With the signing of DE Chris Long, the New England Patriots nearly put together a trio of arguably the three best players from the 2010 St. Louis Rams along with WR Danny Amendola and RB Steven Jackson. Jackson, though, is now a free agent after a short run at the end of last season.

But if the Patriots are stocking up on the best Rams under Steve Spagnuolo, it's the Philadelphia Eagles who are grabbing the standout Rams from the early years of Jeff Fisher's tenure as head coach.

They recently re-signed QB Sam Bradford on a two-year deal to open March. They poached FS Rodney McLeod from the Rams in free agency this offseason. And now comes word the Eagles have added WR Chris Givens on a one-year deal.

Givens was the Rams' fourth-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft as part of the class that swelled from the RGIII-motivated trade of the #2 and #6 overall picks. Givens was traded in October to the Baltimore Ravens for a conditional 2018 seventh-round pick. In his three and a fifth seasons with the Rams, Givens put up 88 receptions on 184 targets for 1,433 yards and four receiving touchdowns.
