Quintin Mikell Bound For STL?


This is normally the time of the offseason when we could look at the potential free agents and try to decide who we would like to see the Rams pursue, but this lockout is really screwing things up. As it it, we are stuck with conjecture and innuendo about which players may or may not be available when this dispute finally ends. Speaking of conjecture, it looks like Eagles safety Quintin Mikell may be prepared to hit the open market. According to an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mikell does not believe he will be back with the Eagles next season. He apparently cleaned out his locker a few weeks ago without incident, and he has not been invited to work out with other Eagles players.

Considering the situation the Rams find themselves in at the safety position, I have to believe that Mikell will be on the team’s radar when free agency kicks in. He’s the kind of veteran player Spags likes, and his time in the NFC East means the Rams’ head coach is plenty familiar with him. Mikell would be an upgrade over anything we currently have on the roster, so this one seems like a slam dunk. Obviously, money will play into how much interest the team will have, but I have to think that Mikell will be on top of the team’s wish list when they are able to sign players. I like the fit, so let’s hope the organization feels the same way.

    What about Sidney Rice we didnt get a #1 wide reciever yet and CB Nmadi Asomghua. Sorry if spelled his name wrong. I do see this happening too. But they should look at big targets to help out Bradley.

      Rice is definitely going to be a player of interest, but I doubt Asomugha is headed to STL. His price tag will be astronomical, and I just can’t see this team shelling out that kind of money. I’d love it if they did, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.
