Rams Say No To V-Jax

So, I did a whole post yesterday on why the Rams won’t be bringing in Vincent Jackson, and league sources revealed today that the team is no longer interested in the troubled wide receiver. Can’t say I’m surprised. The fit just wasn’t right for this team, and he will probably make his way to Minnesota sometime before the deadline.

It’s Tuesday, so that means there were several free agents in town for workouts today. Former first-round pick Damione Lewis was among a group that included RB Kevin Jones; WRs Reggie Brown and Yamon Figurs; DTs Dre Moore and Jimmy Saddler; CB Cletis Gordon; and LB Eric Alexander. I’m not blown away by any of these guys, although Jones and Brown are decent players. I don’t know if any of these guys can make us better, and none were signed by the team anyway.

A more intriguing player to hit the market today was wide receiver Hank Baskett, who was cut by the Eagles. I would like the fit here, but early reports are that Baskett will be heading to Minnesota. Don’t know what that means for Jackson, but it seems like the Rams aren’t getting involved with any of these guys.
