Blast from the Past part 2?

As many of you are well aware of, the Rams brought in the extremely grizzled 15 year veteran quarterback Trent Green as a backup to Marc Bulger, only to be cut this offseason to save the team from his ridiculous contract and play (he had a 41.7 QB rating last year).

However, even though Rams Park has been completely reworked with a new coaching and management change, the idea of having a familiar face as a backup QB seems not have left the building. According to Jim Thomas at the St. Louis Post Dispatch, The Rams are considering bringing the one and only Gus Frerotte for a visit next week. While he may not be someone some Rams fans want to think about joining the new Rams (I always remembered that botched handoff a few years ago against Seattle) , He has played in what appears to be a very similar system to new OC Pat Shurmur, which would make him a good backup to have, since Marc Bulger seems unable to stay on his feet after every play (they said that Trent Green knew Al Saunders playbook last year, so I’m taking it with a grain of salt).

-Free Agent Update-

Also according to Jim Thomas, the combined deals of Bartell and Brown count 11.6 million against the cap this year, leaving only 2.853 million dollars left to deal out new contracts, which seems to be the hold up with SS James Butler. That being said, it seems undeniable know that Holt and/or Pace will be gone by the end of the month. According to Jim Thomas himself:

“The lack of cap space also has put a halt to the so-called second phase of free agency at Rams Park. The easiest way for the team to free up cap space would be trading or releasing wide receiver Torry Holt and offensive tackle Orlando Pace.”
