    Good! A little surprised that it was only for one year. Hopefully Mark will finally be able to prove himself and remain further with the Rams. I think he'll end up as a good OL.

      welcome back Mark..with the signing of Fraley he can settle back into his more natural role of OG..hope he can put the injuries behind him and contribute to the level the majority of us know he can when healthy.
      will give us some flexibility in the later rounds of the draft now...they could still pick up a Brandon Carter but the need isn`t as great as it was and can spend that pick on an RT..should they decide that Greco is gonna remain an OG.

        I'm sure the one year deal was because of his past injuries. Wouldn't want a guy who gets injured every time he seems to get playing time signed to a 3 year deal now would ya?

        That being said, hopefully he can stay healthy if called upon as we need all the help we can get.

            Cool. The more the merrier along this OL. Although he's been injured, Setterstrom has experience in the system and has shown promise when on the field.

              Rams not offering tender to Setterstrom
              by shower beers
              The Rams will not extend a restricted free agent tender to OG Mark Setterstrom.
              Setterstrom, 26, has been a season-ending injury waiting to happen since entering the league, so the move isn't surprising. The Rams are hoping to re-sign the '06 seventh-round pick to a deal cheaper than the $1.176M tender.

              St. Louis Rams Mark Setterstrom willing to do whatever's necessary to earn spot

              Felled twice by major knee injuries, Rams offensive lineman Mark Setterstrom has established modest goals for the 2009 season.

              "I just want to contribute in whatever fashion that is. I just want to help this team to be a better team. I just want to be a part of the team," he said.

              Setterstrom's No. 1 priority is staying healthy. Nearly two years have passed since his improbable rise into a starting role was scuttled by a double-dose of bad luck.

              Setterstrom, a 6-foot-4, 314-pounder from the University of Minnesota, was a seventh-round draft pick in 2006. He was among the inactives for the first nine games of his rookie season, finally suiting up for the 10th in a reserve role.

              As injuries ripped through the line, Setterstrom found himself starting at left guard the following week. He remained there for the rest of the year, then re-earned the job heading into the '07 season.

              In Week 3, while blocking on a field-goal attempt, Setterstrom tore a ligament and suffered cartilage damage in his left knee. He had surgery and was placed on injured reserve.

              After months of tedious and painful rehab, Setterstrom arrived at training camp last summer as the first-team right guard. But in the second preseason game, vs. San Diego, he fractured his right kneecap. Again, his season was over.

              And again, he faced a scalpel and more rehab. Still, Setterstrom insisted that he never was tempted to ask, "Why me?"

              "I just move on, and that's the truth. You can't be looking back; you've got to look forward," he said during a break in organized team activities this week at Rams Park. "If I'm sitting here feeling sorry myself, then I probably wouldn't be on this roster. I'm just glad to have another opportunity."

              As Setterstrom toiled to get his knee back into shape, the structure of the Rams was changing shape. In addition to major shifts in front-office personnel, new head coach Steve Spagnuolo arrived with a mostly new staff.

              In early April, with the first of three minicamps approaching, Setterstrom went to Spagnuolo.

              "He told me he was uncertain about his knee," Spagnuolo said. "What he was concerned about was, a new staff, I'm not a hundred percent, I'm not going to impress."

              But after Setterstrom turned in a full workload, Spagnuolo was plenty impressed. "He fought through it," Spagnuolo said. "Now, it's all smoothing out a bit."

              The Rams are set at guard, with Jacob Bell and Richie Incognito. Setterstrom, 25, is trying to nail down a spot as a multipurpose backup. He's spent the offseason at center, a position he has never played.

              "I think it's a good opportunity to grow in my skill set," he...

              Have we tendered Cog, Victor, and Setterstrom yet?
              by onslaught11
              Have we made a tender offer to our RFA: Adenyaju, Setterstrom, and Incognito?

              It would be a shame if we didn't. By tendering them, we would get a draft pick if we don't match the salary of another team offer.

              Cog would get a 3rd, Victor a 4th, and Setterstrom a 7th.

              I believe the RFA tender is something like 800K for each of them. I could be wrong with the number but it would not be much more for these role player to keep on the team.
