On Monday, we had an early nugget from Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic that the Arizona Cardinals were interested in Rams DE William Hayes:

Today though comes news from CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora that the Rams are "intent" on keeping a hold of Brah Brah Bojangles:

Unlike cornerback where after the Janoris Jenkins departure the Rams are deep enough to accept the attritiondefensive end is a bit more dicey.

In 2015, the Rams went with Robert Quinn, Chris Long, Eugene Sims and Hayes as their four-deep DE contingent. Long has since been cut and both Hayes and Sims are on expiring deals.

For what has long been a position of stability for the Rams, defensive end could well turn into one of the biggest positions of need in the next month.

Stay tuned.
