    Rams and day two of free agency

    Turf Show by VanRam


    The sun rises on the second day of free agency. With backup QB A.J. Feeley now signed to a two-year, $6 million contract, will the St. Louis Rams venture toward any other free agent moves? They're bound to do something, and with the dust settled on the biggest names and contracts, teams can start getting to work on the smaller deals.

    Not much happened overnight related to the Rams, though I did read this report from Rotoworld that there are several teams making calls on Broncos WR Brandon Marshall, with Seattle being considered the leader. Hopefully, Seattle doesn't land the deal, but with two first round picks they have lots of flexibility to make things happen. As for the Rams, I just don't see how they can swing a trade of that size. They can't really afford to give up their top draft picks, and there's nobody on the roster (anyone that they're willing to trade) that they can use as trade bait for a superstar player like Marshall. Alex Barron?

    Speaking of Barron, how would he fit with a team that uses cut blocking schemes on the offensive line?

    There's that other Denver player that the Rams have been linked to, TE Tony Scheffler. If the Brandon Marshall trade talks are going hot and heavy, the Broncos might be waiting to handle offers for Scheffler. He's tendered at the second round level, so they're under no rush to get a deal done. One report says Scheffler's agent is starting to look for a new landing spot for his client; although, word is that it could be a couple weeks before something happens.

    The Atogwe situation still makes some sense, though few seem to like it. The situation with Daniel Fells boggles the mind. If Fells walks, the Rams have one TE on the roster, blocking specialist Billy Bajema. They have to have some plans to bring in another player, even if they do bring back Fells.

    I'd love the Rams to trade a couple picks for Brandon Marshall and Tony Scheffler, but I don't think it'll happen.

    I think a semi realistic option would be to bring in Aaron Kampman for a meeting, I think he'd be a great addition to our line.

    Yeah, I'm still trying to digest the TE debacle that has taken place. We signed this Fine guy from Buffalo and kept him for what? 2 weeks before sending him packing. Then to let Fells go is puzzling. I suppose we can bank on drafting a TE this year. Perhaps top of 2 or maybe 3, but I'm guessing it'll be earlier rather than later.

    our TE issues go back to our old pal Scott Linehan when we had about 14 on the roster and now we might only have one,hopefully the Fells deal will work out,I think he could be a big part of the offense this season,if he stays healthy and we sign him of course.
