Props to quick on the draw TST reader jroman for sending word of the Rams swap for Detriot Lions DE James Hall.
Here's the text from the ProFootballTalk.com report:
The Lions had been trying to trade Hall for the past couple of weeks, and most likely would have cut him if a deal had not been worked out.
Hall had a stellar 2005 season, posting 11.5 sacks and 59 total tackles while forcing 3 fumbles. Last season, playing in just 7 games after going on IR with a shoulder injury, he registered 5 sacks. He's 30 years old and has 8 years in the league, all with Detroit. He'll be nice complement to Little.
I'm also guessing that the Rams will be less likely to take a DE in the first round of the draft, Adam Carriker for instance. Thus, I'd look for them to take either a DT or a WR, or possibly a stud LB.
