The rumors of free agency are constantly swirling, and the St. Louis Rams have been linked to numerous running backs. With what's happened do far this offseason, who the Rams bring in is anybody's guess. There isn't much rhyme or rhythm to the Rams signings. These four guys have all been linked by rumored to the Rams, and would be great fits for the 3rd down back role.
The Rams have made many moves so far in free agency adding a starting caliber wide receiver, offensive guard, and outside linebacker. Does this mean that maybe they will put the number two running back position off for yet another year?
The Rams shouldn't and can't wait another year to find another running back. Steven Jackson is getting older and older and he can only take so many bumps and bruises.
Kenneth Darby is an average running back, but it is safe to say that all of the players mentioned in this slide would be upgrades over Darby.
With that said, let's look at the potential running back options for the St. Louis Rams.
