Rumors and Rants:
The St. Louis Rams made offensive tackle Jason Smith the No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft, expecting him to be the franchise’s anchor along the offensive line. They signed the Baylor product to a six-year, $61.775 million contract, with $33 million in guaranteed money. Well, after three seasons apparently the Rams have had enough of Smith’s attempt at proving worthy of that pick.
The NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora claims that Smith will definitely not be back with the Rams at his contracted base salary of $10 million next season.

During those years, the offense was a...
Quoting the great Eminem, men who hit it without condoms like to do a "raw dog, and bail." But as Peter Burns informed us, St. Louis Rams running back Steven Jackson sent the following tweet Tuesday night about needing condoms. MTV and BET will probably invite him on as a safe-sex missionary now. I bet he uses Dental Dams as well. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
Will WR Randy Moss and DT Albert Haynesworth land with the St. Louis Rams in 2012? Both players are unemployed currently and both players have experience with head coach Jeff Fisher. So, if you connect the dots, it’s logical to assume that both players could get a look from Jeff Fisher and his new team, the St. Louis Rams.
There is no doubt that the wide receiver position...
If your team is in need of a strong, physical and really reliable cornerback ready to make an instantaneous impact, you might want to learn a little about an All-Pro with the Tennessee Titans who’s set to enter 2012 NFL Free Agency.

Sports with Mr. Factoid returned last night for another great show!
I was joined in studio by @TheJustinTyme for the program. It was great to have him back on the show sharing his knowledge.
The agenda was full, which is typical. Shane Gray (ShaneGMoSTLRams) stopped by during the Hometown Notes segment to share the latest news on the St. Louis Rams.
