Only free agent WR that interests me now is Joe Horn.

Rams give WR Bennett six-year deal

The St. Louis Rams signed free agent receiver Drew Bennett to a six-year, $30-million contract on Saturday, SI.com has learned, a clear sign that veteran Isaac Bruce is likely in his final season with the team.

Bennett, who spent the previous six seasons with the Tennessee Titans, was one of the top free agents on the market, and the Rams were his first and only visit. He will team with Pro Bowl wideout Torry Holt and Bruce, the franchise's all-time leading receiver, to give St. Louis quarterback Marc Bulger an additional downfield option.

Bennett's deal, according to a source familiar with the terms, includes $10 million in guaranteed money. It will pay him a total of $9.5 million over the first year of the contract.

I wish we'd ball up and sign Stallworth...but I have a feeling the asking price is going to be outrageous. I think Stallworth has superstar potential.

I hope we go after Stallworth, as well.

If we don't, I say we get a WR in the 1st round.

Stallworth would be nice at the right price but I doubt it happens.

I think they draft one early and let him battle Webb, Hannon, and maybe a lower tier FA for the #2 and #3 spots.

using a 1st round pick on a WR is like flipping a coin on whether or not they'll pan out in the NFL

I just remember Bennett burning McCleon on MNF a few seasons ago.

You can say that for every position.....this is why you have to take players above positions if you get what I'm saying.
