At a time, when basically nothing is happening in the football world, this is a fun and informative article. The guy positing that the NFC North is the strongest division in the NFL makes this a must read.

Rams slow to sign incoming draft class - ESPN

Having watched ESPN's 30 for 30 episode "Broke" I am quite gratified to hear the reasons why the Rams take a bit longer than others to sign their rookie class.

Rams rookies to watch - Ramblin' Fan

Out of a great draft class, LeMarcus Joyner has me the most intrigued. It may be my natural inclinations to the safety position, Joyners collegiate career or the still hanging chad of the free safety position. Perhaps all of that. Despite early indications that he will end up as a slot corner, I tend to think the free safety role may be his true calling.

Catching up with the quarterbacks - NFL

Sucked into the vacuum of their respective teams, Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater will be heavily watched this next season and with good reason. Each of them could be the missing link that propels their teams to contender status.

Fans were quite shocked when Pead ended the 2012 season with only 54 rushing yards, so you can imagine how fans felt after he miraculously managed to cut his rushing total to 21 yards in 2013.

Damn. Damn.

A short, but uber-cool documentary on the legend, "Deacon" Jones.

Alternate Universe Breaking News!: Isaiah Pead traded to Buffalo for Sammy Watkins - St. Louis Globe Democrat

In a stunning move that has NFL insiders baffled, Isaiah Pead has been traded away to the Bills for Sammy Watkins. The details are still sketchy, but the Bills have reportedly given the Rams a 2015 second round pick next year in addition to the rookie out of Clemson. New team owner - Brandon Bate , a closet Canadian for years - "Just wanted to do something nice, eh..." Sources say the 312 empty beer cans present at his press conference may have something to do with the bizarre trade?
