JO-LONN DUNBAR NEWS

New contract, fresh start for Dunbar

For Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, the 2013 season was like a bad dream. You know, the kind you try to forget. For starters, he had a reduced role in the defense as the strong side linebacker. After playing almost every down at weak side in 2012, he wasn’t on the field in the nickel package last season. There was a new defensive coordinator (Tim Walton), which meant the scheme...

Kaepernick Responds to TMZ Allegations

Sean McMahon San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick stepped into the limelight when Alex Smith suffered a concussion on a hit by St. Louis Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar in Week 10 of the 2012 season. Since that game, Kaepernick’s rise to stardom has been like no other in NFL history. He is 21-8 as a starter and has speed and arm power unmatched by any quarterback...

Rams have signed free agents -- just no one you've heard of

ST. LOUIS -- You know it's been a relatively quiet free agency period for the Rams when the biggest news is the re-signing of offensive lineman Rodger Saffold and linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar. And when the second-biggest news is the addition of two guys who didn't even play football last season. The Rams made a couple of under-the-radar signings recently in rookie free agent...

Top Ten Highest Fined NFL Players of 2013

While the amount of money an NFL player  can make in the course of the season is quite large, there’s also several ways they can lose a huge sum of their salary.  Many of these fines and suspensions handed down to players are a direct result of today’s “No Fun League” and how they’ve seriously been cracking down in recent years. As salaries continue to rise, so do the...

St. Louis Rams are loaded at defensive end, but here are the top prospects anyway

We’ve already explored the possibility of the Rams adding Jadeveon Clowney in this year’s draft, despite the Rams already being loaded at the defensive end position. The thinking is that Clowney would by far be the best player available at no. 2 if he’s there, and the Rams would be short-sighted to reach and fill a need rather than simply take a guy as good as Clowney. As you...

Rams Re-Sign LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar

Mike Garafolo reports that the Rams have re-signed LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar to a two-year contract. However, Ian Rapoport mentions that it could be as much as worth $3.5 million, so one of these figures is likely accurate.

Your final free agency primer for the St. Louis Rams

It has been 66 long days since the Rams bowed out of the 2013 regular season in Dec. 29′s 27-9 loss at Seattle. In that time, we’ve had nothing to feed our relentless appetite for all things Rams except mass disparate conjecture over the team’s two first round picks, the value of guard/tackle Rodger Saffold, and the future of quarterback Sam Bradford. Oh sure, the combine was...

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...

Could the Rams consider targeting a top free agent linebacker?

The Rams finally have shored up the outside linebacker position, which they had long neglected, by drafting Alec Ogletree in the first round last season. Ogletree improved as the season progressed and made enough big plays (six forced fumbles and a 98-yard interception return for a touchdown) to justify his sometimes lackluster pass coverage and occasional missed tackles. However...

Mailbag: Should the Rams consider drafting Michael Sam?

Should the Rams consider drafting Michael Sam? – Jimmy, Belleville, Ill. Let’s cut right to the chase. Yes, I absolutely think the Rams should consider drafting Sam, assuming he doesn’t completely bomb at the NFL combine. The NFL has proven that teams can never have enough pass rushers. Look no further than recent Super Bowl champion teams such as the 2007 and 2011 Giants,...

A case for Ray-Ray Armstrong

As we continue to gear up for free agency and the draft here in our small corner of cover32, we’ll continue to evaluate the fringe guys and their potential to evolve into impact players should they survive the offseason. The Rams will have to make a decision at strong side linebacker at some point, as the two players with the most experience are both headed to free agency. Both...

Rams welcome Dunbar back after PED suspension with open arms -- but why?

Looking back now at the handwringing that took place on August 14 when the NFL suspended Rams starting outside linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar for cheating the hearty welcome the defensive sledgehammer received upon his return on Tuesday seemed sort of odd.
