Time to get those NFL salivary glands working…
A couple of great kick start quotes from ESPN’s Nick Wagoner:
@nwagoner: One of the most obvious things during organized team activities (OTAs) was how much further along the Rams were defensively than they were a year ago. It’s imperative for them to get off to a fast start and be more consistent but it doesn’t seem like there’s going to be as many growing pains this time out. In fact, Williams made it a point to say near the end of OTAs that he’s been able to both weed out things he doesn’t feel work and add things he think will work. Big things are expected of this defense this year and with good reason. But once again, it’s their job to finally deliver on a consistent basis.
@nwagoner: Nothing is set in stone right now, especially at center but the Rams seem to like the idea of something like this (from left to right): Greg Robinson, Rodger Saffold, Barrett Jones, Jamon Brown and Rob Havenstein. Jones still has a lot of learning to do; Tim Barnes could get the nod because of experience and it’d be unwise to rule out Demetrius Rhaney. That competition will play out through training camp and the preseason. At right guard, don’t be surprised if Garrett Reynolds gets a chance should Brown have any miscues. Reynolds worked at left guard with Saffold sitting out team portions of OTAs and offers a veteran solution if Brown takes a little while to develop.
