  1. I have a feeling they view him as a good option out of the backfield in passing situations. He is a good receiver, and can run the ball too. My guess is the rumors regarding Dalvin Cook have substance, and he may very well be dealt after June 1st.

  2. As a longtime fantasy football player who plays in several deep leagues that require pretty much anyone with a pulse to be on somebody’s roster, I can honestly say I never heard of this guy.

  3. Dumped by Lions, now the #2 for the Viklings. Sad reality when you have to put all that cap space towards JJ, the magician, known for his disappearing act.

  4. Another dumb off-season move getting a player we definitely don’t need. Nice going Quasi Moto!

  5. Never heard of this guy before and never heard of the WR they released yesterday. Perhaps ignorance is bliss. It must be for ohokgotit above who apparently hasn’t heard of KJ Osborne, Jalen Nailor, Jalen Reagor or TJ Hockenson.

  6. He was a good special teamer for the Rams in returning punts and kick offs and got some opportunity in fly sweeps and screen passes because of injury to starters. Not an every down player but he has nice hands and the guy has some juice if used correctly as a role player. Rams will have a lot of holes to fill with young players. I’m sure Snead is just pacing himself.
