There's a chance he could be signed after the draft for close to a minimum salary, but I don't think Jeff Fisher is a great fan of Haynesworth's.
In regards Janoris Jenkins and Michael Floyd, so far I don't sense that their off-field issues have hurt either player. But we won't know for sure unitl draft day. I don't think there's any way Floyd is available in the second round. Jenkins probably will go lower, but I still he he goes in the first as well.
As for Braylon Edwards, I'm not aware of any interest at this time. He has the same agent as Steve Smith (who signed with the Rams), so I would guess his name at least came up.
If you're asking which position I prefer at No. 6 overall, I still say take the wide receiver (Justin Blackmon) over the left tackle (Matt Kalil). Then again, I don't get a vote in the draft room.
I guess it depends how badly somebody wants the pick. I never would've thought the Rams would get three 1s and a 2 in exchange for the No. 2 overall pick with Washington. And of course, it depends on how far down the Rams are trading. Obviously, if you're trading down to 20 you expect more than if you're trading down to 10. But I would think the best bet to trade down would be if someone wants to move ahead of Miami for Ryan Tannehill, and if that's the case, that team might be talking to Jacksonville at No. 7 rather than the Rams at No. 6.
I don't know if "shopping" is the right way to put it. I certainly don't sense a "campaign" to move the pick kind of like there was with the No. 2 pick. But the phone lines are open at Rams Park. If I were picking and both players were available, I guess I'd be torn between Justin Blackmon and Trent Richardson, and would probably take Blackmon unless the scouting department had a much higher grade on Richardson.
Just remember, in Jeff Fisher, you have a head coach who loves to run the football. And who loves bigger backs.
It's not just you. Even with the signing of Jo-Lonn Dunbar from New Orleans, the Rams still have only four linebackers under contract. Most teams take 9 or 10 into training camp, and usually 6 or 7 into the regular season. So yes, the Rams need more bodies there. I think Lavonte David would be a good choice. He'd be a great value at the top of the third, but will he still be there at that point.
UPDATE; According to Kevin Demoff, the Rams have 2 jersey colors (blue and white) and 2 pants colors (blue and white). So the gold pants are history. By the way, Kevin says the throwback unis remain the same. (I think you have to stay with the same throwback styles for 5 years before you can change. And the Rams will be entering, I believe, the 4th year with these throwbacks.)
Should be out in a week or two. I think everyone gets at least one Thursday night game. And I think the London game would be prime time as well.
Don't hit "return" until after you've typed your entire question.
At for the "bottom up" issue, we don't have any control over that, but it reverses once the chat is complete.
If Amendola doesn't get an offer sheet from another club by the April 20 deadline he has two options: 1.) sign the Rams tender; 2.) Not play.
Brown is actually under contract for this season.
Just off the top of my head, I think there are some defensive linemen who could still be there, maybe someone such as Jerel Worthy, Kendall Reyes, and Brandon Thompson.
I would stay at No. 6 unless someone made an unbelievable offer. Again, I don't get a vote.
I really do think both should get in. I do think Bruce has a little more, I don't know what you'd call it, recognition among the nation's football media. But how do you keep Holt out? After all I believe he was the most productive wide receiver in the entire decade of the 2000s. But as slow as the Hall is in terms of voting in wide receivers, none of us may live long enough to see it happen.
Kirk in NC, we'll certainly have to ask Dunbar what he knows and when did he know it!
He played five seasons with Schottenheimer as his offensive coordinator, so I think they're doing more than kicking the tires. I wouldn't be surprised at all if Cotchery signed with the Rams.
My editors will be pleased.
The only other visit planned that I know of is Tennessee Titans DE Williams Hayes. He would be more like a third or fourth defensive end, and wouldn't cost much. I don't know if offensive guard Chilo Rachal (San Fran) or offensive tackle (Barry Richardson) are still in play. Both visited Rams Park prior to the owners meetings.
