but he was not a MLB, we signed a guy who was a good OLBer and he played well enough inside, but would have been better as OLBer in base.

Chavous and Glover were too old, didn't like either one of them.

Randy McMichael average 57 catches with Miami, we get him and he's about 37 catches per 16 game.s

Quintin Mikell another one with little gas left in tank...

These are the sad scenarios that I think of when I reflect on how the Rams approached free agency in the past.

They always seemed to get it wrong, and I think it was because of an institutional inability to evaluate talent: the inability to identify young ascending players and make appropriate monetary offers assuring that they get those players, and overpaying for older players coming off decent seasons while playing for their last big contracts (Jamie Duncan, Jason Sehorn, etc.).

They have just invested in the wrong players (Drew Bennett) unfortunately.
