Latest St. Louis Rams News
Patriots claim RB Gaffney off waivers (The SportsXchange) ( today ) Courtesy of
The New England Patriots claimed rookie running back Tyler Gaffney off waivers from Carolina on Monday. Gaffney, 23, was originally drafted by the Panthers in the sixth round of the 2014 draft out of Stanford. He was injured in training camp and was released by the Panthers on July 27. The 6-foot, 220-pound Gaffney started all 14 games for Stanford during his senior season, finishing with 330 rushing attempts for 1,709 yards and 21 rushing touchdowns. Yahoo! Mon, Jul 28
 
Bradford: Yet another make or break season (The Associated Press) ( today ) Courtesy of
It's become a rite of training camp for Sam Bradford. The St. Louis Rams quarterback is not surprised that once again, he's supposedly at a career crossroads. Bradford can't remember when that wasn't perceived to be the case, and he tries to ignore low outside expectations that include a fantasy rating in the bottom half of NFL quarterbacks and other assorted doubts.

Calvin Pace latest Jet to puff out his chest: 'We’re the best' defense in NFL (Shutdown Corner) ( today ) Courtesy of
If the New York Jets are going to go down, there are going with their egos riding high. Shortly after Dee Milliner, who was roundly tested by opposing quarterbacks as a rookie, proclaimed himself the best cornerback in the NFL , his defensive teammate had some more boastful things to say. [ Smack talk season is back at Yahoo Sports: Sign up and play free Fantasy Football! ] Calvin Pace was less about self and more about team, but equally as bold, when he told the New York Daily News that the Jets are owners of the best defense in the NFL. “(Compared to) the rest of the defenses in the NFL? S---, man, we’re the best," Pace said. “You ask anybody around the league, we’re not the team you want to see coming in, even in a down year." Pace might have been on vacation out of the country when the Seattle Seahawks made a mockery of the 606-point Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, one that we might add was played on Pace's home field at MetLife Stadium this past February. But for a moment, let's give Pace the benefit of the doubt ... Even with statistics only telling part of the story, it is a fact that the Jets ranked 11th in yards allowed a season ago, which would be solid enough to suggest that — with improvement — the Jets could find themselves far closer to the top five this season. If Milliner and Calvin Pryor upgrade the secondary, and Pace and a capable group of linebackers play well, the Jets own a defensive line as talented as any in the NFL, even rivaling the St. Louis Rams' devastating front. Head coach and defensive savant Rex Ryan can work with this unit and do some very respectable things. Frankly, we can't wait to see what Year 2 of the Muhammad Wilkerson-Sheldon Richardson duo up front, with scheme wrecker Damon Harrison — a starting-grade talent — coming off the bench. When you have those forces up front, it takes major pressure off the guys behind them and allows for some really creative pressure and coverage packages. “There’s a certain type of aggression when we come ... you know we’re going to come with a lot of stuff and teams don’t want to see that,” Pace said. “They want to see a vanilla defense, that just lines up and you know where they’re going to be.” But now let's return from dreamland ... Pace is wrong. Hey, if you're of the mindset that players should be confident and believe they're the best, I can get behind that. The Jets were always at their best under Ryan when they were boastful (when it didn't ring hollow, or as being insecure) and carrying that bravado out on the field.  But there's just no realistic way to argue that the Jets, as thin as they are at a few locations and with a few passable starters on defense, can be the best unit in the league. They might have been 11th in yards allowed, but they were 19th in points against. Go ahead, Calvin — say what you want, but no statistic or unexpected slew of injuries to the Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers, Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs or whomever else will convince me otherwise. Heck, you could make the argument that the Jets aren't even guaranteed to have the best defense in their division. The New England Patriots have loaded up with (ouch, former Jets) corner Darrelle Revis, and the Buffalo Bills, even with Kiko Alonso's injury and Marcell Dareus' limbo status, sat higher in the defensive rankings a year ago. Still, Pace remains undaunted and seems to have a sharper recall of 2009 or 2010 than he does of last season. “We’re the benchmark when we’re doing well,” Pace said. “I’ll take these guys and Rex and this system any day.” I won't. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Rams rebuilding job leans heavily on kids (The Associated Press) ( yesterday ) Courtesy of
St. Louis Rams players are assigned parking spots outside the training facility based on seniority, and the roster is so heavy on youth, quarterback Sam Bradford is close to the front of the line. ''Despite the age on paper, the team doesn't act that way,'' coach Jeff Fisher said. ''The team acts much more mature, and will be much more prepared.'' Last season the Rams had the NFL's youngest team and reached seven wins for the second straight season while accepting mistakes general manager Les Snead calls ''spilled milk.'' They might be the youngest team again, but with enough experience to withstand the growing pains. Snead refers to front-liners who left college early, some of them in their second or third year in the lineup, as ''redshirt sophomores and juniors.'' Middle linebacker James Laurinaitis emphasizes to younger teammates that every snap counts, even in practice. Yahoo! Sun, Jul 27
