Free agent WLB Scott Shanle has spoken to the Rams about lining up a visit.
Shanle was ineffective as an outside linebacker last season and the Saints are likely ready to move in a new direction. In St. Louis, he'd be able to battle the likes of David Vobora and Na'il Diggs for snaps.

On Sims... I was pretty high on him coming out of college... not so much anymore. He just doesn't make enough plays for me.

I could do without Shanle, nothing personal.

I'm not interested but...

The Cowboys have informed RB Marion Barber of his impending release.
Barber never stood a prayer of collecting on his $4.25 million salary, and the Cowboys had to make a quick decision on his $500,000 roster bonus.

MBIII entered last season as the starter, but showed no evidence of a burst even before a mid-season calf injury. After averaging 4.5 yards per carry as one of the most physical backs in the league from 2005-07, Barber's production has tailed off to 3.88 over the past three years. Now 28 and plagued by multiple leg injuries in recent seasons, Barber will have to accept a backup job on the open market.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

The Tennessee Titans are not expected to re-sign DL Jason Babin, and the Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles are interested in his services.

Babin has finally played to his projected draft status; he should probably stay there...

Not available now is Charles Johnson, DE; the Panthers just did a 76mil contract (~30mil guaranteed)...

Nice to see the Panthers tie up all there money; guess the Front office there is lazy...

The bulk of that is a signing bonus. They didn't tie up all their money and still have plenty to spend. That said, that's a huge contract tied up to a player and organization that won't be a Superbowl contender for quite a while imo.

Stewart Bradley is now available and could be a nice fit here.

I hope you are right, but we all said the same thing about Tampa before last season.

Things can change pretty damn fast in todays NFL.

That's true... if Newton pans out, they could definitely turn it around quicker. They definitely have a stout offensive line when healthy too.
