    Instant Scouting Report: Davin Joseph
    By Tony Softli

    http://www.101sports.com/2014/05/28/instant-scouting-report-davin-joseph/

    The St. Louis Rams have inked two-time Pro Bowl offensive guard Davin Joseph, 30, to a one-year contract.

    A former first-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2006, Joseph spent eight years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The 6-foot-2, 314-pounder earned trips to Hawaii in 2008 and 2011, starting 99 of 100 games played for the franchise.

    After reported failed attempts to trade him, the Bucs cut Joseph in March. He missed the entire 2012 season with a torn patellar tendon in his right knee and had been set to make $6 million in 2014.

    Joseph’s injury history dates back to 2010, too, when a broken foot knocked him out of a 17-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens that November. He subsequently went on injured reserve for the first time in his career.

    Player Analysis:

    A physical player with nasty attitude. A good athlete with size, girth and length. A run blocker with good first-step quickness, explosive snap and collision, and a powerful inline blocker. Physically equipped to play in either man- or zone-blocking schemes. Pass blocker with quick set, strong anchor, feet and balance to slide and remain frontal of defender. Good quickness and football instincts in space to locate, attack defender on the move.

    Now healthy, Joseph may come into training camp and wow the Rams’ brass, competing for a starting job. Worst-case scenario: He helps greatly with the team’s overall depth as a swing guard.

    Contract details as posted on Spotrac:

    1 year only
    Base salary: $1.1M
    Active roster bonus: $300K
    Per game bonus: $21,900
    Maximum contract value if he plays in every game: $1,750,400
    Money guaranteed: $0

    Wow! It's way less than Kenny Britt gets. It's definitely a 'show me' contract. Either Joseph is super-confident that he'll bounce back or other teams were offering little more than minimum wage. It looks like a contract given to someone who's unlikely to make the team.

    Well yeah, as with any other player. Could you imagine if another potential starter on the DL got IRd in training camp?
