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.

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.

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.

Free agent G/T Garrett Reynolds is visiting the Rams on Wednesday.

Reynolds, 27, played for Rams OL coach Paul Boudreau in Atlanta from 2009-2011. He can play both guard spots and right tackle, but would be an extremely underwhelming signing if he were being inked as a starter.

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner considers it a certainty that the team will exercise DT Michael Brockers' fifth-year team option for 2016.

This past year, the option came with a $5 million-plus salary, which is more than fair, even if Brockers has yet to make a huge impact as the No. 14 overall pick of the 2012 draft. Brockers has 11.5 sacks through three seasons and received plus marks for his run defense last season. He'll remain a fixture on early downs before coming off the field in favor of Nick Fairley on passing downs.

Rams re-signed WR Kenny Britt to a two-year, $14 million contract.

The contract is worth "up to" $14 million, but Britt stunningly got $4.3 million guaranteed. It is a big investment in an injury-prone and inconsistent player, though Rams coach Jeff Fisher seems to have a knack for getting the most out of Britt. Britt is currently penciled in as the starting outside receiver opposite the recovering Brian Quick (shoulder surgery, questionable for training camp), but the Rams should be looking to add more wide receiver talent this offseason.

New Rams DT Nick Fairley says he's down to 280 pounds, and will actually work to put weight on before the season.

Fairley's weight was a constant issue during his four years in Detroit, but he had it mostly under control for 2014. Fairley's Combine weigh in was 291 pounds. That's probably the area the Rams will want him in for 2015.
Mar 13 - 2:16 PM

Rams signed DT Nick Fairley, formerly of the Lions, to a one-year, $5 million contract.

The Rams have arguably the deepest defensive line in the league, loaded with five former first-round picks in Fairley, 2014 DROY Aaron Donald, DT Michael Brockers, RE Robert Quinn, and LE Chris Long. Fairley will slide in behind starters Brockers and Donald, but should be a fixture on passing downs, replacing Brockers next to Donald. This front-four is downright scary.
Mar 13 - 12:09 PM

Rams signed DE/OLB Akeem Ayers, formerly of the Patriots, to a two-year contract.

Ayers is an ex-Titan but has no connection to coach Jeff Fisher, who left Tennessee the year before Ayers was drafted. The 25-year-old is a hybrid stand-up edge rusher who has yet to find a real position in the NFL. He has pass-rush juice and can cover tight ends. Ayers will be a sub-package player for St. Louis.
Mar 12 - 8:13 PM

Free agent DE/LB Akeem Ayers is currently visiting Rams Park.

St. Louis is attempting to enhance a strength, flirting with Ayers and Nick Fairley as potential supplements to an already-elite defensive front seven. Ayers seems like a good bet to land with the Rams from the standpoint that he's drawn no known interest elsewhere. He is a 25-year-old edge presence.
Mar 12 - 12:59 PM

Free agent DT Nick Fairley will visit the Rams on Thursday.

Imagine if the Rams added Fairley to their already-dominant defensive line. In St. Louis, Fairley would form a three-headed monster at defensive tackle with 2012 first-rounder Michael Brockers and last year's Defensive Rookie of the Year Aaron Donald. Fairley left his visit with the Bengals on Wednesday.
Mar 12 - 9:41 AM

NFL.com's Mike Silver reports free agent Kenny Britt is expected to re-sign with the Rams.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Wednesday that the sides were "in discussions." Britt has had his only success under coach Jeff Fisher, so remaining in St. Louis makes sense as long as the money is right.
Mar 11 - 6:38 PM

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Browns inquired about Rams QB Austin Davis earlier this offseason.

The Browns apparently brought up Davis when the teams were having Sam Bradford discussions. The Davis ship has presumably sailed after Cleveland lavished $6.5 million guaranteed on Josh McCown. Davis will compete with Case Keenum to back up Nick Foles in 2015.
