After the initial 72 hours of free agency, the NFL has been relatively quiet, as teams close the door on veteran players and shift their attention towards the upcoming rookie class. For the St. Louis Rams, not much has changed, as Les Snead and Jeff Fisher continue to handle the 2014 offseason without making much of a “splash.” However, that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been some rumors surrounding some “lesser name” players.
If those players left on the market, the most intriguing prospect might be former Tennessee Titans’ wide out, Kenny Britt. The one-time Jeff Fisher draftee has been on tour over the last couple of week, visiting with the St. Louis Rams, New England Patriots, and Washington Redskins. However, in all three cases, Britt has left without signing a contract, leaving the door open for a potential move to St. Louis.

On a less exciting front, the St. Louis Rams have also been connected to Shaun Hill, a journeyman quarterback that could fill the veteran void behind starter Sam Bradford. With Kellen Clemens on his way to San Diego and the NFL Draft still months away, the Rams will undoubtedly attempt to insert some veteran onto the depth chart. It appears as though this rumor is “close” to becoming a reality.

Outside of those two players, the free agent tracker has been pretty bare for the St. Louis Rams. Potential guards signees Daryn Colledge and Davin Joseph have both made their visits to Rams Park, but have yet to ink an contract. Ex-Bears interior defensive lineman, Henry Melton, was briefly linked with the Rams over the last couple of days, but recently signed with the Dallas Cowboys.
At this point, the St. Louis Rams have yet to sign an “outside” free agent to the roster. However, looking at the depth chart and the Rams place in the 2014 NFL Draft pecking order, maybe that isn’t such a bad thing!
