The trade deadline came and went today, and the Rams didn’t make any kind of move. I never expected the team to do anything, so I can’t say I’m disappointed. At this point, I’m not sure if trading for any kind of impact player and giving up draft picks is the right answer. The team stood pat, and I’m fine with that.
Moving on to business, the team released RB Chauncey Washington on Monday. I have to admit that I’m a little disappointed about this move. I loved the upside of the guy, and I really liked his attitude. I’m not exactly sure how or why this all went down, but I guess he wasn’t as impressive in practice as he was with the Jets on Hard Knocks. If he was the same guy I saw on that show and in the preseason, I think this is a mistake.
In more positive news, and because I’m contractually obligated to mention him at least once in every post now that he is officially on the active roster, Danario Alexander has been name a finalist for the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week award after his four-catch, 72-yard and a touchdown performance against the Chargers. I would very much like to see him win this award, and I know most of you would as well, so Rams Nation needs to “Rock The Vote” and get him the award. Voting closes on Friday at 11 a.m., so make sure to take a few seconds out of your day(s) to cast your vote. Here is the link … NFL Rookie of the Week Vote
