On Tuesday, the NFL free agency period will officially begin and a lot of St. Louis Rams' fans are a bit apprehensive after watching division rivals make big moves via trade on Monday. The Seattle Seahawks brought in Percy Harvin and the San Francisco 49ers acquired Anguan Boldin while the Rams did nothing.
So how do the Rams answer the big moves made by the two teams who made the playoffs out of the ultra tough NFC West division? Who should the Rams target in free agency?
The Rams have several needs across the board, particularly on the offensive line, safety, wide receiver and even running back.
So where should the Rams go? Should the Rams pay the big bucks and bring in a top-flight free agent like Jake Long or Mike Wallace?
Should the Rams go for a second tier free agent like right offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer or tight end Jared Cook?
Or should the Rams look to replace Steven Jackson by signing a free agent running back like Ahmad Bradshaw or Rashard Menden...

The Packers should be serious about signing Steven Jackson.
It was an unusual opening day of NFL free agency for Green Bay Packer fans. Normally, there is nothing to be heard from Packers camp during the first few days of the frenzy as the high priced free agents come off the board fast and furious but yesterday was just a little bit different.

Steven Jackson could be the guy to help Green Bay get back to the Super Bowl.

Yet, sometimes you have to...

Today at 4 p.m. marks the official start to the NFL Free Agent signing period. There are some big names that many experts expect to change teams such as former Ram Steven Jackson, former Steeler Mike Wallace, and possibly (former) Patriot Wes Welker.
I don't truly care where Jackson and Wallace end up because it neither one has any effect on...
We’re now about 24 hours away from the start of NFL Free Agency’s open market, which means we can finally start freaking out about who may be going where (unlike NFL Network and ESPN, who have been freaking out for weeks.) Who could blame us for waiting until the last minute? It’s not exactly like last off-season, when we had the “Peyton Manning Sweepstakes” to entertain...
