    Peters was a guest on NFL TV yesterday... Talented definitely but really an odd personality. Asked who his top 5 corners are and he listed himself at 1, 3, 5. Did not want to rank his peers in order of respect.

    According to SI's Peter King, Kansas City apparently called all other 31 teams and only Indy, San Fran and the Rams were interested. He did add that Wade Phillips was the type of coach who could put up and manage high maintenance personalities. Peters did rattle off the mainstays of the Ram team so he already has done his homework. Looking forward to that game against Kansas City in Mexico City... The press will have a field day.

    Oh and it will fun seeing Peters against "Angry" Doug Baldwin when they play Seattle.

    He's a strange young man. I'm excited to see what he can do though, he's clearly a tremendous talent. I definitely think Wade is going to be able to get the most out of him.

    Johnson and Conley could form a very good defensive secondary along with Joseph and Melifonwu.

    On topic: Rams trading Quinn to Miami... Rooting for these locals on the side.

    Yeah basically a 4th for Quinn who was about to cost too much... I'm not sure I like it. This FO did terrifically in the draft so I trust them. Hopefully the money let's us keep Watkins around. I like him a lot and think a full season will make him look more natural.

    I hadn't changed the title all season long so he teased me about it. I changed it to suit him better. :D

    DE Bennett (to Philly) and TE Jimmy Graham (back to Nawlins) outta the Northwest. Sherman talking of leaving (Oakland?). Seattle on a rebuild.

    Unless Arizona gets Cousins, Rams only competition is San Fran.

    Rams trade Ogletree/7th for 4th/6th.

    I don't love the move. I'm not a big Ogletree fan, but he was a solid presence and a good locker room voice. He just never was cut out for Mike back. I'm not sure what motivated the move to put him there.

    I imagine this was freed up money to pursue Sammy and secure Donald's contract, but it is a bummer. I haven't looked into the draft yet to see what kind of LBs are there.

    I am very happy about the demise of the Seahawks. I go to Seattle to visit family once or twice a year and it is just insufferable up there.

    Seattle had lucked out the last few playoffs... That muffed onside kick by Green Bay. The missed gimme field goal by Minnesota.

    Talib to the Rams means that Crabtree's chain is safe unless the Rams and Raiders meet in the Super Bowl... :) A 5th round draft pick and freeing up $11 mil? Sounds like a cap space room for Cousins in Denver.

    Just found out that the Rams also acquired ex-Green Bay CB Sam Shields too.

    I'm not a fan of Talib. Very talented, but a jerk.

    Oh well. He's a Ram now. That secondary is looking dangerous. We need some linebackers though.

    Forgot about the schedule. :)

    We play San Fran too which means Sherman-Crabtree II.

    3 years $48 million with $30 million guaranteed is too much for him. Surprised he got more than Allen Robinson.
