UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS
--TE Billy Bajema has been a solid blocker in the past, but his play fell off in 2011. The addition of Mike Mulligan means he probably won't be re-signed.
--S James Butler was one of former coach Steve Spagnuolo's first signings in 2009, but he never played to the level expected. He can be a role player, but it will be somewhere else in 2012.
--WR Mark Clayton wasn't able to come back in 2012 from a serious knee injury the season before and ended up on IR again after playing sparingly. His career might be over.
--QB A.J. Feeley injured his thumb after taking over for an injured Sam Bradford last season and wasn't able to play again. It is unlikely that he will be re-signed after the Rams re-signed Kellen Clemens.
--DT Gary Gibson has been a solid producer inside in the rotation, but his future with the Rams is in doubt with the change in the coaching staff.
--OL Adam Goldberg has filled in at four positions on the line in recent seasons and has contributed needed depth. With the addition of other backup linemen, Goldberg won't return.
--CB Rod Hood was signed when injuries hit the cornerback position and was solid by the end of the season. There appears to be no interest in re-signing him.
--CB Justin King played through injuries last season, but is nothing more than a nickel back. He was pressed into a starter's role because of injuries.
--T Mark LeVoir is still looking for a team, and the Rams have shown little interest.
--RB Jerious Norwood was never able to show the speed he has and didn't contribute much to the running game or special teams. It seems unlikely he will be re-signed.
--LB Brady Poppinga started on the strong side, and improved as he became comfortable with the defense. However, the odds are long that he will be re-signed.
--TE Stephen Spach is a blocking tight end that didn't play much during the 2012 season after being signed following his release by Arizona in the cutdown to 53 players.
--WR Cadillac Williams had some productive moments, but not many. Although the Rams have little depth at the position, Williams isn't likely in their plans.
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (not tendered offers)
--DE C.J. Ah You (not tendered as RFA) was a favorite of the previous coaching staff, and he remains unsigned.
