    Dunn or Brooks

    How come I have not heard any news about either of these two guys. Both released by Tampa and I believe (correct me if I am mistaken) neither have signed with another team yet.

    IMO I think the Rams should go after one of these two. Yes they are old but Derrick Brooks is a true leader on defense and would be an upgrade to our linebacker core. And Warrick Dunn still has I would say two years left in him.

    I would love to take Curry in this draft but we are in desperate need of an OT and Smith would be a good pick. And if we cannot trade up or get James Lauranites with our second pick signing Brooks would not hurt.

    And Dunn would be a good upgrade for a number 2 back who has already proven himself in the league and take some pressure off Jackson.

    What do you think about signing either of these two players?

    Brooks and Dunn? I think they are talented and might be a smash hit I am just not sure they are what we are looking for.

    Little too old for my liking. You build through the draft

    Well, you said that if the Rams can't get Laurinaitis they could sign Brooks, but I don't understand the logic. Derrick Brooks is not a middle linebacker in this league. He's a weak-side linebacker. And we have two of those already (Witherspoon and Pisa). As for Dunn, from a talent and skill standpoint, he's not bringing anything to the table that a younger faster player couldn't bring. I'd prefer to stay younger and avoid both guys.

    As coaches, absolutely. As players, no. Because they won't come to the Rams anyway, as they'll be looking for contenders first, and then a paycheck. Both of which we're not exactly good for for veteran players.
