  Rams | Pass protection key for Tre Mason    Thu Feb 26, 10:11 PM

St. Louis Rams RB Tre Mason didn't play until Week 6 of last season because of his issues with pass protection, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Footballguys view: Mason had a fine rookie season after starting slow. He finished the year with two 100-yard rushing games and five total touchdowns. Expect him to be the lead back for the Rams in 2015, and he has the potential to finish as a top-15 fantasy running back.

  Rams | Kendall Langford released    Thu Feb 26, 04:09 PM

St. Louis Rams DT Kendall Langford was released Thursday, Feb. 26, saving the team $6 million in salary cap space.

Footballguys view: The writing has been on the wall here since Langford lost his starting job in the fall to Aaron Donald. He should get plenty of interest on the open market now that he's been released.

  Rams | Jake Long likely to be released    Tue Feb 24, 09:20 PM

The St. Louis Rams are likely to released OT Jake Long this offseason for savings against the salary cap, according to beat writer Nick Wagoner.

Footballguys view: Long has a cap hit of $10.5 million this year, but there's only $2.5 million left in dead money. He's a talented player when healthy, but he's rarely been able to stay off the injury report. We'll see Greg Robinson take over at left tackle for the Rams.

  Rams | Sam Bradford trade unlikely    Tue Feb 24, 05:17 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford will probably not be traded this offseason despite interest from the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills. As of Tuesday, Feb. 24, no teams have contacted the Rams about trading Bradford.

Footballguys view: What would the Rams get for a guy who can't stay healthy? Bradford is likely an 'OK' starter, but he's barely been able to play as a pro because of various injuries. We're likely to see Bradford stay with the Rams for one more year. It's certainly a make-or-break year for the former number one pick.

  Rams | St. Louis will talk with Jameis Winston    Fri Feb 20, 05:10 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston is scheduled to meet with the St. Louis Rams during the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: They seem all in on Sam Bradford, but maybe they're looking to fall in love? We don't know what Bradford can do and on top of that, the guy cannot stay healthy. Would it be a shock if they selected a quarterback and moved on from Bradford? Not really. They'd still need to do the same for Winston that they need to do for any quarterback - get him some reliable weapons.

  Rams | HC in Sam Bradford's corner    Fri Feb 20, 02:30 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is coming back-to-back seasons of anterior cruciate ligament tears in his knees, but head coach Jeff Fisher is betting on Bradford to be the team's quarterback in 2015. Fisher said that Bradford remains ahead of schedule in his rehab and is working at the team's complex every day. Bradford won't be used any differently in training camp or the preseason in order to try and prevent another injury.

Footballguys view: It sounds like the Rams are all in on Bradford, so now the question is whether they can get him some better weapons to throw to. Bradford has had moments where he looked worthy of the No. 1 pick, but not consistently and he's been injured so often that we're at t he end of his contract with no real idea of his true worth.

  Rams | Chris Weinke hired    Thu Feb 19, 10:06 AM

Former QB Chris Weinke was hired by the St. Louis Rams as quarterbacks coach Thursday, Feb. 19.

Footballguys view: Weinke has been working with quarterbacks at the IMG Academy down in Florida. He's hired to work with Sam Bradford...or any young quarterback the Rams bring in this year. Weinke didn't work out as a pro QB, but he's certainly carved out a nice role as a QB coach.

  Rams | Losing Sam Bradford not the answer    Wed Feb 18, 04:04 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may still have a future with the Rams after general manager Les Snead said Wednesday, Feb. 18, that deleting Bradford is not the answer. Snead reiterated that eliminating Bradford was not the answer when asked about trade rumors involving the injury-prone quarterback.

Footballguys view: Bradford isn't the answer either. We would be absolutely floored if Bradford 1) stayed healthy, and 2) was worth a damn in 2015. He's "OK" as a starter, but Bradford is nothing to write home about...even when he is healthy.

  Rams | Sam Bradford can seek trade    Wed Feb 18, 02:10 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has permission to seek a trade. Bradford's agent can speak to other teams, but it will be difficult to find compensations to the Rams liking.

Footballguys view: The Rams have wasted too much time with Bradford. He's an okay starter, but he can't stay healthy. Bradford is likely to play one more year with the Rams, and it's certainly a "prove it" year for the rest of his career.

  Rams | Sam Bradford has no competition right now    Sat Feb 14, 02:17 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford isn't facing any competition currently, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Fisher had previously said that Bradford would have competition for the starting quarterback position, but said that competition isn't currently in the building.

Footballguys view: Yes, before the offseason gets underway, Bradford doesn't have any competition. However, we expect that to change as quickly as possible. Bradford has talent, but he's failed to stay healthy as a pro and he certainly hasn't played up to his large contract. The Rams need to have other/better options.

  Rams | Sam Bradford expected to return    Sat Feb 14, 08:54 AM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is expected to return to the team next season and likely will be the starter if he is healthy next season. The team would like him to restructure his contract in order to lower his salary cap hit, but there has not been much movement in those talks.

  Rams | Tavon Austin to be more involved    Fri Feb 13, 05:44 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Tavon Austin will be more involved in the offense next season, according to offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti.

Footballguys view: Former Rams OC Brian Schottenheimer never found a way to use Austin correctly. We saw flashes of what he could be, but Austin was never used consistently. It will be interesting to see if he can be more involved in 2015. Dynasty owners should perk up hearing this news.

  Rams | Rams to decide on Chris Givens' future    Sun Feb 8, 08:19 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Chris Givens is scheduled to have a base salary of $1.574 million with a cap count of $1.698 million.

