Rams to Start Talking to CB Bartell About Staying

Today’s St.Louis Post-Dispatch says that the Rams are going to get back to work as they will talk to CB Ron Bartell about sticking around with a new deal. Here is the story from today’s paper:

Negotiations are about to hit high gear with the Rams and cornerback Ron Bartell, who is scheduled for free agency Feb. 27. Demoff recently spoke to Bartell’s agent, in part reassuring him that re-signing Bartell remains a Rams priority. Demoff and the agent, Jeffrey Griffin, are expected to meet at the combine. Bartell is coming off a career year in which he led the team in pass breakups (20), the most for a Rams player since 2004.

According to film review by STATS LLC, Bartell finished the 2008 season with the best opponent’s passer rating in the NFC West among division cornerbacks. The quarterback passer rating when Bartell was targeted last season was 60.2. The second-best total among NFC West cornerbacks was logged by San Francisco’s Walt Harris (79.8), according to STATS LLC.
