  Rams | Mike Karney critical of staff     Thu Feb 16, 08:27 AM

Free-agent FB Mike Karney (Rams) said via Twitter that strength coach Rock Gullickson and his assistant Adam Bailey were 'cancers to the locker room.' The coaches are holdovers from former head coach Steve Spagnuolo's staff and were retained by new head coach Jeff Fisher. Karney did not offer an explanation for his statements.

  Seahawks | Mike Karney on radar    Tue Aug 2, 05:03 PM

The Seattle Seahawks will visit with free-agent FB Mike Karney (Rams).

Footballguys view: With Josh McDaniels in St. Louis the team had no need for a fullback because of the system. Karney is a hard nosed blocker who can also catch a few passes out of the backfield.

  Broncos | Likely will be interested in Mike Karney    Sat Jun 11, 04:02 PM

The Denver Broncos likely will show interest in St. Louis Rams FB Mike Karney if the Rams release him after the lockout is over.

Footballguys view: It makes sense. Broncos head coach John Fox covets tough, versatile players like Karney (see Nick Goings, Brad Hoover) and Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has no use for fullbacks in his offense.

  Broncos | Possible interest in FB Mike Karney    Tue May 24, 12:14 PM

Jeff Legwold, from the Denver Post, believes the Broncos could possibly be interested in FB Mike Karney. With former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels now the Rams' offensive coordinator, they won't have much use for a fullback.

Footballguys view: Karney has already been informed by the Rams staff that he won't return in 2011. He could be a perfect fit with John Fox because of his size, leg drive, and versatility. The Broncos will use more two-back sets this season and need an upgrade at the fullback position.

  Broncos | May have room for FB Karney    Mon Feb 14, 06:12 PM

Bill Williamson, from ESPN.com, reports that the Broncos may be the landing spot for FB Mike Karney (Rams).

Footballguys view: Quality fullbacks are hard to find, and the position is a dying breed. However, new Broncos head coach John Fox uses a power running scheme and could have use for Karney.

The St. Louis Rams have informed FB Mike Karney that he will be released this offseason, reports Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
