    Guess what... in about 9 months we get to do this all over again!

    The FA/draft season is fun but, in some ways, its a bit exhausting. This was particularly true with the Rams taking a fairly active role in FA (both in terms of departing and arriving players) and in the draft (with 2 first round picks).

    In about 9 months, we get to do this all over again!

    The 2014 offseason should be as interesting as this year's, if not more so.

    The Rams' roster will be fairly stable. Only two likely starters (Rodger Saffold, Jo-Lonn Dunbar) are set to be be UFAs in 2014. Given the youth of the team, there are few players who might be cap casualties (perhaps our two 30+ players, Harvey Dahl and Scott Wells, or maybe Kendall Langford). Most of the salary cap will be tied up in a core of players who (though perhaps restructuring candidates) are not going anywhere: Sam Bradford, Jake Long, Jared Cook, Chris Long, James Laurinaitis, Cortland Finnegan. It won't be a spending spree scenario, but the Rams should once again be in a position to move some $ around and pursue a FA or two.

    As for the draft, the Rams will once again have two first round picks. Hopefully, the Redskins will have a horrible year and one of those picks will be a premium selection. Apart from perhaps looking for Saffold's replacement (assuming he does not re-sign), the Rams will likely be in full BPA mode next year, which will make for a very interesting draft season.

    We've got a full season of football to attend to before we'll need to worry about any of this stuff, but its nice to know that whatever happens in the 2013 season, the 2014 offseason will provide yet another opportunity to stock the team with young talent.

    Its a good time to be a Rams fan.

    I reeeeaalllllly hope the Redskins are terrible next year. I mean TERRIBLE. Next year there will be some excellent QB prospects (David Fales, Tajh Boyd, Johnny Manziel) which will all be headlined by current top 3 pick Teddy Bridgewater. If we can get a top 2 pick from the Redskins, I am very confident that we can find a QB desperate team that'd be willing to trade to #2 for Bridgewater, and in that sense we could once again be set for a few years.

    In my opinion Bridgewater is going to be an amazing prospect. He climbs the pocket so well, maneuvers through the pocket, and goes through progressions like I haven't really seen. Either that scenario, or we sit at #2 and grab the best prospect maybe ever in Jadeveon Clowney?

    Fun to work on some hypotheticals! I think I can speak for all Rams fans when I say I hope RG3 rests all year and doesn't play!

    keep an eye on a sign and trade for Kenny Britt ---- especially if he has a good start to the season and medically is fine.....

    couple that with Titans signing Hunter and could possible be 2-6 (or worse)., etc....

    keep an eye and ear...

    Britt sucks for a trade and would make absolutely no sense with who he have on the team. Drew Bennett 2.0?? No thanks

    Agree with you 100%. Let's enjoy the season and hope we make the playoffs before we begin getting too involved with next off-season. I'm looking forward to enjoying the fruits of this draft, which I'm sensing will prove very good. As for rooting against the Redskin's, lets root against the Squawks and the Whiners first.

    Don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but I'm eager to see what we got for 2013, which is why I like you your final quote.

    Go Rams!
