Rams Search for a Backup RB Continues With Interest in Cadillac Williams

The Rams chase to fill out their backfield depth has taken more twists and turns than a John Grisham novel.  Snelling, Brown and now Cadillac Williams.

Per Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:

Another name that has surfaced as a legitimate candidate is Tampa Bay free agent Cadillac Williams.

At this point, it would seem as the Rams are heating up with Cadillac Williams, they are cooling on Ronnie Brown, but that is not quite the case.  Here’s Jim Thomas in his weekly chat with more nuggets:

RamGeek: Jim got any news on ronnie brown?

Jim Thomas: I believe he’s still in the mix. But check out my latest Rams report blog on stltoday.com. … and things seem to be heating up some on Cadillac Williams.

The Rams are still working hard on securing another running back before Thursday’s practice, which is the first one where free agents can practice fully with the team.

Bonus points for anyone who can guess who this is in Jim Thomas’s blind item of the week in his chat:

Jim Thomas: I’ll just put it this way.  The Rams have enough cap space to sign a backup RB _ at the right price. $3.5 million a year _ as one of the Rams’ RB candidates was seeking _ is not the right price.

I’m going to guess Snelling because his market seems to have cooled dramatically and quickly with the Rams and around the league.  Who do you think it is?
