  • Pickett could come back after all

    Of the teams interested in him, Cleveland has spent money on Kevin Shaffer and LeCharles Bentley, and they are supposed to be front runners to sign Ma'ake Kemoeatu. The Cardinals have just signed Kendrick Clancy, and they already have a few interior DL so i doubt Pickett will go there to be a backup.

    That leaves the Packers and Bills as far as i know, so it is possible Pickett returns. Obviously that does depend on how much they are willing to pay of course

    He's good to have, but if we don't resign him, I don't think it will totally demolish the rebuilding of the Defense

      No thats true, however having him and Glover in the middle would be great

        I wouldn't be surprised to see the Bills make a strong run at him. Word out of Buffalo is that they may be running a Cover 2 type defense, which is what Pickett played under Lovie since being here.

          True, but if that happens then Ngata would drop wouldnt he?

            Probably, though he could go to Oakland at seven.

              With Kemeatoua (again, spelling, who knows?) off the table, Pickett's resigning is now an even bigger priority.

              Either we resign Pickett or we pray that Kennedy is finally healthy.
              The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                Pickett: " I wasn't treated right"

                Pickett, Packers prove a good fit

                For some free agents, the Green Bay Packers can be a tough sell.

                Many players take one look at the NFL’s smallest market and decide to look elsewhere.

                But as soon as Ryan Pickett had a chance to see Green Bay, he saw it as home.

                “As soon as my wife, Jennifer, got here, she just fell in love with it,” Pickett said. “She loved the fact that it was a small town. She liked that our kids will be in good schools. She liked the people here. That’s what was most important to me, that my wife was happy.”

                The last five seasons with the St. Louis Rams weren’t always happy for Pickett and his family. Despite putting up good statistics, Pickett was labeled a bit of a disappointment after being selected in the first round of the 2001 draft. Last season, Pickett led the St. Louis defensive linemen with 65 tackles, including 12 for a loss, but said he never felt wanted in St. Louis.

                “I really feel like I wasn’t treated right,” Pickett said. “It’s always frustrating when people are saying things about you and bad things about the defense. It hurts when your family hears negative things about you, especially when it’s not true.”

                The Rams, however, did everything they could to keep him in St. Louis.

                “They tried to match what Green Bay was offering me,” Pickett said. “But it was time for me to move on. It’s a fresh start here, and that’s a good thing.”

                By giving Pickett a four-year, $14 million contract with $5 million in bonuses, the Packers paid a hefty price to lure Pickett to Green Bay. The Packers had done pretty well the last 2˝ seasons with Grady Jackson at defensive tackle, but General Manager Ted Thompson couldn’t resist making what he believes is an upgrade with Pickett, who is seven years younger than Jackson and doesn’t have the weight or injury problems that plagued Jackson the last two seasons.

                “He’s big enough to provide the anchor in the middle that every defense needs,” Packers defensive coordinator Bob Sanders said.

                “We really wanted a player who we thought would be a force in the middle against the run. It’s the main reason we pursued him.”

                Pickett had only six sacks during his five seasons with the Rams, but said he believes he can be an effective pass rusher.

                “I think a lot of people didn’t see that because I didn’t do that in St. Louis because of the role that they gave me,” Pickett said. “I’m going to prove it here that I can rush the passer, and I think Coach Sanders is going to give me a chance to do that here, and I’m really happy about having the opportunity to finally do that.”

                Sanders said he thinks Pickett will surprise people with his pass-rushing abilities.

                “We definitely think he’s capable...

                What if Ryan Pickett...
                by Varg6
                Hey everyone, I was just wondering what you guys think...

                What if Ryan Pickett went to the probowl last year, do you think we would've retained him because of that? I'm not sure if it really makes all the difference, but on the other hand, maybe if he went there, it would've made the Rams want him more.

                Why do we let players like him? He is a great run stopper and guess what we need. We drafted him why not keep him? If the same thing happens with OJ I am seriously going to questions the Rams decisions.

                PS I know the FO was different at that time, but either way you think about it, it doesnt make sense.

                The Rams will not retain P Bryan Barker,
                I thought he did pretty well last year considering how bad our punting was with Hodges

                The Cardinals are interested in free agent DT Ryan Pickett.Interior defensive line is a definite need-area for Arizona. Pickett is an underrated stopgap and would solidify the position. Buffalo and Cleveland are other potential suitors.
