St. Louis Rams' Blueprint for Winning Free Agency

As free agency nears, the St. Louis Rams are focused on upgrading their talent and entering 2013 with a playoff-caliber team. 

Last offseason, coming off of a 2-14 disaster season, there was no simple answer for the Rams moving forward. 

This season, simplicity is a luxury Jeff Fisher and Les Snead can enjoy, because there should be only one goal this spring—pump up the offense. 

But it's not as easy as finding a few weapons and calling it a day. 

On the contrary, the Rams appear to be in absolute disarray on offense. With the top three statistical weapons—Steven Jackson, Danny Amendola and Brandon Gibson—apparently out the door, the brain trust has a lot of ground to cover. 

Despite the overall team improvement in 2012, the Rams ranked just 23rd in the NFL on offense with 329.0 yards per game, while they ranked 25th in total points (299).

For a team that was already offensively challenged to begin with, losing three weapons is far from ideal.

There are some defensive needs, such as safety, but outside of the quarterback, the Rams could use help at every single offensive position. 

And considering four out the top five 2013 salaries belong to defensive players, as well as seven of the top 10 salaries, the Rams already have an astonishing percentage of their resources focused on defense. 

They need to even things out by searching for offensive help in free agency, as well as the draft. 

Read on to find out what the Rams can do to cure their offensive woes and take the next step in 2013.
