Rams showing interest in Mark Sanchez

Sanchez to St. Louis?: It hasn’t taken long for Mark Sanchez to draw interest in the open market. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher says his team has some interest in the free agent quarterback. Judging by Fisher’s comments, however, it appears that interest is as a backup option to Sam Bradford. Considering the nature of the QB position — and Bradford’s own injury history — there’s a reasonable chance that St. Louis could use an experienced reserve player. Whether that player is going to be Sanchez remains to be seen. If the former Jet doesn’t end up as a starter anywhere else in the league, he won’t find himself on many fantasy rosters either.

Jets interested in Jackson: DeSean Jackson hasn’t hit the free agent pool yet, though the Eagles are reportedly shopping the veteran receiver and could cut him if they can’t find a suitable trade offer. If the latter scenario happens, the New York Jets have expressed some interest in adding Jackson. That interest, expressed by owner Woody Johnson, was littered with qualifiers — namely about Jackson’s price tag and his compatibility in the locker room. Nonetheless, the speedster could form an intriguing pairing with newly-signed Eric Decker while re-teaming with new Jets quarterback Michael Vick. It sounds like a longshot at the moment for Jackson to land with Gang Green, but it could be a win for both sides if it comes to pass.

Steelers want RB depth: The Steelers got good production from rookie Le’Veon Bell last season. The problem is that the team has few options behind him on the depth chart. That’s an issue that head coach Mike Tomlin would like to change this season, which is why the team is looking at running backs in free agency. At the top of the list for Pittsburgh is Maurice Jones-Drew. The veteran runner was a disappointment in 2013 while trying to rebound from an injury-shortened 2012 season. If MJD were to go to the Steelers, he would be the No. 2 option to Bell but could be a quality handcuff option for fantasy owners.
