The Rams Number 1 Offseason Target is..(well should be) is..

Jairus Byrd. Safety from the Buffalo Bills.

There are many talented players the Rams could use this offseason, but i think the Rams should go after Byrd. He is a very skilled player and would make our secondary even better. Imagine Finnegan, Jenkins and Byrd? That's scary. Quintin Mikell is a solid player but is getting old, Byrd would provide a long term answer at safety as he is only 26. As I mentioned earlier there is alot of talented free agents who the rams could use, but Byrd is our best chance IMO. Here are some notable players:

Jake Long, OT, Dolphins-Probably the best OT in the league. Would love for the Rams to get him, but no way Miami lets him walk.

Mike Wallace, WR, Steelers-Would be a great addition to the struggling Rams offense, but he's gonna want a big price. It's definitely possible though.

Dwayne Bowe, WR, Chiefs-Again, another WR that would really help the offense, but Bowe is too inconsistent and drops easy passes. We've already seen too much of that.

Duane Brown, OT, Texans-Another talented tackle the Rams should go after. Gotta protect Bradford.

Others-Greg Jennings, Victor Cruz(I believe, but restricted I think), Anthony Spencer, Ryan Clady.

The reason I like Byrd so much is that he is young and talented and can make big plays(see Bills at Cardinals).

Everyone I mentioned would be fantastic additions, but Byrd makes the most sense. We have a real need at safety. The draft this year is rich with with O-lineman(Joeckel, Warmack, Aboushi, Cooper, Jones, Faulk)which I think is the most important thing to upgrade this offseason. I also agree we need a true number 1 receiver but the draft also has a ton of talent at the position(Allen, Woods, Hunter, Williams, Hopkins). We have two first round picks which i believe should be used on these positions to upgrade the offense. The only safety in this year's draft that I like is Eric Reid, but I think he will be gone after round 1, and I don't want to spend a first rounder on a safety. This is why I like Byrd so much, he is young, but still has valuable experience and talent.

So who do you think we should go after?

Let me know what ya think! Thanks for reading!
