Leonard Little is still in limbo as far as playing in 2010 for the Rams or any other team in the NFL. Little has only played for the St. Louis Rams in his 12 years in the NFL. Little was a revelation early in the season in 2009 before he ran out of gas. He almost single-handedly won the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Little was interviewed by the Post-Dispatch.
“Sometimes I feel like I want to come back,” Little said. “Sometimes I feel like I don’t. It’s a hard decision to make when you’re used to playing football. I’ve been playing football since I was 5 years old.
“I love the game. And I do miss it. But my decision is not going to be about football. It’s going to be about other things — things I’d rather not talk about right now.”
It is obvious Leonard is weighing something personal that is not football related. Little can still play in the NFL as a situational pass-rusher. Little is home in the Charlotte, NC working out and potentially sorting out his personal issues. If Little feels ready to play in the NFL in 2010, the Rams will probably be his first call.
Best of luck to Leonard taking care of what he needs to in his personal life and quickly returning to the Rams.
