Rams | Hargrove on the trade block
Sun, 15 Oct 2006 10:08:34 -0700

Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports St. Louis Rams DL Anthony Hargrove is available at the trade deadline.


In the doghouse with the Rams for an unexcused absence a few weeks back (that I don't believe has ever been explained).  But very talented.  Big play potential at a reasonable salary.  Drawback is I believe he will be RFA at the end of the year (former 3rd rounder).

2005 6.5 sacks, sounds like someone to look into.

Too late:

Rams | Acquire draft pick for Hargrove
Mon, 16 Oct 2006 08:59:33 -0700

StLouisRams.com reports the St. Louis Rams have acquired a fifth-round draft choice from the Buffalo Bills in exchange for DE Anthony Hargrove.



Man, a fifth round pick for a proven pass-rush threat.  A steal, IMO.

HARGROVE AWOL

Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch writes in a message board that he monitors on the paper's web site that Rams defensive end Anthony Hargrove was not at practice on Thursday.  "No show at practice . . . no answer on his phones . . . not returning any phone calls . . . not responding to messages left for him," Miklasz writes.

Miklasz adds that Rams coach Scott Linehan has not addressed the situation, but that it's clearly an unexecused absence from practice.

Hargrove, a third-round pick in 2004, is in the final year of his rookie contract.  He'll earn $425,000 in base salary this season.

HOW NOT TO SPEND YOUR CONTRACT YEAR

Rams defensive end Anthony Hargrove is in the final year of his rookie contract.  Typically, such a circumstance prompts a guy to step it up, since the next spring presents an opportunity to get paid.

Sure, Hargrove will still be a restricted free agent come March.  But with the tenders increasing significantly under the new CBA, he'll do much better in 2007 than in 2006 even if the Rams choose to give him the lowest level in order to hold a right to match any offer he receives (and to get a third-round draft pick from his new team if the Rams opt to let him walk).

So disappearing for two days during the last year of said rookie contract isn't the smartest strategy for enhancing Hargrove's 1040 form.

He finally showed up on Friday night at 11:30 p.m. to meet with team officials, after missing two days of practice without an excuse.  Hargrove won't play on Sunday, and he's likely to be fined.

"It's not what you're supposed to do as a teammate and a team player and as a member of this organization," coach Scott Linehan said. "The focus now is on who's going to be helping us on Sunday."

Hargrove's agent, Reggie Blackwell, said that the incident was the result of a Wednesday night conversation between Hargrove and his parents.  "He just didn't handle the communication," Blackwell said. "It kind of overwhelmed him and he shut it down."

The third-year player was a no-show for practice on Thursday, prompting initial concerns for his safety.  He then called the team at 4:00 p.m. to report that he was fine, and he was summoned to meet with Linehan at 6:00 p.m.  Hargrove didn't show.  He likewise didn't show up for practice on Friday.

Hargrove will be replaced on Sunday by Victor Adeyanju.  (Gesundheit.)

Anyone think this effects the chance of the Bills being a possible suitor for a Booger trade?

I'd rather use a 5th on a sackmaster turd like Hargrove than a nonfactor like Jenkins

No the Bills g=just place John McCargo DT, their second round draft choice on the IR recently. They need help along the interior of their line.
