Good morning, Rams fans, and happy Friday to you all!
Today, let’s get the conversation rolling with a discussion on what remaining free agents you would like to see the Rams kick the tires on before things are all said and done.
Despite having six safeties currently on the roster, the oldest of the bunch is just Nick Scott at 25 years old. Could the group stand to add a veteran? One name that comes to mind is former Jaguars and Bears safety Tashaun Gipson. Gipson will be 31 by the start of this season, but he’s been fairly consistent wherever he’s been thus far. This past season, he notched a pair of interceptions and broke up seven passes for the Bears. In his nine-year career, Gipson has picked off multiple passes and has broken up at least seven passes in six of those campaigns. That’s really not too shabby.
These are just some quick thoughts on the matter but let me hear what players you all have on your minds.
Now for today’s links.
