Random Ramsdom, 6/16: Spotlight on the defense

Top 'o the morning to all. Let's get right in and see what's happening in the world of the St. Louis Rams.

The highlight of yesterday's OTA came from DT James Wyche, according to the PD. He batted down a pass and nabbed the INT. The Rams claimed Wyche off waivers from the Jags last December. 

Well compensated DT Albert Haynesworth wants a trade. Jeff at RamsGab says no way for the Rams. A big part of Haynesworth's contract has been paid, making it possible that any team acquiring him wouldn't be on the hook for too much of the ridiculous deal he got in the first place. He's also saying that he won't give any money back - remember, this is all because he doesn't want to play in a 3-4 defense. That means the Redskins could be asking for a higher return on the DT and/or some money to offset the mistake they made, effectively putting the Rams out of the mix, not that they wouldn't be anyway given that whole "four pillars" thing. 

James Laurinaitis gives a very practical run down of the evolving Big 10 conference which poached Nebraska from the Big 12. 

Justin King is working opposite Ron Bartell to form the Rams starting CB duo; Bill Coats from the PD expects the rapidly healing Bradley Fletcher to reclaim the starting job over King before the season starts.
