    Frustrated by Free Agency? Do the math.

    I understand that people get annoyed when another team makes a deal that they think the Rams should have made, but consider this...

    How many "big name" free agents are there this year? Ten... maybe?

    How many teams are there in the league?

    There is no guarantee that the Rams will sign any of the big name players.

    It is entirely unlikely that the Rams will sign multiple big name players.

    So... while we can all hope, you may want to manage your expectations to avoid disappointment.

    No disappointment here, would you guys rather we go out and overpay inconsistent, over-the-hill veterans like Kyle Van den Bosch or Nate Burleson? I'd rather spend the money by giving Atogwe the long-term contract he deserves and continue building through the draft.

    I agree. The unfortunate thing about the uncapped year is that the type of FAs the Rams should be considering (younger players on the rise) are now mostly RFAs.

    Exactly, we are a victim of circumstance I suppose.. and I don't think we're in any position to start giving up draft picks for any of these guys.
