    The Rams have been quoted as saying they are no longer interested in retaining Marshall Faulk who wants to come back and play this year,The Rams are expected to release him or in a trade since he is still under contract if he decides to rejoin the league.

    I don't blame them,They have an all pro in Steven Jackson and can pay less for a backup RB than having a $$$ guy like Marshall sitting most of the time.

    I don't think Marshall is good enough at his age to be a starting RB anymore and would make a superb backup or a guy to share duties in the running game...Imagine Marshall Faulk and Lawrence Maroney in the same backfield...That would be great!

    Although I don't like Marshall and he don't really like us,Money talks and if we go after him if he is released I think he would like us rather quickly nd we would be unstoppable in rushing yardage as a whole.

    Imagine the headlines 'We are Faulked Again' or 'One Faulk is never enough' (referring to Kevin of course as the other Faulk)

    What do you think?,Should we go after him or stay away?

    Don't know what he has left. He spent all last year on the sideline and he has a nice gig on the NFL network.
    I think he should just walk away and retire.

    I have no idea how realistic our chances are of getting him, or how much money he would demand, but I'm all for this if it's feasible.

    Faulk is still bitter about SB XXXVI. He'll want more than what he's worth and he's really not a smashmouth runner like Dillon.

    Faulk would be some of Maroney and some of Faulk but no Dillon. Nothing new added. Plus, he hasn't been healthy much since SB36. I'd pass, don't even think aboud it.

    Why would it be great?

    Money talks? Why would you think the Pats would offer him enough money to convince him to come here? This make no sense at all.

    If he got signed to a vet min then fine if he makes it through camp.

    Why would it be great? Because you have a future HOFer and and young promising runner combo..That would not be good to you?

    No NE probably won't offer much money,They rarily do,but its a possibility like any player thats released or up for trade,Possibly for a mid to low round draft choice or two this year and next?,I would.

    We have a future HOF at RB under contact who still has two knees and scored 13 TD last season.

    Faulk retired because he could not stay healthy. Defenses tackle guys in wheelchairs pretty easily these days. Why dont we go trade for Curtis Martin while we are at it?

    Faulk never retired,The Rams still have him under contract if I am not mistaken,He was out because of injury I believe,not officially retired.

    Rodney Harrison is about the same age and his knees/legs are not looking too good these days either...Maybe we should send him on his way too? :rolleyes:

    Or maybe we will draft David Ball as our RB even though he plays WR for UNH. Give me a break.

    This is not the same guy as 4 years ago. He is broken down and not worth anything. We do not bring in a guy just because he is a future HOFer. Heck, lets get Michael Irvin. Dude, could please at least think through these things before you post? You even suggest trading more than one draft pick for Faulk. This is ridiculous. Comparing Rodney to him is stupid. Rodney's injuries have not been a result of physical breakdown. They are freak sports injuries.

    That's great logic. Following your moronic idea, we should sign Jerry Rice. I mean, he's a future Hall of Famer, and that would be so totally awesome!!!!!

    I guess it no longer matters if a guy needs crutches to play or not.

    What you said, and one more thing, Rodney is already on the team and a very key inspirational leader on and off the field, besides what he does physically.

    Hey here is something else we could get from the Rams: "Despite the altered base salaries, the Rams remain on the hook for about a $4 million cap hit once Faulk retires — in the form of unamortized signing bonus money from past renegotiations."

    Why not we have the cap room?

    The only team I can think of that would be seriously interested in Marshall Faulk is ESPN.....he would be another crappy announcer/analyst they can add to their existing bunch (Jaws excepted).

    Hey....do you think they might be looking for a replacement for Clayton?
