The Rams are happy to have Mike Sims-Walker, and the feeling is mutual.
"We've always liked him," general manager Billy Devaney said. "He was nicked a little bit last year with an ankle (injury) that hampered him. He tried to play through it, but you could see that he wasn't 100 percent. The guy scored 14 touchdowns over the last two years, so he's got some ability. That's what we were looking for — a bigger guy that can run a little bit."
"They don't know how excited I am to be here," he said. "This is a blessing. I call it the perfect situation. I wouldn't want to be nowhere else."
"Sam Bradford. Josh McDaniels. The wide receiver corps that we do have," Sims-Walker said. "Very underrated. I promise you. Very underrated. I train with some of the best receivers in the game. I've seen a lot, I've studied a lot of the best receivers in the game. Trust me, these guys are right there. We've just got to get it together, go out here and grind every day, compete with each other, and we'll be fine."
With Josh McDaniels calling the plays and Sam Bradford throwing the ball, there is a lot of potential the St. Louis offense for one or two receivers to break out. Danny Amendola and Mike Sims-Walker seem to be the best bests, and Lance Kendricks has a lot of upside at TE.
