    Mike Pouncey taking a physical with us today, would love him on a short term, play your way to a better contract type deal if he passes which I highly doubt, rumours his hips are fucked, but a 60% Pouncy is better than a 200% Pulley

    Is Collins a long term solution? I didnt watch the games _that_ closely, but the ones I did watch, he seemed to be very up and down. Like he'd get 80 yards in 4 plays and then crumbs for the next 6 quarters.

    hard to say, Forsett had a similar kind of season and then the next year he couldn't find holes in a colander, it's always tricky with those guys that come out of nowhere

    Might be more in the Ryan Grant physical failure story...

    http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22845408/wr-ryan-grant-sign-indianapolis-colts

    Is Pouncey that good a signing @Welshy? Great player, don’t get me wrong... but is interior line really that big a need for LAC? Given you’ll face a better edge rusher than inside rush in the division, would have thought it Could be better spent in an area of need.

    He’s a great player tho.

    Yes mate, Pulley was the worst ranked starting center last year, Pouncey between Lamp and Feeney 2 young studs if exactly what we needed, we conceded the least amount of sacks in the league last year, its our inside run game which needs work and solidifying which Pouncey will bring, decent contract as well $10 over 2 years for a player of his caliber is good

    Frees us up in the draft now to hopefully get James if we trade up or take one of the middle linebackers, would alos take Vea, not sure on Payne as yet

    Fair enough - like you said, LAC let in the least sacks/game, so I'd have thought your current line was more then good enough. I saw $15m over 2 years? Which is probably about fair... its certainly not a steal when you look at other centre contracts around the league but its not overs either.

    Win/Win honestly.

    Rams needed a deep threat - im not sold on Tavon Austin. They got one of the best.
    Patriots traded pick #32 to get him + a 4th and got pick #23 + a 4th back to give him up... so they effectively rented him for a year and moved up 9 spots for the privilege.

    Rams look very good at the moment. They are the only top contender from last season who actually look substantially better on paper. Every other team is going backwards or treading water in comparison.

    yeah i agree, if forced to pick, i would give the pats a slight edge but it seems like a reasonable trade that works for both sides
