The St. Louis Rams have several questions surrounding the wide receiver position, as Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson are both free agents. However, if they find themselves in need of an additional wide out, the team isn’t expected to target free agents Greg Jennings or Dwayne Bowe, according to Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. If St. Louis does lose Amendola, it doesn't mean they're going to be in the chase for a big-name, big-money free agent receiver like Greg Jennings or Dwayne Bowe. That's not in the plan for the Rams, who consider Jennings an injury risk himself after his 2012 season, and like many teams are wary of Bowe's decreased effort level after he earns a big payday. Rather than target pricey options such as Jennings and Bowe, the Rams are more likely to turn to the NFL Draft to fill their wide receiver vacancies, according to Banks. St. Louis would be comfortable doing this because they are high on Chris Givens and Brian Quick. For this reason Banks says the team “won’t reach for the sake of need.” Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.thenflinjuryreport.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
