This is GREAT news for St Louis fans as they seem less likely to move to LA.  Jags, Bills, and Vikes are still on the list to move.......

Could Steve Smith's career be rejuvenated in St. Louis?  It is probably about as good of a situation for him to find himself, at least.  From "The REAL Feed":

Get this... Amendola's injury, a sort of run-of-the-mill broken collarbone, was actually life-threatening and is sort of career- or at least season-threatening because it broke in an unusual inward way... From "The REAL Feed":

Amendola dodged life-threatening injury (http://nfl.si.com/2012/10/07/danny-amendola-narrowly-avoided-life-threatening-injury-thursday/?xid=si_nfl)
SI.com: NFL (07.10.2012 12:27)

Fantasy footballers need to note this. If it broke that way once, if it breaks again, it is probably inclined to break that way.  I pray that never happens, but it is exactly that sentiment among team doctors that may severely delay in his return.

Rams win the sweepstakes for arguably the most-coveted left tackle in free-agency this offseason.  This surely gives a boost to Bradford and whoever ends up toting the rock in St. Louis.  From "The REAL Feed":
