    Sounds good.

    If we add another guy (Cadillac Williams, Jerome Harrison), I'll feel pretty good about the RB depth.

    I hope so. I'd like to not have to rely on Darby anymore.

    Darby isn't even on the roster is he? Whether we sign another back or not(I think we will) Darby will likely not be back. toston or Washington will take his spot.

    Re: Rams sign Jerious Norwood to one year deal

    The deals keep coming: Norwood to Rams
    August, 2, 2011

    By Mike Sando

    After the NFC West welcomed Zach Miller to Seattle and waved goodbye to Aubrayo Franklin, let's rise to welcome the St. Louis Rams' new No. 2 running back.

    Jerious Norwood, formerly of the Atlanta Falcons, comes aboard to give the Rams a speed element behind Steven Jackson.

    Norwood has had injury issues, missing all but two games last season. If he goes into the season as the No. 2 runner, the Rams are essentially saying they think Jackson will hold up physically for a full season. Norwood would then project as a change-of-pace runner with big-play potential. It's tougher to envision him carrying a full workload game after game.

    Ya that's right he's a FA now... No bad feelings toward him just would like a productive back behind Steven.

    Well, there's one announcement, I wonder if there will be another?

    If Norwood stays healthy, he'll be a nice situational option, but I don't think he could be a guy that carries the full laod should jackson go down. Hopefully we add Williams.

    Re: Rams sign Jerious Norwood to one year deal

    I like this signing, but I would also like to see one more back brought in. I'd prefer harrison over cadillac, but I wouldn't complain about either one. Is Kevin Smith out there?

    They still have us up as suitors for Osi and Asante without having any words on why we are suitors. I kind of think they do this because we get alot of our guys from eagles and giants. Also because spags history there. So i don't see either of these happening. Asante isn't a big physical corner likes spags loves so he doesnt really fit and who wants to pay that for a guy who doesn't really fit what we do. Osi wants too much money for us the giants want too much for him, and we already have a big enough rotation IMHO.

    Re: Rams sign Jerious Norwood to one year deal

    Rams signed RB Jerious Norwood to a one-year contract.

    The Rams were on the prowl for a scatback to play behind Steven Jackson, initially targeting Darren Sproles and Reggie Bush. Those moves didn't happen, so they'll settle for a 28-year-old coming off a torn right ACL who's likely willing to play for the league minimum. The brittle Norwood just isn't an option to play many snaps if S-Jax goes down. The Falcons' coaches never trusted him on passing downs, and Norwood hasn't been the same player since busting out of the gates for a 6.17 YPC average in his first two seasons.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I like his game. But, with his injuries we definitely need someone like Snelling or Cadillac to bear the load behind S-Jax. They would bring a lot to the table. I'd be pretty happy if that all came together.

    The St. Louis Rams signed free-agent RB Jerious Norwood (Falcons) Tuesday, Aug. 2. He took a physical with the team Monday, Aug. 1, and passed.

    I loved him like 2 years ago, now a little shaky, but Norwood HAS TO be better in a dimished form than a Darby so it is a upgrade.
