That assessment is based on what exactly?

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

If we can indeed get him at a fair price, considering his injuries, I'd absolutely take him. He's a really solid around player, who can at times be dominant. When I see what Kevin Williams brought to our defense in his limited role, I can see Chris having an impact, as he is a good bit younger. He might not ever be at his full potential again, but if he were, we wouldn't be having this conversation. We'd never sniff a deal with him.

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

James Laurinaitis sparks a bigger interest than long.

veteran quality depth on the cheap might not be a bad thing for the young pups

Yes...bring him in, please. We need help (any help) on the Front 7. Even if he's rotational, he's an upgrade at D-line depth which we desperately need.

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

Reminds me of Byrd and Spiller.

The only problem with Jairus Byrd and CJ Spiller was injuries. And they weren't that bad to start with.

Now people are wanting to bring in Chris Long, who has had more injury problems than Byrd and Spiller combined?

I don't get it.

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

I kind of am tired of this let's sign 30 year old players and this whole "underdog" stuff. And last thing we need is rotation. We need a every down pass rusher. We already went the older player route last season and it didn't exactly work out too well.

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

I'm tired of people that assume since a player was awesome 3 or 4 years ago, that they're still just as awesome.

I really liked him when he came into the league and he has been a really good player. Just not sure how good he will be going forward.

I've read this thread, and I'm not sure what you're not getting. I haven't seen anyone say he was going to be awesome. It seems pretty unanimous, including my own opinion, that he would be a GOOD player at the RIGHT price.

And your comparison with Byrd and Spiller? We're talking a lot less money here, or all bets are off. So what is confusing about any of that?
