I want Barwin. I've made no bones about that even when it was just rumored that the Eagles might make him a cap casualty.

With all the cash Ted has on hand, I can't understand why this hasn't happened already??.........Unless there's something else in the wind, and Ted is keeping it hidden behind closed doors.

Dare I say.............................Dont'a Hightower??

Ah the tricks people play in their minds the same time every year.  I think he's close to signing Hightower and trading with the Broncos for Chris Harris and I will be shocked and bitterly disappointed should neither occur

Rotoworld:
Free agent OLB Connor Barwin is visiting the Rams on Wednesday.
This makes too much sense not to happen. Barwin turns 31 this year, but the Rams are transitioning to a 3-4 defense under new DC Wade Phillips and have zero edge rushers behind Robert Quinn. Barwin played for Phillips in Houston earlier in his career. He's appeared in all 16 games each of the past six seasons and remains a reliable edge-setter with 46 sacks the past six years.

And TT is sitting with $10M+ more available cap space than the Rams.

It does make sense for the Rams, but if Ted wants him more, he can get him.

I won't be surprised if he signs with LAR, but the overweight person hasn't sung yet

Agree entirely. TT's gotta be planning on spending that cash on somebody.

Gosh I hope so. Its been an uncharacteristic off season. We've retained far fewer than normal and so far signed more than normal.

On Barwin. The Rams do make sense from a familiarity standpoint. But....I'm hoping that a cat like Barwin put more of a premium on winning and wants to make a run. The Rams are probably still a couple of years away and thats if everything goes right.

I'm retired so I'm out! Me thinks we get one in round 1 of the draft. Me also thinks TT is actually going to go to Madison to get that hypothetical EDGE rusher.

I don't there were a lot of teams really that interested in Barwin...including the Packers.

Maybe not at $6.5M, but if his number had been around $5M I think that would be a different opinion.

I agree with golf right now (even though my last mock didn't have an edge guy in Rnd 1).

I think that the strategy changes now and either edge rusher or CB are the two target options.

I read today that Dallas has lost 4 of it's secondary to free agency, so even though the rumor mill was speculating that TJ Watt was the Pokes 1st round target, I have to think their priorities have changed, and IF Watt is still on the board at #29 then Ted will not hesitate.
