The Rams are fianlly stacked with telent at the TE position this season. Back in the Mike Martz days, the offense hadly used a TE, and when they did, he usually just tried to block. One of the first things on Scott Linehan's mind when he arived in St. Louis was to upgrade and use the TEs. One of the first things he did was trade away then starting TE, Brandan Manumaleuna on draft day to the Chargers. He then selected two TEs ion the Draft, Joe Klopfenstein and Dominique Byrd. Then this offseason, when the oportunity came up of signing a talented TE, the Rams took it by signing Randy McMicheal from the Dolphins. With so much depth, where does this leave Aaron Walker? Well, Walker player well last season when he saw the field and Linehan noticed this. Though Walker will have to battle for playing time, he should get some. He realizes his situation and decided to sign his one-year, $850,000 tender offer with the club today. Though his future is unsure, he should try and make the most out off his situation this season.
Next restricted free agent that needs to resign is Brandon Chiller. That deal should be worked out in the near future
