The St. Louis Rams are continuing their free agent pursuits, this time with an eye on the offensive line. According to Jim Thomas, the Rams are talking to Atlanta Falcons center Todd McClure. Houston Texans defensive tackle Eric Winston is lined up a for a visit, with stops in several other cities.
We've covered Winston pretty thoroughly. He would be a great signing for the Rams who need answers on the outside of their offensive line.
On the inside of their offensive line, there are just as many question marks. The release of Jason Brown leaves the team needing a center. McClure, 35, would be a short-term answer at center for the Rams. He missed the first two games of the season last year, but graded out positively for the Falcons. Tim Barnes, UDFA out of Missouri, will also get some looks in camp, but the Rams have to have some experience at the position.
