Rams to meet with CFL sack leader this week

New, comments

Hmmm, is there a conspiracy afloat? The links between the St. Louis Rams and Canada keep growing. First, the Rams have draft Canadian free safety Oshiomogho Atogwe. Then, a buyer with Toronto connections enters the bidding process to own the team, and now the Rams are scheduled to meet with the CFL's sack leader, DE Ricky Foley. Someone call the kids from South Park, or the team led by John Candy in Michael Moore's 1995 flop Canadian Bacon

Foley collected 12 sacks last season playing for the BC Lions. The Jets recently met with Foley, and he's on the agenda for the Patriots tomorrow with his Rams meeting scheduled some time this week. The Packers also have interest. 

Which of these things is not like the other? All of those teams, except for the Rams, run a 3-4 defense, and would use the 6'4" 245 lbs Foley as an pass rushing OLB. How would he fit with the Rams? I suppose they're thinking of Foley as an OLB as well, probably on the weakside.

Maybe the team can use their recent Canadian connections to lure Foley to camp, eh? I admit to needing another Canada joke besides "eh," eh?
