Rams Lose Amendola To Patriots

The Rams will have to make due without wide receiver Danny Amendola. NFL Network reports the veteran wide receiver has agreed to a five-year, 31.5-million-dollar contract with the New England Patriots. He fills the void left by Wes Welker, who agreed to a two-year deal with Denver. Amendola spent the last four seasons with St. Louis.

If the Rams sign free-agent left tackle Jake Long, it apparently won't sit well with current left tackle Roger Saffold. According to the "Post-Dispatch," his agent says Saffold does not want to make the switch to right tackle, but stopped short of saying he would request a trade. The Rams appeared on the verge of signing Long on Wednesday.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
