Despite slip in play, Cortland Finnegan’s leadership helped mold these young Rams

Power Rankings: With plenty of options at No. 2, St. Louis Rams move up

Moves are starting to be made. With free agency just a week away, NFL teams are deciding which players on their current roster are worth keeping, and which ones can test the waters of the open market.

Did the St. Louis Rams cheerleaders make the list of the 10 best in the NFL?

Not every team has them, which is one of the biggest head-scratchers in football. Why wouldn’t a franchise want to have cheerleaders on the sidelines during games?

Twitter Tuesday: Photo of St. Louis Rams’ tight end and school kids is adorable

St. Louis Rams’ tight end Cory Harkey certainly isn’t a fan favorite. That’s by no doing of his own, of course, but when you only have 14 catches in two seasons it’s difficult to attract the attention of the average joe. Still, there’s no doubt Harkey has potential, as cover32′s Ted Bryant wrote about in January. The (going into his) third year man out of UCLA played...

Off-season Troubleshooting: St. Louis Rams

It was another season in purgatory for the St. Louis Rams, finishing 7-9 and bottom of the NFC West. Things are steadily getting better for a team looking for its first foray into the post-season in ten years. They have some good young players on both sides of the ball, but are hamstrung by being in a very tough division, as well as a starting quarterback in Sam Bradford who has...

The Rams might look long and hard at one of these free agent defensive backs

Our own Buck Stanton broke down the top 10 defensive backs earlier this morning, and some familiar names that we’ve touted were on there. These players include safeties T.J. Ward and Jairus Byrd and cornerback Alterraun Verner. Unfortunately, the Rams might get priced out of the market for defensive backs, considering 30-year-old Brent Grimes just re-signed with the Dolphins for...

Rams, Rodger Saffold contract talks expected to 'intensify'

Will the Rams be able to hang onto versatile offensive lineman Rodger Saffold? They're going to give it their best shot. It may be cold outside, but it's heating up inside Rams Park! (See what we did there?) Contract talks between free agent tackle/guard/injured reserve list frequent flyer Rodger Saffold and the St. Louis Rams are expected to "intensify" this week...

St. Louis Rams: Players They Can't Afford To Lose In Free Agency

The St Louis Rams aren’t in the market to be a big spender in Free agency this off season, as they have just over $7 million available in cap space.  It is lucky for them that the Rams do not have a long list of free agents that they need to re-sign.  St Louis will have 10 players entering free agency on the eleventh, not counting Brady Quinn who ended 2013 on the IR and is recovering...

Finnegan and Bailey instantly make Chargers better

After a bloody week in the NFL, and an especially tough Wednesday for veteran corners, the defensive back free agent market has been bolstered with depth. Veteran cornerbacks Cortland Finnegan and Champ Bailey were cut on Wednesday and are players the Chargers must consider. Bailey is probably still the better player of the two, but at 35, Champ has had a lot of trouble staying healthy...

The Rams need secondary help, so why not give Brandon Browner a chance?

Now that the Rams have parted ways with one of their worst free agent signings in team history in Cortland Finnegan, they are in dire need of secondary help. Soon-to-be third-year cornerbacks Janoris Jenkins and Trumaine Johnson are the only two NFL-caliber cornerbacks on the roster right now*.
