Kenny Britt's one-year deal with the Rams contains just $550,000 in guaranteed money.

The guaranteed money comes in the form of a $50,000 signing bonus and $500,000 of his $1 million base salary. There's plenty more available in incentives, which in theory should keep Britt motivated. He'll get a $100,000 roster bonus if he's on the 53-man roster for the first game and then $6,250 every time he's on the 46-man gameday roster. It's a low-risk deal for the Rams.

"Several" NFL front office executives told CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora they believe Sam Bradford could "still fetch a strong return" if the Rams were to place him on the trade block.

La Canfora makes it crystal clear he isn't reporting the Rams are shopping Bradford, but it's an idea worth pondering. GMs around the league loved Bradford coming out of Oklahoma in 2010. "They love the kid, at least the ones I've talked to about him," one executive said. "He's still a pretty popular figure with them. And everyone knows he's a tremendous kid. If he was available I would expect there to be a lot of coaches in personnel meetings who would think they would be the guy to get him to fulfill his potential." Bradford's career to this point has been a disappointment, but he is still only 26 with a lot of theoretical talent. Owed $14.015 million in 2014, Bradford's contract remains a major stumbling block.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch expects Brian Quick's playing time to suffer most if the Kenny Britt signing works out.

In two seasons since getting selected 33rd overall, Quick has totaled just 29 catches for 458 yards and four touchdowns. And like Britt, he's a big-bodied outside wideout that profiles as an "X" receiver. If Britt's knee is right and his head is on straight, Quick may not even get the 361 snaps he saw in 2013.

Greg Reid - DB - Rams

Rams CB Greg Reid was arrested Saturday in Lowndes County, Georgia for violating his probation.

Reid's probation stems from a 2012 arrest for possession of marijuana and driving on a suspended license. He's currently still in jail and is being held without bond. Reid was just signed by the Rams last week.

Rams signed WR Kenny Britt, formerly of the Titans, to a one-year, $1.4 million contract.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Britt can earn up to $2.9 million. It's a minimal gamble by the Rams. There's no denying Britt's talent, as he has previously flashed No. 1 receiver skills. But we haven't seen it much since 2010. Britt has battled knee issues the past few years and could possibly be damaged goods. He also hasn't been a model citizen, racking up multiple off-field incidents. However, Britt is still just 25 years old. He could easily become the Rams' No. 1 receiver in 2014. At 6-foot-3 and 223 pounds, Britt is an ideal X receiver.

Coach Jeff Fisher said he expects the Rams to do a better job of using Tavon Austin "now that we know what he's capable of."

Austin was a disappointment as the No. 8 overall pick, posting a 40-418-4 line while playing on just 50.5 percent of his possible offensive snaps. The Rams must do a better job of getting him in space. "I think another year in the program, in the offense, OTAs, training camp, you’ll see more production," Fisher said. Getting Sam Bradford back healthy will help, but Austin dropped too many passes and too often failed to make big plays in small areas last season.

Rams LCB Trumaine Johnson is a player the team wants to "let breathe" a bit in 2014.

It's part of the reason the Rams released CB Cortland Finnegan earlier this month. They want Johnson and RCB Janoris Jenkins to take the next step in their development and not have to look over their shoulders at a veteran like Finnegan. Johnson has the size (6-foot-2, 208) that every team looks for. Quarterbacks managed just a 74.5 passer rating while throwing at Johnson last season.

Coach Jeff Fisher says the Rams have yet to have any discussions with teams about trading the No. 2 overall pick.

The Rams are very likely interested in trading down regardless of what Fisher says, but any potential deal likely won't happen until the draft. Fisher did suggest St. Louis could pass on Sammy Watkins if it holds onto the No. 2 overall pick, and hasn't dismissed the possibility of taking Jadeveon Clowney. (Not that coachspeak about draft prospects means anything this time of year.) OT Greg Robinson is another strong possibility if the Rams stay put.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk that free agent Kenny Britt is "still evaluating his options."

GM Les Snead hinted Tuesday that the Rams were close to an agreement with the ex-Titan, but nothing's developed over the past 48 hours. The Redskins are reportedly still in the mix, as well. Britt is clearly holding out hope for a better deal, but he shouldn't hold his breath. Thanks to his injury history, off-the-field issues and poor 2013, Britt is likely limited to take-it-or-leave-it offers.
Mar 27 - 7:17 PM

Rams agreed to terms with QB Shaun Hill, formerly of the Lions, on a one-year contract.

Hill, 34, visited the Rams in free agency's opening week and was always expected to sign with St. Louis. He makes his offseason home just a couple hours from St. Louis. Hill has attempted just 16 passes the past three seasons but boasts a 13-13 career record and an 85.9 passer rating. He'll run the first-team offense for however long Sam Bradford (ACL) is sidelined this spring.

Zac Stacy - RB - Rams

Coach Jeff Fisher said "over time" Zac Stacy will "probably be that 70-percent of the carries guy."

Stacy is going to be Fisher's Chris Johnson. Johnson handled 925 of the 1,413 rushing attempts under Fisher from 2008-2010, which equates to a 65.5 percent clip. Take away Vince Young's carries and that number rises to over 70 percent. Fisher doesn't have a mobile quarterback in St. Louis. This is welcome news for fantasy owners. Stacy is going to be the focal point of the offense and should play all three downs, even though he's not a great pass catcher. As long as the Rams hang around in games and Stacy stays healthy, he should have no problem eclipsing 300 carries in 2014. Stacy is on the RB1/2 fence.

A team source tells ESPN that Washington is still interested in free agent Kenny Britt.

Per reporter John Keim, Washington is "just waiting for (Britt) to make up his mind." Britt made visits to Carolina, St. Louis, Buffalo, New England and Washington, but the Patriots have ruled themselves out as a destination. Rams GM Les Snead put his team's odds of signing Britt at "better than 50 percent." Britt should reach a decision sometime in the next 48 hours.

Rams agreed to terms with DT Alex Carrington, formerly of the Bills, on a one-year contract.

A versatile lineman, Carrington was limited to three games and 171 snaps by a torn quad last season. He'll provide an interior presence in St. Louis, creating pressure between ends Robert Quinn and Chris Long. Three months shy of his 27th birthday, Carrington fortifies a Rams defensive line that needs more pass rush. Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford are run stoppers first.
Mar 25 - 4:18 PM

Rams GM Les Snead said the team has a "better than 50 percent" chance of signing free agent Kenny Britt.

St. Louis was Britt's first visit of free agency. He then went to New England, Washington, and Buffalo. The Patriots have already said they won't sign Britt. The Rams give Britt his best opportunity to be a No. 1 receiver and potentially revive his career. Britt is expected to make a decision in the next couple days.
Mar 25 - 3:52 PM

Owner Bob Kraft confirmed the Patriots won't be signing free agent Kenny Britt.

"We won't be signing him," Kraft said. "That won't happen." Britt visited the Pats last week. Coach/GM Bill Belichick wasn't even present for the meeting. Britt is expected to make a decision where to sign within the next couple days. Other teams previously linked to Britt are the Rams, Redskins, Bills, and Panthers.
