Former Rams GM Billy Devaney Thanks Fans, Bids Farewell

Former St. Louis Rams General Manager Billy Devaney released a statement on Monday, following his firing by the team. Here' the statement from Devaney who bid St. Louis a fond farewell today. Opinions about the direction of Rams over the last three years, Devaney was a solid guy. I remember him taking time beyond his scheduled interview time at the Combine last year to talk more, a move he didn't have to make.

I want to thank so many people for my time here in St. Louis. While certainly disappointed in our record, I wouldn't trade that time for anything. This is truly a special place.

I thank old and new friends made. I thank Stan Kroenke, Chip Rosenbloom, Lucia Rodriguez and the entire Rams organization. I wish you all much success. I thank all Rams fans. You are really great, great fans.

To all in St. Louis, I'll meet you further on up the road. Cheers!

As for what's next for Devaney, I suspect he can land on his feet in another personnel department. Personally, I think he'd be a much better broadcaster or studio analyst than a lot of the former front office guys you see on the tube.
