    Rams meeting with WR Reche Caldwell and CB David Macklin

    Free agents from Washington visit Rams
    By Jim Thomas
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    03/20/2008

    Looking for depth at wide receiver and cornerback, the Rams were scheduled to meet Thursday with two free agents from the Washington Redskins — Reche Caldwell and David Macklin.

    Caldwell, 28, was a second-round draft pick by San Diego in 2002 out of Florida. His best season came in 2006 when he lead New England in receptions (61), reception yards (760) and scored four touchdowns.

    But after an offseason in which the Patriots added Randy Moss, Wes Welker, and Donte’ Stallworth to their receiver corps, Caldwell was released last Sept. 3. He subsequently signed with the Redskins, appearing in eight games and catching 15 passes for 141 yards.

    Macklin, 29, entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick by Indianapolis in 2000 out of Penn State. In four seasons with the Colts and three with Arizona, Macklin started 75 games at cornerback. He was a full-time starter for two years in Indy and two years with the Big Red.

    He signed with Washington last season and appeared in only six games, with no starts. Macklin has 14 career interceptions. One of his best stretches of play came in the 2003 playoffs with Indianapolis, when he had two interceptions and two fumble recoveries in three postseason games.

    So are we looking at adding Caldwell to make Bennett look better? Cause he is about the only player I've seen who can drop as many balls. IMO

    Well, if we're looking for depth only(WR4 - 10, maybe 15) and to address WR next year in the draft, Caldwell wouldn't be horrid. Of course, despite having "all-world" Tom Brady throwing him the ball, he never set the world on fire.

    Macklin at least has a lot of starting experience. He could teach the youngins a thing or two.

    I would love to have Macklin in the squad.

    Caldwell...nah. I want a replacement for Isaac Bruce, not replacement of camp receivers.

    An interesting tidbit I learned today....Reche Caldwell is the older brother of Andre Caldwell, a Florida reciver in this year's draft, who I thought we might want in the 3rd round if he's still there.

    Dad gum it, there goes another monitor.

    Fantastic quote on Bennett. I swear, no more Mt. Dew and reading ClanRam. Costing me a fortune in monitor purchases.
