Less than two hours into free agency and the start of the league year, the St. Louis Rams front office was a busy place. Already they have visits scheduled with Jones Jones and Cortland Finnegan, and a host of other free agents are on their radar.
The Rams have some $30 million in cap space, and have been public about their desire to be active in free agency. Recapping where things stand ...
Robert Meachem of the Saints is their current target, and they are trying to schedule a visit with him, aiming for Wednesday. Meachem has a date in Buffalo set up for this week. Meachem would give the Rams a big, sure-handed possession receiver, a threat in the red zone, something they have really lacked.
Early on Tuesday, it was reported that the Rams have interest in Carlos Rogers, recently of the 49ers. Gregg Williams was his defensive coordinator.
The name on top of their list, however, is Cortland Finnegan. The former Titans cornerback is scheduled to visit Rams Park on Wednesday. Remember, the Rams have a press conference scheduled for 11 a.m. that morning.
Tracy Porter is another person of interest for the Rams at corner. A former Saint, he too knows Williams. Porter is also just 25-years old. Porter is a speedier cover corner that can struggle against physical play. He also has experience playing in the slot/nickel role.
Jason Jones will visit the Rams on Tuesday night. Jones also has a visit lined up with Seattle, which means the Rams should really push to get a deal done before he leaves Rams Park. Jones fills a huge need after the Rams released their incumbent starting defensive tackles earlier in the week.
The Rams need a backup quarterback, and they will have Jason Campbell come for a visit. Campbell is a solid game-manager type that could keep the team competitive if Bradford gets hurt again.
