    Yeah, I thought from the start that there would be a chance that we keep 5 WR, but my thinking was the fact that Cook will play as much WR as TE. I thought that 5 WR and 4 TE (including Cook) could be the way they go, unless a #6 WR was a big special teams guy.

    Re: Cuts have begun

    That someone from camp was me. I was talking to one of the trainers from Lindenwood, who came up to me, and asked specifically about Helmick one of the first days of camp. He made mention to the fact that he "was always "nicked up" and found a way out of practice" (he hinted that he didn't win any popularity contests with his teammates because of it)

    Being the best player on the team, he could get away with not practicing, because he knew he would be playing on Saturday.

    IMO, this had ZERO bearing on his being cut. His hamstring was legitimate, and I doubt seriously if he "faked" anything to get out of training camp.

    Yeah, I was referring to you, but didn't want to single you out in case you wanted to remain anonymous. I appreciate the extra information because I wasn't aware of his work ethic. Did you get any indication that it translated into his time with the Rams? Because I don't remember hearing anything negative about him in that regard.

    Re: Cuts have begun

    I didn't get any indication that it had anything to do with it. I had mentioned it to another poster who I "hang out with" at camp a couple of weeks ago, and he brought it up on the PD forum.

    Honestly, I seriously doubt that it was an issue here, and I will be shocked if he isn't one of the first added to the PS.

    Let me know if I'm missing any!

    I wonder. If we stacked all the O-linemen (horizontally) who started here, but are now out of football or looking for a job, would it reach the moon?

    Some more Rams cuts trickling in: TE Colby Prince, WR Raymond Radway, WR Demetrius Fields.

    No Helmick or Radway.

    Raymond Radway cut. Thought so. My man Veltung is still hanging in there. If we decide to keep six his only remaining competition is Johnson. :bg:

    Nick Johnson might find himself a roster spot. I like Veltung though. Hope we see them alot in the 4th game.

    Me too. There are quite a few roster battles that might be decided in the last game. I'm probably the only guy here looking forward to seeing the game. :lol:

    Albefree feeling like he's on an island

    Not so fast my friend! If the Rams are playing, I'm watching the whole thang!

    And I think Veltung sticks on the roster for the time being unless he gets bumped by a new signee as in a OL or LB.

    Hadn't heard much about Jabara this offseason. Guess this makes sense.

    He couldn't make the practice field, or he may have had a job.

    It was his job to lose. He got hurt the first weekend of training camp, when he was taking ALL his reps with the 2nd unit. Guys like Bates, J. Stewart and yes, the "folk hero" Ray (I refuse to call him Ray Ray) Armstrong all mad Williams expendable.

    I was hoping to see him come back, mainly to see if they would put him back with the 2's, in much the same fashion they put Daniels back there when he was activated.

    Oh well,,,, wish him luck, and time to move on!!!

    Really looking forward to the final preseason game as I will be seeing the final roster spots being sewn up in person.
