The St. Louis Rams will visit with free agent C Hank Fraley to possibly add depth along their offensive line.
It should come as no surprise that Fraley is a former Eagle, playing there from 2001-2005, the same time Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur were coaching with that organization. Fraley has been with the Browns since 2006.
The Rams have added solid starters to the o-line, but depth in the middle, especially at center, is a critical need. C/G Mark Setterstrom was not tendered a RFA offer.
I can't speak to what kind of player Fraley is, though he seems like he'd be useful for depth, especially since he's an experienced center. We'll see what happens. I know there are plenty of people disappointed by the Rams free agent season haul, but finding quality depth this time of year is a smart way, if not very sexy, way to approach it.
PROGRAMMING NOTE: I had the chance to interview Rams DE Chris Long yesterday. We talked a little bit about Spagnuolo and Flajole's philosophy of the defense line, the situation with Leonard Little and James Hall and more. I'm transcribing the interview today, and plan to post it tomorrow. Stay tuned.
