    St. Louis Rams sign WR Drew Bennett

    Rams add Bennett to wide receiver core
    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    03/03/2007

    The Rams added some size and production to their wide receiver core when free agent Drew Bennett of Tennessee agreed to terms on a six year contract, Saturday morning.

    Contract terms weren't immediately available.

    Bennett at 6 feet 5 inches, 206 pounds had forty-six catches for 737 yards last season.

    Rams coach Scott Linehan said, the addition of Bennett gives the Rams a potent trio of wide receivers with a Bennett joining Pro Bowlers Tory Holt and Isaac Bruce.

    Linehan said, "We feel great about it he gets down field, and he has sneaky speed for a tall guy."

    With Kevin Curtis visiting Minnesota this weekend Linehan felt the Rams had to move quickly on Bennett or be caught shorthanded at receiver.

    Free agent linebacker-defensive end Tully Banta-Cain of New England received a contract offer from the Rams during his visit but left without signing and apparently will make additional trips.

    RAMS SIGN BENNETT

    A league source tells us that the Rams have agreed to terms with receiver Drew Bennett.

    We're told that the deal will average $4.5 million per year.

    Bennett spent the first six years of his career with the Titans.
    Alot cheaper than what Curtis would have been. I like this signing!

    WHAT? Did you actually watch ANY Titans games last year? Vince Young threw the ball quite well thank you.

    I digress I know, but blank statements like this......I just start shaking my head.

    Great Signing Bennett got payed well because he will be starting next year when Bruce hangs um up. Bennet moves the WR priority way down now.

    Re: BREAKING NEWS: St. Louis Rams sign WR Drew Bennett

    This is fantastic, I was so worried about losing this guy. This has to make our wide recieving core the best in the league. Good thing the ***** broke the bank on Clements cause they are going to need him! Hopefully Banta-Cain see's whats up. If not take a run at Joey Porter. Theres a couple of 4-3 teams looking at porter, he could play strong side for us.

    Re: BREAKING NEWS: St. Louis Rams sign WR Drew Bennett

    Rotoworld's take: "The 6-5 Bennett is exactly what coach Scott Linehan has been looking for in a slot receiver. He easily could've gotten a "starting" job elsewhere, but St. Louis will use more three-receiver sets to keep its best weapons on the field. Bennett, Isaac Bruce, and Torry Holt give the Rams arguably the best top three receivers in the NFL, and should help solidify Marc Bulger solidify as a top-five, possibly top-three fantasy quarterback."

    We'll go with that one instead. I am perfectly fine letting Curtis leave since we're bringing Bennett in. The guy has looked good in Tennessee and should cause a lot of problems for defenses. A big guy like bennett should really help improve the offense in the red zone as well. I think the team is going to come out a lot better after this deal

    I think this is great news! We get the tall target we have been looking for and at the same time have found Bruce's replacement whenever he decides to hang up his cleats.

    The other thing I like about the free agent moves we've been making is that it frees us up to focus more directly on the positions we still need such as DT. Maybe now we can get both a NT and a UT in the early rounds.

    Hi!

    Hey just wanted to say you guys got a great Free Agent addition with Bennett! I was hoping Tennessee would be able to sign him again but I think he's ended up in a great situation.

    Bennett is a classy guy and does a lot of charity work, so he's going to be a great addition to your city as well!

    Good Luck Rams Fans!

    Drew...we're going to miss ya buddy...

    Re: BREAKING NEWS: St. Louis Rams sign WR Drew Bennett

    Living here in Titan's country (it's 5 hours away but I'm surrounded by Titans' fans) they all tell me what a great signing this is and I would have to agree. We'll probably be running 3 WR sets more often and with the talent at WR we could do some serious damage running out of those sets. Great deal.
