Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

Spiller has been hurt almost every year since he was drafted. Long has only had serious injuries problems in 2014. Last season, it was minor issues that kept him out of 4 games. He's no way made of glass and he would be an upgrade over anyone on this defense now

Not saying they give him JR money but a vet min contract wouldn't hurt, god forbid the team got better

I have to agree with Hagan - I'm more intrigued by Laurinaitis than Long.

Laurinatis is a inside tackling beast but he can't cover TE's and has very little value as a pass rusher.

Pass.

No I think he is done. I don't see us picking up someone who can't stay healthy anymore.

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

Like Burn said, it all depends on their asking price. At the right price, I'd take all of them.
And it's true that we've hit on a quite a few aging players that still had some gas in the tank.
I'm not against it as much as I think there may be some better options

If there are better options, I'm absolutely all for it. I just get the feeling we're going to be bargain basement shopping, which is why Long is intriguing to me as a possible low risk sign. We shall see.

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

Tamba Hali is the better option as a pass rusher. I've also got to pose the question, are we running 3-4 or 4-3? If we're running a 3-4 then Long might not fit. If we're running a 4-3, cool, but are we then making Kikiha a pass rushing DE and in turn in need of a new OLB? So many questions.

Re: Rams have cut Chris Long

Lets get Cromartie and long. Then trade up to get best NT in the draft and add some more pieces on Defense with maybe a tight end in the 2nd

I don't think there is any chance we get burned again with an aging vet (Cromartie) & he is no longer the player he once was. I'd prefer the likes of Trumaine Johnson if we were looking at a FA corner.

Stay younger, faster, stronger.
