  Rams | Andrus Peat won't slip past St. Louis?    Thu Apr 23, 10:47 PM

Stanford OT Andrus Peat won't slip past the St. Louis Rams with the No. 12 in the 2015 NFL Draft and could go even earlier, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Peat is arguably the best offensive tackle in this draft class, and he could easily be a top-10 pick. He's got the proper size, hand usage and athleticism to develop into a fine left tackle.

  Rams | Meeting with two OT prospects    Wed Apr 22, 12:40 PM

Pittsburgh OT T.J. Clemmings and Miami (Fla.) OT Ereck Flowers are scheduled to meet with the St. Louis Rams Wednesday, April 22.

Footballguys view: The Rams have thrown a lot of resources at their offensive line, but it still is basically in shambles heading into the 2015 campaign, which should give Tre Mason owners pause. Clemmings is a potentially strong right tackle that needs development. Flowers is flawed as a pass blocker, but teams love his run blocking. Both should be gone by the end of the second round.

  Rams | Sign several free agents    Mon Apr 20, 05:23 PM

St. Louis Rams OG Brandon Washington signed his exclusive rights tender Monday, April 20. Restricted free-agents QB Austin Davis, TE Cory Harkey and S Rodney McLeod were also re-signed.

Footballguys view: Davis is the player we'd like to highlight here. With all the changes at quarterback this offseason, we should see Davis compete for the backup job behind Nick Foles. He'll compete with Case Keenum and maybe a draft pick for the right to the second-string job.

  Rams | Bud Dupree visits St. Louis    Fri Apr 17, 10:20 PM

Kentucky DE/LB Bud Dupree visited the St. Louis Rams Friday, April 17.

Footballguys view: Dupree is a freakish athlete who has drawn comparisons to Jamie Collins (Patriots) in the scouting community. He has the burst to get after the quarterback, and he's smooth enough to cover in open space. Look for Dupree to come off the board in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft.

  Rams | St. Louis hosts Brett Hundley    Fri Apr 17, 09:56 PM

UCLA QB Brett Hundley worked out for the St. Louis Rams Friday, April 17.

Footballguys view: Hundley is one of the most intriguing prospects in this draft class. He's crazy athletic and has a strong arm, reminding some in the scouting community of a young Randall Cunningham. Hundley holds onto the ball too long as a passer and needs to show improved ability to read defenses as he drops back.

  Rams | Sean Mannion works out    Fri Apr 17, 04:42 PM

Oregon State QB Sean Mannion was scheduled to work out for the St. Louis Rams Friday, April 17, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Mannion is a big pocket passer who should come off the board on the last day of the draft. He's no immediate starter, but Mannion does have some tools that some team may try to develop.

  Rams | Have more pre-draft visits scheduled    Thu Apr 16, 06:36 PM

Louisville OT Jamon Brown, Arizona State OG Jamil Douglas, Duke OG Laken Tomlinson, Florida OG Tre Jackson, Hobart OG Ali Marpet and Stanford OT Andrus Peat are all scheduled to visit the St. Louis Rams prior to the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Notice a trend there? That's a lot of offensive line players for a team in desperate need of them. Expect the Rams to go hard to fix that offensive line.

  Rams | St. Louis hosts Marcus Mariota    Thu Apr 16, 06:17 PM

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota worked out for the St. Louis Rams Thursday, April 16.

Footballguys view: Are the Rams just kicking tires or are they not sure about Nick Foles? Given Foles' 2014...that isn't a bad idea. The team could surprise some and actually be in the market for a quarterback...although next year's draft class is much better at the position.

  Rams | Dorial Green-Beckham visits Rams    Thu Apr 16, 02:08 PM

Oklahoma WR Dorial Green-Beckham visited with the St. Louis Rams in the first week of April.

Footballguys view: Green-Beckham has a ton of talent but a penchant for trouble off the field. The Rams need receiver help, but they might want to pass on a guy who was kicked off a team and has had multiple incidents involving drugs. He has top-10 talent, but Green-Beckham may fall to the second round because of character concerns.

  Rams | St. Louis met with DeVante Parker    Thu Apr 16, 02:07 PM

Louisville WR DeVante Parker met with the St. Louis Rams Wednesday, April 15. He is considered the third-best wide receiver in this year's draft behind Alabama WR Amari Cooper and West Virginia WR Kevin White. The Rams also had a pre-draft visit with Cooper in the first week of April, and White will visit with the Rams next week.

Footballguys view: Now that the Rams have Nick Foles, they need to give him weapons. There is a good chance both Kevin White and Amari Cooper could be off the board by the time they pick at 10th overall. If that's the case, Parker is a good third option. Parker has good height, speed and great ball skills on deep targets. He'd be a potent weapon for Foles.

