St. Louis Rams 2012 Free Agency, Wide Receivers: Ranking the Best Options

The St. Louis Rams finished last in the NFL in points per game and third down conversion percentage. Both statistics indicate the need for better playmakers, particularly at wide receiver, where Sam Bradford clearly needs better weapons.  

Jeff Fisher and the Rams front office will likely add at least two, perhaps three, wide receivers through the 2012 Free Agency and NFL Draft, especially when considering that Fisher's Tennessee Titans often carried six or even seven wide receivers on his roster, and that the Rams only have a couple of likely locks at wide receiver (Danny Amendola and Greg Salas).  

The roster makeup of Fisher's Rams will likely be similar to his Titans, so one would also expect St. Louis to carry six or seven wide receivers on the roster just as Tennessee typically did. 

When considering the Rams offensive struggles as well as the likelihood of adding multiple new wide outs to the team, the wide receiver position may arguably be the most important to adequately address in the offseason (or at least as important as the offensive line). 

Fortunately for St. Louis, the free agent talent at wide receiver, both in regard to quantity and quality, is outstanding. There will be some terrific wide receivers available for the Rams to target in free agency.

The following is a rundown of the St. Louis Rams wide receivers and their contracts, the 2012 free agent wide receivers and the five I feel the Rams should ultimately target.
