    Would Rams Be Interested in Olympian?

    Perhaps the Rams should give the former Olympian a shot.

    British Olympian Lawrence Okoye Reportedly Drawing Interest from NFL Teams | Bleacher Report

    I"m reminded of two former track stars who transitioned to the NFL: Eric Metcalf (world-class long-jumper) and Bullet Bob Hayes (sprinter). I'm sure that there are more. IMO it would be interesting to see the Rams give this guy a shot or perhaps someone else who might have the hands (WR) or sports IQ (TE, D-Line) to make the transition. Could be a bargain.

    interesting....couldn't hurt either, he's a beast

    edit: as much as i hate to see track and field athletes leave the sport

    if he can make it work in the nfl, alright, good for him, track and field is a tough sport to make a bunch of money, whatever he wants to do

    at least he can always go back, just hope he wouldn't get injured too badly of course

    plus he apparently got into Oxford's law shool for cryin out loud, smart guy

    He is a beast and he'd be an anomoly in the NFL, namely an Oxford trained attorney. Too bright perhaps?
