Have you ever hit that point where you are just too tired to sleep, so you drink a hot tea or coffee to try to reset the sleep cycle thing, and as you await the drowsies to hit, stumble onto something that flashes interest and intrigue? Well, that happens to me sometimes. This is my story, and that is why I am writing another article at midnight when I probably should have been asleep hours ago.

I read the commentary about Wayne Gallman II, a player originally drafted by the New York Giants and signed after four seasons by the San Francisco 49ers earlier this year to a one-year deal.

So now that we’ve got some promising reasons to investigate further, what say we explore the potential of Gallman and determine whether he may be a fit for the LA Rams roster?
