NFL Free Agents: Rams Working On Offensive Line

After a quiet week, the St. Louis Rams reeled in another free agent on Thursday. The team signed offensive tackle Quinn Ojinnaka, according to Jim Thomas, while a handful of free agent linemen visited Rams Park.

No free agent receivers were in the lot on Thursday, but the linemen in the house make for some interesting discussion.

Qjinnaka signed a one-year deal with the Rams. Does that name sound familiar? It should. He was with the Rams in training camp last year, hitting the street as one of the last group of players to be cut. A fifth-round pick of the Falcons' in 2006, he was traded to the Patriots in 2010 for a seventh-round pick. The Colts picked him up as a reserve after the Rams cut him.

The most interesting name of the bunch at Rams Park was 49ers free agent guard Chilo Rachal. He lost his starting role in San Francisco after three games last season. He drew three flags in a Week 3 game against Cincinnati, and never started again.

In 2010, Rachal was one of the top guards in the league. According to Pro Football Focus, Rachal had an overall grade of 13.6 and a run blocking grade of 12.3. Just 26, you have to think the potential is still there, waiting to be extracted by Jeff Fisher's coaching staff. Depending on what his asking price is, he could be a good pick up for a team in need of a guard.

Jets guard Robert Turner was in town too.

Saints linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar visited the Rams as well. According to PFF, he had the worst grade of any Saints defensive player last season, a -26.3. The year before he graded out on the positive side of the ledger at 5.0.
