    The Rams have the NFL's third-youngest roster after signing Jo-Lonn Dunbar and re-signing Tom Brandstater. Both are relatively young at age 27, but they actually made the revamped Rams slightly older on average. Tampa Bay and Seattle are tied for the youngest roster on average, with the Rams right behind. The 49ers (24th youngest) and Cardinals (25th) are older. Filtering out specialists produces slightly different rankings: Seattle second-youngest, St. Louis third, San Francisco tied for 11th and Arizona 21st.

    Not too schocking. We all knew the old guys last year were a bit washed up.

    We dumped them and their sallaries and now we are down to our young core players. Now we just need to hit on some players in the draft.

    It's nice to be young. Glad to see Rams have a 3rd string QB on board but what's the deal with Clemons? Surely, they would like to have him back? He seems perfect for the role of backup doesn't he? I'd think they would like to ink him before the draft gets too closer or are they thinking of drafting a QB in the later rounds? I saw one mock with the Rams picking Weeden in the 4th. I hope that doesn't happen. Too many other holes to fill.

    I'd like us to bring in competition nor Brandstarter. QBs are in their prime at 27...he has probably just about peaked out.

    I'd say take a Guy in the 6th or 7th round sign that Clemons fellow and call it a day.
