    Rumor Squashed: Rams Yet to Sign Snelling

    Source: "Free agent rumors: Have the Rams found a guard and a running back?" - Turf Show Times

    I know this exciting news, but this is still an unconfirmed rumor fellas, so please take it with a grain of salt.

    The have been several reports of the Rams being interested in free agent guards, including on earlier this week, reported by the PD, that they were interested in Packers G Daryn Colledge. Arizona signed him.
    Talk of the Rams signing Jason Snelling comes from Jason Miller on Sirius/XN NFL talk radio. There's no telling if he's on to something or not. It's been reported that that Snelling was the Rams top priority. However, as someone who would know told me this morning: "assume what you hear is wrong more often than it's right."
    Agents and teams never use the media to leak false reports...never.
    MORE: As Brick Top mentioned in the post below, there's a rumor about Brian Waters floating around out there too, but it doesn't have the same level of sources, talking about it. Waters is an older, 34, pass blocking specialist. Dahl would be a big addition for the Rams; he's one of the five best free agent guards available. A good blocker, he's not a mauler at all. If the Dahl rumors prove to be true, the Rams really are committed to a line that excels in pass blocking, with pure power a secondary concern. It's hard to see the Rams tying up this much money on their offensive line, having inked John Greco to a third-round RFA tender. But I certainly wouldn't complain if they do make it a priority.
    Snelling could be a real steal. I would really like that signing.

    Re: Rumor Rams Signed Snelling

    If we sign Snelling then I'll be ecstatic. He's the guy I wanted as a backup all along(although I did want devine or Lock as a scatback option as well).

    I really hope this is true, especially considering the fact we missed out on Bush and Sproles.

    Number one, no links.

    Number two, if it's unconfirmed or a rumor, post it in the Draft/FA section.

    Thread is being edited and moved accordingly.

    After seeing this video, I hope we do sign Snelling. He pretty much had a career day against the Cards.

    Rams sources have confirmed that Snelling has not agreed to a contract.

    True, but if the original report hasn't been confirmed by someone by now, then I think it's fairly safe to say it wasn't accurate.

    Hopefully an accurate report of his signing will emerge soon!
