An examination of the St. Louis Rams tight end needs

Over the past week or so, we’ve passed along our list of top 10 free agent tight ends along with our list of top 10 tight end prospects in this year’s draft. But do the Rams need a tight end this year? It’s certainly not a top priority by any means, as the offensive line, secondary and wide receiving corps all are clearly more important. But as many successful teams have proven...

Should the Rams consider drafting one of the top tight ends?

The St. Louis Rams are seemingly set at tight end, with Jared Cook, Lance Kendricks and the versatile Cory Harkey set to return at the position. However, Kendricks could become a free agent after next season, and Harkey is not a long-term building block by any means. So the Rams could conceivably select a tight end in the draft this May. In case they do, we want you to be prepared...

Rams at best entering bye week

The St. Louis Rams refuse to be counted out. They built such a huge cushion against the heavily favored Colts they needed no late-game production to end a three-game losing streak. The Rams (4-6) enter their bye week on a very high note, a 38-8 romp on the road fueled by rookie Tavon Austin's long-awaited bust-out performance, and big plays in all phases. It was the franchise...

McNeill ready to step in at tight end

You can count Mike McNeill’s offensive snaps this season on two hands. Well, two hands and a couple of toes. The third-year tight end from the University of Nebraska has participated in 12 plays on offense, but that should change Sunday in Indianapolis. With Lance Kendricks sidelined with a fractured finger, McNeill figures to see his most extension action of 2013. “It’s always...

Rams muscle up using extra tight ends

At one point during Sunday’s 34-20 victory over Jacksonville Lance Kendricks said he turned to tight ends coach Rob Boras and said: “This reminds me of a Big Ten game.” “Just because it’s run run run run pass” Kendricks explained later.
