NFL Total Access discussed this for a couple of minutes tonight...Adam Schefter seemed to be on the same page as the other media sources saying it's just up to compensation to the Rams now.

Wow. Didn't see this coming, but I like the move--in theory. By the way, NO player in the NFL is worth losing two #1 picks over. Ask Nick Saban how he's feeling about trying to rebuild the Dolphins after Ricky Williams made that whole deal blow up. Even WITH Ricky that team's suffered from bad draft moves and a fairly frequent lack of ANY first round pick. That sort of stance is nothing but posturing.

This is potentially soooo much better than some of the other moves this offseason. Very nice to see Houston in a "smart" context in the FA game, rather than just continuing a new annual tradition of overpaying another Dolphin in free agency.

(Easy now, just kidding...I actually liked the Wade pickup.)

So much for the Texans not making much of a splash this year in FA. If Orlando Pace isn't a big sign I don't know what is. Not that I'm complaining, I didn't really like any of our options at #13. Also, the chances of DJ falling that far are slim to nill.


Assuming we actually get Pace I hope we focus on the D-line in the draft. I know we resigned a lot of our line already, but most of those guys seem to spend more then half the season on IR.

orlando pace is 29 years old...he's one of the top 3 tackles in the game today depending on where you see him against walter jones, and ogden...carr has been stumped by not having a LT blocking for him since he came to us...if we were able to bring in Pace he would be the only person i see worth the two 1st rounders because this guy isn't making yards he's helping insure that the three main guys who do are safe...giving carr more time to make the right throw so that johnson is lead perfectly and DD has the running room needed to gain over 1200 yds every season...i would like this trade...yeah it makes the draft less interesting for us but...it makes the season that much more fun to watch

Remember, offense scores points but defense gets you to the bowl.
Really, 1999, SB34 ring a bell.

The RAMS were ALL offense, the D just had to show up.

This deal will cost you a lot more than Sharper (who the RAMS don't really need) and your #1 this year.

It will take your #1 and multiple other picks and or players.

There are ZERO LT's available either in FA or the draft that are pro bowl players.

i dont think we will end up giving the Rams 2 first rounders, because they have til just wednesday to sign him to a long term deal, time is going to press them into taking less.

Can they really get 2 first rounders for him? TO and Corey Dillon were traded for 2nd rounders, I can't see Pace being worth that much more. I'd definantly give up a 1st and 3rd though since a player drafted at 13 probably has a 5% chance of being as good as Pace is.

I wouldn't mind offering two #1's for Pace, but in 06 & 08. hopefully by then the Texans will be contenders (with both Pace & this years #1 from the 13th pick).

I may have misheard, but on Fox SouthWest Sports Report, they said our offer was our first and both thirds...

They said we have a 1st round and 2 3rd round picks to work with, not that it was our offer.

just wondering, would the deal be a definite first rounder this year or could it be for future considerations? I think we kinda need another first rounder even if we get orlando. A pass rushing d-lineman would do us good and any future first round picks hopefully and probobly would not be as high as a first round pick as high as 13.

i think the Rams are smart enough to know a first rounder next year from us will be alot lower. They want the 13 pick in this draft.

Houston makes an offer to Pace
By Jim Thomas
Of the Post-Dispatch
03/14/2005

Not all the "i's" are dotted, or "t's" crossed. But offensive tackle Orlando Pace has a contract offer from the Houston Texans, and according to sources familiar with the negotiations, it's one that is preferable to the current contract on the table from the Rams.

So what happens next?

"The ball is really in St. Louis' court as far as what they want to do, and the decision they want to make," Pace told the Houston Chronicle on Monday during his visit with Texans officials. "We'll see here in the next 24 hours or so."

The Rams have until 3 p.m. Wednesday to sign Pace to a multi-year contract offer. At that point, a four-month negotiating blackout begins for the Rams and Pace. And that would mean another spring without Pace attending the team's offseason conditioning program - which starts March 21 - no minicamps and no training camp for the third consecutive year.

Pace characterized negotiations with the Rams as being "at a standstill."

I dont know if I heard this wrong or what, but I just heard on Fox Sports that Pace and the Texans have already agreed in principle and their just trying to figure out what exactly their gonna give for him.
