Rams re-signed restricted free agent FS Rodney McLeod to a one-year, $2.356 million contract.

McLeod and SS T.J. McDonald each played over 1,000 snaps for the Rams last season. McLeod is tiny at 5'11/183, but graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 18 cover safety and laid a couple big licks on receivers downfield last season. The Rams could use an upgrade on the back end, but McLeod is plenty serviceable.

Rams re-signed restricted free agent FB/TE Cory Harkey to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

Harkey will slot back in as the Rams' fullback and No. 3 tight end after Lance Kendricks re-upped on a three-year contract last month. He's not a great lead blocker but has good hands and can move out in space as a bigger man.
Apr 20 - 6:53 PM

Rams re-signed restricted free agent QB Austin Davis to a one-year, $1.542 million contract.

The Rams tendered Davis at the lowest level, and it wouldn't have required any other team to part with a draft pick to sign him. It's a sign neither St. Louis nor the rest of the league thinks that highly of Davis. He'll compete with Case Keenum and a rookie for the Rams' backup job behind new starter Nick Foles.
Apr 20 - 6:50 PM

Rams re-signed exclusive rights free agent RB Chase Reynolds to a one-year, $580,000 contract.

Reynolds led the Rams with 19 special teams tackles in 2014. He should have an inside track on a roster spot.
Apr 8 - 4:30 PM

Lance Kendricks took a slightly smaller offer to re-sign with the Rams rather than sign with the Falcons.

One of the reasons Kendricks stayed (at four years and $18.5M) was due to a promise of an expanded role in the passing game. We'll believe it when we see it, especially with Jared Cook still looming. Kendricks, whose value is more tied to versatility and blocking, is coming off a meager 27-259-5 campaign. The Falcons settled for cheapies Tony Moeaki and Jacob Tamme as free agent additions at tight end.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher believes "we should see a lot more out of" Kenny Britt in 2015.

Britt played 16 games for only the second time in his career and caught a career-high 48 passes last season. The Rams have done nothing to upgrade their pass-catching corps this offseason, so Britt has a decent shot to enter 2015 as the de facto No. 1 receiver. With Nick Foles providing better quarterback play, that could mean an even better season for Britt, though he will struggle to be anything more than a WR3 even if he stays healthy.

Coach Jeff Fisher expects Benny Cunningham to be his third-down back again this season.

Even after Tre Mason seized feature back duties midway through last season, he ceded passing work to Cunningham. Benny finished with 45 catches for 532 yards and one touchdown. "He’s just really good out of the backfield. He’s probably the better protector of the three," Fisher said. The roles in St. Louis' backfield appear set as Zac Stacy will back up workhorse Mason and Cunningham will slide in on pass downs. Isaiah Pead, coming off a torn ACL, could be the odd man out.

Rams re-signed C Tim Barnes to a one-year contract.

The Rams didn't tender Barnes an offer as a restricted free agent, but are bringing him back for under a million bucks. St. Louis' offensive line is dangerously thin. The team would be in serious trouble if Barnes were asked to play snaps.
Mar 30 - 6:39 PM

Free agent G/C Tim Barnes is visiting the Chiefs Monday.

The Rams did not tender Barnes as a restricted free agent after the season even though it would have cost them just $1.54M. He's not the answer as Rodney Hudson's replacement.
Mar 30 - 11:31 AM

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner expects Brian Quick (shoulder surgery) to miss the team's entire offseason program, and considers him questionable for training camp.

Per Wagoner, the team "privately hopes" Quick will be ready for camp. As previously reported, coach Jeff Fisher hedged on the question Wednesday. "It was a very, very difficult early rehab process," Fisher said. "It was an extensive, extensive injury. He's starting to see the light now." It sounds like the team's ultimate goal for Quick is Week 1, meaning he could begin camp on the active/PUP list, and miss some preseason action.

Speaking Wednesday, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Brian Quick (shoulder surgery) is "starting to see the light," but hedged when asked if he'd be ready for camp.

Quick's injury was severe, as he suffered both a dislocated shoulder and torn rotator cuff. It requires a methodical rehab. Barring setbacks, he should be ready for Week 1, but it's possible he'll be limited in preseason action. Neither Quick — who is in a contract year — nor the Rams need to take any chances with his recovery.
Mar 25 - 5:01 PM

Updating a previous item, Kenny Britt's two-year deal with the Rams has a base value of $9.15 million and can void after one season.

The initially reported numbers -- $14 million over two years -- were obviously agent-inflated. Britt did get an initial $1.5 million roster bonus, and his 2015 base salary of $2.55 million is guaranteed, but the Rams can cut him or, more technically, "void" the deal next offseason and encounter zero dead money for 2016. It's really a one-year, $4.05 million commitment.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner confirms Tre Mason "looks to be entrenched" as the starting running back.

Mason didn't play for the first six weeks of his rookie year due to a lack of experience in pass protection. Once the Rams turned him loose, he showed plenty of big-play spark (six carries of 20+ yards) and an ability to handle heavy workloads (18.1 touches/game over the final nine weeks). Benny Cunningham and Zac Stacy will be mere insurance policies behind Mason in 2015.

The Rams remain interested in re-signing free agent C Tim Barnes.

The Rams non-tendered Barnes, and would likely only want him back at a minimum salary. Barnes has also drawn interest from the Chiefs.
Mar 18 - 6:32 PM

Rams signed G/T Garrett Reynolds to a two-year, $2.2 million contract.

Reynolds appeared in 10 games (four starts) as a versatile reserve for Detroit last year. He can play both guard and right tackle, and knows OL coach Paul Boudreau's scheme from their time in Atlanta. Reynolds' signing should not impact whether the Rams bring back free agent RT Joe Barskdale.
