Smith not interested in buying the Rams

Last Friday the Rams-for-sale saga took an interesting, hopeful (for those who'd like to see the team stay in STL anyway) turn when a report surfaced that FedEx founder and CEO Fred Smith had emerged as a potential buyer

Well, scratch that. A source connected to Smith told the Memphis Commercial Appeal that Smith was not interested in the Rams. As we pointed out last week, Smith never acknowledged being interested in the Rams; his name just popped up as a nice fit...probably floated by folks wanting to find some security for the Rams.

There's still a couple horses in this race with the Checketts group and Stan Kroenke. My money's still on Kroenke, but the race is far from over.
