There has been some concern within Rams Nation about the delay in the signing of this year’s crop of rookies. Never fear, however, because that issue will soon be taken care of. According to GM Les Snead, the Rams will start negotiations this week after the holiday has passed, and Snead also said that the entire group will be signed by the end of the minicamp that runs from June 12-14.
Apparently, the decision to delay contract negotiations is to allow the players to better acclimate themselves to the NFL so the transition from college is seamless. I don’t know if that’s going to make a big difference in the transition, but it doesn’t really matter. The guys aren’t going to miss any time, and negotiations should be short and easy thanks to the rookie wage scale.
All of you out there who have been voicing concern on this issue can rest easy. These guys are all going to be members of this team soon, and everything is all good.