  Rams | Benardrick McKinney visits    Wed Apr 15, 07:24 AM

Mississippi State LB Benardrick McKinney visited the St. Louis Rams on Tuesday, April 14.

Footballguys view: McKinney is a hard-nosed player who arrives at the ball with natural violence. He has a great nose for the ball, and McKinney does a good job when scraping and flowing to the play. He's likely to be a late first- or early second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

  Rams | Looking at other college QBs    Sun Apr 12, 07:04 AM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are on the St. Louis Rams radar screen, but the Rams are also looking at Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson, UCLA QB Brett Hundley, and Oregon State QB Sean Mannion.

Footballguys view: That's a wise idea for the Rams. This isn't a strong quarterback class, but they might grab a developmental guy like one of the players listed. We'd like Grayson best in that position. Yes, Hundley is the better athlete and he has a stronger arm. Grayson knows how to go through progressions, worked from under center or the shotgun, uses his eyes to manipulate the defense and was allowed to call audibles at the line of scrimmage. If you want a smart and accurate quarterback, then Grayson is the perfect developmental guy to target in the second or third round.

  Rams | St. Louis to work out Marcus Mariota    Sat Apr 11, 01:27 PM

Oregon QB Marcus Mariota will work out for the St. Louis Rams next week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Mariota is an option for the Rams even though they traded for Nick Foles earlier this year. Foles feels like a temporary player for the Rams. Mariota could be added at 10th overall in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft.

Link to story


  Rams | Jameis Winston will work out for Rams    Sat Apr 11, 01:24 PM

Florida State QB Jameis Winston is scheduled to work out for the St. Louis Rams next week, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Unless the Rams move up from 10th to 1st overall, we don't see Winston as an option for them. We feel that Winston will be the top pick for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

  Rams | Kevin White to meet with STL    Thu Apr 9, 12:25 PM

West Virginia WR Kevin White is scheduled to meet with the St. Louis Rams before the 2015 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The St. Louis Rams are in need (again) of a top wide receiver (again) and White is a tremendous option for them if he is there with the No. 10 pick overall. White has tremendous talent and went through quite the transformation at West Virginia, going from raw and unsure to a top-flight, confident receiver. He's also strong - 23 reps on the bench at the Combine--so he can help carry a lot of boxes if/when the team moves to Los Angeles.

  Rams | Lance Kendricks took less from STL    Tue Apr 7, 01:44 AM

St. Louis Rams TE Lance Kendricks took a slightly smaller offer to remain with the Rams rather than join the Atlanta Falcons during the offseason.

Footballguys view: Kendricks cited his closer relationship with tight ends coach Rob Boras and promises of an expanded role in the passing game as his reasons for staying.

  Rams | STL expecting more from Kenny Britt    Sun Apr 5, 01:21 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt is expected to produce more in the passing game next season, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. 'I can kind of share the same issue Kenny does and that's we think he can be better. I think he can do better. He thinks he can be better. He thinks he can be more productive. He's looking forward to the offensive changes. I think yeah, we should see a lot more out of Kenny this year,' Fisher said.

Footballguys view: Keep dreaming Fisher. There's no question Britt has the natural talent, but something is ALWAYS preventing him from playing up to his potential. Whether it's injury or motivation or off-field trouble, Britt has only shown flashes of what he can do as a pro. The team is considering a wide receiver like Kevin White (West Virginia) or Amari Cooper (Alabama) in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft.

  Rams | Benny Cunningham on third down    Fri Apr 3, 08:29 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Benny Cunningham will continue to be the third-down back in 2015.

Footballguys view: That move makes a lot of sense for the Rams. Cunningham is a capable receiver out of the backfield, and he can make defenders miss in the open field.

  Rams | Zac Stacy likely No. 2    Fri Apr 3, 08:28 AM

St. Louis Rams RB Zac Stacy will likely be the backup to RB Tre Mason in 2015.

Footballguys view: This is the best move for the Rams. Mason proved that he should be the lead back last year, and he's got explosive playmaking ability. Stacy gives the team quality depth at the position, but he's not as dynamic as Mason.

  Rams | Bryce Petty to meet with Rams    Thu Apr 2, 09:44 AM

Baylor QB Bryce Petty has a meeting set up with the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: Yes, the Rams traded for Nick Foles...but that doesn't mean he's locked in as their QB of the future. Petty is a developmental quarterback who needs a lot of work. Any team interested in his should be looking at him as a mid-round pick.

Link to story


  Rams | Amari Cooper visits St. Louis    Wed Apr 1, 04:30 PM

Former Alabama WR Amari Cooper visited the St. Louis Rams Wednesday, April 1. The Rams possess the 10th overall pick in this year's draft.

