    Since Tomlinson isn't a quarterback, I'm not sure what you're getting at here...

    Don't forget about the fact that the Jets are also playoff contender teams.

    Re: Contracts

    Also, remember that the Rams have to pay over the top to entice players to come to St Louis, while a better franchise can pay less because the player has a chance to win

    Re: Contracts

    I know for sure that LT gets another 500k in incentives for his contract. I'm not sure if the specifics of the contract have been released yet.

    Here is Feeley's contract:

    3/5/2010: Signed a two-year, $6 million contract. The deal included an initial roster bonus of $2.25 million. 2010: $1 million (+ $500,000 roster bonus), 2011: $2.25 million, 2012: Free Agent

    I got them from doing a player search on rotoworld. Admittedly, not the best source available, but they're usually pretty good at reporting facts like this.

    Re: Contracts

    I realize they are different positions, and we would of had to pay more than 5.2 to LT to get him to st. louis, buttttt

    For 6 millions dollars of the rams ca money is there any rams fan out there that would take AJ Feeley of LT for the next 2 seasons?????

    Re: Contracts

    That's a false scenario...it's not an either or situation. I'm sure if LT had any interest at all in going to a team with no shot at the Super Bowl we could have gone after him even after signing Feeley...but he stated he wanted to go to a contender when he was released. He wouldn't have come here, not for anything short of a crazy contract.

    It's a moot point, because L.T. said all along he wanted to go to a contender. It's not as if the Rams could have signed L.T. for that price, but then chose to spend it on Feeley instead.

    And again, the Feeley deal is market value for a back-up QB in the league. There are at least half a dozen examples over the last three seasons of back-ups being signed to deals paying around $3 million per year.

    Finally, the Rams probably want to find a young running back to install behind Jackson rather than an older vet who is only going to give them a year or two. That's likely why the Rams were linked to Sproles but not some of the older vets that were floating around in free agency.

    Post like these is why we get the regular "SAME OLD RAMS" threads poking up everywhere, people choose to jump on something without thinking it through and end up looking like a jackarse....
