Here's the link to the radio sation that did the interview, they will replay it at 5pm central time.

I guess a trade could still be in the works, but I doubt.

They will replay the interview at the 5:00 hour.

Here's some more info form the RAMS site:

Mike Claiborne (KFNS) had a lengthy discussion with Orlando Pace -- last night and then again today.

Claiborne believes the Rams and Pace are very close to reaching a deal.

That was the indication he got from Orlando.

And Pace confirmed on KFNS just now, saying, "we're very close."

The Rams sweetened their offer today (Tuesday)

Pace just finished up an interview on KFNS.

Pace just said "we're close. I'm about to get on a plane right now (to Orlando) and hopefully by the time I land, we'll have a deal."

He said turning point was the Houston trip...it brought about a new offer from the Rams...structure of the deal (apparently) was tweaked by the Rams...Pace said that means more to him then the end number in the contract -- which I take to mean that the Rams moved more of the money to the front part of the deal.

"It was important to me to get money up front," Pace told KFNS. "The way the deal was structured was important to me." Pace joked that he's lost his way to Macomb...said it's important for him to be in camp, "get back on track, and do the things I do well...I miss the camp to some extent, just being around the fellows."

As for criticism he's received in STL, Pace said, "It was tough, but as far as the fans go, they want a winner. I can understand that, but a lot of people don't understand the business part. You have to take care of the business befdore you get on the field."

Great job by Claibs.

RM34 - Now that this is done I probably won't be posting here for obvious reasons. Let me say this: You guys are very knowledgable and passionate fans. This board does not seem to have the problem we have on our board, darn near every thread turns into a Warner debate, it's pathetic. There are so many "trolls" on our board it can be difficult to actually talk football. Appreciate what you have here and I hope you never get infected by know-nothing trolls.

Coach LAG - Go long, and we'll fake it to you.

hey the good news is that we are serious about making improvements, and we jacked the price up on the Rams so they have less money.

Atleast it didn't drag on. It's a bummer that we couldn't land OP, but we still have a good up and coming team. And don't we play the Rams this year? If so, we'll just beat them to get our revenge!!!

This is disappointing. But I hope the Texans don't match that offer. It would kill our cap and we would have to just cut him when it's time to resign Carr.

On a side note: Anyone who thinks the Rams want Sharper is delirious. They just signed Coakley and Claiborne and are in love with Robert Thomas (who is only 24 and been starting for the past 2 seasons). So please...no more Pace for Sharper + 1st round pick talk.

Barron is the type of OT I'd want.

True, I dont know why anyone would put Sharper in the picture for Pace. Their already talking about possibly bringing Pisa back to the LB spot, but are probably gonna stick him at SS like they planned. I guess it depends how good Coakley and Claiborne prove in training camp, if they prove good Pisa will stay at SS. I don't see where Jamie would fit in this picture any where, as like you said, Ram's love their boy Robert Thomas. Just a sign of fans who like to throw out things they don't know what their talking about.

The talk of Sharper involvement has slowed but I wanted to put a stop to it before it resurfaced and I'd have to read it and shake my head again. Cool response though, I did not know Pisa had a chance to move into the front 7.

it cracks me up how people say that pace is at the end of his career just because he has or is about to turn 30. this was a calculated move where you were getting a proven commodity.

i least we weren't beltran-ed this time.

I saw it on kffl.com. Martz was talking about possibly putting him back, but he said they'll figure it out during training camp, and that he likes him at SS cause he feels he'd be a bigger playmaker.

Sounds like atleast we have some resolution after 400 posts! Time to move on and get back into draft mode.

Maybe sign some more DL depth, then think WR, OL, DL, CB in the draft.
