If that's the case he'll have to take cortiszone shots. you can only safely take so many per year.

^ makes me wonder why he wouldn't take them before the biggest game of his life. That whole situation with him is so weird.

Rams sign Eric Weddle. Nice move. Still a very good player. He'll essentially replace free agent Joyner.

Joyner was one of the first players I had on my list to replace. I loved his aggressiveness and he was a good tackler for such a small safety but he just often seemed like he wasn't on the same page with the rest of the DBs.

Weddle: Defense    80.7    #10 S (good)

Joyner: Defense    73.1    #28 S (above average)

The Rams have re-signed Dante Fowler to a 1-year deal, right before free agency officially opens.

This is Crapoport, so I guess the dollar figure could be off, but $14MM does seem a little pricey for Dante Fowler, no? He was rated "above average" at 67.3 last year by PFF, but his stats don't jump off the page.

Last night, the #Rams agreed to terms with pass-rusher Dante Fowler Jr. on a 1-year deal worth $14M, source said. The former 1st rounder gets another year with the team that traded for him at roughly the amount that the fifth-year option would’ve been, then can hit the market.

Yep. 8-10M sounds better but then I didn't watch him that closely.

I just looked up what Spotrac says and they say 9.1M.

Though the Rams released Barron, Les Snead just said that they will continue to monitor his market. I guess it's not out of the question that he could return, at a reduced price.

We lost Rodger Saffold to the Titans and didn't re-sign John Sullivan. The Saffold loss really hurts as he and Whitworth were a force on the left side.

Whitworth's gonna be lining up with a bunch of young guys.

He signed a one year deal to be a backup QB for the Rams.

I'm sad to see Saffold go. He was one of the longer tenured vets on the team and went thru some rough years. Wish him the best.

I like the Bortles signing, he's more than serviceable. I have no idea how Mannion lasted 4 seasons. He showed NOTHING.

Need to shore up the LB spot and plug some holes in the OL and DL.

I do not like that deal for the Rams.....been ok with 1 year to see if he is kind of rejuvenated. He appeared on the path to being washed last season.

I agree that he didn't look good last season, and PFF's ratings bear that out. But I'm sure it's probably really a 1-year deal in terms of the guaranteed money, and I'm going to assume that they can easily move on after 1 season if they want to.

The Rams are also apparently counting on Joseph Notebook kicking inside to left guard to replace Saffold.

Malcolm Brown signed an offer sheet with Detroit. I hope the Rams don't match it and commit to a solid backup for TG. That backup needs to be step in and play three downs if needed.

Since the Lions’ offer sheet is worth $3.25MM over two years, with $1MM guaranteed and a $100K signing bonus, I don't have a big problem with matching it--but this depends on CJ and who else might be on the radar.

2019 schedule released

Other than Pittsburgh in early Nov, no cold weather games and we get the Saints in our house this time.

The schedule looks difficult in the first half of the season.

The Rams have now traded back twice. Are they acting as though they have no depth? Or is the back of draft somewhat comparable to the top?
