Per Rotoworld:

 

The Rams are reportedly finalizing a deal with free agent DT Fred Robbins.

Reuniting with coach Steve Spagnuolo? The Rams aim to get bigger upfront, and Robbins (6'4/325) would provide a presence at the 3-technique tackle. If healthy, Robbins would be a boon to the team's run defense.

Yet another signing of a former Giant or Eagle.  I like the signing, but I still can't stand how we only go after players who were formerly on the Giants and Eagles.  There is plenty of teams out there that have let go solid talent but we won't go after anyone who wasn't on one of those teams.  Fred Robbins, Giant.  AJ Feely, Eagle.  James Butler, Giant.  Douzable, Giant.  Lajuan Ramsey, Eagle.  Brandon Gibson, Eagle.  Danny Amendola, Eagle.  And I'm probably missing some.  I'm not saying these guys are bad signings, I just think if we looked in other places we could find just as many other good, and maybe better players.  Its almost like we won't even look at players from other teams.  I understand coaches want to get their former players, but they appear to not even be interested in anyone else. 
Aside from that rant, Robbins should be a solid addition to our D-line, even though he is getting up their in age.  This also may be another sign that we are not going DT and are going QB.
