You've got it mixed up. IF the Rams sign Pace after March 15 up until July 15, they lose the right to Franchise Tag ANY Player for the length of Pace's contract.
NO, the pressure is not on the Rams. If the Texans really want Pace, they can sign him to an offer sheet. Either the Rams match it, or let him go for the Texan's 2005 and 2006 #1 Picks.
