a lot of movement in the CB market this weekend
the Spagnoulo connection was obviously a factor

I guess its easy to go get a guy who allready knows the system. Just plug him in right away.

Also don't forget that the rams were down to their 6th CB last season due to injuries, so this guy probably got quite abit of playing time

No, he missed the entire last season due to an ankle injury, so he was one of those dozen Rams' DBs to hit the IR last season.

Like you guys said, it's good to see Spags bring in these guys that formerly played under him because they won't have to make that many adjustments in order to fit in.

Thats it. They both are probably equal in talent right now, but Murphy probably has more potential.

I kind of liked Mack, but I like that we are constantly upgrading.
