    anyone know what we get if Lloyd leaves? Anyways I really hope we sign Manningham and draft Blackmon then we'll have Blackmon at the #1, Manningham as our #2, Amendola(please Pats sign him)/Salas/Pettis in the slot and Alexander as our speed deep threat guy.

    Not sure if we would get compensatory picks for Lloyd, considering we only had him half the year. But if we did get a sixth rounder or so, would make the trade for him look a lot better.

    Free agent Mario Manningham is visiting the Rams Saturday.
    Manningham has had a surprisingly difficult time landing a deal after a number of free agent wideouts scooped up big contracts in the hours after free agency opened on Tuesday, but it's possible the free-spending Rams won't let him out of town without an agreement. Receiver is now the biggest need for a club that's aggressively addressed holes on both lines and at cornerback.

    Now that you mention it, I think I remember someone saying we would get a 6th. I'm not sure where I read that though.

    Here Howard Blazer explains the different scenarios involving Lloyd days after the trade. Including getting a compensatory pick.

    definitely need to get Manningham. he isnt a #1 but teamed up with Blackmon and Amendola in the slot with Salas on the other side would give us a pretty nice WR core. i doubt theyd have much money to spend in FA if they get Manningham but hopefully they can get soem quality Oline depth

    Free agent TE Matthew Mulligan will visit the Rams and *****.
    A blocking specialist, Mulligan played 40 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps last season, but caught just five passes for 58 yards. He won't be offered a role as a pass catcher on the open market.

    According to the New York Post, the Rams are currently working out the parameters of a contract for free agent WR Mario Manningham.
    Manningham has received an unexpectedly soft market, but remains a prime candidate to get overpaid in free agency. The Rams currently have Brandon Gibson slotted as their top receiver and likely won't let Manningham out of town without an agreement.

    Makes sense to bring in someone familiar with the offense. There's really nothing special about the Rams' depth at tight end, so if Mulligan can fill that situational blocking role, that works for me.

    So you were WRONG when you said that Manningham was in the building yesterday, huh, Jim? Makes me wonder what the source of your "information" is. I was under the impression that you were reporting first hand but, quite obviously, you were not (unless you thought some other person was Mario Manningham).

    This is what I HATE about the whole Twitter thing.
    I ask Jim what the deal was...

    @AdoreRealty

    @jthom1 You said he was there yesterday is this his second trip to Rams park?

    He corrected himself..

    Jim Thomas ‏ @jthom1

    Actually, Mario Manningham arrived Friday at Rams Park.


    So there you go AV the power of Twitter

    While Manningham would have been a solid acquisition, I wouldn't be overly concerned. There is a lot of time between now and the beginning of the season to fill the role that he would have played.

    Next!!!

    The Rams dropped out of OT Winston because he said he wanted to be the highest paid tackle in the NFL. He ended up signing a 4 year 22 million contract. I can't believe that the Rams said a contract like that is too rich for their blood. Don't understand that one.

    The best RT on the open market the Rams can look at now is Anthony Collins. He's young, and played well when called upon. He can compete with Smith for RT and would get a cheap contract (compared to Winston). I hope they give him a look.

    The Boston Globe believes the Patriots' signing of Brandon Lloyd could officially spell the end of Chad Ochocinco's time in New England.
    Ochocinco has hinted he's willing to take a pay-cut, but he had little chance of remaining in New England even before the signing of Lloyd. Whenever Ochocinco finally hits the open market, he could have a hard time landing guaranteed money.

    Ok I'm not desperate....
