SI’s Ross Tucker wrote a good piece a few weeks back that looked at how familiarity rules free agency, and that’s not always a good thing.
Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo is threatening to be the poster boy of the problem.
St. Louis signed cornerback Kevin Dockery and tight end Darcy Johnson Monday, according to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Both are former Giants that weren’t tendered as restricted free agents. They will join defensive tackle Fred Robbins as ex-Giants to join the team this offseason.
Of the five unrestricted free agents to join the Rams, three are Giants rejects. What are the odds they were truly the three best options?
Last offseason, the first unrestricted free agent Spagnuolo signed was safety James Butler, another former Giant.
Ask any Rams fan how that one worked out.
