Rams stay 'thin' at wide receiver

St. Louis Post-Dispatch - [Full Article]

The Rams had five players in for tryouts at Rams Park, but no wide receivers. They did sign a wide receiver Tuesday — Nate Jones — but it was to their practice squad.

So all indications are the team will enter the regular season with only four wide receivers on the active roster: Donnie Avery, Keenan Burton, Laurent Robinson and Derek Stanley. Robinson is the "senior" member of that group, entering his third NFL season.

"In some regards, yeah, we're thin," coach Steve Spagnuolo said Monday. "We wanted to keep what we thought were the best 53. And it doesn't always lay out the way you did it way back in May."
