According to Don Banks of SI.com, if the St. Louis Rams won’t be going after Greg Jennings and Dwayne Bowe in free agency, even if they aren’t able to re-sign wide receiver Danny Amendola. There’s too much concern over Jennings’ injuries over the past two seasons and a lot of people around the league are worried Bowe will stop playing once he gets paid.
If St. Louis does lose Amendola, it doesn’t mean they’re going to be in the chase for a big-name, big-money free agent receiver like Greg Jennings or Dwayne Bowe. That’s not in the plan for the Rams, who consider Jennings an injury risk himself after his 2012 season, and like many teams are wary of Bowe’s decreased effort level after he earns a big payday. Receiver should get some attention in the draft, but the Rams are high on Quick and Givens, and won’t reach for the sake of need. St. Louis added ex-Lions malcontent receiver Titus Young after claiming him off waivers earlier this month, but released him last week in a move that shows they’re willing to admit mistakes and keep searching for upgrades.
With the salary cap being flat for the next few years, I can’t blame the Rams for being cautious with how they’re going to spend their money.
