Random Ramsdom 4/29: More on Jason Smith and the cap


For April, it's been a marathon of football lately, and we've only got a few days to catch our breath before the next minicamp that starts on Friday. Starting with some more insight on the Rams salary cap, here's a few items of note to start your morning.

Rams beat writer for the Post-Dispatch, Jim Thomas, gave a ballpark figure for what second overall draft pick OT Jason Smith's cap hit will likely be this year in yesterday's online chat. He estimates that Smith contract will entail a similar cap hit to Chris Long's deal from last season, which counted $2.9 million against the cap.

In the same chat session, Thomas predicts, and I would assume it's an informed prediction, that Smith and the Rams should be able to reach a deal in a timely manner, enough to keep him from missing team activities. There's plenty more information over there, so be sure to give it a read

Still in despair that the Rams didn't take a QB in the draft this year, a starting QB anyway? Don't worry. Here's one 2010 mock draft that predicts the Rams trading a fourth overall pick for the Lions first overall in order to take Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford. I don't see it.


Back at you later.
