Rams have not hinted at all that they would spend as much as $16 mil for one season of Watkins. Not saying it's impossible....but it is unlikely considering the rather broad array of FAs they need to resign.

What info is he going on? What smoke signal that only he knows about has been sent up? No mention of any source. He's supposed to be a paid sports journalist.....not a chat board poster like us who have license to speculate and opine and...yes....Imagine...... because that's what these boards are for.

and agreement not to give the source. That happens. It happens for Pro Bowls and alternates for sure.

However, your speculation is that Rams have not hinted (how would we know?) they would spend $16 mil.

And how do we know it's "unlikely"?

It may be very likely. And Alden is in a better position to know than you or me.

  Sammy Watkins is not the same player he was his first 2 years

Rams_81156January 12, 2018 03:12PM

  He's better

Blue and Gold165January 12, 2018 04:26PM

  Lots of good points here

  If Reynolds turns out to be good, then there is no need for
