Ive got a slightly different take on the Littleton situation. Not saying its right, only that its different!
Joe Barry, Rams LB coach, ex Redskins wrote:"When we were in Washington we loved him, I was on the table the entire third day of the draft to draft him."
Last season, as a rookie, he was an ST Ace, but Wade liked him that much they were already designing specific packages - just to get him on-the-field.
When Barron went down (not uncommon) they were happy for him to get the nod - even as a rookie.
Hes a playmaker
Last 3 starts hes been Rams leading tackler twice and picked off both Mariota & Carr.
There are a cpl reasons why they moved on from Ogletree - hes one.
This off-season hes: added 10lbs, switched over inside positions & been given the play calling role.
Littleton is an FA after the 2018, but
ill bet sandies or real money hes not going anywhere. Good teams dont lose their own & Rams have $36m in cap space next season atm (Rams schooling the league in contract structures right now)
Now Mark Barron on the other hand?
30 next season
Penultimate year of his deal
Counts $9m vs the cap
Rams save $5m if they cut him
For a 30yo hybrid LB on a team with a lot of money spread elsewhere? Wouldnt be shocked if they moved on from him in the slightest.
Personally, i think Kiser is the long term add for Barron owners. Wilson will be in a camp fight and top back up to both. Not sure what the Hager experiment is, but that will likely continue as team friendly depth. Wilson & Hager both FA this offseason, too.Dynasty:
Like both, but would be swept up in hype for neither atm.
The price now is not what the price might be in 3-4 weeks.
Its going to be interesting to see who has the bigger impact on production: Foster or Barron. Neither LB has played a competitive snap with the other yet iirc, but theres a real possibility.
In terms of natural talent, Warner the better overall player imho. In terms of situation? Im less wary of the Rams spot overall, but happily concede there is another narrative thereRedraft:
Both more than fine. But see above: That production might be different for both shortly.
Bit like Zach Vigil (tho far, far, far, far less given or precipitous) when Vontaze gets back, not overspending FAAB $, but would burn WW priority on one or the other if im hurt at LB for sure
