The St. Louis Rams have tendered an offer to DT Clifton Ryan at the second-round level. The move pays the fifth round pick from 2007 a one-year salary of $1.684 million. The move shows just how highly the Rams think of Ryan's ability.
DE Victor Adeyanju also got an offer at the fourth-round level, his original draft round in 2006. That's an improvement for Adeyanju, who didn't even dress early in the season with Spags preferring undrafted rookie DE C. J. Ah You in the lineup instead. The Rams have a shortage at DE with James Hall and Leonard Little both scheduled to become unrestricted free agents when free agency opens Friday.
Meanwhile, in other RFA news, the Broncos tendered a first-round offer to WR Brandon Marshall and a second-round offer to TE Tony Scheffler. Both are considered trade targets once the trading period opens Friday. The Rams have been linked to Scheffler already during this offseason, and the Broncos might be willing to accept less than a second round pick for him, similar to the Rams RFA offer to Alex Barron.
Washington tendered QB Jason Campbell at the first-round level, as expected, and it sounds like they won't be trading him this season.
It's almost Christmas in March!
