Reason #236 Why The Rams Struggled

From Jim Thomas’s article today:

At the end of the draft, the competition for rookie free agents can be fierce. Sometimes a signing bonus of just a few thousand dollars can clinch the deal. In recent years, the Rams have not spent much signing bonus money on rookie free agents. Last year, in fact, the Rams were the only team in the league that didn’t spend a cent in signing bonus money on undrafted rookies. This year, however, the team spent about $50,000 in signing bonus money, which may have helped them get better prospects.

50,000 dollars.  That is nothing in the grand scheme of things in the NFL.   Thank you to the new regime for instituting common sense back into the Rams Park.

Thomas also says that guards Roger Allen, Ray Feinga and defensive end Ian Campbell were invited to the combine.  Which means that they are a little more than your average undrafted free agent.  And it only took $50,000 to get them.
