The St. Louis Rams get ready to ride the 2012 NFL Rumor mill. Up so far: Draft moves, Jeff Fisher acolytes, and somebody, anybody to help Sam Bradford out.
The St. Louis Rams are just about to begin a full-sized, lockout-free offseason, and with a new coach at the helm one rumor seems increasingly certain: Jeff Fisher will do the new-coach thing and bring some former Tennessee Titans in for tryouts whenever he gets the chance, just as Steve Spagnuolo and Scott Linehan did before him. Turf Show Times suggests DT Jason Jones as a possible early fit, and given Fred Robbins's age the 25-year-old Jones, a 2008 second-rounder, would make a lot of sense.
They've also discussed this routine as it relates to likely free agent Cortland Finnegan—and given that he's both a cornerback and ambulatory, he'd be a perfect fit for a Rams team that lost nearly every defensive back to some devastating injury or another over the course of their benighted 2011 season.
There are plenty of possible storylines for the Rams heading into 2012, but Jeff Fisher's arrival is one of the likeliest source of free agency rumors we're likely to see all the way until next August. Given how long he was there, no Tennessee Titan is safe.
