    Re: Which Would Blow You Away More...

    I looked at this from the point of view of what is most likely and worked backwards from there.

    1. Not signing an OLB or OG... obviously we will sign at least one of these if only for camp bodies, but I took this to be a starting player. I think it's possible that we go with Vobora/Diggs and Greco so it's quite possible.

    2. Signing Plax or Moss... both have history with our coaches and fit the mold of one thing we don't have, veteran big possession receivers. Possible, as it fits a hole, but unlikely.

    3. Stewart starting at FS... We drafted him to play at somepoint, but an immediate replacement is unlikely. I'd say we'll sign a starting safety in FA for one of the spots.

    4. Gilyard, and for that matter, Gibson, making the roster... if one of our receivers was a low round pick, even 5th round, I would be much less surprised by this possibility, but we're keeping 6 guys max and both rookies have to be there, or else someone WILL grab them off the PS/waivers. Clayton, Avery, Amendola, DX, Salas, Pettis. No room for either of the G's. If they are PS eligible, which Gilyard probably is with how little he played last year, that's where he'll probably land.
    I believe!

    Rams signing Plaxico or Moss.. We had a chance to sign moss but we passed on him. What makes you think Plaxico will get signed?

    I voted for, "The Rams signing Plaxico or Moss." After drafting two receivers and likely bringing Clayton back, I just don't think the Rams will have room to add anyone else.

    I think signing Plaxico makes sense....

    I don't see how we could not sign either an OLB/OG....simply for depth......

    Plaxico as a 1 year mentor to Pettis on how to use his body and play the #1 WR role as a big body, hands receiver could pay off..

    Rookie WR's have the hardest transition of first year skill players due to learning the full route tree, blocking, the speed of the game and the physicality on the line


    It's hard to see both Danny and Salas on the roster next season....they both play similar roles...

    Signing Moss or Burress would really surprise me. I believe Spags and Billy are building this team block by block for the long haul. I don't see much value in acquiring Plaxico or Moss. An integral part of the "long haul" plan, one might guess, would be to provide Sam with eager young receivers with which to develop chemistry year in and year out.

    Not signing a guard or linebacker would be next in line as to which would surprise me more ..

    I think both 1 and 2 are just a highly unlikely. Gilyard's done unless he shows a miraculous improvement. And no we wont sign Plax or Moss. Those other 2 are highly likely, especially the way Stewart played at times last year.

    Aaaaagh! Voted for MG making active roster but after clicking on the button I realized the vote should have been on the Burress / Moss option.

    I voted for Mardy making the active roster. The Rams have so many WR's that the chances of mardy making the roster over guys like Danny, Salas, Pettis, Avery, Danario, even Gibson and clayton if he is resigned is doubtful.

    Voted Signing Plax / Moss. was tempted to choose Gilyard but injuries happen and he may make the roster through attrition. Also voted Moss / Plax as if we did sign a WR, id say we sign Sims-Walker before these 2
