    not surprised after Bell was brought back. I wonder if this means they'll resign Goldberg to back up both guard positions.

    Did they give us Peyton Hillis?

    In all seriousness though, I'd assume they're giving us LB D'Qwell Jackson.

    I'd love a trade for D'Qwell... Other than his injury problems, he is an amazing linebacker.

    I thought Greco was pretty good depth, but for whatever reason couldn't make it on the field. Hopefully the Rams got some decent value for him.

    Per Rotoworld:

    Browns acquired OG John Greco from the Rams in exchange for an undisclosed future draft pick.

    I doubt it. I'm pretty sure Jackson is an ILB, and we're probably on the prowl for a SAM linebacker. He played WLB in college.

    With this said, he has missed a year and a half, and if Shurmur is high on Greco, the value might be right.

    I think it will be a future sixth round pick.

    We only got a 7th for Tye Hill when we traded him to the Falcons and he actually saw the field instead of riding the pine. If we get a 6th, we should count ourselves lucky.

    This means that only 5 out of 26 draftees from the Linehan era remain with the team -- all of them being from the '08 class. What a disaster. I imagine if Devaney hadn't been brought on prior to then, it would be even lower.

    I guess Goldberg should be back, IMO a good thing because he would be filling his ideal role as the swing do it all 6th lineman

    Well, I guess we know now that Shurmur liked Greco, he just got outplayed by Goldberg constantly. Hope we get a good pick, but I doubt it. 6th round at best...
    I believe!

    I read we are getting a conditional 7th round pick that they only have to give us if Greco starts games. Hopefully they threw in a pack of bubble gum with that pick or else we basically gave him away for nothing.

    Ahahaha. I dont mind much though he was some decent depth. We can find a backup just like him but for much cheaper.

    a shame to see a young o-lineman with talent depart..hope we got better options than Goldberg to fall back on.

    Surprising move. The Rams FO must not rate him. Im a little upset, as I thought Greco would be more the physical presence on the line that the Rams wanted. I think the Rams may prefer Goldberg's adaptability to play all the positions on the line and his leadership.?
