NFL Free Agency Rumors: Rams Tracking Jason Snelling, Brian Finneran

Via The Falcoholic comes a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch by Jim Thomas about the St. Louis Rams looking into Jason Snelling as a potential backup for Steven Jackson. An outrage, sirs.

Ordinarily, seeing running backs sail from team to team for big money is pretty mystifying. All they do is get hurt like two days later. But Snelling has value far beyond his considerable rock-toting talent. He's a great blocker, a very good pass-catcher and a solid teammate. A really nice guy, too.

There's been talk of him playing fullback if Ovie Mughelli were no longer around, as he did last year at one point. He even played Wildcat point man, but the less said about that the better.

There are very, very few running backs in Falcons history I would've been disappointed to see the team lose. Snelling is one. 

Speaking of good guys, the Rams are also interested in Brian Finneran, who the Falcons have encouraged to seek employment throughout the NFL. Good for him if he's able to find a spot.
