        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!

                                Who Will Be the Most Overpriced NFL Free Agents?
                                by RamBill
                                NFL insiders Pete Prisco and Will Brinson take a look at which players might get a larger contract than what they are worth. Ed Reed? Wes Welker? Anthony Spencer?

                                Which free agent do you think will be over-paid?

                                by AvengerRam_old
                                I understand that people get annoyed when another team makes a deal that they think the Rams should have made, but consider this...

                                How many "big name" free agents are there this year? Ten... maybe?

                                How many teams are there in the league?

                                There is no guarantee that the Rams will sign any of the big name players.

                                It is entirely unlikely that the Rams will sign multiple big name players.

                                So... while we can all hope, you may want to manage your expectations to avoid disappointment.

                                by bruce4life
                                In fact, it is more typically the bargain players in restricted free agency -- young veterans who perhaps have outplayed their draft status but still received just the low-level qualifying offer -- who are most attractive. Here's a look at 10 players with compensation in the third round or lower who might garner interest:

                                • WR Nate Burleson, Minnesota (compensation: third round): Has started 33 games in three seasons and posted 68 catches for 1,006 yards and nine touchdowns in 2004. Injuries limited his playing time and his production in 2005, but it's still hard to believe the Vikings, with all the cap room they possessed, didn't make him a higher qualifying offer. Could be a terrific No. 2 receiver if he stays healthy. Visited with Seattle officials last week but did not sign an offer sheet.

                                • CB Ricky Manning, Carolina (compensation: third round): Former starter who moved into nickel role after the Panthers signed Ken Lucas in free agency last spring. Undersized, but a feisty defender who plays a physical style and gets around the football. Lots of playing time on his résumé. Nine career interceptions during the regular season and had three pickoffs as a rookie in the 2003 NFC Championship Game.

                                • OG Vincent Manuwai, Jacksonville (compensation: third round): Has struggled at times, and seems to have fallen out of favor a bit with the Jaguars staff, but still a tough in-line blocker. At 312 pounds, can be a real load, and he has started 46 games in three seasons.

                                • PK Josh Brown, Seattle (compensation: seventh round): A few teams are said to be considering making him an offer, but fear the Seahawks would match, no matter the terms. Has converted 63 of 80 field-goal tries and all but one of his 145 extra-point attempts. Is 23-for-37 from 40 yards or more and has connected on 7 of 12 field-goal attempts of 50 yards or more. At age 26, could have 10 or more productive years left in him.

                                • OG Montrae Holland, New Orleans (compensation: fourth round): Like Manuwai, is a tough drive blocker, and has started 30 games, including 23 contests the past two seasons. Has had past problems with his knees, and that will always be a concern, along with weight issues. But can play both guard spots and is a nasty mauler when he's on his game.

                                • LB Hunter Hillenmeyer, Chicago (compensation: fifth round): Not a very flashy defender, but a solid strong-side backer who makes the play he is supposed to make, and is rarely out of position. Became a full-time starter in 2004 and has averaged 80.5 tackles the last two seasons. Only has 3˝ sacks, but he can control the tight end and gets pretty good drops in the passing game.

                                • WR Shaun McDonald, St. Louis (compensation: fourth round): Has been overshadowed by Curtis, who was also chosen in the 2002 draft. Started just three games in three seasons, but has 93 catches for 1,079 yards, and is quick enough to add...

                                Thomas: Rams Will Let Most Of Their Free Agents Walk

                                Rams will let most of their free agents walk

                                BY JIM THOMAS
                                Friday, March 9, 2012

                                With the free agency period beginning March 13, the Rams have just four days of exclusive negotiating rights when it comes to re-signing their own players. Once the free agency and trading period begins Tuesday afternoon, those Rams free agents can shop the market, negotiate, and sign with anyone in the NFL.

                                The Rams have a long list of pending unrestricted free agents — 20 players— but are interested in re-signing only a handful of those 20. Unless things heat up between now and next Tuesday, the Rams might not have any of those players re-signed before the start of free agency.

                                If nothing else, the lack of activity is a sign the Rams might be saving most of their dollars to sign outside free agents. When you've lost 65 of your past 80 games, standing pat isn't the desired course of action anyway. The Rams are trying to upgrade the roster, not bring the band back together for a reunion tour.

                                The "headliner" among Rams free agents is wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, who led the team in catches (51), yards (683), and touchdown catches (five) despite playing in only 11 Rams games after his October trade from Denver. The Rams are talking to Lloyd's agent, but indications are that contract talks are far from the hot-and-heavy stage.

                                Lloyd might want to test the market, anyway, especially with benefactor Josh McDaniels now working as offensive coordinator in New England, where the Patriots need help at receiver. And the Rams might want to extend themselves only so far with Lloyd given the other potential options in the draft and free agency.

                                Among their other pending free agents, the Rams also have been in discussions with left guard Jacob Bell, outside linebacker Chris Chamberlain and punter Donnie Jones. Bell spent his first four seasons with coach Jeff Fisher in Tennessee before signing with the Rams as a free agent in 2008. He missed the last four games of the 2011 season with a right knee injury, an injury that did not require surgery. But the new Rams regime thought Bell blocked well in his later games, particularly against New Orleans.

                                Jones had his worst season as a Ram in 2011, but punted at or close to a Pro Bowl level in his four previous years with St. Louis. The Rams considered placing a transition tag on Jones prior to the March 5 deadline for transition or franchise tags but opted against it.

                                The Rams are early in talks with Chamberlain, who enjoyed the best season of his four-year NFL career in 2011 with career highs in starts (13), tackles (82), and sacks (two) while primarily playing weakside linebacker.

                                AMENDOLA TENDERED

                                Wide receiver Danny Amendola has been informed by the Rams that he will be tendered at a second-round level as a restricted free agent. Restricted free agents...
