Justin Blalock

Per Jim Thomas, the Rams will play host to former Falcon Justin Blalock. There are two ways to take this. You can either look at it as help along the OL or you can look at it as Davin Joseph 2.0. I'm inclined to endorse the former simply because he has proven to be durable over his career and has only missed 3 games since being selected in the 2nd round of the 2007 Draft.

According to Pro Football Focus, Blalock has had a positive grade each of the past 5 seasons and is second best available guard. ESPN's Nick Wagoner believes that Blalock would be a good fit in terms of scheme as well.

Stefen Wisniewski

On the Wiz front, he left Tampa without a contract, which is awesome news for the Rams. He's the best Center on the market, but at this point the interest seems stronger among fans than in Rams Park. That being said, they have 'reached out' to Wiz, but no formal visits are scheduled at this time per Thomas

Seems like the Rams are - finally - making strides in their search for O-lineman. Adding both players would be ideal, but even adding one would drastically improve the Rams current group of hogs.
