The St. Louis Rams traded wide receiver Greg Salas to the New England Patriots for a late-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

Les Snead mentioned earlier in the week that other teams were interested in some of the receivers on the bubble. Josh McDaniels lobbied hard to draft Salas during his brief strange trip as the Rams offensive coordinator. They selected him with a fourth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Salas had his moments with the Rams last year, before his season ended with a broken leg. He slid down the depth chart as training camp progressed, working with the third team by the end of the preseason. The writing was clearly on the wall.

Trading Salas frees up one of two roster spots for the two players claimed, RB Terrance Ganaway and DT Kellen Heard. We can probably expect more moves ahead of Wednesday's start to the 2012 NFL season.

There was talk yesterday that the Rams were shopping Bradley Fletcher. Will that be one of the next shoes to drop?

Also, the Blues seemed to get something of the deal as well.
