With cap space nearly gone, is it a forgone conclusion to waive or trade Pace and Holt? With a possible 14 million cleared, by moving these players the Rams FO can create the cap space needed to address team needs.
Still needing a tough inside linebacker, a blocking FB (Weaver being sought), a run stuffer at DT, an additional T for the o line, and a back to help spell Jackson, the FO needs to figure where they can fill the needs. Can we address these needs through in house options, free agency, or draft? The line can be addressed with a big T pick of Eugene Monroe, but Aaron Curry could be the answer at MLB, while there are full backs in the draft Leonard Weaver really is a definitive blocking back, and what about the other issues. In house options on line include John Greco, who looked very solid in his last game against the Falcons, and there is the unkown Roy Schuening who was rated as one of the top interior lineman in last year's draft. One thing remains clear the Rams will need to still utilitze free agency to finish the improvements they want to make. This is all assuming that the Rams will use what is left of the cap to pickup Butler for SS. The one thing that so far has stuck out is the Rams are not nickling and diming what is important they have committed some serious funds already to address the most important needs and are taking pronounced and aggressive steps to solidify key positions, instead of trying to patchwork our team needs.
