It’s well known that the Rams still have some holes on this current roster, and the biggest is undoubtedly at outside linebacker. In a move to possibly add depth to the position, the team brought former Washington Redskin Rocky McIntosh for a workout on Wednesday. No deal has been signed, but Rams coach Jeff Fisher reportedly liked what he saw and would like to get something done.
McIntosh was a nice player in Washington before losing his starting spot last season. He had 110 tackles in 2010, but that number dropped to 65 last season. He’s a veteran who has played outside in a 4-3 defense in the past, and he has a track record.
We are short in depth at the position, so McIntosh is an interesting option. It’s certainly concerning that he lost his starting spot last year, but if he did impress in his workout then I think he’s worth a look. I’m not saying he’s the answer, but he knows how to play the position and he can help on special teams as well.
