    Report: Potential Salary Cuts

    Blurb on CBS Sports from Jason La Canfora going through each team's potential cuts, here is the spot on the St. Louis Rams. Mostly everyone we expected, but an interesting bit on Bradford that seemingly comes out of nowhere. It doesn't mention in the article where he is getting his information, if from anywhere at all. Take it for what it's worth.

    St. Louis Rams: CB Cortland Finnegan
    There is no way a team still trying to build and with almost no cap room will pay Finnegan $6M, with a $10M cap hit, especially at the end of his career. If designated a post-June 1 cut, the Rams save $9M in cap space (they only have about $2M right now), and cutting veteran guard Harvey Dahl frees up $4M more, and another $4.5M with oft-injured center Scott Wells. Oh, and with $27M owed to him over the next two years, the Rams have absolutely no intention of extending QB Sam Bradford -- contrary to a midseason NFL report -- but must decide if they still want him around since he has already received all of his guaranteed money.

    Re: Report: Potential Salary Cuts

    so we can save 18.5 mil cutting Finn, Dahl, and Wells....

    Do it !!!

    As far as Sam, its a big season for him.....so I really don't think any deal(s)/extensions will be made until after this season....

    I think I need to know more about Sam's contract and dates when extension must be exercised and costs.,

    anyone help with all Sam's details...

    and PS -- Sam better be 1000% ready this year, since next year is shaping up to be an elite QB draft

    Re: Report: Potential Salary Cuts

    Though he's probably right on a couple of these, La Canfora is notorious for making "reports" that cite no sources whatsoever, and his hit/miss ratio is pretty poor.

    LOL! Right on cue!

    La Canfora has changed his own report to the following:

    . A source says the Rams are open to an extension for QB Sam Bradford, who is due $27M over the next two years. A longer deal would still be a surprise to many, because adding guaranteed money beyond the current deal would make it cumbersome for the team to part with Bradford.

    Hah. I thought it was a very bold and strange report, considering it didn't cite anything and seemed to be contrary to everything we've heard all off-season.

    Fisher was on Mike and Mike this morning, he reiterated that Sam is the man and that they are open to renegotiating his contract. He also said he's doing very well on his rehab. Sounds like Fisher and Snead are sold, and that's all that matters.
