NFL fantasy football: James Jones ready to be No. 1 receiver

Green Bay Packers WR James Jones was on “NFL AM” on Tuesday morning and he said he was ready to be the top receiver for the team, if needed. “I’m ready. … I’m ready to take in that role if we don’t get Greg [Jennings] back,” Jones said.

Reaction and reflections from the third preseason game (St. Louis Rams perspective)

Late Saturday night, we gave you some quick-hitting thoughts from the Cowboys third preseason game, with some reaction and reflections. But we kinda ignored the St. Louis Rams. So… want some Rams tidbits? – I’ve been fairly positive this offseason on Sam Bradford, who is primed for a bounce-back year. Under new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, I’m thinking Bradford gets back to three-steps-and-out just like the West Coast QB he used to be. Saturday night, however, was not that kind of night. He was 6 of 17 for 64 yards, and he never looked comfortable. The offense didn’t move. “Of course, we want to be more productive,” coach Jeff Fisher said. “He missed a couple, and then he got hit too much.” That about sums it up. […]

My story: Using the Giants as inspiration, the Rams are searching for dominant units

Usually you hear teams, especially the bad ones, looking to build one player at a time. They talk about increasing depth across the board and getting talent everywhere. Well, the Rams might not consider themselves to be rebuilding, but they are definitely doing some renovations. Yet, as GM Les Snead told me in his office last week, they have an interesting way of thinking about it. Instead of looking to even out the roster and add skill at positions of need, he’s hoping to create dominant units first. Kind of like the Giants, how they keep re-stocking their already nasty defensive line. It’s why St. Louis added Michael Brockers to an already solid defensive line in the first round and […]

A reminder of how far the NFL rookies have to go to catch up to the veterans…

Before I jump in the car and drive to Owings Mills for Ravens rookie mini-camp, I just wanted to mention one thing that stuck in my mind from my trip to St. Louis on Friday. It was, by all accounts, a successful experience for the participants. But what does that mean? Basically, that they only began the methodical process of figuring stuff out. Seriously, I was reminded once again how far these rookies are from being ready. And it has nothing to do with talent, obviously. It’s just that being in the NFL, and thriving in the league, takes so much. Coach Jeff Fisher pointed this out when describing what he achieved following the first session. “We had a meet […]

Reflections and reactions after a day at Rams rookie minicamp

So, as you probably saw on Twitter, I spent the day in St. Louis chillin’ at Rams rookie minicamp. First time there, actually, and it was a good time. I’ll have plenty more to say about this tomorrow and later in the week (look for an article on Tuesday) … Oh, and I said this about coach Jeff Fisher’s massive class of rookies on “Total Access.”
