After the news of the patriots intending to release the OLB broke out a few fans on this site (you know who you are) Wondered if Banta-Cain could be a cheap, reliable, and quick fix to the Rams current linebacker situation. It turns out according to NFL.com that Banta-Cain will be recovering from a surgery to fix an abdominal strain he suffered last season. Banta-Cain (31) who posted 45 tackles and 5 sacks said he was fine untill he re-aggravated the injury by increasing the intensity of his personal workouts. Weather this was an additional reason for the Patriots to release the veteran linebacker is unknown.
What ever the reason I still think Banta-Cain could serve a purpose for us. There are not reports of the Rams having interest in Banta-Cain at least not that I know of. If the Rams did have interest this may have negatively effected it. I would like to know if any of you fans would mind seeing Banta-Cain playing for the Rams regardless of his injuries.
