Rams have been super busy traders. On top of the Peters trade we sent Robert Quinn to Miami for the same round (higher number) picks that Peters cost us. As well as improving our 4th & 6th round position and getting Peters we dump Quinn's salary cap hit. He did improve late in the year but he's not a natural fit for the 3-4 scheme and he's clearly declining after some injury hit seasons so its a solid Rams move.

Then today / yesterday, somewhat surprisingly the Rams sent Ogletree to the Giants for some mid/late round picks. Ogletree's a playmaking LB but he's a little soft against the run for an ILB and so is his partner Mark Barron, so it's not that surprising that the Rams should look to replace one with a bigger guy there. The surprise is that its 'Tree as he was defensive captain and got a big contract extension only last Autumn. Tells me that, a) Rams had second thoughts on the value of that. b) Rams think Barron is a more important / versatile player and will resign him.

We now have 6 picks in the 6th round :shock: (as well as 2 in the 4th and 1 in the 5th). Clearly they think its a deep draft.

Rams just added Talib from the Broncos for a 5th and signed Sam Shields for CB depth. Now I know Shields is coming back from a year out with concussion but that DB roster is looking pretty fierce with Peters, Talib, Joyner & John Johnson starters and Webster, Shields and Roby-Coleman (hopefully resigning) as depth.

Looking forward to seeing how Jimmy G does throwing into that no-fly zone with Aaron Donald in his face. :twisted:

So great to have a proper Rams 49ers California rivalry back.

Deshone Kizer traded after one season to Green Bay. Guy was never a first year starter. Lots of people liked him over Watson but I could never see it. Kizer was a shaky starter at Notre Dame which is never a good sign.

In another deal we got Tyrod Taylor from Buffalo. I'm okay with that. Now whichever QB we draft can sit behind him for a season or two. Still like Allen, could live with Rudolph and maybe Jackson (think he has potential but not sure the division suits his style). Rosen is a no and I'm back and forth on Darnold. Has great touch on his passes but I'm not sure he can command an NFL locker room with his passive demeanor and the decisions with some of his throws needs to improve.

$13M Dollars a season to a guy who's had two knee injuries in the last two seasons.
MCL in 2016 and ACL in 2017.
At least SF can afford it.

edit: sorry, MCL and Achillies

Sherman's a consolation prize after Talib turned them down.

Kizer could be a very good trade for Green Bay. They know how to develop a QB as backup to a Hall of Famer.

Cousins reportedly signing for massive money with the Vikings.

So, Broncos and Jets drafting a QB.

Also Cardinals will have to trade up (desperately).
They have NO Quarterbacks on their roster right now and about $19M of cap space that can't possibly attract Cousins.

Oakland Raiders decision on cut/keep Sean Smith just got a bit easier.
He's going to jail for a year.

Apparently Raiders were in the mix for Richard Sherman, but told him they didn't have the money to match the 49'ers offer.

Interested in talking to Mo Wilkerson and now Ndamukong Suh is just about to be cut by the Dolphins.
So, basically, Free Agent pick of either D/L or CB and then draft the other.
Maybe even draft a LB (especially as it appears we're letting go of Bowman).

Fair play to Suh, he's played a blinder; the clear top of this class.

He'll smash the record for pay defensively when it's done.

Adding Sammy Watkins to the Chiefs looks like giving us a scary offense with Kelce, K Hunt, and Hill, albeit with the still largely unproven qualities of Mahomes. Mahomes has looked good in the little we saw of him last season but I'd like to know he has a football brain to go with that arm of his.

Of course we need our O line to keep Mahomes upright but it does look like most of our draft picks will be going to the defence now. Hali's gone, Ron Parker is gone, Peters gone. Without our first-rounder in the draft that'll be a sparse set of selections for us this year. Given a choice between Berry and Peters I'd take Berry every time but it would have been nice to have both on the field again this season. Peters must've really p1ssed in someone's cornflakes, or maybe there was something else in the dressing room that Reid didn't like, including but not limited to his cornflakes. Still we need another CB (or 2) now and we need a lot more steel up against the run.

