The grand Mike Sims-Walker experiment in St. Louis ended today when the Rams traded a conditional sixth-round pick to the Broncos in exchange for Brandon Lloyd.
That’s from the St. Louis Post Dispatch, which reports that the Rams cut Sims-Walker after the Lloyd trade was completed.
Sims-Walker -- who was signed in the offseason as a free agent to a one-year deal worth $3.7 million -- was supposed to be a nice pick-up for the Rams, but he only tallied 11 catches for 139 yards this season. He also had made a habit of dropping key passes, and on Sunday vs. the Packers, St. Louis deactivated him.
For his part, Sims-Walker seemed to be handling things well, publicly at least. Shortly after the news broke, Sims-Walker tweeted, “Wanna thank the rams organization and fans for the short stay, I am a better player and Man because of yall, best of luck....”
In other Rams news, the team has announced that quarterback Sam Bradford has a high ankle sprain and that he’s day to day.
