Where to Look

In the last few weeks the Rams have made additions to their coaching staff and front office. The pieces are in place, so it's time to start looking elsewhere for improving the team.

Free agency opens on Feb. 27th.

Rams have players of their own to try and sign, but they need so much help on defense, they need to set their sights on a few players and go after them. There are a few linebackers that are out there that would be good additions.

Eric Barton (Jets), Jonathan Vilma (Saints), and Michael Boley (Falcons) are young with a lot of upside. Ray Lewis is on the market, but he is in the twilight of his career.

On the defensive line, Julius Peppers (Carolina) is the stud that everybody wants. I don't think the Rams are interested for financial reasons. Albert Haynesworth (Titans) and Rocky Bernard (Seattle) along with Bertrand Berry (Arizona) are the best of the bunch.

The Rams secondary has not been deep for years. At this point I'd like to see them get anyone under 30 years of age, over 6 ft. tall and can run a 4.3 or 4.4 forty. I'll take anyone that can fit that criteria.

Spags and his new coaching staff will be very busy in the next week. As long is they can figure out what to look for, maybe they can find out where to look.