Footballguys view: Cooper is one of our favorite wide receivers in this draft class. Had he come out last year, we would have ranked him fourth in that all-time class behind Sammy Watkins, Odell Beckham and Mike Evans. Cooper is an elite-level route-runner with the speed to attack a defense vertically. He has the nuance of a 10-year pro, and the ability to turn short passes into long gains. Cooper is likely to be the top wideout drafted, and he should be a top-10 pick.

  Rams | Tim Barnes back with St. Louis    Mon Mar 30, 09:22 PM

Free-agent C Tim Barnes agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams Monday, March 30. He is expected to sign Tuesday, March 31. It's a one-year deal with a maximum value of $1 million.

Footballguys view: The Rams did not tender Barnes as a restricted free agent, allowing him to hit the open market. The Chiefs showed a bit of interest, but Barnes decided to stay with the Rams. At the end of the 2013 season, Barnes started four games in place of an injured Scott Wells at center. Barnes has appeared in 45 games for the Rams over the last three seasons while mostly playing special teams.

  Rams | St. Louis intends to draft a QB    Fri Mar 27, 01:14 PM

St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher said it's the team's intention to draft a quarterback in this year's draft, despite trading for QB Nick Foles in the offseason. Florida State QB Jameis Winston and Oregon QB Marcus Mariota are expected to be off the board when the Rams pick with the 10th overall pick in the first round, but the Rams could also trade up to take one of them. The Rams could also look at the second tier of quarterbacks in this class, which includes Baylor QB Bryce Petty, UCLA QB Brett Hundley, Oregon QB Sean Mannion and Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson. Petty indicated that he has a visit planned with St. Louis. Rams QBs Austin Davis and Case Keenum will compete for the backup job, and the loser might be on the street if the Rams draft another quarterback.

Footballguys view: The quarterbacks outside of the top-2 have a ton of question marks. We like Hundley and Grayson best here...but for different reasons. Hundley is a remarkable athlete with a strong arm, but he needs to learn how to go through progressions as a passer. Grayson uses his eyes to manipulate the defense, has a strong enough arm to make every throw but there are some mechanical issues to clean up.

  Rams | Brian Quick progressing    Thu Mar 26, 06:49 PM

St. Louis Rams WR Brian Quick (shoulder) is making progress in recovering from a torn rotator cuff and separated shoulder he suffered last October. Head coach Jeff Fisher has described Quick's injuries as significant and has not disclosed any timetable in regards to Quick's return. Fisher did say that Quick is coming along after a difficult time during the early stages of rehabilitation.

Footballguys view: Quick was such a disappointment for most of his career, but last season he started to flash his potential. Over the first five games of 2014, Quick had 21 catches and three receiving touchdowns. If healthy, Quick should be able to pick up where he left off.

  Rams | Nick Foles didn't see trade coming    Fri Mar 20, 11:33 AM

St. Louis Rams QB Nick Foles said he didn't know the Philadelphia Eagles were looking to trade him, despite rumors swirling about their intentions, and the first time he learned about the move was the moment Eagles head coach Chip Kelly called him to say Foles had been dealt to the Rams.

Footballguys view: He'll be alright. In fact, Foles is a better fit for the Rams offense than he is the Eagles offense. We'll see how he works in a more traditional offense in 2015.

  Rams | Jake Long could return    Mon Mar 16, 02:16 AM

Free-agent OL Jake Long (Rams) could be back as the team's right tackle on a shorter deal that would pay less money. Any decision to sign Long to a new deal would not likely come until after the NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: The team will use Greg Robinson as their left tackle regardless of Long coming back. He's not the player he used to be, and Long struggles to stay healthy each season.

  Rams | Kenny Britt can void deal    Sat Mar 14, 11:25 AM

St. Louis Rams WR Kenny Britt could void his contract after only one season if he performs well enough during the 2015 season.

Footballguys view: We'd be shocked if he was able to void this deal. Talent is no question with Britt, but staying focused and staying healthy have been problems throughout Britt's pro career.

  Rams | Kenny Britt re-signs with Rams    Fri Mar 13, 10:14 PM

Free-agent WR Kenny Britt is coming back to the St. Louis Rams on a two-year, $14 million deal with $4.3 million guaranteed.

Footballguys view: Britt had a career-high 48 catches last year, and he played a full 16 games for only the second time in his pro career. We'll see if he can keep trending upwards now that he's decided to stay with the Rams. We'll also see how he works with new quarterback Nick Foles. Britt is supremely talented, but he's rarely played up to that potential.

  Rams | Joseph Barksdale still an option    Fri Mar 13, 05:43 PM

Free-agent OT Joseph Barksdale (Rams) is still receiving interest from the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: Barksdale is one of the best remaining right tackles on the open market. In addition to playing tackle, he can move inside to guard.

  Rams | Nick Fairley joins St. Louis    Fri Mar 13, 12:10 PM

Free-agent DT Nick Fairley (Lions) agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams Friday, March 13.

