My Sports Rumors:
The St. Louis Rams made a signing today that they hope will boost their weak receiving corps. They signed former New York Giants star and Philadelphia Eagles scrub wide receiver Steve Smith. It’s a one-year deal and probably at a very low salary. A deal that is without a doubt a give a recently injured, former star a chance to prove he’s healthy and that he could still perform.
@jthom1: Rams agree to terms with WR Steve Smith of Philadelphia and TE Matthew Mulligan of New York Jets.
In 2009, Smith became a star catching 107 passes for 1,220 yards but then needed microfracture surgery in 2010.
In 2011, Smith returned with the Eagles and caught 11 passes for 124 yards. Nothing to write home about and unfortunately the knee issues lingered putting him on injured reserve.
With the Rams he’ll definitely get a chance to prove he’s healthy, the receiving corps is just not that good. I do see one problem though. Smith excelled with the Giants as a slot receiver, the Rams need is on the outsides. They don’t really need a guy who can make catches down the middle, they need someone who can stretch the field.

Before the season began, Doug Farrar characterized the Rams' first round draft pick thusly: "Putting Chris Long and Robert Quinn alongside each other might just be illegal." I thought it would be interesting to check back in on Quinn's success last season in light of the PFF annual Pass Rusher Producitivity rankings. Chris Long began showing up well in these rankings...
After witnessing Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray trample the Rams defense for 253 rushing yards during Week 7, it's difficult to ignore the gaping holes on the defensive side of the ball.
That is, unless Rams offense is much, much worse. Which it is.
The St. Louis offense was not just conventionally bad in 2011. They were inept even in comparison to some of the...
Wide receiver Steve Smith has agreed to a one-year deal with the St. Louis Rams. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Smith was one of the best possession receivers in the NFL with the Giants before undergoing microfracture knee surgery in 2010, and was worth taking a flier on as the Rams have one of the weakest receiving corps in the NFL, even more so after Brandon...
Perhaps only the Rams could bring in a block-first tight end who drew more penalties than all but two other players at his position and a broken-down receiver who caught only nine passes in eleven games, and give fans hope that both players might be clear upgrades at their position. That's the state of things for a 2-14 team that only cracked 14 points four times last season...
St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke and his attempt to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers came up yesterday at the NFL owners meeting in Palm Beach. If Kroenke beats out the other two remaining bidders for the MLB franchise, the Stl. Rams could become the L.A. Rams once again.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell addressed the matter of the league’s cross ownership rules and Kroenke’s...
While NFL talking heads have been balls deep in the Peyton Manning hysteria over the past few weeks, there have been many other personnel moves made that could help some teams out once 2012 comes around. Draft weekend needs are becoming a little more clear for each club as their roster rounds into shape. Here are a few signings that you may have missed while engulfing yourself in...
