The recent back surgery to Steven Jackson highlighted the lack of depth in the Rams backfield.
It has some asking why the Rams didn’t draft a running back, because Kenneth Darby and Chris Ogbonnaya are an uninspiring pair of backups.
The Rams may still bring in a player with just a tad more career production — Brian Westbrook.
“We’re still talking to him,” Rams G.M. Billy Devaney told Howard Balzer of the St. Louis Globe-Dispatch. “There’s still a chance we
can work something out, but there’s no great rush there.”
There are indications the Rams are willing to offer him a contract. Perhaps Westbrook is holding out in hopes of a better offer or a team that has a legitimate chance to win a title.
