"That's not in the plan for the Rams, who consider Jennings an injury risk himself after his 2012 season," wrote SI.com's Don Banks on Monday, "and like many teams, are wary of Bowe's decreased effort level after he earns a big pay day."
The concerns over Jennings and Bowe are not a surprise. In his free-agent wide receiver primer, Around The League's Gregg Rosenthal noted Jennings carries risk due to his knee and groin issues over the past two seasons. One scout already has admitted that Bowe scares him to death because his motivation might vanish as soon as he lands a big contract.
Said to be high on 2012 draft picks Chris Givens and Brian Quick, the Rams reportedly are averse to the idea of reaching out for the sake of need. That same philosophy has left the offense severely undermanned in the playmaker department since drafting quarterback Sam Bradford at No. 1 overall in 2010.Follow Chris Wesseling on Twitter @ChrisWesseling.
