Free agent RT Joe Barksdale left his Titans visit without a contract.
The Rams "remain in the mix" to re-sign Barksdale. St. Louis would be wise to bring him back. The Rams have the worst offensive-line depth chart in the league. And it's not close. It currently stands: LT Greg Robinson, LG Rodger Saffold, C Demetrius Rhaney, RG Brandon Washington, and RT Garrett Reynolds. Apr 10 - 11:22 AM

Free agent OT Joseph Barksdale is visiting the Titans Thursday.

Barksdale, 27 years old and a solid 29-game starter for the Rams over the last two seasons, would slide in at right tackle opposite left tackle Taylor Lewan. Why Barksdale's market has been so slow to develop remains a mystery. Perhaps teams are worried about the lingering effects of his war against Marlo Stanfield.
Apr 7 - 12:48 PM

ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports the Rams remain interested in free agent OT Joe Barksdale, but "gets the sense they wouldn't mind upgrading at that spot."

The Rams have brought in Stanford OT Andrus Peat and Louisville's Jamon Brown for visits, and have pre-draft meetings lined up with Miami's Ereck Flowers and Pittsburgh's T.J. Clemmings. Barksdale is coming off a solid 2014, but hasn't drawn any interest since mid-March. The Rams may look to improve on Barksdale with a priority draft pick.
Apr 4 - 3:09 PM

Titans GM Ruston Webster hinted the team has tabled its interest in free agent OT Joseph Barksdale until after the draft.

Aside from the Rams, the Titans were the only team known to express interest in Barksdale following the start of free agency. The 27-year-old simply has zero market, and will likely end up returning to the Rams on a team-friendly contract.
Mar 30 - 3:20 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Titans "continue to have interest" in free agent RT Joseph Barksdale.

Per Caplan, the Rams also remain interested in re-signing their 2014 right tackle. After getting off to a quiet start, Barksdale's market has been clarifying in recent days. It shouldn't be long before he lands a deal.
Mar 17 - 1:44 PM

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the Rams remain interested in re-signing free agent RT Joe Barksdale.

Rotoworld's top remaining free-agent tackle, Barksdale's market has been slow to develop. He hasn't visited with any teams, and could ultimately return to St. Louis. 27-year-old Barksdale was the Rams' best offensive lineman last season. Barksdale is likely to get a deal in the range of Jermey Parnell's contract (5 years, $32M).
Mar 13 - 5:14 PM reports the Titans will "consider" free agent RT Joseph Barksdale.

Barksdale's market has been ice cold, so perhaps the Titans are spying a bargain. He'd slot in at right tackle opposite second-year pro Taylor Lewan.
Mar 13 - 2:01 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports free agent OT Joseph Barksdale's market has been "strangely quiet," and that he's yet to take a visit.

Jim Thomas reported Wednesday that the Rams may get Barksdale back "on the rebound." Perhaps this is what the Rams were counting on when they let Barksdale hit the open market, a move that surprised some. Barksdale was the Rams' best lineman last season, and is only 27.
Mar 12 - 2:13 PM

The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports the Rams are thinking they "may get free agent RT Joe Barksdale on the rebound."

Barksdale is our top free-agent tackle left, but beat writer Jim Thomas believes Barksdale could be "overestimating his market value." We're not sure how Jermey Parnell can get a $32 million deal, yet Barksdale has been greeted with crickets. He's arguably been the Rams' best lineman the past two years.
Mar 11 - 9:31 AM

ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano hears New York is not interested in free agent RT Joe Barksdale.

Barksdale would make sense for the Giants as they look to transition current RT Justin Pugh to guard, but his asking price may be too high. Barksdale is reportedly looking for a contract in excess of $6 million annually. He is Rotoworld's No. 4 available free-agent tackle.
Mar 7 - 8:58 AM

Free agent RT Joe Barksdale will test the open market.

The Rams were in talks to re-sign Barksdale, but reportedly didn't come close to his asking price. Barksdale is seeking in excess of $6 million annually. Rotoworld ranks Barksdale as the No. 4 available free-agent tackle.
Mar 6 - 5:12 PM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner reports free agent RT Joe Barksdale may net a contract worth around $7 million per year.

That's the top of the right-tackle pay scale, as Gosder Cherilus is currently the league's highest-paid right tackle at $7 million annually. It's an awfully steep price for Barksdale, and ultimately, we'd expect him to fall short of the mark. He's more likely to slide in closer to $6 million. The Rams should be doing everything they can to lock up their most durable lineman. Barksdale just turned 27 and has appeared in all 32 games the past two seasons.
Mar 4 - 12:49 PM

Rams GM Les Snead said at the Combine he expects RT Joe Barksdale to test the free agent market.

Quietly one of the league's better young right tackles, Barksdale should find a solid market after recently turning 27. The Rams badly need offensive line help, so it's surprising they would potentially let a player like Barksdale get away. Players usually don't re-sign after they hit the market.
Feb 18 - 3:40 PM

Rams contract-year RT Joe Barksdale reiterated his desire to re-sign with St. Louis.

Aside from maybe the Packers' Bryan Bulaga, Barksdale is scheduled to be the top free-agent right tackle. He doesn't have the injury concerns like Bulaga. A year after grading out as a top-eight right tackle at Pro Football Focus, Barksdale is the site's top-ranked run blocker at the position. But he's given up 24 hurries in pass protection. The Rams should cut LT Jake Long and C Scott Wells in the offseason and allocate some of that money to Barksdale.

Contract-year RT Joe Barksdale wants to re-sign with the Rams.

Barksdale has flown under the radar in St. Louis. The former third-round pick of the Raiders appeared in all 16 games last season, making 13 starts, and graded out as a top-eight right tackle at Pro Football Focus. He's a plus pass protector. Barksdale was a four-star high school recruit to LSU.
