NFL Free Agency starts on March 9th, and the next few days will feature several Los Angeles Rams rumors. While free agency doesn't officially start until Wednesday, the league has "legal tampering" days leading up to the start of the new team year, meaning teams can discuss contracts with any player - although a deal can't be signed until Wednesday. With that in mind, here are a few of the more interesting rumors and news tidbits on the Rams.
Rams to take chance on Robert Griffin III?
The Rams adding Griffin would make for a great story, given that they're the team that received a king's ransom from Washington in exchange for the Redskins moving up in the draft to get Griffin. The Rams badly need a QB, as Nick Foles was a complete disaster at QB this year. Case Keenum was better, but he's not the long-term answer. It's fair to wonder if Griffin is the answer, but he fits the Rams' scheme and is better than Foles. If Griffin wants to play now, his best bet might be signing with the Rams - and LA would be smart to kick the tires to see if he's interested.
Rams to lose Chris Long to Redskins?
Los Angeles released defensive lineman Chris Long earlier this offseason, but they were still interested in bringing him back on a cheaper contract. Long reciprocated that interest, but he wanted to see what he could get in free agency, and the Washington Redskins have shown a lot of interest in him. Long took a visit to D.C. today, and Washington is now expected to sign him.
William Hayes to Cardinals?
