St. Louis Rams' Rebuilt Offensive Line Finally Available For Sam Bradford Vs. Cowboys

If Sam Bradford seems a little more ambulatory than usual Saturday night, while you're watching the Rams vs. Cowboys game, there's a reason: center Scott Wells will finally play. The St. Louis Rams signed him to a four-year, $24 million deal in the offseason, and he represents their only major attempt to upgrade an offensive line that was almost vindictively bad in front of Bradford all last year.

Wells, a seventh-round pick back in 2004, made his first Pro Bowl last year but had been starting on the Green Bay Packers' somewhat more successful offensive line since 2006. He probably won't play a lot in Pretend Week 3, but his performance in the regular season will play a big part in whether Sam Bradford finally breaks out, or at least avoids breaking down, in his third year as the Rams' beleaguered starting quarterback.

Spending draft picks on offensive linemen hasn't worked extremely well for the Rams so far; here's hoping spending money goes better. The Rams, 1-1 in the Pretend Season, and the Cowboys meet at Cowboys Stadium at 7:00 PM CDT.
