The Rams are expected to re-sign restricted free agent FB/TE Cory Harkey.

Harkey will likely be given the lowest possible tender. With Lance Kendricks a free agent, Harkey should return as the No. 2 tight end behind Jared Cook.

New Rams QBs coach Chris Weinke says Sam Bradford is the second-best quarterback he's ever evaluated coming out of college.

That's behind only Andrew Luck. We're obviously not concerned with Weinke's draft evaluations, but the more Rams coaches talk up Bradford, the more apparent it becomes he's going to remain in St. Louis.

Tre Mason - RB - Rams

Rams coach Jeff Fisher says Tre Mason sat on the bench for the first four games of 2014 because he needed to "learn how to play without the football."

He wasn't asked to do much pass protection at Auburn, so it's understandable why Mason would need a few games to get acclimated. Mason was a stud once he began seeing regular carries, averaging 70.7 rushing yards per game over his last seven contests. If Mason stays healthy, he should be a safe bet for 250-plus carries as the Rams' no-doubt top back.

ESPN Rams reporter Nick Wagoner still considers Jake Long more likely to be released than return on a restructured contract.

The cap-strapped Rams can free up $8 million by releasing the 2013 free-agent signee, who has ended both of his St. Louis campaigns on injured reserve. The team has already said it is moving forward with Greg Robinson at left tackle. Going on 30 with an injury history as long as the Appalachian Trail, Long will likely think long and hard about hanging up his cleats.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports "no team" has contacted the Rams about trading for Sam Bradford.

Rapsheet's report comes via "sources informed of situation." Tuesday afternoon's Bradford-to-the-Bills rumor has been thoroughly debunked, and was likely the product of Bradford's camp as he tries to avoid a pay cut in St. Louis. Bradford's $13 million salary, injury history and come-and-go effectiveness conspire to make his trade value almost nonexistent.

WGR 550 Buffalo calls the Sam Bradford/Bills rumor "nothing but smoke."

Joe Buscaglia's report comes via "multiple people." The report has now been shot down from all sides, including the Rams. Too much would have to happen for the deal to make sense for either side. Bradford's most likely endgame remains remaining with the Rams on a reworked contract.
Feb 24 - 3:55 PM

A "source in the know" tells the Buffalo News that the Bills are not pursuing Sam Bradford.

The sentiment is seconded by WGR 550 Buffalo. A story followed by a denial is a standard tit for tat in the offseason rumor mill, but this contradiction comes barely 30 minutes after the initial report. We definitely tend to believe the "Bills are not pursuing Bradford" line of thinking. SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber is likely on the money in his guess that the report is little more than an effort from Bradford's camp to gain leverage in extension talks with the Rams.

Yahoo's Rand Getlin reports the Bills are "pursuing a trade" for Sam Bradford.

League sources tell Getlin the Bills' new coaching staff believes Bradford can "maximize the value of their wide receivers and help them win now." In theory, Bradford is certainly an upgrade on E.J. Manuel, but he's an injury-prone mess currently due $13 million. That, coupled with the fact that the Bills only have six 2015 draft picks makes a trade extremely unlikely. Most signs have suggested Bradford will get yet another shot at establishing himself under center in St. Louis.

ESPN's Nick Wagoner expects the Rams to re-sign free agent Kenny Britt.

Britt could be allowed to test free agency, but the Rams are his most likely landing spot. All of Britt's best seasons have come under Jeff Fisher, and he set career highs in 2014 with 48 catches. Britt is Rotoworld's No. 7 available wideout.

Free agent TE Lance Kendricks is seeking $4 million annually.

A blocking and red-zone specialist, Kendricks had a 27/259/5 line as the No. 2 tight end behind Jared Cook last year. The Rams are fully expected to let him test the open market. Kendricks will be one of free agency's bigger overpays if teams are willing to meet his asking price.

ESPN's Nick Wagoner believes "it's not out of the question" the Rams bring back OT Jake Long.

Coming back from his second consecutive ACL surgery and due $10.5 million, Long is expected to be released if he doesn't take a pay cut. The Rams have already committed to Greg Robinson as their left tackle, but Long could be moved to right tackle or guard. The Rams would save $8 million by cutting Long.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the Browns will "take a real run" at trying to trade for Sam Bradford.

Relaying Combine buzz, Cole reports the Browns will aggressively pursue quarterbacks, and Bradford is at the "top of their list," with free agent Josh McCown as a fallback option. Cole floats a second- or third-round pick as potential trade compensation. Bradford has reportedly informed the Rams he will not take a pay cut, which may complicate his future in St. Louis. If he falls out of the Rams' plans -- which still seems unlikely -- the Browns would love to be there to catch him.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher says LT Greg Robinson is recovering from toe surgery.

The toe injury could partially be to blame for Robinson's lackluster rookie season. Fisher said he "doesn't expect it to be an issue moving forward." With LT Robinson and LG Rodger Saffold their only surefire starters, the Rams' need positions on the line are center, right guard, and right tackle.

When asked about Sam Bradford at the NFL Combine, coach Jeff Fisher said "we're counting on him" and called reports the Rams granted Bradford permission to seek a trade "inaccurate."

Rumors have swirled around Bradford all offseason, but this quote should put those to rest. Fisher points out Bradford has gone 5-2-1 against NFC West opponents during his tenure in St. Louis. He's injury-prone and expensive, but the Rams won't find a better quarterback in the draft or free agency.

Rams hired Chris Weinke as QBs coach.

Weinke won a national championship at Florida State in 1999 and the Heisman Trophy in 2000. His NFL career was much different, composing a 2-18 record with the Panthers and 49ers. Since 2010, Weinke has been running IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., training high school, college, and pro quarterbacks. Some of the more notable signal callers he's worked with recently are Cam Newton, Russell Wilson, Ryan Tannehill, and Teddy Bridgewater. It's a solid get for the Rams.
