The Rams and the Salary Survey:  ESPN NFL Nation

Coming to this week's edition of ESPN The Magazine is the annual money issue, which takes a look at how dollars are being divvied up amongst teams and athletes.

In conjunction with SportingIntelligence, the Mag surveyed the landscape of 294 professional teams covering 15 leagues from seven sports worldwide with focus on how those teams are spending money and how that money is divvied up among the players on each roster.


In case you missed it yesterday, I highlighted a few big pass plays the Rams gave up through the first half of the 2013 season.  The Rams should have cornerback on their list of draft-day needs, but just when do they plan on addressing those needs?  Have a look at five guys they should be looking to sign.

CJ?K Strikes a Two Year Deal with the NY Jets:  NFL.com

Well, this marks the end of the Chris Johnson to the Rams talk...at least for now.  CJ?K may know Jeff Fisher, but a signing just wasn’t in the stars in 2014.  Look for Johnson to reunite with Fisher in 2016...you know, because he drafted him and that automatically links the two for life.

NFL Draft Grader - St. Louis Rams:  Pro Football Focus

PFF grades every Rams’ draft pick from 2009 to 2011.  Will the Rams have more grades in the green or red?  I fear you may already know the answer to that question...

The 49ers Reportedly Putting RB James on the Trading Block:  NFL.com

Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reported Wednesday that the 49ers are actively shopping LaMichael James, citing a league source. The Niners' second-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, James has been unable to crack a depth chart that has Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter above him. Marcus Lattimore -- recovered from knee surgery and set to make his pro debut -- could also leapfrog James.




You’ve seen about a million different Day 1 scenarios for the Rams.  Having two picks in the first round certainly gives them with some options.  What they will do, though, is anyones guess.  If you can prognosticate what they actually do, I’d like to think you’re also on your way to receiving a $100,000 check for guessing their entire schedule correctly.


It goes without saying that most view [or know] that Sammy Watkins and Mike Evans are this year’s top WR prospects.  That being said, there’s been enough coverage on those wideouts for you to know them like you’re besties.  Ramblin’ Fan takes a look at the next five guys.


NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Wednesday that the veteran wide receiver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks, according to a source close to the deal. The move comes on the same day Rice visited with the New York Jets.


As a quality lineman who has at times slipped from the headlines garnered by many of his offensive line counterparts in this year’s draft, Notre Dame’s Zack Martin has utilized his versatility in joining his position group as a likely first-round pick.


This article will look at the top candidates for St. Louis' No. 2 overall pick and assign odds for each player. The odds will be determined by the player's overall ranking, the value of the pick and St. Louis' overall roster needs. The last slide predicts odds for the Rams' second Round 1 pick at No. 13.


With Chris Johnson now off the market, the free agency pool for RB’s has officially gone dry.  That leaves a few of the NFL’s teams with a need at the  position and only the draft to fill them.  PFT mentions the Rams as one of those teams.  At what point in the draft do you see the Rams addressing depth at RB?
