New Rams RB Lance Dunbar said Sean McVay "had me going" when they sat down to talk about his role on the team. "He had me ready to play. ... They just looked at me the same way I looked at myself." Dunbar, who brings speed and an ability to catch passes out of the backfield, will probably be used similarly to the way Chris Thompson was used with the Redskins. He thinks he can complement Todd Gurley. "We have two different styles," Dunbar said. "If you mix my style with his style, it brings a lot to the table."

Conor Barwin said his free agency pretty much came down to the Rams and Bengals. "Ultimately," he said, "I thought it was the better opportunity for me to be in LA, be in a defense I had success with." Re-joining defensive coordinator Wade Phillips certainly factored into that. Barwin struggled when the Eagles went to a 4-3 last year, but said the tough part was moving to the right side of the field; not necessarily acting as a down lineman. With the Rams, he'll stay on the left side and act as a Sam linebacker. On nickel packages -- which are implemented most of the time in today's NFL -- he'll be a left defensive end (Robert Quinn will remain on the right). "I'll bring a lot of versatility," Barwin said.

USC cornerback Adoree' Jackson grew up near East St. Louis and still rooted for the Rams in their first year in Los Angeles (except when they played the Bills, who had some notable former Trojans). On the possibility of getting drafted by them: "I would just tell people -- they probably won't know -- I played for the St. Louis Rams. ... It wouldn't be bittersweet. I'd be excited. It would be a little bummer, because I'm not back home where I grew up, but I'd still be playing for my favorite team. Wherever they go, I'm there."
