The St. Louis Rams spent the 2012 season as the youngest team in the NFL. Free agency played a part in assembling their final roster, as three defensive (LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar, CB Cortland Finnegan and DT Kendall Langford) and three offensive (linemen Barry Richardson, Robert Turner and Scott Wells) starters came to St. Louis via free-agent signings.
Wide receivers Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson—both unrestricted free agents—were the top two targets on the team last season, attracting 101 and 82 passes in their direction, respectively. St. Louis is going to need some help at the position, but that’s not the only spot where a veteran could be beneficial.
Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch listed plenty of names at safety, receiver, tight end, offensive line, outside linebacker and return specialist as potential free-agent additions for the Rams. Some of them have been mentioned in the same breath as St. Louis elsewhere, but the Rams can’t afford to sign everybody.
That just wouldn’t be fair.