Footballguys view: The team might deem it too much if Givens is the fifth receiver in a group with WRs Kenny Britt, Brian Quick, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. Releasing Givens would save the team $1.574 million.

  Rams | Isaiah Pead could be dumped by Rams    Sun Feb 8, 08:18 PM

The St. Louis Rams might consider releasing RB Isaiah Pead this offseason. The move would create just under $941,000 of additional cap space. The club has RBs Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham, Zac Stacy and Trey Watts on the roster, and Pead hasn't had much impact since being drafted in the second round in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: We're surprised Pead has made it this long with the Rams. That might have to do with him being a second-round pick a few years ago. Pead lacks the ability to make much of an impact as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. This free agent and draft class is incredibly strong at running back. If on the open market, we can't imagine Pead drawing a lot of attention.

  Rams | St. Louis might release Scott Wells    Sun Feb 8, 08:14 PM

The St. Louis Rams could released C Scott Wells this offseason if they decide to get younger at the center position. An outright release saves the team $3.5 million. He is due a $1 million roster bonus on the third day of the new league year which begins March 10.

  Rams | Sam Bradford may be asked to rework deal    Sun Feb 8, 01:18 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford may be asked to restructure his contract this offseason, so the team can reduce his $12.985 million salary for 2015.

Footballguys view: The Rams need to make this happen. Bradford has talent, but he's struggled to stay healthy during his pro career, and he's cost the Rams a ton of money. Bradford counts $16.58 million against the salary cap next season, but the team could save $12.985 in cap space if Bradford is released.

  Rams | Begin contract talks with Kenny Britt    Sun Jan 25, 07:19 AM

St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt and his agents have started contract talks with the team. Britt, who has been in St. Louis just one season, indicated he wanted to remain with the club past 2014.

Footballguys view: It's a good move for both sides. Britt still has fantastic talent, he just needs to stay healthy in order to play up to his potential. The Rams don't have great depth at the position, and they could really use a wideout like Britt in 2015. Now, they just need a quarterback to go along with him.

  Rams | Keeping eye on Shane Carden    Sun Jan 25, 07:13 AM

East Carolina QB Shane Harden is being looked at by the St. Louis Rams in the lead-up to the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Harden was at the 2015 Reese's Senior Bowl, but he failed to impress. Our very own Cecil Lammey and Matt Waldman report that Harden struggled with accuracy and decision making during the week of practice. Harden is likely to be a fourth- or fifth-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft. His upside is that of a career backup. The Rams need to aim quite a bit higher.

  Rams | Kenny Britt wants to stay in St. Louis    Tue Jan 6, 06:21 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt said he wants to return to St. Louis next year. Britt will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Footballguys view: Britt wants to stay with Jeff Fisher. A first-round pick by Fisher and the Tennessee Titans in 2009, Britt has struggled with injuries and inconsistencies as a pro. He recorded a career-high 48 catches with the Rams in 2014.

The St. Louis Rams signed OT Steven Baker, WR Emory Blake, OG Travis Bond, DB Christian Bryant, LB Marshall McFadden, DT Doug Worthington and WR Devon Wylie to Reserve/Futures contracts Tuesday, Dec. 30.

Footballguys view: Oh if Wylie could only stay healthy. Coming out of Fresno State, Wylie was impressive at the Shrine Game and reminded scouts of Wes Welker. However, (just like in college) Wylie has struggled with injuries as a pro.

  Rams | Rams want Sam Bradford back    Tue Dec 30, 06:42 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is wanted back by the team to compete for the starting quarterback position next season. However, head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear that nothing will be guaranteed for Bradford. Bradford continues to rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and he heads into an uncertain offseason. Fisher said the team plans to bring Bradford back at a reduced rate next year. He currently is scheduled to cost $16.58 million against the salary cap. Bradford plans to remain in St. Louis in the offseason to continue his rehab, and he said his knee feels better this time than the last time he had the same ailment.

  Rams | QB competition to come in St. Louis    Tue Dec 30, 04:20 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford won't be guaranteed the starting quarterback position next season as head coach Jeff Fisher made it clear Tuesday, Dec. 30, that there will be a quarterback competition in training camp.

Footballguys view: Good, this is what the Rams need to do. They need to find a true franchise quarterback and have him compete with Bradford for the starting job. Bradford has been 'ok' when healthy, but he's not been great and he's struggled to stay on the field.

  Rams | Sam Bradford making progress    Tue Dec 30, 04:09 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) said he's coming along fine in a press conference Tuesday, Dec. 30, and has even started running. Bradford tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the regular season.

Footballguys view: The Rams need to do something else here. Bradford has been okay when healthy, but he's struggled to stay healthy during his five-year pro career. We'll see if the Rams bring in another quarterback who can push him for (and perhaps win) the starting job.

St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) has begun range-of-motion exercises in his rehab following shoulder surgery. 'I'm doing range of motion right now, just trying to get that strength back,' Quick said. 'I'm using a little weight right now, a three-pound weight, just trying to get that strength back up.'

Footballguys view: Quick hasn't panned out the way anyone had thought he might but he's worth keeping an eye on in deep dynasty leagues. Make sure you aren't investing heavily of course.

  Rams | Sam Bradford still in team's plans    Thu Dec 11, 12:33 PM

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is still in the team's plans in 2015. The Rams still plan to add another quarterback in the offseason, but Bradford could still be the team's starter in Week 1 of the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: Um, okay. Bradford is a decent talent, but he's injured all the time. The team shouldn't be relying on him as anything more than a flier at the position. He has a $16.5 million cap number in 2015, but there's only $3.5 million in dead money remaining on his deal.
