Hey everybody! The Rams have been hosting a lot of free agents lately and a lot more will be coming in for visits. Right now the Rams have only signed one player, Cortland Finnegan. Expect that to change today and stay tuned to TST for more updates during the day. On to the links!
Edward Jones opted to keep the naming rights to the Edward Jones Dome for at least another 13 years. According to the Post-Dispatch...
Edward Jones will pay the Rams $42.3 million over the course of the 11-year agreement, the company announced in a release today. The original, 12-year naming-rights term cost the company $32.7 million. In addition to the Dome's name, the deal includes prominent indoor and outdoor advertising at the facility.
Adam Schein from Fox Sports had a very nice article about the Rams new direction. It's nice to know that football writers form the large sites are starting to notice all the positives happening with the Rams.
If you are a Rams fan, here's the beauty: You aren't close to being done yet. And, finally, you have the right football people in place making decisions.
Mike Sando wrote an update on what WRs are still available in free agency. Take a read y'all Brandon Lloyd still remains the top option on the market and the Rams are still interested in bringing him back. The level of interest is questionable as the Rams see Lloyd to be limited as only a deep threat who can get any yards after the catch.
Chris Long is happy, very happy.
