    Titans' Bell at top of Rams' list on offensive line

    With Pittsburgh guard Alan Faneca off to the New York Jets thanks to a free-agent contract averaging a reported $8 million a year, the Rams have turned their sights on Tennessee’s Jacob Bell.

    Bell, the Titans’ starting left guard for three of the past four seasons, is scheduled to pay a free-agent visit to Rams Park on Monday. A bit undersized at 6-4, 295 pounds, Bell is an athletic, technically sound blocker who turns 27 on Sunday. Bell and Indianapolis’ Jake Scott are widely considered the best guards in this year’s free agency pool other than Faneca.

    Meanwhile, it looks like the Rams are about to lose strongside linebacker Brandon Chillar in free agency. According to league sources, Chillar is scheduled to visit Arizona on Monday, and the Cardinals are expected to make a strong bid to sign him on the spot. If he somehow gets out of Arizona without a contract, Green Bay wants him to visit. Chillar has been a full-time starter the past two years in St. Louis, registering a career-high 85 tackles in 2007.

    In another move, the Rams have completed their coaching staff with the hiring of assistant strength and conditioning coach Chuck Faucette. Faucette has had past stints as a strength coach with the University of Texas and Southern Methodist University. He played linebacker for Rams’ offensive coordinator Al Saunders in the late 1980s when Saunders was head coach of the San Diego Chargers.

    With the jets grabbing FANECA , and the draft additions. their O-LINE is looking very very good . MANGOLD -C and FERGUSON -T , will now be given a great veteran to lead them , and this is the right guy too . If McFADDEN FALLS TO THEM , watch for the JETS to make some noise this year . he would have been a great addition but not at 8 mil. a year .
