    WR Mario Manningham apparently also close to agreement.

    If that's the best the Rams can do, then it's the best they can do.

    I say no. The guy cannot put it together. He didn't do it in NY, and now we're going to have him. I really hope we don't get stuck with a big contract. It feels like Drew Bennett all over again.

    I don't feel like he is the solution to our problems. :(

    Does this.mean no to resigning Lloyd?

    Hopefully it is a reasonable deal.

    Don't worry folks! He is better than anything on our current roster.

    He defiantly WILL NOT be the only new receiver we see on opening day. He can be a solid number #2.

    Plus our WR coach is a stud of a positional coach.

    Anyone forgetting he's been damn consistent since 2008 always overshadowed by Burress, Nicks (drafted as #1),Steve Smith...now Cruz. He hasn't been stellar but hasn't been worthless either and he's only 25...not a burner or tall- 5'11 183 but I dont care this is solid. And we wll just follow up with Blackmon or Floyd. Danny A will most likely be signed and what's the condition on Alexander's overall health status...w/ Salas,Pettis and Kendrick's that's not too shabby. If it happens I'm about it and just have to set aside the "overpaid" deal he may receive..so be it. Rather have Finnegan,J.Jones,Manningham and S.Wells over Nicks,V-Jac,Eric Wright as a combo of additions. Call me Purple Haze.
    That SB sideline was undeniably sick and he'll improve his over route running.

    Not sure. Jim Thomas said he is expected to make a decision over the weekend. I think we sign Langford or Fluellen if we dont get him.

    According to the New York Post, the Rams are currently working out the parameters of a contract for free agent WR Mario Manningham.

    Like I said earlier I would prefer the FA's we snagged so far over some other's teams but that's just me.

    I don't want a huge contract either. But a 25yr old receiver... who can run routes... and with decent stats based on games played and a team with a lot of other options;

    http://www.nfl.com/player/mariomanningham/1030/profile

    Scouts Inc (ESPN) had him rated higher than Meachem, L Robinson, Garcon, and Eddie Royal... so he's no bum.

    He's not a true #1, but we don't have a true #2 either... this team could use a guy like Manningham under the right contract terms... and we STILL need to take another in the first or second round.

    I agree. The thing is, we need an infusion of "other talent" at nearly every position, so it certainly won't hurt to bring a few guys in and see if/how they can contribute. Manningham may not be the sexy acquisition, but 14.5 YPC isn't necessarily a bad thing either. He's still young and could be entering into his prime real soon.

    You know, I wasn't real excited to hear the Rams were looking at Manningham but he just might be the "blue-collar" kind of guy this team needs. Compared to who is left in FA, he is the guy and with Lloyd most likely gone, he is sorely needed. And of course, in my opinion, we need to draft a top tier WR. (Probably one of our first 3 picks)
