    Tyree among four WRs to visit Rams Park, Baskett could be in mix

As expected, wide receiver David Tyree, one of the New York Giantsí Super Bowl heroes of two years ago, paid a visit to Rams Park on Tuesday. But according to league sources, Tyree didnít run very well. And if the Rams add another wideout to their roster, they may go in another direction.

    Three other receivers worked out for the team Tuesday: former Green Bay Packer Ruvell Martin; former New Orleans Saint Skyler Green; and former Tennessee Titan Chris Davis.

    The Rams also worked out running back Chauncey Washington, who was a seventh-round pick by Jacksonsville in 2008, and veteran linebacker Paris Lenon, a three-year starter for Detroit who was in New Englandís camp this summer.

    As of early Tuesday evening, the Rams still hadnít decided who or even if they were going to sign any players in that group. And Tuesdayís release of wide receiver Hank Baskett by Philadelphia gave the organization even more to think about. Early indications were that the team has interest in Baskett, who had a 90-yard touchdown reception against St. Louis last season.

    4 DB's Visit Rams Park, But None Signed

    4 DBs visit Rams Park, but none signed

    BY JIM THOMAS
    Tuesday, October 26, 2010

    Two safeties and two cornerbacks paid free-agent visits Tuesday to Rams Park. But none of the four players were signed.

    The safeties were Michael Lewis, a nine-year veteran most recently with San Francisco, and Gerald Alexander, a four-year veteran most recently with Jacksonville.

    The cornerbacks visiting were Ralph Brown, an 11-year veteran most recently with Arizona, and Geoffrey Pope, who has bounced around to Miami, Cincinnati, the New York Giants and Philadelphia since entering the NFL in 2007.

    The Rams have several injuries in their secondary, but safety James Butler's knee injury appears to be the only that may sideline anyone for more than a week. So Tuesday's activity was an attempt to identify a ready list in case the Rams feel they need to make a future move.

    Green checks out OK, considers Rams' offer

    Friday, Mar. 07 2008

    Quarterback Trent Green completed his free-agent visit to St. Louis on
    Thursday, and left town without a Rams contract. But the team still hopes to
    have Green under contract by the end of the weekend.

    According to Green's St. Louis-based agent, Jim Steiner, the Vianney High
    product and former Ram wants a couple of days to mull things over before
    deciding where he will play in 2008.

    "He'll make a very informed decision based on all the information he's gathered
    in the last few days in New Orleans and St. Louis," Steiner said.

    Green visited New Orleans earlier in the week. He has no other visits planned,
    but Steiner said Green Bay and the New York Giants have expressed interest.

    Coach Scott Linehan said the fact that Green wants a couple of days to think
    things over "was to be anticipated. Jay (Zygmunt) told me he did the same thing
    last time."

    Green signed with the Rams as a free agent prior to the 1999 season, was with
    the club for two years, then was traded to Kansas City in 2001.

    Green finished last season on the injured reserve list in Miami after suffering
    his second concussion in as many seasons. But Linehan said Green checked out
    fine after being examined by team doctors Thursday. "We have no concerns on our
    end at all," Linehan said.

    GOLDBERG SIGNS

    The Rams signed offensive lineman Adam Goldberg to a one-year contract and
    agreed to terms with tight end Anthony Becht. No further contract details were
    available.

    Goldberg, 27, has spent the past two seasons with the Rams, providing depth at
    guard and tackle. Goldberg, an unrestricted free agent, started two games at
    right tackle last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury in Game 4
    against Dallas. He appeared in 15 games for St. Louis in 2006, starting once at
    left guard and once at left tackle.

    Becht, 30, comes to the Rams as a free agent from Tampa Bay, where he spent the
    past three seasons. A first-round draft pick by the New York Jets in 2000,
    Becht is a blocking specialist with good size (6-5, 280 pounds). He entered the
    2007 season with 104 consecutive regular-season NFL starts, but started only
    twice in '07.

    The Rams also have signed punter Sean Douglas as a camp leg to help Donnie
    Jones in training camp.

    Rams Sign Wide Receiver K.D. Cannon

    The Rams added another wide receiver to their active roster on Friday. The team signed former Baylor wideout K.D. Cannon ahead of their sixth day of training camp. Cannon joins wideouts C.J. Germany and Justin Thomas as the third wide receiver signed in the last two days.

    Cannon was waived by the New York Jets on July 28th after parting ways with the San Fransisco ***** in June. During his time at Baylor, the receiver set six freshman records and ended his career as the third-leading all-time pass catcher in school history. In his last season with the Bears, Cannon recorded 87 receptions for 13 touchdowns and 1,215 yards....

