ST. LOUIS You ask Lance Kendricks about the new guy in town. You want to know more about the arrival's impact. You want to know what he means for the St. Louis Rams' depth at tight end, what he'll do on Sundays to make memories. You want to know what makes him tick. You ask Kendricks about Matthew Mulligan the former New York Jets tight end who signed as a free agent with the Rams in March and the second-year player cracks a smile. He chuckles. He says Mulligan is a strong guy, a weight-room guy something that becomes obvious when you see the 27-year-old's 6-foot-4, 265-pound frame later on the recent afternoon. But mostly, Mulligan is a joker. Hilarious, Kendricks says. The new guy was signed to add another name to the depth chart, but he's already remembered for more. "That guy's funny," Kendricks says. This fall, though, Mulligan hopes his play is no laughing matter. He inked a two-year deal with the Rams more for his heart than his hand...

Robert Quinn continuing to impress Rams

Robert Quinn was a 1st round pick of the St. Louis Rams in the 2011 NFL Draft and he was viewed as such a steal at 14 that the Rams took him even though they didn’t have an immediate need at the position. Quinn played in a situational role last season as a rookie, with 6 sacks, 9 quarterback hits, and 21 quarterback pressures, though he graded out negatively against the run on...

St. Louis Rams: Most Overrated and Underrated Players

Who are the most overrated and underrated players on the Rams roster? That depends on who you ask.  However, there are two players that stand out in my mind based on their statistics. It was hard to pick two players considering that the Rams have hired Jeff Fisher and a whole new coaching staff. The future is looking good for St. Louis but I'm basing the list based on the past...

Schottenheimer tackles Rams' offensive woes

ST. LOUIS Brian Schottenheimer was hired to heal. The new St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator will be asked to do many things to repair one of the NFLs worst units last season, but mainly, his job is to make his franchises greatest weakness become a strength.

Rams could call defense by committee all year

ST. LOUIS (AP) Nearly three months since the St. Louis Rams lost their defensive coordinator, coach Jeff Fisher appears to be in no hurry to define roles among the handful of people capable of filling the void. Fisher believes if the game plan is sound, it doesn't matter who makes the calls. "The most difficult part of the week is putting the plan together," Fisher...

Rams agree to terms with OLB Rocky McIntosh

The St. Louis Rams and outside linebacker Rocky McIntosh, a starter for most of six seasons with the Redskins, have signed a free-agent contract. The 29-year-old McIntosh could challenge for a starting spot in St. Louis, which has also signed Jo-Lonn Dunbar and Mario Haggan to contracts at the position.

Bulked up Saffold is ready to protect Sam Bradford

A bulked up and healthy Rodger Saffold can only help Sam Bradford in 2012. - (Photo credit: Wikipedia) St. Louis Rams left tackle Rodger Saffold had a disappointing season in 2011.  Even before his season was cut short by a torn pectoral muscle, Saffold did not seem to improve upon what was an impressive rookie season and was part of possibly one of the worst offensive lines in...

Rams sign Rocky McIntosh

The Rams have signed free agent outside linebacker Rocky McIntosh. It’s June so there are not a lot of impact signings, if any, but this move might have any impact for the Rams. McIntosh was only still available on the market this long because he struggled in Washington’s 3-4 over the last 2 seasons, losing his starting job to Perry Riley in the middle of last season. However...

Rams sign LB McIntosh

The Rams agreed to a one-year deal with outside linebacker Rocky McIntosh, who participated in the team's minicamp on a tryout basis after six seasons with the Redskins. McIntosh, a second-round pick in 2006, was benched last season in favor of Perry Riley and drew little interest as an unrestricted free agent. He took free-agent visits to Miami (April 1) and Minnesota (May...
