And now it's done. Rams sign LB Akeem Ayers to a two-year deal.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) March 13, 2015
Akeem Ayers deal with Rams is two years, $6 million with $3 million guaranteed. Could go as high as $10 million through incentives.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) March 13, 2015
Quick reaction to Ayers: Low risk, high upside signing. With Gregg Williams pushing the buttons, have no doubt he's got something cooked up.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) March 13, 2015
With the Rams solidifying the OLB position for next season, they're obviously focusing on making the D even more intimidating.
Detroit free agent DT Nick Fairley just landed in St. Louis for his visit with Rams.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) March 12, 2015
Terrance Knighton gets one-year, $4 million deal in Washington. Might be a good barometer for Nick Fairley though Fairley a year younger.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) March 12, 2015
Seems to be a tough market this year for the 2nd tier of DTs.
Joe Barksdale has found interest in his services underwhelming...could this mean Barksdale will indeed return to the Rams?
Continues to be strangely quiet on Rams OT Joe Barksdale. Am told he has yet to take any visits.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) March 12, 2015
Still Quiet on the Britt Front | BleacherReport
While he's expected to re-sign in St Louis, there is some question of whether he will take a 'hometown discount' for coach Fisher. This dragging on isn't good for any of the parties involved.
I already hear TST nation rioting for news on the OL front.
And to pre-empt one question, yes, I know the Rams need offensive linemen. And yes, they know that too.— Nick Wagoner (@nwagoner) March 12, 2015
Well, at least they know...

The correct answer is... HELL YES! Didn't the team learn their lesson when they put all their eggs in the Bradford basket?

A Philly perspective on Nick Foles | Cover 32 Rams
His offensive line was banged up the first half last season, and he only had one legit target in Jeremy Maclin, so my guess is the real Foles is closer to the 2013 one, but it’s somewhere in the middle.
Rams believed to be one of teams involved in possible trade of Philly OG Evan Mathis.— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) March 12, 2015
Rams deny they're involved in possible Evan Mathis trade. (Of course, we've heard that before w/Nick Foles, haven't we?)— Jim Thomas (@jthom1) March 12, 2015
Justin Blalock is 31 to Mathis' 33 and would likely come at a significantly cheaper rate than Mathis' $5.5M. Personally, I'd prefer the (slightly) younger and much cheaper option,
