    You know anything about Wayne Hunter Dr?

    All I know is what I have heard on ESPN. Basically that he has been brutal this preseason and played poorly last year.

    if it's a straight swap the rams received less than nothing for smith.

    i'm starting to get worried now.

    Maybe they can put him and Richardson together every snap, and we might have something.

    Yeah, I just watched him play. He plays like Jason Smith, but this will be a fresh start for him too. Maybe he makes the roster maybe he doesn't, but we have to try something. It may not be the only move in that regard.

    I certainly hope there's more to it than just a straight up swap.
    It did say *part of the deal* though, so I hope there's at least a draft pick involved.

    Like moving Dahl outside and promoting Turner to guard? This is not the answer. At all. I guess I kinda agree though. They're at least doing something. I guess?

    I guarantee there's going to be a freak load of penalties coming from the right side to this year too. :nono:

    it's not his fault he was picked at #2. no wonder devaney is out of a job and can't get another one. picking a project at #2 with the amount of money you had to pay for it back then does that to you.

    disclaimer - i know there are no sure things in a draft but everyone knew smith was a project during the draft process. #2 is not the place for a project player.

    Well, I've been an advocate of that move from the get go. Smith couldn't beat out Richardson. I don't expect a draft pick, what value is there for Smith?

    That's interesting. I guess that Richardson is going to start on the right side then? Unless we move Dahl over? Either way we have to address OT either in the draft or FA next year. I'm not sure who will be coming out (or how good they are) or who will be hitting the open market.

    Well you need to be the offensive line coach gawd dammit! :cheese: I like that we save the extra 1+ million. No value, but getting a 6 rounder might've been a better deal than this guy. I'm not sold that Smith is any worse than him or Richardson for that matter. Guess we'll see.

    There is a tweet out there from the famous Rams blog Turfshowtimes that is really annoying.

    "Turfshowtimes really have to wonder about Bradford's future in St. Louis now. Could the new admin have been thinking about a new QB all along?"

    So this trade suggests that Rams have given up on Sam Bradford? Idiocy at it's finest.

    Like everything else, I'm not rushing to judgment. Wayne Hunter is a cheaper Jason Smith from what I'm reading. By the way, Hunter knows the system. Smith didn't.

    I was in a huge discussion at the PD, a couple of weeks ago, and my argument was that there is no way that the Rams will keep 2 RT only players. People thought I was crazy. The majority also thought that J. Smith should be the starter. Richardson, as bad as he is, has outplayed him. Hunter may not be playing well, but at least he's a swing tackle. I think the Rams plan was for Moose to be that guy, but Moose hasn't played well at tackle when he goes in there.
