There's nothing like the thrill of free agents. Players, not wanted by their previous teams are bid on with insane amounts of cash hoping to instantly fill holes and problem areas.
It's here again and the Rams are looking to be active. With holes on all over the team, they could be looking to add quite a few players.
Of note? Geoff Schwartz and Jarius Byrd. The Rams are looking at both (among others) and both look to be big contract signings. With a new defensive coordinator and a QB coming back from an ACL tear, they could potentially make a huge difference to the offensive line and secondary, respectively.
Here we go.
