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.
Wed, Aug 20, 2014 01:56:00 PM

Joe Barksdale is expected to be the Rams' starting left tackle in Week 7 against the Packers.

That sound you hear is Clay Matthews licking his chops. Barksdale, a heavy-legged waist bender out of LSU, will take the place of injured LT Wayne Hunter (back). The fact that St. Louis' offense has been remotely functional at all this season is a credit to the coaching staff considering the sorry state of this offensive line. They have Barry Richardson at right tackle, lost C Scott Wells and LT Rodger Saffold, and start Rob Turner at left guard.
Fri, Oct 19, 2012 03:08:00 PM

Rams claimed OT Joseph Barksdale off waivers from the Raiders.

OT Ty Nsekhe was waived in a corresponding move. The Giants were reportedly also interested in Barksdale, but the Rams had the higher claim. Barksdale was a third-round pick just last year, but had yet to be active this season. He appeared in all 16 games as a rookie, however, and should be in line for a decent amount of snaps along the Rams' banged up and ineffective line.
Thu, Sep 27, 2012 05:22:00 PM

Raiders waived OT Joseph Barksdale.

New GM Reggie McKenzie continues to clean up the old regime's mess. Barksdale was a 2011 third-round pick that appeared in no games this year and ends his Raider career with zero starts. He'll attract attention on the open market thanks to his 39 college starts at LSU and 6'4/325 frame.
Wed, Sep 26, 2012 10:21:00 AM

The Raiders are expected to sign a veteran right tackle as competition or insurance for third-rounder Joseph Barksdale.

If they don't succeed in re-signing Mario Henderson, Langston Walker, or Khalif Barnes, the Raiders will look outside the organization. A tackle signing "will happen," says beat writer Jerry McDonald.
