  • Contract Status of Every Rams Player

    Per the Post Dispatch...



    (*) Players who would be unrestricted free agents in a capped year but restricted free agents in an uncapped year.

    Terms
    • Unrestricted free agents • Free to sign with any team, no strings attached.
    • Restricted free agents • Rams have matching rights; can receive draft pick compensation if they choose not to match.
    • Exclusive rights free agents • Rams have exclusive rights to player if they make a one-year qualifying offer.



    It's an image file, let me know if it doesn't show up and I'll do some reworking.

        Thanks for posting that, Nick.

        Of the UFAs, I would only keep Massey, Hall and (if he chooses not to retire) Little. The others can go. Amongst the RFAs, Fells, Ryan, Bassey and Dahl should be kept as depth guys (or more than that if they do well in pre-season).

          I'd also like to keep Adeyanju. He seems to have been in the dog house for some reason, but I really liked him.

              Yeah, I agree with you. Don't know how I missed him!

                We are coming off of a 1-15 season. Alot of the guys on the list are not going to be back regardless of their current contract status.

                Who knows what is on Devaney and Spags mind? Not me?

                  Good point LARam0. A lot of these guys won't see the light in the Edward Jones Dome next year. Reform is needed, and part of taht process includes cutting some guys off the squad.

                    Why keep Massey when Neill is younger & will probably be cheaper ? Neill did a good job, especially considering he came in as a mid-season replacement on a unit that relies on precision; I don't recall any botched long snaps.

                    The Adeyanju thing is a tough one to decipher. I liked him as well in ' O8. But just like Darby, he saw so little playing time in '09 until The Rams had no choice that you have to wonder if there isn't some "intangibles" stuff behind it; the way he practices/studies,etc.

                          You keep Massey because he has only botched one snap since he came into the league in 2002. In a dire circumstance, he could be used as a FB (which he was early in his career). You keep him because in 2007, he played over half of the season with a groin tear and waited until afte the season to have surgery.

                            I was saddened to see Massey go down with a blown ACL,too, & appreciate as a fan what he's contributed to the team. But the NFL is a coldhearted business & Neill is younger, cheaper,healthier, & also did an excellent job under difficult circumstances this year.

                            It's laudable that Massey played through injury but don't NFL players do that all the time & it's a lot harder to come back from reconstructive knee surgery,no?

                            I don't even know what to say to the FB argument...you really want to see such a precious specialist slamming into the DL as lead blocker as well as the mayhem of kick coverage?!! I doubt any team has ever used a longsnapper that way. In any case, Neill was a pretty good DE in college from what I've read & we sure could use a little help there if we're gonna go nuts about such things. LOL...

                              Whoa ... I didn't know about Atogwe. He and Laurinitas are the only defensive players i'm totally bonkers for ...

                              I'd like to see Ammendola stick around. He could turn into an Az Hakim - but with a brain!

                                Free agents get tendered offers from Rams

                                BY JIM THOMAS
                                Thursday, March 3, 2011

                                Even with a work stoppage looming tonight in the National Football League, the Rams are proceeding — at least for now — in a business-as-usual fashion. To wit, the team has made one-year tender offers to eight potential restricted free agents.

                                Tight end Daniel Fells, defensive tackle Gary Gibson and offensive tackle Renardo Foster were tendered at a right of first refusal level. None of the three players were drafted, so the Rams have matching rights on any outside offers. But they would not get draft pick compensation if the players received a contract offer from another club and the Rams decided not to match that offer.

                                Meanwhile, linebacker Chris Chamberlain, offensive guard John Greco, cornerback Justin King, wide receiver Laurent Robinson and linebacker David Vobora were tendered at their original draft position level.

                                That means the Rams would get draft pick compensation equal to those players' original draft position if they got a contract offer from another team and the Rams decided not to match. Greco and Robinson were drafted in the third round; King in the fourth; and Chamberlain and Vobora in the seventh.

                                In the case of Fells, Gibson and Robinson, the tender offers may end up being a case of meaningless paperwork. Those three players have four years or more of NFL experience. In a normal year, they would be eligible for unrestricted free agency, meaning they could sign with another team, no strings attached.

                                But last offseason, because it was a year with no salary cap, the minimum experience required to be eligible for unrestricted free agency was pushed up to six years. So under last year's rules Fells, Gibson and Robinson reverted back to restricted status — none of them have six years experience. The Rams filed the tender offers as if last year's rules were in place.

                                However, it's expected that whenever a new labor agreement is reached, the eligibility requirements for unrestricted free agency will go back to four years, meaning Fells, Gibson and Robinson would then become unrestricted.

                                But in the case of Chamberlain, Foster, Greco, King and Vobora, all have three years experience, so they are restricted free agents no matter what. With the exception of Foster, the four other players in this group were part of the Rams' 2008 draft class.

                                The Rams did not make tender offers to three other players scheduled for traditional restricted free agency (three years experience): cornerback Quincy Butler, running back Kenneth Darby and linebacker Curtis Johnson. That doesn't mean the Rams won't try to re-sign them at some point for a minimum wage. But for now, it means they are free to sign with any team — as if they were released players — once the free agency and trading period begins.

                                Of...
