Offseason begins

With the official offseason conditioning program underweay at Rams Park the roster continues to take shape. With mainstays such as Orlando Pace and Torry Holt gone, the team will have a need for younger players to assert themselves in to leadership roles.

Free agency, on paper, has been a success for the Rams. Not too many moves but all moves significantly upgraded key areas. As the draft approaches the rest of holes should be filled.

Always an exciting time to be a fan!

Free Agency

The Rams struck quickly with their well publicized game plan on how to fix the team for the future. The Rams have stated that they want to get bigger on the lines and more stout up the middle. The Rams began the process by signing Jason Brown to give the Rams a potential pro bowl center. Did the Rams have to overspend? Yes, but all bad teams do during free agency, see Josh Brown last year.

Today the Rams made their strongest move by resigning Ron Bartell. Bartell is viewed by most scouts as an ascending player with very good size and speed.

Kudos to the Rams for sticking to the game plan.
