St. Louis Rams corner back Janoris Jenkins may have a thing or two in commons with the team's latest free agent signing.

Taunting, sportsmanship and the St. Louis Rams -- The Post-Dispatch
Player and personnel conduct policies and concerns are a theme that will never -- ever, ever, ever -- go away in the NFL. No matter how much the game and rule book change, more alterations will always be considered and implemented. So as the league owners and executives meet once again to discuss antics before and after the whistle, we will ponder how long the sport your father called "football" will continue to exist.

Predicting the Rams' compensatory picks -- ESPN NFC West Blog
Believe it or not, other teams in the NFL found value in the Rams free agents last offseason. Unfortunately, their overall worth was not that of luxury, but it should net some return. Two compensatory picks -- or even one -- would be much better than none.

You have one more day, Rams fans! Do not allow this madness to continue!

Rams sign former FSU Seminole Greg Reid -- Ramblin' Fan
If the name doesn't immediately ring a bell, don't feel embarrassed. Corner back and return specialist Greg Reid, who has a history of injuries and off-field concerns, hasn't played a meaningful football game since late 2011, but the Rams didn't simply sign a random kid off the street.

Should the Rams pass on Sanchez? -- Ramblin' Fan
Get used to it, because this story is not likely to die soon. Nathan Kearns tells why the Rams should not entertain the notion of employing the former New York Jets quarterback.

Ravens sign safety Darian Stewart -- The Baltimore Sun
The Baltimore Ravens have signed safety Darian Stewart to a one-year contract.  Rams fans will always remember Stewart for his game-clinching pick-six against the Saints in 2011, but not for much else.

49ers GM denies DeSean Jackson rumors -- Niners Nation
San Francisco general manager Trent Baalke adamantly dismissed reports that he and the 49ers have made contact with the Philadelphia Eagles, current home of wide receiver DeSean Jackson. The 'Niners could use a pair of fresh legs opposite of Michael Crabtree with Anquan Boldin reaching the end of his impressive career.

However, the Seahawks may actually be interested -- Field Gulls
The Seattle Seahawks have also been linked to the soon-to-be ousted Eagles wideout, but they have not publicly denied it. The most daunting question is DeSean Jackson's asking price, which is presently too high for any team to pay.  Percy Harvin and Jackson on the field at the same time? Please, no.

Buccaneers receiver Williams stabbed in leg -- Tampa Bay WTSP
Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Williams, a 2010 Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate, has had a troubling history with the law, but his most recent misfortune may not have come as a result of his own crime.
