I read it on a premium content site a couple minutes ago... good addition for the Rams.

Little/Hall/Rice= a pretty good rotation

I would imagine. Hall is still a great pass rusher, but having Little and Rice on 3rd and long Shocked watch out.

Great news in my opinion. Rice probably won't start over James Hall but he'll come in on situational pass plays to get pressure on the QB kind of what Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila did with the Packers. I saw that he visited today but I didn't think he would sign. He is getting old but I think there is some pass rushing skills still left in the tank.

It better not be an expensive contract....we have Steven Jackson's contract to worry about next year, and we just signed Bulger to a huge deal. I think it's a good signing, but we have other players we gotta worry about too.

The only way i wont be upset about this signing is if we got him for very cheap. Someone please post the contract details if they come out...

er...I think "Great" is kind of a terrible word to use.

Id say they have a slightly above-average line. But im telling you right now, Adam Carikker will be a stud and should easily be the best man on that D-line.

Good signing.

He obviously won't do much against the run but he should be a good pass rush specialist.

I donít know how this is going to upgrade there Run Defense, which is the major problem in there defense but I guess its a good depth signing.
He could come in 2nd and 3rd down and just go after the passer with Leonard Little.

Forget about Leonard Little? Carikker is not even going to be close to Little next year.

This will certainly improve their pass rush... but Rice has never been much of a run stopper. I wonder if he might just be a 3rd down specialist.

THat will most likely be his only role. People tend to forget that we got James Hall to stop the run and so far throughout the preseason he has shown great ability to. Rice is just for depth and pass rush only.

Good pick up for the Rams.

I think he still has a few good years left in him.
