The St. Louis Rams sit in the thick of a wild free agency period and training camp. More free agent rumors popped up last night with word that free agent RB Jerious Norwood was in town for a visit. Remember, visits don't always translate to signings, even in this shortened free agency period. Just ask Jason Snelling, or Brady Poppinga, who was in St. Louis on Sunday. Players come in for physicals and tryouts, an essential precursor to contract talks, only a fool would assume rumors and/or visits equal deals. That said, I'd like to see Norwood pass muster for the Rams. Stay tuned. We'll be all over it today.
Now, we turn to a heaping helping of hot steamy links. Mmmm mmm. Today should be a real treat for Marshall Faulk fans, with a dose of Hall of Fame memories. Check it out.

Cornerback adds veteran presence to secondary

Randy Moss Retires; St. Louis Rams Rumors Not Over Yet
Just because Randy Moss retired doesn't mean you aren't going to hear more rumors of him going to the St. Louis Rams. More good stuff from SBNation St. Louis.
Manny Lawson lands in Cincy
Former 49ers linebacker Manny Lawson signed a one-year deal with the Bengals. It's not remarkable so in the sense that he signed with Cincy, but more remarkable for the fact that San Francisco has done nothing in free agency this year.
Rookie free agent profile: Tyler Donahue, T, Bowling Green

Rams' Bartell praised for his generosity during lockout
Ron Bartell not only took the lead in organizing the Rams player workouts over the summer, he paid for them. The veteran's classy move shows just what a leader he's become on this team, after almost getting away to New Orleans in 2009 as a free agent.
