The Rams have plenty of cap room.  But they don’t have any looming free agents on whom they intend to devote a large chunk of it in 2012.

G.M. Les Snead told PFT Live that the Rams definitely won’t be using the franchise tag.

That means receiver Brandon Lloyd will hit the open market, unless the two sides work out a deal between now and March 13.

Other free agents include running backs Cadillac Williams and Jerious Norwood, guard Jacob Bell, and quarterbacks A.J. Feeley and Kellen Clemens.
