Rams to sign former Giants DT Fred Robbins

The Rams added former Giant DT Fred Robbins to their rotation of defensive tackles over the weekend.  Our own Mike predicted the Rams would sign Robbins in his defensive line preview here.

Is Robbins the answer to the Rams issues along the defensive line?  Certainly not.  Is he going to make the Rams wary of drafting a defensive tackle high in the draft?  Probably not.  However, he is going to add to the Rams current defensive tackle rotation of Robbins, Adam Carriker, Clifton Ryan and Darell Scott.  Robbins, 33, will add the much needed veteran presence to the middle of the defensive line that Hollis Thomas could not bring last season.

    Spags & the Rams need more but nice move! Maybe when Plax returns we can try to work on our receiving core since last year was proof in positive that we desperately need an offensive counter punch to relieve the oppositions “D” of their weekly vacation!!!
