    A few we might be interested in.

    3) Robert Quinn, DE, Los Angeles Rams Quinn is only 27 years old, which helps explain why the Rams have been patient in hoping for him to recover the breathtaking form he showed so early in his career. Staying healthy in 2017 was a big step after two seasons plagued by back issues and other injuries, but he wasn’t the snap-to-snap force he was before. It would cost the Rams $12.4 million against the cap in 2018 to see if Quinn can recapture his old magic. With as much cap space as there seems to be around the league, that sounds like a fair price.

    6-7) Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, CBS, New York Giants: There has been a lot of speculation that DRC is on the chopping block, but he was still providing quality snaps as a nickel corner last season when he suited up. It makes a lot more sense for new defensive coordinator James Bettcher to stick with DRC and release Apple. To save cap space, the Giants would have to designate Apple as a post-June 1 cut, but either way, cutting him would be a move made with more than finances in mind.

    8-9) Jared Veldheer and Mike Iupati, OL, Arizona Cardinals: GM Steve Keim can choose to blow up Bruce Arians’ old squad or rebuild in pieces. Veldheer and Iupati are clearly overpriced, costing a combined $19.9 million in cap space, but the team has to be confident it can do better with draft picks and replacement-level talent. Quality offensive linemen so rarely make it to free agency, with both players proving to be an exception when Keim first signed them.

    Situational Pass Rusher – 49ers outside linebacker Elvis Dumervil.

    I’ve read rumors that OLB Clay Matthews may also be a Cap Casualty……

    Thoughts?

    LOL, I’d actually try to re-sign Glennon. I’d trust him much more as a backup than anyone else on this roster and of whom else is available.

    I read the Rams where gonna cut T.Austin if he didn’t take a pay cut. Not that we need a undersized Receiver/RB/KR.

    My Dad’s a Rams fan so I try to follow them when I can. Tavon Austin is an incredibly frustrating player to watch, just seems hesitant on the field and doesn’t maximize his tools. Despite his speed, I’ve never seen him catch a deep ball. Pharoh Cooper does everything Tavon does and he does it better.

    I’d be interested in Quinn for sure though. Rams tried to limit his snaps to keep him healthy this year but he flashed through out the year and finished strong (six sacks after their week 8 bye). I’m hoping they move on in favor of a true 3-4 OLB

    Spence could be part of a trade for Quinn.