Watkins got insane money for a guy who was 3rd in production among Rams receivers last year and who struggled to complete a season healthy as a Bill. No doubt he has the tools to be a #1 but KC taking a huge gamble there.

The Minnesota 3:
Bradford to Arizona
Bridgewater to the Jets
Keenum to Broncos

Cousins on massive guaranteed money to Vikings.

Seems quite a few teams have found their QB via FA. Does that allow Browns to take Barkeley at #1 and still get their choice of QB at #4?

Titans sign both Butler and Dion Lewis from the Patriots
Amendola to the Dolphins. Normally you'd say that's a lot of people to replace for a contender but its NE so you know they'll be fine.

Jets get Trumaine Johnson

Bears add Trey Burton (to replace poor Zach Miller) and Allen Robinson
Moncrief signs with the Jags.
Ravens sign Ryan Grant (meh)

Cuts put Jordy Nelson (past sell-by date?) and Ndamukong Suh on the market.

Eric Weddle on Twitter blasting the Bradford signing :lol: : "So dumb. Bradford has been paid more for nothing than anyone in history of nfl"

Shame the Ravens don't play the Cards this year.

Would be interesting to see a league table of $ earned per snap taken.

If the Raiders only manage one marque signing I'd like it to be Suh.

So obviously, we're lined up to talk to Nelson :roll:
Crabtree's $7.8M doesn't look so bad considering the money being thrown at other WRs.

The Vikes spending the big bucks.

I get the Bradford trade and understand Case's too as it is the nature of the business. I do feel for Bridgewater though as, notwithstanding his horrendous knee injury, he could have been a star at the Vikings. I hope his move to the Jets is a positive. I suspect he was traded rather than kept as a backup because the Vikes saw something in his recovery that they didn't like.

Suh really should be a Raider - the more nasty pieces of shit we get, the better.

That's a good move for the Vikings (Cousins) and not as expensive as you thought it would have been.

Hyde replaces Crowell, who has signed with the Jets. The talent is definitely there for the Browns to win a game or two this year. Shame for them they have to replace the retiring Joe Thomas.

Suh and Vontez to Raiders would be 'Burfect' :D .

The Burfict rumour seems to have been debunked by both sides.

Of the 4 Free Agents we might have wanted to keep on defense, we've kept Ellis (DT), lost Autry (DE) and Carrie (CB).
Allowing Bowman to "test the market" in the hope of getting him back on a cheap deal. Maybe.

Can't see the Suh deal happening - unless we're going to make a major cut (Crabtree? Irvin?) to clear more cap space.
Which makes the interest in Jordy Nelson dubious.

Either way, we're going to have to hit it out of the park in the Draft or we're screwed defensively for another season.

Rams need a WR to replace Sammy Watkins. Would be hilarious if we grab Crabtree and he and Talib can play snatch the chain every practice.

Meanwhile Dolphins continue policy of getting rid of any of their good players. Pro-bowl center Pouncey joins Suh on the cutting room floor.

No.

Basically the same money:
Crabtree $16M over two years ($0 guaranteed)
Nelson $15M over two years ($13M guaranteed)

Word is Crabtree has become a big problem in the locker room.

Will be interesting to see how much Nelson has in the tank but perhaps then it's more about a better tutor for Amari Cooper.

Tavon Austin was due to be cut but has apparently taken a paycut to remain with Rams. Interesting move since it seems he's self aware enough to realise he was overpaid and had little chance of getting a good gig elsewhere in the league. He's frustrating because he has talent, it just doesn't seem to fit very well into the NFL (can't run routes, not great catching, not reliable hands for PR/KR). McVay tried to make him a RB last year and that failed but the fact he's not been cut must mean McVay wants to try something with him.

Other Rams rumour was they made a push to sign Bengals TE Tyler "sicknote" Eifert but Bengals matched the offer and Eifert is staying there.

Hope the Jets re-sign McCown and then take a flyer on a 3rd round project. Not sure how Teddy is gonna work out. Did anyone realize that McCown has never played in the system for 2 years? 15 years in the league 15 different systems.
