Highly doubt they simply let AD walk....

Yeah doubtful he would just walk but in a way that's semantics....dz is just saying this Rams front office has tended not to come through on top contracts so far. They let Jenkins walk because they lowballed him, he took another offer (the difference was 25% more). and they only had one tag which they used on Tru. But if they don't sign AD and try to tag him, he can simply stay out and demand a trade. People had a hard time coming up with examples of top players who demanded to be traded who DIDN'T get traded. It's hard for teams to get nothing for a guy while he sits out. Especially since in the Rams case, if they tag him, he still counts against the cap even if he doesn't take the money.


....

That's a bit of a mislead....the Rams simply chose Tru over Jenks that offseason....they knew they couldn't compete in the open market for Jenkins and keep Tru at the same time.

Tru was coming off the better year that offseason, so I can see why they did.

No, that's not the case. The word immediately after they let JJ walk and tagged Tru was that they tagged Tru b/c they thought he would be the easiest to sign.

Meanwhile, JJ only signed for $12.5M. Prior to that, they had made a low ball offer of $9M which Jenkins said he found insulting. I agreed with him b/c amateur fans on this board knew that he would cost significantly more than that.

As it turns out, he signed for a very reasonable amount. They could have competed with $12.5M especially given that they paid Tru $30M over two years.

Tru had just had a good season and maybe that was a factor but I didn't see any reports after the fact indicating that's why they went the direction they did. The reports I read all suggested that it was about who was signable - i.e. it was over money.

And Fisher wanted Jenkins and made it known he was unhappy when they didn't sign him.