    Green deciding if Rams in his future

    Trent Green completed his visit to St. Louis, will return home to mull things over, and then probably make a decision on where he will play in the NFL in 2008. Jim Steiner, Green's St. Louis-based agent, said Green is thorough and meticulous in making such decisions.

    "He makes a very informed decision based on all the information he's gathered in the last few days in New Orleans and St. Louis," Steiner said.

    Steiner said Green enjoyed his visit to St. Louis, noting there are a lot of positives about playing for the Rams based on the familiarity with the city, several players, and coaches. Green has no other visits planned at this time, but has also received calls from Green Bay and the New York Giants.

    In roster moves by the team on Thursday, the Rams have agreed to terms with offensive lineman Adam Goldberg and tight end Anthony Becht. Goldberg, 27, has spent the past two seasons with the Rams, providing depth at the guard and tackle positions.

    Goldberg started two games at right tackle last season before a knee injury (which did not require surgery) in Game 4 against Dallas ended his season. In 2006, Goldberg appeared in 15 games for St. Louis, starting once at left guard and once at left tackle.

    Becht, 30, comes to the Rams from Tampa Bay, where he has spent the past three seasons. A first-round draft pick by the New York Jets in 2000, Becht is a blocking specialist with good size for the position at 6-5, 280 pounds. He entered the 2007 season with 104 consecutive regular-season starts, but started only twice in '07.

    ***Thursday's Post-Dispatch story by Jim Thomas***

    Green pays a visit, gets big welcome

    With all respect to kicker Josh Brown and offensive guard Jacob Bell, no free-agent visit has stirred up as much buzz in the Gateway City this year as the arrival of quarterback Trent Green.

    When word spread of his impending visit to St. Louis, 80-year-old grandmothers, wives, and any Rams football fan old enough to remember 1999 got excited.


    "It's kind of neat," Green told the Post-Dispatch late Wednesday afternoon as he arrived at Rams Park for his visit. "I did get a call from a couple of my high school friends that still live in town, just telling me kind of what was going on. It's very flattering, obviously."

    St. Louis is Green's hometown. He played at Vianney High. And he was with the Rams in 1999 and 2000. Were it not for Green's knee injury in Game 3 of the '99 preseason, Kurt Warner might never have gotten off the bench in St. Louis.

    But then-San Diego safety Rodney Harrison took out Green's left knee with a questionable hit on Aug. 28. The obscure Warner stepped into the lineup. And the rest is St. Louis sports history.

    Green missed...

    Rams Notebook: Defensive linemen visit Rams
    by RamWraith

    04/27/2006


    In the midst of final draft preparations, the Rams have been trying to improve their defensive line depth. Veteran defensive tackles Grady Jackson and Jason Fisk paid free-agent visits to Rams Park this week.

    The Rams have had contract talks with both players, and one of the two could be signed before the draft. Both players are being looked at as rotation players. Signing either one probably wouldn't affect the team's draft plans. At the moment, La'Roi Glover and Jimmy Kennedy are the only defensive tackles on the roster with any appreciable NFL experience.

    Jackson, 33, has spent the past 2 1/2 seasons with Green Bay. At this stage of his career, he is most effective when used about 30-35 plays per game. Chronic knee problems usually result in Jackson not practicing near the end of the year. His weight can been an issue; he played at about 350 pounds last season. But even with that bulk, Jackson has a quick first step and is a surprisingly good pass rusher in addition to being a good run stuffer.

    Fisk, 33, who played last season for Cleveland, also was scheduled to visit New Orleans this week. At this stage of his career Fisk is best when used as a situational player on first and second down. Cleveland was forced to use him more often last season, and he wore down as the season progressed. He's a nose tackle, but at 6-3, 300, gets by more on technique than power.

    Rams sign four

    Wide receivers Kevin Curtis and Shaun McDonald, cornerback DeJuan Groce and defensive end Brandon Green have signed one-year tender offers from the Rams as restricted free agents. Curtis' one-year contract was for $1.57 million; the contracts for McDonald, Groce, and Green were for $721,000.

    Martin to Saints

    Quarterback Jamie Martin, who was 3-1 as a starter for the Rams last season, has signed a two-year free-agent contract with New Orleans. Contract terms weren't immediately available. Martin also drew interest from Cincinnati, Seattle, and Miami. Martin, 36, had several stints with the Rams dating to 1993 when the team was in Los Angeles. He will back up Drew Brees.

    Play dough

    Cornerback-kick returner Chris Johnson, who played for the Rams last season, signed a two-year $940,000 free-agent contract with Kansas City. ... Offensive lineman Todd Steussie's one-year contract with the Rams is for $850,000, including a $40,000 signing bonus.