Footballguys view: The Rams continue to add talent to their defense this offseason. Fairley has never played up to his potential as a pro--but the raw talent is certainly there. If he can stay healthy and motivated, then Fairley will give the Rams yet another player who can make opposing quarterbacks feel uncomfortable.

  Rams | Akeem Ayers joins St. Louis    Thu Mar 12, 09:48 PM

Free-agent LB Akeem Ayers (Patriots) has signed a two-year contract with the St. Louis Rams worth $6 million with $3 million guaranteed, according to a league source.

Footballguys view: Originally a second-round pick for the Titans in 2011, Ayers did a good job as a part-time player for the Patriots last year. There are a few coaches on the staff that have familiarity with Ayers from his time with the Titans, and they'll know how to get the best out of him.

  Rams | Nick Fairley to visit    Thu Mar 12, 12:30 PM

Free-agent DT Nick Fairley (Lions) will visit with the St. Louis Rams.

Footballguys view: Fairley has always had potential, but the big defensive lineman has never played up to it. He needs a fresh start, and that's what he's going to get since the Lions declined to pick up his fifth-year option. Fairley is a disruptive player inside, and he can get interior pressure on the quarterback. Staying healthy and motivated have been problems for him. With the Rams, Fairley could work well in a rotation.

  Rams | Kenny Britt expected back with Rams    Wed Mar 11, 06:47 PM

Free-agent WR Kenny Britt (Rams) is expected to re-sign with the St. Louis Rams soon, in the opinion of NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.

Footballguys view: Brian Quick, Stedman Bailey, and Britt would split the somewhat meager production at the wide receiver position for the Rams. Lance Kendricks and Jared Cook will also get a good share of targets as one of the highest paid TE duos in the league, so the fantasy prospects in the Rams passing game aren't exactly bright.

  Rams | Nick Foles officially acquired by STL    Tue Mar 10, 06:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has officially been acquired by the St. Louis Rams. The Rams also receive a 2015 sixth-round draft pick and a 2016 second-round draft pick.

Footballguys view: Foles will run a more traditional offense under Rams head coach Jeff Fisher. The offensive line is a work in progress and Foles isn't known to be that mobile anyway. It could be a rough year for the young quarterback, and his fantasy stock is trending down.

  Rams | Lance Kendricks re-signs with St. Louis    Tue Mar 10, 06:19 PM

Free-agent TE Lance Kendricks (Rams) has agreed to terms with the St. Louis Rams on a four-year deal worth around $18.5 million.

Footballguys view: That's a pretty healthy contract for a player who has had a disappointing pro career. He was supposed to be the centerpiece of the Josh McDaniels offense years ago, but Kendricks failed to play up to his potential. Fantasy owners won't be looking to Kendricks for much help in 2015.

  Rams | Acquire Case Keenum    Tue Mar 10, 05:47 PM

Houston Texans QB Case Keenum has been traded to the St. Louis Rams Tuesday, March 10, in exchange for a 2016 seventh-round draft pick, according to sources.

Footballguys view: The Rams get a backup for Nick Foles. Keenum will battle Austin Davis for the QB2 job in 2015.

  Rams | Nick Foles expected to join Rams    Tue Mar 10, 04:07 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is close to being acquired by the St. Louis Rams in exchange for QB Sam Bradford, according to sources. The Rams will also receive draft-pick compensation.

Footballguys view: The Eagles and Rams are switching quarterbacks here. Bradford failed to stay healthy and play up to his potential with the Rams, and he needed a fresh start. His accuracy on intermediate routes is exactly what the Eagles need at the position. Foles gets a fresh start in a more traditional offense with the Rams.

  Rams | Stefen Wisniewski may be option    Mon Mar 9, 07:43 PM

Oakland Raiders impending free-agent C Stefen Wisniewski has received interest from the St. Louis Rams.

  Rams | Jake Long, Scott Wells cut    Mon Mar 9, 06:41 PM

St. Louis Rams OT Jake Long and C Scott Wells have been informed that they have been released.

St. Louis Rams restricted free-agent QB Austin Davis received a tender offer at the minimum level Friday, March 6. The Rams get matching rights, but no compensation if Davis signs elsewhere.

Footballguys view: Davis stays with the Rams....but they need more (and better) help at the quarterback position. Sam Bradford is not willing to restructure his deal, and he's not an exciting starting option anyway. We have heard little buzz about the Rams trading for Jay Cutler, but that is not out of the question.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford has been reticent to take a pay cut from the $16.58 million he counts against the 2015 salary cap.

Footballguys view: LOL. Why would he want to take a pay cut? He's only lived up to his large contract....no wait...it's the exact opposite. Bradford has struggled on the field, and he's struggled to stay on the field with the Rams. He's in a make-or-break season with the Rams this year. Bradford should kick back some of the money this year to help out the team.

  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.
