Good points Gavin. And don't forget about Ogletree. If they're paying Barron $9 million a year, they're going to have to pay Ogletree more.
You now have a choice. Watch them both in training camp, the preseason, and the early going, and then pick a team.
Correct. Because of the TV dollars, owning an NFL team is a license to print money.
Yeah, as I mentioned earlier, I have the NFL Network on with the sound off while I'm here chatting, and just saw that as well. A couple of things to know about the franchise tag. You can always accept less than the two first-round picks you would get, if a team made a contract offer to a player and you decided not to match. The Rams traded defensive end Kevin Carter to Tennessee for just one first-round pick in 2001, for example.
Except the Rams don't have a first-round pick this year.
I think it's a little late for Tonya. Not quite that late for Fisher, although I think it will be tough for him to get another chance as an NFL head coach.
Thanks for checking in Scott, and great job with Prescott, Elliott, and the Dallas offense last season.
I just don't know. I'd like to think it will pass. But I just don't know.
Kevin, helped usher the Rams to Los Angeles. That's worth more to Kroenke than making the playoffs.
Fans are always fascinated by uniform changes. So in the short term, yes.
It would take a long time to answer that one. It's been more than one coach, one GM, one draft, one free agency period. It's been a long time since the Rams really hit on a bunch of free agents. But they did back in the early days of Charley Armey and with Dick Vermeil as coach. Free agents such as Jeff Wilkins, Mike Jones, Ray Agnew, Ricky Proehl.
I don't, and it's doubtful Chris goes on the opening weekend.
We may never know. It was a secret ballot, and when the votes were handed in _ on paper we were told _ I don't even think the names of the teams were on each slip of paper. But for starters, we could guess the Chargers and Raiders, since their Carson plan lost out. And there's also Carolina owner Jerry Richardson, who was very much anti-Kroenke.
You can still get something done w/$20 million, don't get me wrong. Just not as much as you'd like. Down the road, for example, you can think about cutting some expensive players to free up cap money. But simply stated, it begins with hitting on more draft picks, and maybe an undrafted free agent or two. They are cheap labor. (For a while.)
Garcon makes sense, in part because he played for McVay.
Sorry, 4-12 means rebuild in my book..
I believe the record is 20 seasons (w/out a winning record--this would include seasons in which the team finished at .500, with an 8-8 mark or in the days of the 14-game schedule, ta 7-7). The New Orleans Saints didn't have a winning record from 1967-1986. The Rams are at 13 consecutive non-winning seasons.
Sure. But where does a Trumaine Johnson trade leave you at cornerback? You better have a plan to bring in a high-quality starter.
We'll see. If the TV ratings continue to dip, it could become a different ballgame.
It came out last week. It's at $167 million, up I believe $12 million from last year.
