  • T.J. Duckett Released - Worth a Look?

    I'd say he's worth bringing in as a candidate to back up Jackson. He's only 28, and has had some success in the league. He's also a very good receiver.

    Plus, it couldn't hurt to have a guy on the team who has inside info on what the Seahawks are doing.

    I wonder why he was released.
    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

      They signed Edgerrin James. I think that, and Duckett's salary, were the main reasons.

        Duckett is a beast....He could certainly spell Jackson and help alot in the short yardage game and the dreaded RED ZONE!

          One of our main concerns about Jax is keeping him healthy, right? Why not sign one of the best short yardage backs in the league so that we can use him for those 3rd and shorts as opposed to letting Jackson get beat up on those short, goalline type runs?

          Further, Av is absolutely correct in thinking with a bit of gamesmanship in mind, Duckett has been studying the Seattle playbook all offseason long. This is a huge gift into what they're planning on doing, giving us all the more opportunity to get a win in week 1.

          I really don't see a downside here. We should be on the phone with Duckett asap!
          I believe!:ram:

            Sounds good to me. I believe Billy D. shoud get on the phone and give this guy a tryout. He is still in his prime and shoud be able to provide some depth at running back. Also we would have an inside guy on what the dreaded seahawks are doing. I hate the seahawks so much...

              isnt this the second time "junior" has cut Duckett? (last time when he was the Falcons HC)..

              Ive always thought of Duckett as a bit of an handful for defenses to play against ..i think we should get as many of those types as possible..gotta agree with every other reason folks have stated why we should go and get him..maybe Devaney knows him (tho not sure if they were both at the Falcons at the same time,but i think they were..)

                Should the rams go after this guy?

                Since the obvious happened with KW being released, why hasn't Duncan been released?
                by adarian_too
                OK. Releasing KW "saves money." It became obvious over time that the FO woulldn't support bringing back KW. Well, what is up with the fact that Jamie Duncan hasn't been released?

                It is after June 1st, so the salary cap isn't an issue. Duncan had his 2nd chance last year. It should be "obvious" too that Duncan has been dead weight. If the FO thinks depth is an issue, then they can go out and get Trotter or Gilden.

                In fact, despite the big contract, Trotter's didn't have much of an off year last year. He had 115 solos/assisted tackles. (His high is only 122, 120, & 115 with Phil). He had 2 forced fumbles which equaled his career high. And he had 1 interception which equalled or exceeded four of his 6 seasons.

                This "obviously" would help the Rams at LB even if Duncan isn't released - which frankly boggles the mind why it hasn't happened yet. Trotter's release puts him in poorer bargaining position then when he originally signed with Wash. so salary cap issues should be navigatable.

                Snyder didn't know what he was doing in acquiring Candidate and he also, I submit, didn't know what he was doing in releasing Trotter.

                I'd like a really cogent reason from the FO why they don't release Duncan and pick up Trotter.

                Renaldo Wynn to be released
                by tomahawk247
                Renaldo Wynn is to be released along with a whole host of Redskin players. He could be a very solid starter opposite Leonard Little, and he played very well for Washington last year. He might be quite cheap as well.

                Per Adam Schefter, Mikell is being released, freeing the Rams of the 7 million he was owed this year.
