration to the young guys.

    This is great news!
