Hey everybody! Now that the Super Bowl is over the real season at Turf Show Times is about to begin, draft season. This is the time of year many of us writers look forward to. Instead of writing about how awful the team is, we get to write about how we believe the team can improve and get to play armchair GM everyday. We will have great content so be sure to stay tuned to TST for all your draft and off season news. On to the links.
The Rams are narrowing the field of candidates and seem to be close to hiring a GM according to Jim Thomas. Thomas also said that today the Rams are interviewing Tom Gamble from the 49ers which is likely the last interview. The Rams will probably have a new GM in place by next week, essentially completely the new regime.
Mike Sando took a look at who the upcoming FAs are for St. Louis. There are 20 players that are unrestricted free agents including Brandon Lloyd. There are only two restricted free agents, CJ Ah You and Danny Amendola.
In case you didn't see this yesterday from 3k, Jim Hasslet reportedly told one of the community members from the Redskins site, Hogs Haven, that the Redskins are interested in trading up for the number two pick and have already talked with Jeff Fisher about it. Hasslat also said that the Skins are interested in signing Matt Flynn, but they will make a run at getting Peyton Manning.
According to Dan Pompei of the National Football Post the Rams will be looking for "very much" to trade down in the draft. Don't be surprised if the Rams stay put at number 2 come draft time.
That's all for today. Have a good one and GO RAMS!
