The St. Louis Rams entered the 2015 NFL free agency period approximately $6.7 million under the salary cap. With that amount of cash to spend, it was hard to fathom the team making any "splashy" moves or player acquisitions.
Their big move was trading Sam Bradford to the Eagles for Nick Foles and draft picks, which is an odd move, although getting picks helps. Signing Nick Fairley as backup depth on a one-year deal is a good move. Akeem Ayers will help the linebacker group. They were smart to bring back receiver Kenny Britt.
There’s still plenty of time for the Rams to make the moves necessary to strengthen their roster and round out the depth chart. They’ve also still got 5 picks at their disposal in the draft.
But for now, with a week of free agency under their belt, how are you grading their start?
