It's been a pretty quiet day for the Rams in free agency. Yesterday started with a big bang, as the team announced that they signed Cortland Finnegan and it appeared that they were close to sign Jason Jones. Jason Jones still hasn't signed a contract with the Rams and he is also scheduled to visit the Seahawks. It is in the Rams' best interest to sign him as soon as possible. Not only will they get a good player, they stop their biggest rivals from getting him.

Moving on, Eric Winston was in Miami today, but he hasn't signed. The Rams and the Chiefs also have visits scheduled. He is a guy who can come in and solidify the right side of the line and allow Harvey Dahl to move back to his better position of RG.

Finally, the free agent market for wide receivers is now bare. Vincent Jackson, Robert Meachem, Reggie Wayne, and Pierre Garcon all signed deals. Brandon Lloyd still remains on the market and would still interest the Rams who must upgrade the WR position. He is visiting the 49ers today, the team who he started his career with. The Rams didn't seem all that interested in bringing him back, and seem ready to move on.

Right now the best free agents are off the market, but some good players still remain who would interest the Rams. Eric Winston is scheduled to visit the team as mentioned earlier. Ben Grubbs is still available, but the Saints seem ready to make him the replacement for Carl Nicks, who signed with Tampa Bay.
