ESPN's Williamson: Rams one of three NFC teams to earn "A" in free agency
My general distaste for immediate letter-style grading of personnel acquisition periods aside, I thought this was a nice write-up for what the Rams accomplished in free agency.
Key additions: CB Cortland Finnegan, DE Kendall Langford, C Scott Wells, WR Steve Smith
Key losses: WR Brandon Lloyd, CB Ron Bartell, DE James Hall, DT Justin Bannan, DT Fred Robbins, C Jason Brown
Analysis: Recently, I tagged the Rams as big offseason winners this year, and my reasoning is best explained there. But to sum it up, the Rams are now set up extremely well to build their team for the long term with Jeff Fisher leading the show. Speaking of Fisher, his familiarity with Finnegan was obviously a huge factor. Not only does Finnegan fill a massive need on the field, but he's a good citizen off the field. Langford has some versatility in terms of where he can line up on the D-line and is just entering the prime of his career, while Wells is a big upgrade at center for St. Louis. Considering the dismal state of the Rams' wide receivers, taking a chance on Smith is a calculated gamble that could pay off as a security blanket for Sam Bradford. The Rams also did a nice job of purging some older expensive defensive linemen to better prepare for the future. We might not see the results of this offseason during the 2012 season, but St. Louis is set up extremely well for the long term because of what it has done during this period.
