The Los Angeles #Rams were without any final action on the free agent front yesterday, but let's just recap where things stand on signings:
|Tim Barnes||C||27||Re-signed with Rams|
|Mark Barron||SS||26||Re-signed with Rams|
|William Hayes||DE||30||Re-signed with Rams|
|Janoris Jenkins||CB||27||Signed with Giants|
|Rodney McLeod||FS||25||Signed with Eagles|
|Brian Quick||WR||26||Re-signed with Rams|
|Cody Davis||S||26||Re-signed with Rams|
|Brian Folkerts||C||25||Re-signed with Rams|
|Eugene Sims||DE||29||Re-signed with Rams|
Clearly "Priority A" was a failure, but otherwise the Rams have held things together. No new purchases as of yet though. While that might upset fans looking for immediate gratification, note (a) how unsuccessful the Rams have been in Fa during Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher's tenure and (b) how poorly the results correlate to improvement in the NFL writ large.
Now to the remaining expired contracts:
|Daren Bates||OLB||25||RFA, not tendered|
|Benny Cunningham||RB||25||RFA, low tendered|
|Case Keenum||QB||27||RFA, high tendered|
|Chase Reynolds||RB||28||RFA, not tendered|
Some of the work at the bottom of the table may have already have been resolved and just unreported.
We know Benny visited the Patriots already, though he went un-signed.
Case Keenum got that first-round tender...he's not going anywhere. Doesn't sound like the Rams are all that interested in using FA to modify the QB depth chart anyway.
The real story now is going to be those top four UFAs and any remaining additional moves on the market.
Yesterday was a day for QB news with the Eagles trading Mark Sanchez to the Broncos, Johnny Manziel being released by the Browns and Robert Griffin III visiting the Jets who have grown "frustrated" in their talks with Ryan Fitzpatrick.
There's still plenty of work to come ahead of the 2016 NFL Draft...
