    Good. Don't know why we picked him up in the first place. Having him on the roster made me worried that there were guys worse than him on the squad, and that wouldn't have been a good thing.

    This is not 100% confirmed. Thread will be closed until confirmed. Be patient. I am looking hard. :-)

    Rams release cornerback Rumph
    By Bill Coats
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    08/02/2007

    The first veteran has been pared from the Rams roster at training camp.

    Cornerback Mike Rumph, a fifth-year pro signed in the offseason as a free agent, was released Thursday to create a spot for linebacker Larry Edwards.

    The 6-2, 241-pound Edwards passed a physical exam and was to join the team for tonight’s practice.

    He signed with Buffalo in the spring but was cut last week.

    this is odd. he really must have been lousy to get cut this quickly given the issues in our secondary without brown for four games.

    ramming speed to all

    Re: Rumph Cut

    From what I have been reading, he couldn't cover himself. And when he wasn't actually doing a drill himself or scrimmage <where he normally got beat>, he was jawing and yapping and sluffing and goofing. Qualities I am sure are not greatly desired by this coaching staff.

    By contrast, I've been hearing good things about Walls. Works hard, ussually covering well, makes good effort and is involved.

    Let's face it, Rumph was hanging by a thread since day one with the Rams.

    I think Jerome Carter will see some work at dime back this season; he did a decent job last year.

    I wonder if Brian Leonard dared Rumph to arm tackle him...

    Rumph was another of those players who had potential, but never could learn to perform in the NFL.

    My thoughts exactly. When I saw we released him, I said to myself, "Good, at least our CB's are better than Rumph."

    I find this hilarious only because Channel 2 did a story on him either last night or Wednesday that he was greatly improved and looking really good. )

    Which is why you can't rely on camp reports.
