    scratch them off your list

    The Rams have little shot at a couple of free agents now.

    Franchised so far
    Abraham(DE)--Jets
    Clements(C)--Bills

    Still on the list--(teams have until Thursday to declare)
    Bentley--Saints
    Hope--Steelers
    Hillenmeyer--Bears
    Winborn-Jags
    Witherspoon-Panthers

    Resigned
    Lynch--Broncos
    Wayne--Colts

    Players we need to worry about losing for the Rams
    Arch
    Pickett
    Ivy


    Who else do the Rams need to chase?? We are only 2 weeks from free agency (providing the NFL can work something out with the CBA). :O

    Just to clarify, free agency starts in two weeks unless something changes regarding he cba. there has been talk of an extension to the free agency start date, but that would only occur by mutual consent. if nothing is worked out, the free agency would begin first week in march.

    ramming speed to all

    Do you guy have any further info regarding the fact that the collective bargaining agreement is about to expire and all its impact on this year? I heard something on ESPN radio, but wasn't able to "really" pay attention while working.

    What I've heard so far is that the CBA has two years left on it but that 2007 was written into the agreement as a capless year. About a week ago, reports were coming out that the sides were getting close to an agreement, but all the reports before that were that there were disagreements on revenue sharing--big markets arguing with small markets about the ways it would be distributed and the players just wanting more in general.

    The problem in regards to Free Agency will be if the sides are still hammering out a new agreement when it starts. If they agree to let it stand, there could be some crazy contract numbers in 07. If they work things out, business as usual. If people sign thinking there will be no cap, then a new agreement goes into effect that's what would really screw teams up.
