Default Rams release Pace

I'm sure he'll catch on with another team real soon. Which tackle do you think the Rams will draft?

Does he retire or does he try to find another team? There will be takers especially if he is willing to go to RT. He could probably milk another 3 or 4 years of RT play out of his body if he goes to the right situation.

I will be very surprised if anyone brings him in to be their starting LT.

Default Re: Rams release Pace

Well, the Rams NEED an OT so with release of Orlando Pace, all signs suggest OT as the #2 selection. They also signed former Ravens center Brown who can anchor there line which is a good start.

Here are the OTs at a glance...

A.) Jason Smith - My personal favorite (converted TE like Duane Brown). Excellent pass protector but needs to add bulk.

B.) Eugene Monroe - 2nd best option. Good overall OT but tends to take plays off and durability is a concern.

C.) Michael Oher - The best OT in the draft for teams that love to "pound the rock." Humble athlete, considering his childhood, doesn't have any off-the-field issues and well play his heart out.

D.) Andre Smith - IMO, major bust potential but with a ton of upside if coached well. Needs to loose weight and drop down to at least 320 - lbs. Was M.I.A. during the combine because "he was not prepared". Passion for the game a legit concern as I have seen him "go easy" on opponents during plays. Major steal if he can get his act together.

There are more to choose from but not worthy of a #2 selection...


The Rams should go with Jason Smith, IMO. It is for certain OT will be the Rams priority.

If he wishes to play again, I think he'll end up back with the Rams at a bargain price. Dude's had a good career though.

Apparently they intend to move 1st rounder Alex Barron over to LT and move their LG Jacob Bell out to RT.

Quote:
* Alex Barron will be moved from right tackle to left tackle immediately.

* Rams will take a long look at Jacob Bell, last season’s starting left guard, as the right tackle. Such a move would open a starting spot at LG for John Greco.

* Asked if Bell is big enough to play right tackle, Devaney replied: “We hope so.”

* Pace’s release does not mean the team will zero in on an offensive tackle with the No. 2 overall draft pick. “We have a lot of holes and we still have the luxury of being able to pick the highest-rated player at No. 2.”

Exactly.

I hope he's done. Call me rude or angry, I don't care. He used us to leverage the Rams. How do I know that? He never even entertained an offer, never even came to visit us when it was clear that he was planning to visit us--I want to go so far as to say that he was either on the plane, or about to get on the plane to come to Houston, when the Rams ponied up the cash to make him stay a Ram.

Had he been THAT interested in us, he would have said "I'm still going to Houston to see what they have to say." Instead, he skipped a visit to Houston and got his coin from the Rams.

And I'm glad we didn't acquire him. He ended up blowing a knee, IIRC. Can you imagine being saddled with that contract? That was the best deal that never worked out for us.

Alex Barron was horrible at RT, moving him to LT is a concern but maybe the Rams know something I don't?
