Spags on Draft: “It’s a tough business in a lot of ways.”
By Jim Thomas

St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo knew the topic of the day was linebacker Chris Draft, who was released Thursday in a surprise move. So before the first question came from the media after Thursday’s practice, Spagnuolo addressed Draft’s departure.
“None of these moves are easy,” Spagnuolo said. “It’s a tough business in a lot of ways. We’ve got a lot of respect and appreciation for Chris Draft and what he did both on and off the field here. Every decision that is made here is a team decision. So we’re going forward, but we do wish Chris a lot of luck.”
So how much of the decision was business; and how much was football related?
“I’m not going there,” Spagnuolo said, tersely. ”We made the decision. Again, I’ll repeat: We love Chris and wish him a lot of luck. But we made a decision which we thought was in the best interests of the team.”
Spagnuolo didn’t exactly throw out a lifeline, either, for Draft when asked about the possibility of re-signing him next week.
“We’re just worried about Seattle right now,” Spagnuolo said. “We’re focused on this week. We’ll worry about next week, next week.”
