Call it a preview of the off-season. With the Rams waiting to make headway with free agent S James Butler and the cramming for the draft next month, it's shaping up to be a fairly quiet weekend, compared to the rapid fire pace of last weekend. Some items of note this morning:
- The Rams had some interest in FB Heath Evans, but the former Patriot signed with the Saints yesterday. Seattle's Leonard Weaver is an intriguing possibility for a FB, but if the team just wants a blocker, might as well pick one up in the 6th or 7th round of the draft, where you can get a guy ready to open lanes and pay him less than $100K.
- Holt to Chicago? It's a possibility to keep an eye on. If that does happen, the Rams would get a chance to play their former mainstay, as we play the Bers in Chicago this season.
- Mizzou defensive players worked out for scouts this week, with S William Moore improving on a relatively uninspiring showing at the Combine last month.
- Nothing moving on the James Butler front yet. It's obvious he's not going back to the Giants, who signed CC Brown to round out their safeties this week.
