The St. Louis Rams had free-agent wide receiver Reche Caldwell in town of Thursday for a visit. Reche is a former 2nd round pick by the San Diego Chargers. Reche was an outstanding player at the University of Florida. In 2006 Caldwell led the New England Patriots in receptions (61) and yards (760), and scored 4 touchdowns. In 2007 Reche was on the Washington Redskins where he only played in 8 games catching 15 balls for 141 yards. 15 catches is more than every current Rams wideout had in 2007 except Torry Holt and Drew Bennett. This would be a very nice pickup for the Rams who need a little of everything and only have so many draft picks in the upcoming 2008 NFL Draft. He is at least worth a look. Some of these players will have to be picked up as free agents or off the street for us to fill up a competitive 53 man roster. The Redskins have already made an offer to Reche. I am kind of worried if he does come here we may over pay. Maybe Al Saunders can make decent receivers of Derek Stanley and Marques Hagans?
Rotoworld.com reports “The Rams are really scratching the bottom of the barrel here. Caldwell carries concerns about a chronic knee issue.”
AOL Fanhouse says “Washington still needs a wideout, and they have another offer on the table. And they’re still waiting to hear back … from Reche Freaking Caldwell. No, really. Good Lord, has it come to that? “
You might remember Reche most for his popping eye ball photos.
