NFL Free Agency Rumors: Rams Want Every RB, Not Just Jason Snelling

Jason Snelling might be my third-favorite player on the Atlanta Falcons roster behind Roddy White and Brent Grimes. So it's with tentative relief that I share this: the St. Louis Rams are reportedly courting every running back in the league, or at least Ronnie Brown and Joseph Addai.

What's that have to do with anything? The Rams are the only team that's reportedly shown interest in taking Snelling away from Atlanta. Since they've also swiped Harvey Dahl, we may be looking at a pipeline similar to the Braves-Royals connection. Get your own players, Missouri.

Snelling is just one of three free agents the Falcons have left to re-sign, and the other two -- Grimes and Justin Blalock -- are almost surely going to be brought back. His broad skill set is hard to replicate, and I don't know if there are any backs on the roster that the team would trust just yet as an every-down player.
