Today the St. Louis Rams signed Lamarcus Joyner, who they traded up to land. The team was afraid that Jeff Fisher’s former team would jump up to draft him.
Fisher said immediately afterward that he was worried that Tennessee would take Joyner, and the Titans trading down after the Rams traded up for Joyner seems to suggest that there’s a good chance Fisher is right.
But Michael Silver of NFL Media, who was in the Rams’ draft room, suggests that Fisher had more than just a hunch that the Titans wanted Joyner.
“I don’t know how we did it,” Fisher said afterward. “I just had a feeling.”
This is great news for the Rams who will need Joyner to come in and play a vital role in his rookie year at least on special teams.
